Bitcoin hit $35,200 levels starting this week, keeping up with the historic trend of price surge in the month of October. ‘Uptober’, as popularly known by the Crypto industry, has been usually favorable for the market since token prices are seen to increase. This year was no different as Bitcoin hit surprising peaks alongside tokens such as Ethereum, Solana, and Ripple, among others.
While various factors have played a role in the price rally of key tokens, we identified how users on WazirX interacted with tokens in the month of October.
The tokens on the exchange in descending order of volume were BTC, XRP, WRX, SHIB, ETH, TRX, LOOM, FLOKI, and GALA. The tokens that had the most traders were SHIB, BTC, and USDT.

However, the highest number of traders were from Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, and Delhi. This indicates that traders from these states engaged in low ticket transactions even though they were more in number compared to the highest contributing states.
