Geneva, 11th July 2019 - Dukascopy Bank is pleased to announce the first listing of its own cryptocurrency Dukascoin on the first external trading venue - Swiss Crypto Exchange (SCX)
On February, 28 Dukascopy Bank has launched Dukascoin - the first public blockchain-based crypto token issued by a bank. This event has marked an important milestone in the crypto-friendly long-term strategy of the bank. Since then, Dukascoin has been actively traded inside the internal ecosystem of the bank, attracting significant interest from investors. During the last several months Dukascopy has been actively preparing the next great landmark for its cryptocurrency - external admission to trading.
After careful research and diligent selection process, the bank is now glad to announce the first partnership with one of the most recognized and well-established Swiss crypto companies - Swiss Crypto Exchange (SCX). The bank has highly appreciated the professional team standing behind SCX managed by its CEO Dr. Francesco Adiliberti and its Executive Chairman Dr. Christian Katz and - two well-known and respected members of the Swiss financial industry. Dukascopy Bank is looking forward to fruitful and long-lasting cooperation with SCX in the crypto domain.
Starting from this week, global institutional and private investors will have the opportunity to transact in Dukascoins outside of Dukascopy Bank's environment, freely sending and receiving the bank's cryptocurrency in the blockchain. The bank would like to remind that anyone interested can follow all the latest updates related to Dukascoin on the dedicated web site www.dukascoin.com. This resource publishes all relevant information about the prospective business uses of the token inside or outside the bank.
The bank is equally happy to present an essential additional benefit that clients of Dukascopy will obtain from the partnership with Swiss Crypto Exchange. All clients will get access to trading in popular cryptocurrencies, for example, Bitcoin (BTC) or Etherium (ETH) against Dukascoin or fiat currencies. In this convenient arrangement, clients will be able to keep their money in the safe custody of their Dukascopy bank accounts while buying or selling crypto via SCX (you can read SCX's press release here).
"Switzerland is our home market and is of strategical importance for us. Therefore, we have been particularly careful when selecting a partner exchange. I am certain that we have entrusted our first integration of Dukascoin to the partners who understand the financial and crypto markets very well. They are true professionals. Moreover, I am personally delighted to work closely to Dr. Christian Katz, who has been managing SIX exchange for years and who knows very well how a proper Swiss exchange should be organised." said Dr. Andre Duka, co-CEO of Dukascopy Bank.
