Premine market update: ceasing trading and delisting the token

Dear traders,

Our main goal is to continue providing you with the richest choice of valuable instruments. We are constantly keeping our markets list up to date, tracking activity on each market and keeping an eye on major events taking place in crypto industry.

Premine (titled as PRE) markets have been losing their popularity recently. Eventually there were no trades performed at all, overall trading volume dropping to zero.

Furthermore, these markets have been serving as a source of possible confusion, since the Presearch project has also been historically using the PRE ticker. We have been receiving a lot of requests from our community to take action and change the PRS ticker to PRE.

Following those requests and keeping in mind the importance of keeping our stock up to date, we have developed the following course of action, coordinating it with all parties involved:

On the 16th of January:

  • Premine (PRE) will be removed from the terminal, trading process being suspended. All placed orders are going to be cancelled;
  • Premine deposits will be switched off;
  • Account balance and withdrawal option will be available until 23rd of January, 2018.

After 23rd of January, 12:00 UTC, Premine withdrawals will no longer be available in the account interface. You’ll be able to perform a withdrawal upon request to our support team.


Please mind that on January 23rd, the ticker PRE currently used for Premine will be transferred to the token Presearch (PRS at the moment of publishing the article). Presearch will be titled as PRE.

We remind you about the importance of checking the full currency name before taking any action with it. The full currency name is available in your account section.

We are grateful for your understanding and support in keeping HitBTC an exchange with the best choice of trading instruments.

Kapucoin – Archeological blockchain

Dear traders,


We are excited to announce the soon listing of KAPU, the coin of Kapu platform that aims to preserve the finds all around the world using the Blockchain technology.


History of the coin

The Capua coins (KAPU in oscus alphabet) were forged during the Second Punic War (218 BC) in one of the few cities in Italy that decided to ally with Hannibal to fight Roman hegemony. Capua had definitively interrupted relations with Rome and, in order to finance its expenses, forged and spread the coin along Atella and Calatia. Coins were forged with all three metals (bronze, silver, gold), but Capua was the only one of the three cities to issue precious metal coins. KAPU was also famous for its gladiatorial school that, along Rome and Pompei, represented the excellence of the empire’s schools. There were solely gladiators with a great stature and strength and they were trained to give birth to bloody spectacles to entertain the people and aristocracy. During these spectacles the man who was defeated, not only lost the match, but also life. It is precisely in this context that the imposing name of the gladiator Spartacus distinguished itself, who, forced to fight inside the Amphitheater Campano, he led the revolt of the slaves in 73 AD.

Introducing Deposit Fees on HitBTC

Dear traders!


This post was updated on January 16, 2018, to include the information regarding ETH, USDT and all tokens deposit fees.


Due to heavily increased demand, a large number of transactions passes through BTC and other networks. It leads to a significant amount of transactions waiting in the mempool, longer processing time and unprecedented fees.


We are announcing that a fixed fee for BTC, ETH, USDT and all tokens deposits is to be charged.


This measure is introduced in order to provide greater stability on our exchange. It would help facilitate processing of incoming transactions and maintain the liquidity and security of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether and all tokens on HitBTC at a level we deem worthy of our traders.


The deposit fees will be deducted from the amount of the incoming transaction. The fee amount for every token is shown below the deposit address. Please be advised that if your deposit is lower or equals the fee, the whole amount will be used for the commission and will not be refunded.





Statement on the upcoming BTC hard forks and IGNIS airdrop

Dear traders,

HitBTC is going to support two of the upcoming Bitcoin hard forks in case they take place, and IGNIS tokens airdrop. In this post we have accumulated the information about these events and the course HitBTC is going to take.


Bitcoin network has seen an unprecedented number of hard forks this year with two more planned to happen before the end of December. Hard forks aim to add new functionality to the original network and resolve its flaws and limitations. In Bitcoin’s case it usually includes increasing the block size and in generally decreasing the network overload.


Segwit2x, a project suspended in November, is now scheduled to happen on the block 501,451 which should be reached around 28th of December. The team behind it is mostly concerned about the significant delays in transactions processing and the largely increased fees, thus providing a solution to these problems is their main priority. Block size will be increased to 4 Mb and block creation time on Segwit2X chain will constitute 2.5 minutes. Find out more on the project’s official website.


Bitcoin God is a fork introduced by a Chinese blockchain investor Chandler Guo. The chain split is planned to happen at the block 501,225 approximately on December 25. The official website of the Bitcoin God introduces such features of the new network as smart contracts support, increased block size, lightning network implementation and zero-knowledge proof.  


Our exchange is going to support both Bitcoin forks, should they happen. We will be updating this post with further information on how we are going to proceed in each case, kindly check back on the news.


IGNIS Airdrop is powered by Jelurida, the company behind NXT and Ardor. On December 28 a one-time snapshot of NXT network will be conducted and on January 1 Ardor network with its very first child chain Ignis will be launched. Following the rules of this airdrop, for every NXT token the client will receive 0.5 IGNIS tokens. Please note that the tokens will be credited according to the amount of NXT held on main and trading accounts at the time of the snapshot on 28th of December. Pending transactions will not be included.


We are holding the finger on the pulse and closely monitoring all the hard forks and airdrop events. If more news emerge, we will update you. Please contact our support team in case of any questions.
