Cryptocurrency trading volumes slump 40% in June, data shows
LONDON, July 12 (Reuters) - Trading volumes at major cryptocurrency exchanges fell by more than 40% in June, research showed on Monday, with a regulatory crackdown in China and lower volatility among the factors depressing activity.
Spot trading volumes fell 42.7% to $2.7 trillion, with derivative volumes down 40.7% to $3.2 trillion, London-based researcher CryptoCompare's data showed.

The regulator said it sent Binance a warning letter on April 5 requiring the exchange to submit a written response, but it failed to reply within a specified time.
The SEC's announcement comes at a time when Binance and its affiliates are under scrutiny or have received warnings from global regulators, including the U.S., the U.K., Japan, the Cayman Islands, and Singapore. But Thailand's action appears to be one of the most significant actions to date against Binance since it is not just a warning but a criminal complaint directed at the exchange.
