One of the biggest cryptocurrency platforms in the industry and all across the world, Coinbase has said that there was a significant spike on its bitcoin purchase volume on the 12th of March just following the market downturn.

When you compare it to the average numbers over the past 12 months, the total traded volume on the platform jumped six times with a 3X jump in trading and doubled in terms of its regular users.
On top of this, even though there was a lot more activity with other cryptocurrencies such as XRP and ETH, bitcoin was the standout digital asset. Cording to the report, purchases in bitcoin increased 7% from 60%.
