If you have been paying close attention to this website, you will recall the article about Danish-based exchange CCEDK adding BlackCoin to their trading markets. While we took a look from CCEDK’s perspective, we should also take a closer look at what this means for BlackCoin and their community.
One of the things about BlackCoin which has always impressed me, is how they keep pushing forward on a daily basis. Not just by making the coin technologically superior to other altcoins, and even lifting themselves to the “Cryptocurrency 2.0” status, but also in regards to attracting new members and investors.
Most of you will recall the deal they made with the Max Borges Agency, the US-based Public Relations firm with a specialty in technology. A deal was signed for 90 days of relentless promotion, and MBA delivered on their promise. To make it even better, they accepted part of the payment in BC. How awesome is that?
A lot of BlackCoin members were also present at the Bitcoin 2014 conference in Amsterdam earlier this year, and I had a chance to meet all of them. A truly inspiring group with amazing ideas, valuable insights and a great sense of humour. More importantly . they were representing BlackCoin, and talking to people about their coin.
These are just two of the important things BlackCoin has done so far in order to gain more awareness. Fast forward to just over a week ago, when Gritt, whose real name is Joshua Bouw, attended Huobicom’s and OKCoin’s events in China. He was also on one of the panels discussing altcoins, and there was a BlackCoin booth at the event.
Why is all of that important? Oh, I don’t know, maybe because it lit a fire under the BlackCoin trading volume on the Chinese exchanges? Over 6 million BC, which is close to 10% of the total coin supply, was traded in 24 hours. You have to admit, that is quite impressive!
All of that positive attention also lead to talks with Ronny Boesing, CEO of the Danish-based CCEDK exchange. And things got even better, when Mr. Boesing announced BlackCoin will be added to CCEDK on September 22nd.
Not only does this add another exchange to the already impressive list of places where you can trade BlackCoin, but it opens up a worldwide market of people waiting to purchase BC with fiat currency. That’s right, CCEDK supports nine different fiat currencies on their platform, as well as Bitcoin. So a total of 10 new trading pairs could be opened up over time.
In order to get your fiat currency in your CCEDK balance, users can use several deposit methods : SEPA or SWIFT bank transfers and Payeer are supported.
On September 22nd, when BlackCoin trading pairs go live on CCEDK, there will be four different markets opening up. Bitcoin, EUR, USD and DKK trading markets will be supported on launch. Other markets, for different fiat currencies, will be added upon request by the CCEDK users.
The key element in the available fiat trading pairs is the BC/EUR trading option. The only way to purchase BlackCoin with EUR at this point in time is through brokers or middlemen. CCEDK cutso ut the need for a middleman, and offers their users to buy and sell BC in exchange for EUR directly.
Keeping in mind EUR transactions can be handled through SEPA transfers within 12 to 72 hours, and the low costs for using EUR on CCEDK, this could become a major trading market for both CCEDK and BlackCoin. History in the making and we are here to witness it, things don’t get much better than that!
Once again, September 22nd is the date when BlackCoin goes live on CCEDK!
