DEX aggregators trading volume reached $6 billion

These exchanges witnessed a 50% raise at the start of last month. While 1inch is still in the lead in term of DEX aggregators trading volume with a 53% share in the value, oX is gradually on its way to topple with just 42% since the start of this month. 1inch was boosted by recent funding round that it enjoyed taking in an investment of about $175 million.
