Third-Top Exchange OKEx Lists Ripple and Bitcoin Cash on Customer-to-Customer Platform
Malta-based major cryptocurrency exchange OKEx has listed Ripple (XRP) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on its customer-to-customer (C2C) trading platform, according to a press release shared with Cointelegraph on Feb. 22.
OKEx, the top third crypto trading market by daily trading volumes at press time, now allows users to buy or sell XRP and BCH with five supported fiat currencies: the British pound (GBP), Chinese renminbi (CNY), Vietnamese dong (VND), Russian ruble (RUB) and Thai baht (THB) on the OKEx C2C trading platform.
The Thai baht was added to the OKEx C2C platform in mid-February.
During the newest upgrade, all services on the OKEx C2C platform will remain as normal, the announcement states. The platform allows users to place orders with self-selected exchange rates and payment method, purchasing or selling crypto from other users using fiat with zero transaction fees.
The new listings are added to already supported biggest cryptocurrency Bitcoin (BTC), major stablecoin Tether (USDT), top altcoin Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC), the fifth top cryptocurrency by market cap at press time.
At the same time, OKEx has announced the delisting of three cryptocurrencies: on Feb. 25, OKEx will stop supporting 17th ranked cryptocurrency NEO (NEO), as well as QTUM (QTUM) and Exchange Union (XUC).
Recently, OKEx has listed four new crypto derivative pairs to its platform, enabling users to trade Bitcoin SV (BSV), QTUM, DASH (DASH) and NEO against Bitcoin or Tether on margin with a 3x leverage option.
The newly listed XRP coin is the third-top cryptocurrency by market cap at press time, having lost its top coin position in January. Recently, CEO and representative director of Japanese financial services giant SBI Holdings outlined Ripple as one of the reasons to remain optimistic about the future of the crypto industry.
Bitcoin Cash, a cryptocurrency created as a result of a Bitcoin hard fork in August 2017, is now ranked the sixth-top crypto by market cap. Recently, major United States-based cryptocurrency exchange and wallet service provider Coinbase has listed BCH on its Coinbase Wallet.
