BITMEX SHATTERS INDUSTRY RECORD WITH DAILY TURNOVER OF 1 MILLION BITCOIN
Seychelles — July 2018 — BitMEX, one of the world’s leading crypto-coin trading platforms, has broken the industry record for Bitcoin trading volume, with more than 1 million Bitcoin traded on the platform in 24 hours for the period closing July 24, 2018. The 1,041,748 Bitcoin traded on BitMEX shattered its previous record of 800,000 Bitcoin traded within 24 hours. The landmark moment for the cryptocurrency industry comes as the Bitcoin price continues its upturn to more than $8,000 USD. BitMEX CEO and Co-founder Arthur Hayes said: “The astronomical surge in trading volume, coupled with the steadily rising price of Bitcoin, is reflective of the market’s increasingly sophisticated understanding of the potential of Bitcoin to redefine global markets. The achievement was also largely thanks to ongoing capacity increases accomplished by scaling our engine architecture.
