Cryptocurrency trading platform Quoine has released applications for mobile devices with iOS or Android operating systems, the platform said over the weekend. The new apps feature all functions available at the upgraded web-based dashboard and have the same design cues as it.
Quoine also announced it has revamped its dashboard to offer a new look and feel. The platform is now much easier to navigate, while it still has the same advanced features, charting tools and trade options.
The news comes just a few months after in June Quoine raised $20 million in a Series A funding round, which was led by JAFCO, one of the largest venture capital firms in Japan. The company said at the time it would use the proceeds to ensure that it is among the first regulated exchanges in Japan when new rules come into effect in 2017. In late 2014, the exchange raised another $2 million from Asian angel investors to finance its global expansion.
“Our team has been working tirelessly to bring these exciting updates to our continually growing customer base, and it shows in these new releases. I can’t wait for our users to experience them first hand, and I’m sure our users will use our platform more as a direct result,” saud Quoine CEO Mike Kayamori. “Releasing our app allows a whole new audience to enjoy our zero trading fees since smartphones are becoming the primary device for so many people nowadays,” he noted.
Quoine, launched in 2014, is an exchange and platform for trading in cryptocurrency spot, margin and, since recently, futures. The platform provides access to Bitcoin and, since March this year, to Ethereum digital currencies.
The platform is used by professional and less experience digital currency traders. Its matching engine is capable of processing a million transactions per second. It is also among the very few exchanges on the internet that support up to 25X leverage and asset lending. In addition to the recently introduced futures trading, the platform’s offering includes market, limit, stop, trailing stop and TWAP (Time-Weighted Average Price) orders.
Quoine is incorporated in Singapore with partners in Japan and other key markets across Asia.
