It’s an exciting time to be at the forefront of blockchain technology. Every token we list, every partnership we make, every improvement in our business helps drive innovation. We had a very busy August – for a quick review of our announcements and activities, check out the info below.
US DOLLAR (FIAT) TRADING ROLLS OUT
If you saw our US dollar (USD) trading announcement in late May, you know we’re using a phased approach for adding markets and customers. We launched US dollar (USD) markets for Ethereum Classic (ETC) and XRP on August 20, 2018. Additionally, we shared that all eligible individual customers and corporate customers were enabled for USD trading.
