Record trading volumes

McCourt also noted that, on May 13, Bitcoin traded a record daily volume of 33,677 contracts, equivalent to over 168,000 BTC ($1.705 billion as of press time). Furthermore, the year-to-date daily average number of Bitcoin futures contracts traded is 7,237, equivalent to 36.185 BTC (currently worth $62.9 million).
