ViaBTC to Launch New Cryptocurrency Exchange in UK




ViaBTC is instituting a new cryptocurrency exchange that is based in the UK.

The exchange’s base cryptocurrency would be bitcoin cash, which forked away from the main bitcoin blockchain earlier this year.

CoinEx, which was integrated on December 4 according to public filings, will provide trading pairs for bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum, just to name a few, ViaBTC disclosed in a statement.

The mining pool, which is based in China, had run an exchange in the world’s most packed nation but shut the operation down after regulators moved to bar cryptocurrency trading in the country.

The mining pool was one of the earlier backers of bitcoin cash, and its earlier exchange provided services around the cryptocurrency.

These days, the company is establishing its base in the U.K., having spoken of the launch in late November on social media.

“The reason we chose [bitcoin cash] over [bitcoin] is that it has much faster transactions with low fees and better performance in terms of usability,” Sara Ouyang, ViaBTC’s chief operating officer, shared in a statement.

Plans for the future include upkeep for margin trading as well as derivatives contracts related to cryptocurrencies, said Ouyang.

The firm is also working on an over-the-counter trading platform to “supplement the ecosystem,” Ouyang said.
