After what most people will consider a huge success in the pre-ICO stage, one would expect trade.io to slow down. But, the trading startup isn’t doing that anytime soon. The blockchain based startup has listed its TIO tokens on the HitBTC exchange, a popular crypto-currency exchange in Europe.
Its entry to the exchange is an indicator of the emerging demand for such tools. With this new development, users will be able to convert TIO tokens against the crypto-currency pair of Bitcoin and Ethereum on the platform.
No more than 4,000 people participated in trade.io’s pre-ICO so, this move will allow others to purchase TIO tokens through the exchange. For those who did get their beaks wet on the tokens, though, will get a chance to cash in on their purchase. Of course, they can always hold onto them in expectations of an increase in demand for the tokens.
Launched in 2014, the HitBTC exchange has grown to be one of the biggest crypto-currency exchanges. It achieves the turnover of an astounding $500 million every day. HitBTC grants the ability to choose deposits from over 12 currencies. This includes fiat and digital currencies.
On its part, trade.io has become a favorite of the trading world, gaining the reputation of a disruptor in the market of crypto-investing. Its pre-ICO success has awakened many to the trading platform and the list of its adapters continues to grow. The ICO is slated to begin on December 5, 2017.
This is not all trade.io has been up to, however, as the blockchain startup has announced that it will be funding a couple of post-doctoral seats dealing with research on Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). The research will take place at the University of Nicosa.
The research will focus on two areas. First, Distributed Ledger Technology with special emphasis on cross-chain interoperability and side-chains; and Second, the best implementation and practices of corporate governance in smart tokens.
The trading startup is determined to improve the state-of-the-art architecture of the Distributed Ledger Technology. They aim to achieve this by backing highly competent and cognitive minds to follow subjects, which will bring about a drastic enhancement of the interoperability, functionality, and governance of the blockchain technologies.
The University of Nicosa has been a model unto itself, for having accepted blockchain technology back in 2013. It is the first institution to take tuition fees in the form of Bitcoin and publishing theacademic certification in theblockchain technologies. They have also made a recognized degree program and coursework available to students in the form of MSc (Digital Currency).
The institution is located in southern Europe and teaches more than 12,000 students across its campus. The call for researchers looking for a post-doctoral opportunity in thedigital currency will be open on December 4, 2017.
Trade.io is truly leaping forward at a surprisingly agile pace. For a company that has yet to start its ICO, trade.io is truly bringing a real change in the world of crypto-currency.
