I've queried Gdax API in the past and it seems that the API is currently returning a completely different data set for 'Volume'.

For example, when I queried the API for historical BTC prices around 1 year ago I got the following result set:

Epoch | Low | High | Open | Close | Volume

1517356860 9946.58 9998.42 9990.11 9946.59 2.66059942

1517356920 9927 9954.9 9935 9940.62 4.23884531

1517356980 9904.11 9940.63 9940.63 9909.12 2.19973319

1517357040 9909.12 9947.26 9909.2 9947.25 5.91939066

1517357100 9947.26 9995 9947.26 9989.98 5.56216334

1517357160 9909.12 9990.56 9990.56 9909.13 8.78513173

1517357220 9909.12 9948.97 9909.13 9946.1 5.03904978

1517357280 9946.1 9962.83 9946.11 9950.22 3.86148175

1517357340 9918.5 9950.22 9950.21 9918.51 5.53564686

1517357400 9918.51 9934.21 9918.51 9927.12 0.98890742

However, when I query API for same time frame I now get the following data set:

1517356860,9946.58,9998.42,9990.11,9946.59,12.75530468

1517356920,9927,9954.9,9946.58,9940.62,15.2790945

1517356980,9904.11,9940.63,9940.63,9909.12,15.94836064

1517357040,9909.12,9947.26,9909.13,9947.25,24.33637294

1517357100,9947.26,9995,9947.26,9989.98,21.57384641

1517357160,9909.12,9990.56,9989.99,9909.13,18.36038141

1517357220,9909.12,9948.97,9909.13,9946.1,15.38557231

1517357280,9946.1,9962.83,9946.11,9950.22,5.47653084

1517357340,9918.5,9950.22,9950.21,9918.51,11.45337408

1517357400,9918.51,9949,9918.51,9927.12,9.57149122

As you can see the 'volume' (last column) almost never matches previous data set while other columns match most of the time but not always.

What is the explanation for the discrepancy observed and which data should be relied on?

Thanks
