Two leading digital currency trading platforms, Bitfinex and Ethfinex, recently announced the addition of four new tokens to their portfolio. The new virtual currencies are Lympo, Utrust, BLOCKv, and DADI. Bitfinex usually deals in cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, while Ethfinex is a hybrid Ethereum crypto trading platform.
The extra tokens were added after a community vote which was conducted on the Ethfinex platform. During this vote, users from both exchanges were presented with an opportunity to determine the tokens they desire to be listed on their respective trading platforms. Instead of the conventional method of relying on obsolete listing fees that most trading platforms use, Bitfinex and Ethfinex usually leave this decision to their members. This ensures that new additions are popular within their member communities.
All 4 tokens will also be made available for trading on Bitfinex as of 17.00 CET! https://t.co/azrDqsodbO
