How Listing.Help Supports Quick Cryptocurrency Exchange Listing Services
Listing.Help is an online service that promises to help get your token listed on top exchanges. The service describes itself as “the biggest assistant” for getting listed on top exchanges like Binance, Bittrex, and Huobi.
Obviously, there are a number of similar services online. Some are called ICO consultancy services. Others specialize specifically in listing tokens.
Major exchanges like Binance reportedly charge $6 million to list a token. Binance and other exchanges also require things like a large liquidity deposit, high trading volume (often provided by a maker bot), and other requirements.
Overall, getting listed on a top exchange can be difficult, and Listing.Help wants to help.
Listing.Help claims to have helped over 100 ICOs successfully list their tokens on top exchanges. The company’s clients have included Endor, BitClave, SmartMesh, ClearCoin, Covesting, B2BX, and 300 others. Listing.Help also claims to have signed NDAs that prevent them from disclosing other clients.
Ultimately, there are lots of companies that promise to list your token on an exchange, but Listing.Help might be one of the largest and most reputable.
Listing.Help Posts Document Online Showing Listing Requirements for Different Exchanges
A document appeared online earlier today that purportedly shows the requirements for getting your token listed on different exchanges. That document shows how long it can take to get listed, for example, as well as any additional conditions required by that exchange.
That document shows that it takes 15 to 60 business days to list a coin on Binance, for example. It takes 10 to 40 business days to list a coin on Bittrex and Okex.
Other exchanges have short turnaround times. BitBay, for example, can list your coin in just 1 to 10 business days, while CoinMarketCap (which isn’t an exchange) can add your token in 3 to 30 business days.
The document also mentions exchanges that have additional conditions, including:
- Gate.io: Requires $2 million of trading volume
- Binance: Only lists strong projects, requires CoinMarketCap listing, requires high volume
- Bittrex: Only lists strong projects
- Okex: Only lists strong projects
- Huobi: Only lists strong projects, requires CoinMarketCap listing, requires high volume
- Tidex: Monthly volume greater than 100 BTC (if the coin doesn’t meet this volume, it will be de-listed), no security tokens
- CoinMarketCap: Requires trading volume greater than $100,000 per day
How Much Do Exchanges Charge to List Tokens?

- Yobit: 3 BTC
- CoinExchange: 4 BTC
- Bitforex: From 20 BTC

How Does Listing.Help Get Your Token Listed?
It’s not totally clear how Listing.Help works. However, similar services will organize your application, leverage connections at the exchange, and pull strings needed to ensure your token gets listed.
A service like Listing.Help might also help you arrange a maker bot – something that’s purportedly required at major exchanges like Binance. A maker bot will buy and sell your tokens within the market to ensure sufficient liquidity among legitimate traders.
Listing.Help doesn’t outline their prices upfront. However, the document linked above claims the following:
“At many exchanges we are official representative of the listing.”
The document also adds that, “Often many exchanges do not list directly. Through us we can do it quickly.”
The company also recommends that many coins start with medium-sized exchanges. Most tokens, in their early days, don’t have the trading volume or reputation needed to get listed on major exchanges like Binance. That’s why Listing.Help recommends starting with more attainable exchanges like Yobit, IDEX, HotBit, and Mercatox. After listing your token at these exchanges and building monthly trading volume, you can then start approaching larger exchanges.
Who’s Behind Listing.Help?
Listing.Help is run by two online marketing professionals, including Alex Omark and Sergei Khitrov.
The pair list their Telegram contact information online (@alexomark and @serkhitrov). You can also email the company at [email protected].
Ultimately, we know surprisingly little about cryptocurrency exchanges and how they work. The business model of most crypto exchanges is shrouded in secrecy. Listing.Help is an online service that claims to help you get listed on major exchanges like Binance and Bittrex. In a document, the company has shared how much it costs – and how long it takes – to get listed on major cryptocurrency exchanges across the internet.
