The Japanese Jen manages 64 percent of the global Bitcoin volume. The US Dollar is the next currency with 20 percent.

Coinbase is the exchange that manages 26 percent of the trading volume. Bitstamp and Bitfinex are next with 13 percent each one. Gemini, Poloniex and BitTrex account for 25 percent of the volume.
Bitcoin is expected to find a strong resistance at $11,000. It will also find an interesting support at $10,000. The currency could be fluctuating between $10,000 and $10,800 before touching again the $11K level.
The market is being invaded by big investors since more institutions are adding Bitcoin to their investment options. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange will soon launch Bitcoin futures to their platform. This will allow several institutional and important investors to allocate money in the cryptocurrency market. In the long term, Bitcoin price is expected to keep growing as the market penetration keeps increasing.
