Via press release, BTC China announced the launch of USD and HKD deposits and withdrawals, which makes them the first Chinese exchange to support three fiat currencies. Founded in 2011 and being the world’s oldest Bitcoin exchange, BTC China has expanded the service to all of its International Account Holders, already collecting several million USD worth of deposits during the trial stage.
“Upon registration, users have the option to select Domestic or International Account. International Account holders will be automatically eligible for this new service”, says the press release. “Existing Domestic Account holders who wish to deposit and withdraw using USD or HKD are encouraged to open an International Account”, it continues, adding that users will have access to the full range of BTC China’s products and services. All trades will be conducted in BTC/CNY and LTC/CNY.
“As a global company, BTC China is pleased to accommodate the demands of our users, both domestic and international,” said BTC China CEO, Bobby Lee. Previously, users could only make deposits and withdrawals in CNY.
Already catering to a number of mobile and desktop products including Picasso Mobile Wallet, Mobile Exchange and the BTC China Trader, the launch of USD, HKD deposits and withdrawals may put the exchange in a leading position.
