Wash Trade

CoinGecko | 更新日: Mar 03, 2020
Wash trading is a way to artificially inflate the trading volume of any tradable assets on an exchange. To wash trade, a single party becomes both the buyer and seller to trade the asset back and forth at high speeds. This activity will be conflated into an exchange's regular trading volume to appear as if ther are a lot of trading activity on the market. This is ussually done either by a "market maker" to help a coin appear appealing to trader or by an exchange itself to trick traders into thinking they are trading in an active exchange.
