#BitMEX Trades 1 Million Bitcoin (BTC) In A Bearish Market, Setting Industry Record Yet Again
For the second time in two weeks, BitMEX has hit a daily turnover of 1 Million Bitcoin (BTC). This milestone was reached on the 8th of August 2018 and during a period of uncertainty in the crypto markets due to a declining BTC value. The exact 24 hour trading volume was 1,027,214.62 Bitcoin and the last time the exchanges surpassed 1 Million was on the 25th of July this year. BitMEX CEO and Co-founder Arthur Hayes is quoted as saying the following with regards to the 1 Million BTC milestone:Once again meeting our own record of 1 million bitcoin traded within 24 hours is a major milestone for the crypto-coin market and testament to the strong community BitMEX is growing.
