Why eToro chose ZEC

The Managing Director of eToro’s US branch, Guy Hirsch, mentioned in an interview that the principle on which eToro adds new coins for trading, apart from the market cap value and the trading volume, includes the token’s utility cases and a strong, realistic roadmap. Hirsch said that ZCash meets all the necessary requirements here.

The company’s press release says that eToro will add ZCash to its CryptoPortfolio feature, which is a mini-asset platform for trading.

Innovative platform

In 2018, eToro was the first platform to add Binance Coin (BNB). It was coin #13 on the platform. The company also reduced fees to attract more investors and stimulate faster adoption of virtual currencies among them.

Goodbye VIX

Two days ago, eToro also announced on Twitter that it is about to delist the volatility index (VIX) short-term futures VXX ETN as of January 30 – the day when it becomes mature. The company warns that all trades must be closed by January 29.
