## Cycle 11 Report

Overall trading activity in February was strong -- there were 2903 trades on the network, the second-highest ever. 

Fiat trades in particular continue their consistent upward trajectory:

Hence [the upcoming focus on payment methods](https://github.com/bisq-network/roles/issues/38#issuecomment-599561611) to increase fiat trade size. We know this is the core of Bisq's mission, and where it excels. Historically trade size seems heavily influenced by market price (e.g., during 2017 hype cycle, mean and median trade sizes were hovering in the 1000 USD range, but then dropped to about 400 USD). Right now, especially in the USD market, trades are much smaller on average than at any point in the past.

>From a markets perspective, it seems that XMR, JPY, and L-BTC have the highest chances of boosting volume with higher-size trades. It remains to be figured out what actually drives those markets in order to get more consistent activity from them.

In March we launched a [significant initiative](https://github.com/bisq-network/projects/issues/14) to boost volume on the network.
