WHAT IS LIQUIDITY

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoins are converted into cash for easy transactions which is known as liquifying assets. This process is affected by the number of buyers and sellers available in the market. 

Similarly, Liquidity can be explained as the process of converting a cryptocurrency into cash for easy flow of the transaction without any effect on its price.

In a highly liquid market, more buyers and sellers are available which helps in smooth transactions and fair prices for the exchange of assets. Additionally, as more buyers are available, the process of converting it into cash or any other cryptocurrency will take considerably less time and not experience a change in prices.

While on the other hand, a Low liquid market can be seen as fewer buyers and sellers available in the market which in turn, either increase or decrease the price at the moment. This will create a hassle as more buyers will have to wait till the prices drop or the sellers will wait till they get a good price for their asset. This is called Price Slippage, where the price changes significantly during the time it takes for the transaction. In any case, low liquidity is not preferable due to slower trading and potential price volatility during transactions.

MARKET DEPTH 

Market Depth refers to the concept of the measurement of liquidity of the market, cryptocurrency market. It measures the bids and asks in the market for a particular cryptocurrency. It can be calculated by calculating the supply and demand for different prices in the market. It helps traders and investors in understanding that the execution of trades of different sizes can be made easy.

Eventually, the concept of Order Books was derived. Order books are used to store, locate or analyze the data related to supply and demand.

A deep book order explains the market as a liquid market as it contains adequate order of supply and demand.

While a shallow order book is unfavorable because it will generate higher transaction costs due to a lower number of samples of supply and demand.

PRICE IMPACT 

Liquidity and price impact can be seen as interconnected because,

  •       In the case of High Liquidity, there will be the least price fluctuations due to the ample number of buyers and sellers available in the market. This leads to a lower price impact.
  •       In the case of Low Liquidity, there will be price fluctuations more than ever, also leading to instability of the market and creating unfavorable conditions. Trades will be delayed causing a higher price impact.

FACTORS AFFECTING LIQUIDITY

  •       Volume of Transactions.
  •       Traders, Investors, and participants in marketing.
  •       Rules and Regulations in the marketplace.
  •       Liquidity of the market.
  •       Market Depth

And various other peripheral market variables affect the market day to day changing its nature and price of the assets.

CONCLUSION 

We can conclude that the marketplace can act as a variable for the participants taking part in either trading or investing in the market. But the main goal remains here is the importance of liquidity in the crypto market. Liquidity is essential to create a stable and efficient market. Liquidity gives us the ability to make well-informed decisions and execute trades efficiently.
