HitBTC is wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Dear traders,

It’s been a fantastic year for us all – with ICOs raising more than 7 billion dollars, blockchain technology implemented for voting in Switzerland, and Malta creating a hub for favorable regulation for promising projects. In 2018, we have come much closer to mass adoption of crypto. The rate of technological advancement has been unprecedented, and we are hoping for this to continue next year. The blockchain technology market is maturing year after year and we cannot wait to see what 2019 brings!

We want to thank our traders, who have become the HitBTC ambassadors, advocating us to the whole crypto community. You are the ones that have helped us become better both in our technology and services, with your constant feedback being a priceless asset. We love you to the moon and back.

Our growth would be impossible without the real drivers of technology – the projects that offer their tokens and coins for trading. The decentralized ecosystem of blockchain thrives, as the developers across the globe come together to create something unique, and disrupting yet another industry. Keep on thinking, keep on building!

This year, we have integrated over a hundred projects and listed an amazing 500 tokens, with over 200 new coin pairs, reaching 900 tokens in total. We have pushed the boundaries of our aspirations as a cryptocurrency exchange, keeping the well-deserved title of a top-tier player in the industry.

For next year, our primary focus is to continue improving the quality of our service and provide you with the best experience through our passion for crypto. We have a series of enhancements planned for the next year, and some amazing projects lined up to be integrated. Stay tuned!

Warmest thoughts and best wishes for a beautiful Christmas and a happy New Year filled with health, happiness, and success!

BCH Hard Fork Update

Dear traders,

As you may know, the fork for Bitcoin Cash is planned to happen on November 15. The development expectations for BCH have divided it into two separate coins, BCHSV and BCHABC.

In the previous blog post, we announced the full support of the pre-fork trading for BCHABC and BCHSV. Now we would like to share our strategy for the full support of the network during and after the hard fork to make the transition as smooth as possible.

During the time of transition, you will be able to trade all of the three currencies involved. The converter of BCH into BCHABC and BCHSV and back will also remain accessible.

HitBTC product update: Post Only orders

Dear traders,

Today we introduce the new “Post Only” option for limit orders, also known as “Add Liquidity Only” orders.

Usually, traders use Post Only orders to avoid paying the Taker fee and prevent faults of entry, as incorrect orders would fail to be executed.

How it works:

  1. Upon arrival to the matching engine, a check will be performed to ensure that the Post Only order does not remove liquidity from the order book.
  2. In case any part of such order matches with a pre-existing order, it is immediately removed before executing.
  3. Post Only limit order resides in the order book until it is filled as a regular limit order.

In other words, this order type guarantees that the order only brings liquidity to the market, and never removes it.

HitBTC launches pre-fork trading for the upcoming Bitcoin Cash hard fork

HitBTC, a top-tier cryptocurrency exchange officially announces its support for the upcoming fork of Bitcoin Cash. The pre-fork trading will be available for the two coins that are up to appear after Bitcoin Cash hard fork: Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHABC) and Bitcoin Cash SV (BCHSV).

The listing of the pre-fork coin pairs is a meaningful part of the exchange’s strategy. According to our vision, the market is maturing, and an increasing number of coins prove themselves trustworthy. So, providing the market participants with extra opportunities becomes a sensible commitment for the crypto exchanges in the first place. By allowing our users to trade Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHABC) and Bitcoin Cash SV (BCHSV), we are encouraging the free choice of our community to support either of the new chains.
