Surprisingly in 3rd position is Kucoin with a BTC/USDT pool that performs well against many of the other exchanges indicating strong support for their product. Fourth and Fifth positions are held by Kraken and Bitstamp with USDT and USD pools.

I thought Coinbase was still up top but I guess Binance overtook. However, isn't the data you are looking at more about the liquidity and not really what they have in reserve?

Binance has the largest paired LPs across multiple tokens. They do currently own a significant amount there is an article somewhere which I can try find.

Great post with great information, didn't know about the exchange of positions between Coinbase and Binance. Thank you for sharing this information with us

Thank you for stopping by

Coinbase is slowing tumbling down the ranks while Binance is on an upward trajectory. Liquidity pools are really important in the buying and selling of crypto tokens. I always try to avoid low liquidity pools because you'll be stuck for days before your order gets filled.

Yup that is also the other challenging aspect of low LPs. High turn over is a good sign of healthy trading
