Bitstamp new interface

Bitstamp, a EU-licensed digital currency exchange, is expanding its offering with the addition of Litecoin and Ethereum trading.

LTC/BTC, LTC/EUR and LTC/USD trading pairs will be launched in early June with Ethereum following shorter after. Litecoin successfully activating Segregated Witness (SegWit) was “one of the key factors in our decision,” Bitstamp said. The company added that it “will continue to consider other digital currencies for inclusion on an ongoing basis.”

Commenting on the announcement, Bitstamp’s CEO Nejc Kodrič, said:

“Things are changing rapidly and we now have the fundamentals in place to give our traders all the services they’re used to, but in a safe and secure environment. Now is the right time to expand and continue giving our customers what they want.”

Bitstamp is also testing a margin trading service, currently in closed beta, which it plans to gradually open up access in the months ahead. A new trading interface is expected to be introduced soon as well. The platform launched XRP trading in January.
