Bitcoin Press Release:  Leading South Korean digital asset exchange Bithumb announces the ‘Bithumb Global’ 1.0 exchange version update.

2nd Oct 2019, HONG KONGBithumb Global, South Korea’s top digital asset exchange, has announced new upcoming features and initiatives on their recently launched “Bithumb Global” 1.0 version. To develop a better designed and user-friendlier digital assets ecosystem, Bithumb Global is launching new tools to help create inclusive community resources and a new “Unleash” program which strives to bring awareness to their vision.

Founded in 2014, Bithumb Korea is the earliest and most influential digital currency exchange in South Korea. With 8 million registered users, 1 million mobile app users and a current cumulative transaction volume of 1 trillion US dollars, Bithumb is one of the market leaders in digital asset trading. Bithumb also facilitates 59.19% of the entire Korean Bitcoin transaction volume and accounts for approximately 15% of the global market. The highest daily transaction volume for the Korean exchange has reached over 7 billion USD.

irrespective of these numbers, Bithumb has mainly been focused on the South Korea region with over 80% of its platform users originating from there. As a result, Bithumb launched its spinout, Bithumb Global, earlier this year to connect liquidity and market potential to the rest of the world.

With Bithumb Global operating as an independent entity equipped with internal resources, the spinout can provide a better crypto trading experience and create the new standard which the community will come to expect. With improved technology such as advanced order matching engines, coin staking features, and many unrevealed product offerings, Bithumb Global is the next-generation digital asset exchange that serves the global audience.

Javier Sim, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Bithumb Global had these words to say about the progress and growth of Bithumb:

“Since Bithumb Global’s beta launch in May of 2019, it has on-boarded more than one million users worldwide, and have had their daily trading volume exceeded over $381 million. It has become the only exchange established in 2019 that was ranked among the top trading platforms in the world.”

One of the most unique features of Bithumb Global is its “BG Staging” initiative. With BG Staging, pre-selected projects can reach Bithumb Global’s community and drive attention. Unlike IEOs (Initial Exchange Offering) and other exchange fundraising activities, BG Staging does not require users to invest fiat or currency in a fundraising round, rather they stake their digital assets to show their interest and receive back their stake plus potentially a voucher for the featured project’s tokens after a lock-up period.

Bithumb Global has also implemented tighter security measures, a low latency order matching engine with proprietary technology and advanced algorithms, and a friendlier user interface.
