Why the Rename?
- Stakebase.com more directly communicates our platform’s mission–we are providing a one-stop-shop for all your staking needs. Unless someone is already familiar with ‘BITG’ (the trading symbol for Bitcoin Green)–the BITGEX name does not explicitly convey the purpose of the project. We believe stakebase.com is more user-friendly and will help us in our efforts to evangelize staking.
- The BITGEX name is very similar to Bittrex, Bitfinex, Bitmex, and a number of other major exchanges. Brand differentiation is an uphill battle if your name is just a few letters away from the leading incumbents’.
What specifically is being changed?
- Social media handles
- Official email addresses
All BITGEX.io site content, emails, and referral links will re-direct to stakebase.com.
The renaming process is will be rolled out of the next few days.
Do I have to do anything?
Will my login credentials and referral link still work?
Yes. All bitgex.io links will redirect to the new domain.
Is Stakebase still powered by Bitcoin Green (BITG) as the default quote-currency (trading pair denominator)?
Why change the name now?
Since we are relatively early in the development of this project, it is much more logistically simple to rename at this stage.
What’s Next For Stakebase?
We’ll be releasing our official listing procedures and kicking off our first coin vote competition as soon as stakebase.com is live and our socials are updated–stay tuned!
Any sneak peaks?
