India contributed more than 10 percent of last month’s USD/BTC trade volumes according to data from ARK’s Blockchain Products Lead Chris Burniske.

Reproducing a graph of major trade markets via Twitter on Thursday, Burniske highlighted India’s growing role in the exchange market, which accounted for over 10 percent of the total for the month to June 15.

Burniske added he was “curious” what this would mean for Bitcoin going forward.
