It was a good week for San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Kraken as the company announced that on Friday, May 5, 2017, it set a new record for trading volume across all digital assets in a 24hr period at $178,521,474.

This number topped Kraken’s previous record set on March 17, 2017, by 25%.

BTC/EUR volume led the way with over $47 million traded, and ETH/EUR volume came in second with over $25 million traded. BTC/ETH conversions were also in high demand. Surprisingly, the crypto-to-crypto based trading pair exceeded $20 million in volume to place as the third most traded asset.
