Bifinex expands its cryptocurrency exchange platform with addition of 12 new tokens
The demands for cryptocurrencies continue to rise and there is no sign of slowing down. Even as Google, Facebook and Twitter banned cryptocurrency ads on their sites, cryptocurrency exchanges continue to thrive.
Based in Hong Kong-based, BitFinex is the world’s leading digital asset trading platform, which offers state-of-the-art services for digital currency traders and global liquidity providers. It’s one of the largest cryptocurrencies in terms of volume and users. It has trading fees of .1% for makers, and .2% for takers and it is not currently to US users. In a post on its website, BitFinex announced support for a selection of the following 12 new Ethereum tokens on its trading platform:
- Aion (AION)
- IOSToken (IOST)
- Request Network (REQ)
- Raiden Network (RDN)
- Loopring (LRC)
- BnkToTheFuture Token (BFT)
- Cofound.it (CFI)
- WAX (WAX)
- SingularityNET (AGI)
- MedicalChain (MTN)

- DAI (DAI)
All tokens will be tradable against BTC, ETH and USD. The newly introduced token listings have a combined market capitalisation of $1.1B+ USD and represent a significant addition to Bitfinex, offering our traders greater exposure to a broader range of innovative digital assets. From decentralised exchange protocols and payment solutions to scaling and blockchain 3.0, we are pleased to provide a platform of support and growth for these teams and their respective communities.
