Bitfinex generated $21.4 million in revenue in the first quarter of 2020, nearly twice as much as it brought in during the final quarter of 2019.

According to new research from The Block, Bitfinex generated $21.4 million during the first quarter of 2020 - a 96% increase from the $10.91 million revenue in the final quarter of last year - and a small decrease from the $26.15 million revenue in 2019's third quarter.

Generally speaking, while Bitfinex is still the most liquid exchange out there, it has clearly lost some steam in recent quarters. Since January 2019, Bitfinex's share of total legitimate volume has dropped from 13.7% to about 5% in April.
