How we Built Token Graphs
Token Graph by Bloxy.info allows to visualize major money movements for the specified timeframe:
and selected currency.
We used Token Graph to build the picture of money flow before, during and after Binance suspension. We selected a part of the graph around major exchanges, including Binance, Bitfinex, Okex, UpBit and Kraken.
Also you can use the tool and experiment with the detail level controlled by a slider on the top of the graph:
You will see what huge effect Binance has on Ethereum flow of multiple tokens, especially own token, BNB.
Seeing is better than words…
Ether flow before the incident
Ether flow during Binance Suspension
Ether flow after Binance Suspension
TUSD ( Tether) token flow before the incident
TUSD ( Tether) token flow during the suspension
TUSD ( Tether) token flow after the suspension
BNB token flow before the incident
BNB token flow during the suspension
BNB token flow after the suspension
Quite interesting to see that during the suspension, the activity around BNB token even grown, especially on 10–11 May.
