DAN Shares Updated Monthly Stats

Jag Singh retweeted a DAN.com tweet from July of 2018 that shared the prior week’s sales stats and a bit of additional details about the sales that were closed on the platform:

The tweet caught my attention because the revenue number seemed like it was lower than I expected. I quickly noticed that the tweet was nearly two years old, so that explained why the revenue number seemed low to me.
