According to Kimchi Premium, the market performance of leading crypto assets such as Bitcoin on the South Korean-based crypto exchange is expected to exchange hands at a higher price. Trading digital assets using the Kimchi Premium chart is 30% higher than international crypto exchanges.

On the contrary, the differences in trading volumes were suspected to be linked with ongoing wash trades in the crypto space.

SEC Classification of Digital Assets 

The XRP trading volume differences come when the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) classified Ripple native token XRP as a commodity instead of security. Also, the CFTC official considered Bitcoin and Ethereum commodities when settling for the Binance lawsuit.

The CFTC classification created heated debate among the Ripple community and the Security Exchange Commission (SEC). On March 28, there were swirling rumours that CFTC classification triggers the XRP price to increase.
