The cryptocurrency industry has come a long way from the days when it used to be tough for people to buy tokens online and hence, the emergence of Bitcoin futures did not come as a massive surprise for most market watchers. So what does newly-created crypto exchange Bakkt have in store? Let’s dig in.
Binance has reportedly closed its Shanghai office, where over 100 staff, including senior management, were employed, following a raid by Chinese law enforcement, according to sources cited by The Block.
Binance has sunk to 12th in the top ten cryptocurrency exchanges, according to the latest list published by London-based crypto data provider CryptoCompare.
The crypto space has grown at a breakneck pace over the course of the past few years and a fair share of the credit for that should go to mega crypto exchanges like Coinbase. Over the years, the company has introduced a wide range of products that have managed to further expand the crypto ecosystem, and on Thursday, it made another major announcement.
Binance has had its official account on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, banned due to unknown violations as the Chinese government tightens regulations on cryptocurrency.
Bakkt, the crypt subsidiary of the Intercontinental Exchange, has announced that it will begin holding the Bitcoin assets of its institutional investors, which was one of the most sought-after services of the platform prior to its launch in September.
Huobi, the popular Singapore-based crypto exchange, has announced that it will freeze all US accounts by November 13 due to the particularly stringent regulatory environment that has forced the exchange to prohibit US users.
One of the biggest reasons behind the remarkable growth of the cryptocurrency space is due to the establishment of big-ticket exchanges, and in that regard, Binance US could end up becoming one of the most influential. It is the world’s biggest crypto exchange by trading volume, and its entry into the United States is a major event.
Bakkt, the cryptocurrency trading platform launched by the Intercontinental Exchange, is planning to launch a consumer-focused app in the first half of 2020 to enable retail customers to make transactions with cryptocurrencies.
Over the years, crypto exchanges have become the most important part of the entire ecosystem, and among the many exchanges, Coinbase is definitely one of the most influential. It has grown into one of the biggest exchanges in the world and the exchange of choice for millions in the United States, the most important market for any business.
The cryptocurrency space has come a long way over the past five years, and one of the more important members of a growing ecosystem has been the global crypto exchange Huobi. The company has done a lot to increase awareness about the crypto sphere and in turn, has been one of the biggest contributors towards the current popularity of crypto.
The Bakkt Futures trading volume for Bitcoin (BTC) has gained almost 800% in just one day after a slow start to life for the long-awaited futures contract trading platform headed by the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE).
Over the years, the crypto exchange industry has evolved at a remarkably fast pace, and one of the well-known innovators in this space has been BitGo. Recently, the crypto exchange space has seen a spike in the development of staking services for customers, and in a new development, BitGo has decided to launch that service as well.
Over the years, Binance has consistently proven to be one of the most innovative crypto exchanges in the world, and hence, it is no surprise that it is currently the biggest exchange in the world by trading volume.
Over the course of the past few years, plenty of new crypto exchanges have come up that catered to a niche market, and CoinExchange was one of the better-known ones among them. In a new development, the exchange announced that it has decided to close down the business. The company stated that it was being closed down due to financial reasons.
Swiss stock exchange firm Six Group’s cryptocurrency trading platform Swiss Digital Exchange has announced that it will be launching an initial digital offering (IDO).
Over the course of the past few years, the crypto ecosystem in South Korea has grown quite quickly and one of the better-known crypto exchanges to have emerged during that time is Bithumb. Last year in October, the Korean crypto exchange had reached an agreement on an acquisition deal, but that has fallen through due to apparent payment difficulties.
Fusion Network, a blockchain-based stablecoin exchange, has announced that $6.4 million USD worth of FSN tokens have been taken from a compromised wallet.
One of the most important factors behind the growth of the cryptocurrency space is the existence of mega crypto exchanges. It has made it possible for more and more people to get involved in space and the biggest one is Binance.
Over the course of the past couple of years, crypto trading has turned into a legitimate vocation for a large number of people, and nowadays, the options when it comes to choosing an exchange are varied. Some years, people who wanted to trade in cryptocurrencies did not have many options, and the exchanges that were available did not often have the sort of liquidity that traders want.
The cryptocurrency market has grown exceedingly fast over the past few years, and one of the biggest reasons behind such hyper-growth is the existence of exchanges like BitFlyer. There was a time when even those who were interested in buying cryptocurrencies could not actually do so because of the absence of many dependable platforms.
It’s been a long time coming. Well, sort of. Back in December 2018, Germany’s second-largest stock exchange, Boerse Stuttgart, said it was going to launch a digital asset exchange in the first half of 2019. Today, that exchange has launched; trading is now live on the Boerse Stuttgart Digital Exchange, or BSDEX for short.
Binance.US, the American branch of the world’s largest crypto exchange, will officially begin trading tomorrow, September 24.

Binance.US, the American branch of leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance, has opened for account registration and deposits.
As far as the creation of a crypto platform is concerned, many of the world’s consumer-facing tech companies are looking at ways to create one. Hence, it is not a surprise that Japan’s messaging app behemoth LINE has now officially launched its own cryptocurrency exchange, Bitmax, and is all set to open up a new chapter in the country’s crypto history.
Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange, has made an undisclosed investment in Chinese crypto news outlet Mars Finance.

The crypto exchange space has evolved at a lightning speed over the past few years, and much of that is due to the fact that cryptocurrencies are now traded by a much larger pool of people. Hence, there is also a need for the creation of more crypto exchanges so that people can easily buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrencies. The rally enjoyed by Bitcoin and the wider crypto space this year has necessitated the development of many new crypto exchanges due to heightened demand.
Even a couple of years ago, the crypto derivatives market was regarded as some form of novelty by most people across the world, except those who were actually involved in it. However, things have changed dramatically since that time as Bitcoin went on its remarkable run back in 2017 and many other developments made it abundantly clear that the crypto space was here to stay.
The crypto space has evolved at a breakneck pace over the past few years, and much of it is due to the fact that cryptocurrencies became a much more popular investment as well as a trading vehicle all over the world. While trading was always a big thing, the introduction of margin trading changed the game altogether, and many exchanges all over the world started providing the service.
Bakkt, the long-awaited crypto services platform from the Intercontinental Exchange, is finally set for launch on September 23.
When it comes to trading in cryptocurrencies, it is always far more effective if one can trade on a large exchange. Large exchanges offer a lot of options with regards to the range of cryptocurrencies, liquidity, and other services. Over the course of the crypto boom that started a few years ago, some exchanges have become the leaders of the industry and Binance is certainly one of those. It went on to become one of the biggest crypto exchanges and was also the preferred choice of many traders in the United States.
