Decred (DCR), a community-directed cryptocurrency designed to be a superior store of value, today announced it has been listed on crypto exchange, OKCoin — marking Decred’s first fiat-pairing in the U.S. where OKCoin is available in select states.
Starting today, March 13th, authorized OKCoin customers can deposit and withdraw Decred (DCR), and starting March 14th, they can trade against USD, BTC, and ETH.
Only a handful of altcoins, now including Decred, have secured fiat on-ramps for users within the United States.
