In 2019, users transferred $673 billion on the Bitcoin network. This is 11% less than it was last year, according to Coinmetrics analytical service.

At the same time, this indicator is 4 times more than the total transaction value for 7 years: from 2009 to 2016, said Larry Cermak of The Block.

If not converted to the USD equivalent, users sent on-chain 92 million BTC over the past year.

Coinmetrics excluded from the calculations transfers between addresses belonging to the same user and other similar transactions that mix the same coins. The service also did not take into account movements in cold wallets.

The volume of transactions in dollar terms on the Ethereum network for the year amounted to only 13% of the BTC indicators.

The volume of online transactions closely correlates with the price of the first crypto and trading volumes - the higher the first indicator, the higher the price and volumes.

Recall that during ten years, BTC has risen in price by 9,000,000%.
