Decentralized exchanges saw their busiest month ever in terms of trade volume, according to new market data.

The raw figures, collected from Dune Analytics, show that DEXs posted a monthly volume of $1.51 billion for June. This development represents a month-over-month increase of 70% – compared to May's $894.2 million – and a 46% increase over the previous all-time high in March, which came in at $1.03 billion.

As the data shows, June's volume data represents the second time that trade activity surpassed the $1 billion mark. By comparison, June 2019 saw a DEX trade volume of $325.9 million.
