According to PRNewswire report, Bitcoin.com plans to launch an exchange for cryptocurrency trading on September 2. It’s promised that from the launch moment, more than 50 trading pairs will be available, and subsequently, the trading of SLP tokens will be added.
Not surprisingly, the base pairs will include Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin Core (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) & Tether (USDT). Roger Ver, Executive Chairman of Bitcoin.com commented on the planned launch:
We're always working to make Bitcoin Cash and other digital assets more accessible to everyone. Back in June, we released Local.Bitcoin.com where you can buy and sell Bitcoin Cash specifically. Now, with The Bitcoin.com Exchange, you can diversify your cryptocurrency portfolio, too."
The platform promises a convenient interface, high liquidity and a powerful matching engine to support fast trading, which should ensure a comfortable exchange of dozens of cryptocurrency pairs. The global step for the exchange will be the addition of trade-in Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP) tokens, as Ver said the following:
We're on the cusp of something very exciting with SLP tokens. It's the beginning of a world where we can tokenize anything and, as people realize the potential this holds, they're going to start demanding a place to trade their tokens. That's why we'll be supporting SLP tokens on The Bitcoin.com Exchange."
Another nice bonus for potential exchange customers is a 25% discount on trading fees during the first three months, as well as the opportunity to win prizes worth more than $10,000. Such an opportunity is available to everyone who pre-registers on the platform and makes the first transaction within a week after its launch.
