The Wootrade Network marched through May, partnering with leading projects, growing in volume, scaling WOO X, and onboarding community advocates.
The month of May started for Wootrade with a new all-time high in volume, traded mainly by the institutional clients on the network. For the first time, the 24-hour trading volume surpassed half a billion dollars, hitting $654,480,959 on May 4. The network’s monthly volume almost doubled April’s figure and set a new record at $8.45 billion.
A lot of this volume came from strong global trading activity prior to the May 18th correction. Wootrade acquires trading volume from three sources: Institutional clients, WooFi pools, and WOO X Beta users. The source of trading volume was explained in more detail here:
