On 15 October, at 2 pm local time, the Bithumb’s decentralized exchange (DEX) started off. Earlier U.Today reported about the plans of this large crypto exchange to launch a P2P trading platform outside South Korea.
To attract customers, the exchange launched a few incentives. Among them is the absence of transaction charges until November 15, airdrops of ETH, based on trading activities, etc.
The new DEX offers trade with several coins, such as DENT, INS, ONG, etc. All the assets are traded against ETH. So far this is the only base currency on the DEX.
As a reminder, a short while ago Bithumb was sold to BK Global Consortium. It is headed by Kim Byung-gun who is also in charge of BK Medical group in Singapore. Now the Consortium is the biggest shareholder of Bithumb.
