The last session of the week saw a total of 469,014 units transacted by investors, higher than the 106,810 units recorded at the market on Thursday. This indicated that the trading volume for the day increased by 339 percent or 362,204 units.

Also, the value of shares exchanged by traders increased at the close of Friday’s session by 439 percent or N5.3 million to N6.5 million from N1.2 million on Thursday.

This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
