Jun 12 · 3 min read

How can it be that it’s June already?! We’ve had an extremely busy year so far, and we’re not slowing down! Here’s all the latest…

A week in

  • As you probably know already, May was an extremely eventful month for us here at Our CEO, Bill Heyn, has — as usual — summed up everything perfectly in his monthly open-letter to you, our loyal users. Get the lowdown on everything and read the full letter on our Medium page.
  • We added another coin to the exchange this week. TRX is ready and waiting for you! Start trading now.

What’s coming up

As we said, we don’t believe in slowing down… We have a loooong list of things we’re working on and in the upcoming weeks, we plan to:

  • Ramp up our all new marketing campaigns. There’s a lot to be excited about here. Get ready to see everywhere!
  • Continue to squash bugs, work on UI/UX and improve the exchange’s operations, specifically:
  • Re-launching our automated OTC platform; – Adding a Request for Quote (“RFQ”) feature, as well as price streaming; – The launch of our re-designed, improved and generally super-duper AML/KYC process, making account approvals easier and more convenient for you (and your referrals!); – Adding to our fiat offerings, with new currencies and new PSPs. Watch this space!

Happy Birthday TIOmarkets!

Last week saw the sensational trading launch of our sister-company, TIOmarkets! …You may be able to gauge our ever-so-slight excitement.

We opened the doors following an exceptional 10,000 sign-ups on our website. We even received endorsement by a few celebrities, including bestselling author, Grant Cardone, and the cool-beverage inspired rappers — Ice-T and Snoop Dogg!

We also shared some behind-the-scenes photos of our celebrations. It was a super day!

Umm… Why are you still here?
