Even though we usually don’t do these kind of articles, I think it would be refreshing to take a look at the Cryptsy exchange and the markets they have added over the past few days. Seven new trading pairs have been added, including two USD pairs!
Two of the coins added to Cryptsy two days are altcoins I haven’t even heard of yet. Then again, as Cryptsy has a habit of adding coins regardless of their maturity, that doesn’t exactly come as a surprise to me either.
The first of these coins is Bitmark, an altcoin I’ve seen mentioned twice so far over the past few week. Bit of an odd choice perhaps, but it’s on there now. The other coin is CoinWorksCoin, which might just win the prize for weirdest name of September 2014. Once again, never heard of it, never seen anything about yet, but lo and behold, it’s on Cryptsy! Get my point?
The other addition to the Bitcoin trading market is Sterlingcoin, a new altcoin we have covered extensively on this website. It might be a bit soon for SLG to be on such a “big” exchange, but at least that choice can be somewhat justified because they have merchants and services ready before they even launched.
A new addition to the recently opened USD trading market comes in the form of NXT. This Crypto 2.0 is being traded against fiat currency on a lot of different exchanges, and I guess Cryptsy just wants a piece of the profit. Nothing wrong with that of course!
NXT is not alone however, as Peercoin got added to the USD trading market the same day. Peercoin is a cryptocurrency which has been around for a long time, but I’m not sure if people are actively looking to trade it against USD. Time will tell I guess!
Another addition to the Bitcoin trading market, which has been coming for a while now, is ShadowCash. It looks like all the major exchanges have adding SDC to their platform, and Cryptsy couldn’t stay behind on that front.
The last addition is … DarkToken? Who or what on God’s green earth is DarkToken and why are they on Cryptsy? Guess I’ll have to look into this altcoin, as well as the other two coins we haven’t covered on this site yet.
Funny how you can turn three lines of trading pairs in a lengthy article, isn’t it? Well, that’s what we do here at CryptoArticles!
