KuCoin users will be able to trade DFI starting today, Thursday 21 January, 2021.

  • DeFiChain, a blockchain dedicated to fast, intelligent and transparent financial services, lists its native digital currency “DFI”, on KuCoin, the leading global cryptocurrency exchange.
  • On 14 January 2021, DeFiChain announced that its DFI coin had achieved a $1billion market capitalisation, ranking in the top 10 DeFi coins by market cap.
  • To celebrate the launch of the listing, KuCoin will be running a DFI trading competition from tomorrow, Friday 22nd January until Friday 29th January, offering participants the chance to win from a prize pool of $20,000.

DeFiChain marked a momentous milestone earlier this month, with DFI achieving a $1 billion market capitalisation, making it one of the top 10 DeFi coins by market cap. The listing of its digital coin DFI on KuCoin follows a string of recent listings for DFI, including Bitrue and Bittrex. The digital asset listing on KuCoin signals DFI’s rapidly growing popularity in the market. 

Being listed on KuCoin — one of the most widely used cryptocurrency exchanges in the world — is a big breakthrough for DeFiChain. In just six months, our DFI asset has gone from $0.16 to $2.79, an increase of over 1500%! This is a clear indicator that there is real demand for DeFi amongst the masses and highlights that the path to a decentralised financial economy is just around the corner.” said Dr. Julian Hosp, Chairman of DeFiChain.

In addition, for the duration of the competition, DFI can be traded with a 50% discount on maker fees, and a 25% discount on  taker fees on KuCoin, enabling participants to maximise their returns. 

The value of Bitcoin has been recognised by a growing number of institutional investors in future global inflation. While most see Bitcoin as digital gold, its potential in building an ecosystem has long been neglected.” Said Johnny Lyu, CEO at KuCoin Global
