Bitstamp exploring support for additional digital assets

13

Bitstamp is reviewing a number of digital assets to provide our customers with a broader range of trading options. We have been closely monitoring the market and performing due diligence to determine which projects fit within our internal digital asset framework.

Today, we are announcing that we are actively exploring support for the following cryptocurrencies and stablecoins:

• Basic Attention Token (BAT)
• Ethereum Classic (ETC)
• Paxos Standard (PAX)
• USD Coin (USDC)
• Stellar Lumens (XLM)
• Zcash (ZEC)
• 0x (ZRX)

The decision to support any additional assets requires strict technical, safety and compliance reviews, as well as regulatory approval in certain jurisdictions. As part of this exploration process, you may see signs of engineering work on our platform related to the assets listed above. We cannot guarantee that this will result in any new listings and it does not disqualify any other assets from being monitored for possible support at Bitstamp.

While we will continue to take a thoughtful approach to any new listings, our customers have asked for more assets and we believe providing them with a broader offering is the next step of our mission to enable freedom of exchange.
