Bithumb is one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges. In the latest initiative which is viral in the cryptocurrency news, we can see that the organization named Bithumb Global launched a native coin for its Bithumb Chain, which is the custom blockchain of the exchange.
The token was launched under the “BT” ticker and is named Bithumb Coin. The main idea behind it is to see it work as a medium of exchange for the ecosystem. As the company revealed in an official statement this Tuesday, the Bithumb Chain is expected to launch at some point in the first quarter of 2020.
When talking about mechanics and features, we can see that Bithumb Global is planning to mint a hard cap of 300 million Bithumb tokens (BT). Half of the revenue that the exchange has will be used to burn 50% of BT and its token supply over time. This is very similar to the case of Binance Chain and its Binance Coin (BNB). The BNB coin news showed a supply of 150 million tokens.
The initial distribution will be split between the on-exchange incentives and the chain development, accordingly. According to Bithumb Global, the exchange will also use the coin for fees related to handling, rights to use Bithumb Chain and future payment mechanisms. Earlier this month, the exchange also announced its “Exchange-as-a-Service” feature which will develop decentralized finance applications or DEX protocols using Bithumb Chain as its main part.
Bithumb Global noted that the Bithumb Coin (BT) tokens can be also used to vote in chain governance such as investment decisions when it comes to Bithumb Chain. A part of the exchange’s Korea branch operates out of Singapore with an average daily trading volume of around $700 million, as data from CoinMarketCap shows.
The global digital asset exchange Bithumb is known for the trust, brand reputation and fund custody which are all factors that secure the users’ assets, their website shows. With financial derivatives and preferred projects, the exchange is committed to showing users a lot of possibilities for wealth discovery. The Bithumb exchange is operated by Bithumb global with an app that can be downloaded via the Google Play Android store or iOS App Store.
