Why is the transaction volume on exchanges rather low?

FairCoin is designed and used for value exchange with real goods and services, not for speculation. Thus the trade volume on crypto - exchange markets is low compared to other crypto - currencies in relation to its market capitalization.

Thus, not just having a low trading volume but also a constantly decreasing amount of Faircoins available on the open markets are good indicators:

a) that the FairCoop and Faircoin community is aligned with goals of a real economy (circular economy) and continuously prefer FairCoin over other cryptos (like Bitcoin) and fiat money (like € or $).

b) that FairCoin owners are less and less interested in trading and those coins continue to flow into “supportive hands” of the ecosystem
