Bittrex, the U.S-based cryptocurrency exchange, has released a number of key business metrics for the second quarter of the year.

The coins added in order of addition: Rise, Waves, DigixDAO, Breakout, Project Decorum, The DAO, Krypton, Lisk, SARCoin, STEEM, Destiny, Memetic.
The exchange boasts that both Waves, which was added in June, and Lisk, which was added in late May, were listed first on Bittrex and debuted as top-ten coins and remained among the top dozen coins since their introduction. Furthermore, its latest figures show that over 95% of Steem and Waves trading is currently done through Bittrex.
