  • Transactions per day is an important metric in cryptos as it measures demand and is an indirect measure of the veocity of Bitcoin's market value.
  • Steady growth in transaction activity is an especially positive indicator in assessing a crypto’s price, as infrequent spikes in transaction activity could simply mean traders are profit-taking.
  • Since 6/29/18, Bitcoin’s daily transactions have increased 21.5% in a relatively consistent manner. 
  • BTC’s price broke past the $7,000 barrier on Friday and is currently trading at US$7,380.44.
