When will my favorite currency get a USD trading pair?

We’re starting with a limited number of pairs to evaluate our systems and processes, and our plan is to continue to add fiat trading to the top digital currencies on our platform. We’re reviewing the blockchain projects we already list, listening to our customers’ trading preferences and taking other important considerations into account as we decide which USD trading pairs will be next for fiat. Development teams with tokens currently listed on Bittrex may complete this form for consideration. 

We’re always exploring new, innovative blockchain projects and market opportunities, like fiat, that continue to uniquely position Bittrex in the industry. Also, our ardent commitment to security, compliance and incubating innovative blockchain projects provides customers and token teams confidence in the long-term growth of the platform. Today’s announcement is just the beginning -- we’ve got a lot planned this year to further expand the business and provide new opportunities for our customers.
