Partner News: Upbit to List Emercoin on Its Exchange, Giving New Boost to Cryptocurrency
Largest Korean Exchange’s Move Comes After Bitfury Invests in Technology
SEOUL, April 19, 2018 — Upbit, the largest digital asset trading platform in South Korea, has started listing Emercoin on its new public exchange, providing a major new platform for the cryptocurrency.
Emercoin, an emerging leader in blockchain business services, has grown significantly over the past year. Last month, Emercoin announced it is working with Coca-Cola, the U.S. State Department and the Bitfury Group on a blockchain-based pilot project to combat forced labor in the supply chain. Emercoin also recently named renowned technology expert and Olympic gold medalist Eun Lee as a technical advisor and ambassador to Korea.
“Upbit’s decision to list Emercoin confirms our growing popularity and strength,” said Eugene Shumilov, CEO of Emercoin. “We are excited about this move, which enables us to reach an even wider audience of traders in Korea, Asia and around the world. We are building a community and developing pilot projects that will help companies design innovative blockchain solutions for customers.”
Upbit currently handles roughly $1.8 billion per day, according to Coinmarketcap. Launched in October 2017 by Dunamu, Upbit is supported by KakaoTalk, the largest messaging app in Korea.
Upbit’s move comes after Bitfury, the world’s leading full-service blockchain technology firm, started to invest and support the Emercoin Blockchain as a way to expand the scope of applications it designs for customers.
Emercoin is an emerging leader in secure, distributed blockchain business services.
