BAT was highly traded on Binance with the BAT/BTC pair, reporting a trading volume of $9 million. The second place was taken by UPbit. UPbit noted a volume of $8 million with the BAT/KRW pair. Bithumb followed UPbit as it noted a trading volume of $3 million with the BAT/KRW pair.

Though the exact reason for the hike cannot be pinpointed, Twitter user @DJThistle01 had a theory:

“$ZRX dropping into a support block
$BAT just pumped. they both were added to coinbase and experienced the same type movement back then.”

However, another Twitter user @MartyTalk, said:

“Had to take some profits on $bat with a +50% gain at 5100, still have my long position but that flip was just way too tempting.”
