These include CME Group, which gained 510 million USD and earned a revenue of 1.2 billion in the third fiscal quarter, as well as the Intercontinental Exchange, which announced 1.3 billion in revenue.

Plummeting trading volumes is yet another metric that concerns experts, and the figure was lower in July, mainly to the fact that Bitcoin’s price slumped below 30K USD.
