The biggest news of the day (until now) is the fact that BTER, a very big and popular exchange, has opened several Crypto/USD markets. Even though we all knew this was coming at some point, I couldn’t be more pleased about the news.
Even though the amount of USD markets on BTER is still limited for now, they have some of the most popular Cryptos represented there. As of this writing, you can exchange USD for Bitcoin,LiteCoin, NXT, DogeCoin, DarkCoin and CounterParty (XCP).
It will be very interesting to see how the addition of these USD markets will play out for BTER, as this should, theoretically at least, bring a lot more money to the exchange. Whether or not people will take up on the offer, remains to be seen.
There is one little thing that might be worth of note to all of you who are considering depositing some USD to your BTER account : you have to use EgoPay for both deposits as well as withdrawals in USD.
We will keep an eye on the volume of USD being traded on BTER over the coming days, and whether or not more Cryptos will get a USD pairing in the near future.
