Bitstamp, an extensive cryptocurrency exchange platform, released its planned schedule for its addition, and provision of support for cryptocurrency Shiba Inu and three others, in a post on it’s webpage on Wednesday, December 8.
Bitstamp is one of the oldest cryptocurrency exchange platforms , it is amongst the first batch of firms to open its doors and accommodate crypto related exchange activities. Established in early 2011, when the cryptocurrency industry was in its infant stage and was still obscure , it has brought quality service to its customer base over the years.
As a registered firm in the U.K and Luxembourg, it has a very comprehensive customer base that span over a hundred different countries in the world, as of now. The exchange has a physical presence in up to five different countries and an online presence ‘virtually’ worldwide. According to its database , the exchange is home to more than four million users worldwide.
In the early hours of Wednesday, Dec. 8, Bitstamp published on its online blog page, the schedule it plans to follow, in activating support for three cryptocurrency tokens. Though already listed on the exchange, tokens Shina Inu, dYdX, Gala and Perpetual Protocol could not be used for buying and selling.
Owners of the three tokens can now trade them, without experiencing any difficulties. While users will be able to trade these tokens, they might not experience seamless trading sessions, as the exchange is yet to add the stop loss- take profit functions for the tokens. Apparently, the platform is aware of these inadequacies, and have released a schedule which shows a complete upgrade plan, for each token’s trading protocols and the timeline it will effect this change.
