Coindirect launches an integrated trading exchange

After entering the market as a peer-to-peer marketplace with wallet support for over 40 altcoins, South-African-based Coindirect announced that it has now released an integrated trading exchange. This new tool will give advanced traders everything they need and more to make Coindirect their preferred cryptocurrency trading platform.

Coindirect is aiming to disrupt the financial sector in the Africa region; believing there is an apparent growing demand for cryptocurrency in this market. However, this demand is largely being ignored by most within the industry despite being the second fastest growing economy in the world.

The newly launched exchange will feature a real-time order book, trade history and advanced charting functionality. It has the ability to aggregate the best price for the same coin off multiple exchanges, giving users the best price available. The exchange also comes with a complete API and the team is looking to release even more features in the near future.

Coindirect have also created additional wallet support for Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Omni, US Tether (USDT) and ERC20 altcoins. The exchange will feature a series of South African Rand pairs, USD Tether pairs and Crypto pairs for traders to work with.

This advanced exchange has now completed Coindirect’s 3-prong offering, along with their wallet and local peer-to-peer marketplaces. The free wallet feature is a quick and convenient coin convert option, while the marketplace boasts a 0% fee on buying or selling bitcoin.

Jesse Hemson-Struthers, CEO of Coindirect commented:

We’ve always aimed at simplifying user journeys within the cryptocurrency space, and this newly launched exchange means our customers are able to go to Coindirect for whatever their cryptocurrency needs may be. The full-service platform now offers everything from converting fiat currency to bitcoin, to doing daily altcoin trading.

Stephen Young, CPO of Coindirect added:

We’ve seen the continent essentially leapfrog traditional banking through newer mobile technologies, making it well placed for widespread adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrency technology. There’s an exciting opportunity to put an open access, secure and private decentralised financial system in the hands of emerging African economies.

The platform has made it simple with a single destination for buying, selling, sending, receiving, converting and now trading over 40 altcoins.
