Bitfinex adds Stellar (XLM), Verge (XVG), and BitcoinInterest (BCI)

Bitfinex, a leading cryptocurrency exchange offering services for digital currency traders and global liquidity providers,  today announced the introduction of two new token listings to its trading platform.

The newly introduced token listings in XLM, XVG have a combined market capitalization of over $9 billion USD and both tokens are currently positioned among the top 30 crypto coins, representing a notable addition to the Bitfinex trading platform.

Stellar (XLM) is a Silicon Valley-based nonprofit organization that supports the Stellar network – a free, open-source network that connects diverse financial systems and lets anyone build low-cost financial services – payments, savings, loans, insurance – for their community. The Stellar network enables money to move directly between people, companies, and financial institutions as easily as email. This interconnectivity means more access for individuals, lower costs for banks and more revenue for businesses.

Verge (XVG) is a decentralized blockchain platform and cryptographic token created with privacy in mind. Verge is fast, flexible, private and anonymous. More importantly, it’s a currency built to support widespread mass adoption as it scales across the globe. Verge makes it possible to engage in direct low-cost transactions – quickly, efficiently and privately, providing businesses and individuals with options for sending and receiving payments instantly.

BitcoinInterest (BCI), a proof-of-stake Bitcoin fork. Deposits for BCI have opened today, with trading set to be introduced as more deposits flow in. BitcoinInterest is a fork of Bitcoin allowing holders to stake their tokens to earn interest payments, without the underlying risk associated with trading. It has no fixed interest rates and users are rewarded in proportion to overall network staking activity. BCI tokens were airdropped to BTC holders on Block 505083 (January 22nd, 2018) and will be credited to Bitfinex holders towards the end of May 2018.
