Our Market Metrics endpoints can retrieve the total volume traded by the exchanges in USD, the daily volume of assets on each exchange or the daily volume of pairs on each exchange.
In crypto, every exchange has a different definition as to what they consider "a day". Some may say it's 8-8, some say midnight to midnight, there is no standard. So the volume data you find online will not give you an apples to apples comparison between the exchanges. However, we normalize timestamps to GMT and break it down with the raw hourly data ourselves, which then allows you to compare the volume data across exchanges using the same time duration. This is available at the exchange, asset or pair level. It is very difficult to do this yourself as you would need all the raw hourly data in order to get these accurate values.
The metrics endpoints are available via REST API. The "latest" endpoints are updated over a rolling 24 hour period. The aggregations returned from these endpoints are done in real-time from the previous hour.
Example: If the current time of your request to the endpoint is 2:30PM, we will use the historical hourly data available in the database up to the bottom of the hour, so it would be from 2:00PM minus 24 hours.
The "historical" endpoints will provide each day's value from midnight to midnight UTC.
