Ark’s report, on the Bitcoin (C:BTC) network in 2021 alone, is $45 trillion this year.
Ark Invest’s crypto analyst Yassine Elmandjra shared a chart showing bitcoin trading volume over the past year, showing that its annual settlement volume is now four times that of global payments giant Visa Inc.

In fact, as Elmandjra pointed out, Bitcoin could be worth twice as much this year as its previous years combined.
Bitcoin has accumulated a total settlement of $60.67 trillion over its lifetime, which means that in 2021 it has accounted for nearly 70% of total transfers.
At the same time, transaction efficiency has steadily improved over the same period.
Last week, an average of $64.47 billion was moved through the Bitcoin network every day.
On-chain analyst Dylan LeClair highlighted that over the past seven days, the Bitcoin network has moved an average of $95,142 in fees of $1.
