Malta-based digital asset exchange OKEx launched euro (EUR) and Russian ruble (RUB) markets on its customer-to-customer (C2C) fiat-to-token trading platform, according to a press statement by the company. Very recently, the platform announced the launch of Turkish lira and British pound and Thai baht.
Users of the platform can now place orders with self-selected exchange rates and payment methods to buy or sell virtual financial assets with fiat currencies. OKEx C2C trading service offers a decentralised platform for the buying and selling of bitcoin (BTC), tether (USDT), ether (ETH), and litecoin (LTC).
“We strive for building a robust crypto ecosystem, that’s why we will never stop expanding and pushing crypto adoption forward. We are so thrilled about the expansion as our C2C platform is fostering the buying and selling of digital assets across Europe with the newly supported currencies,” said Andy Cheung, Head of Operations of OKEx.
“This is a big step forward. Given the recent Bitcoin price rally, the whole crypto market is giving a strong signal. We have good faith in the growth and development of blockchain technology under this bullish trend,” he added.
OKEx listed the British pound (GBP) and the Thai baht (THB) as two new currencies for trade on its over-the-counter (OTC) platform in late-January. The company also expressed commitment to the UK market despite Brexit woes. Very recently, OKEX unveiled its initial exchange offering (IEO) platform, dubbed “OK Jumpstart”. The platform also recently announced the launch of Turkish lira.
