One of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges around the globe and the second largest exchange in South Korea, Bithumb will be issuing their own token named BITHUMB Coin in Singapore according to a local news portal.

Based on the reports, the exchange platform will be conducting and releasing the ICO in Singapore and abroad. The token will be issued to top institutions and investors and not to individuals. Many industry experts even speculate that there will be two types of Bithumb coin. The platform will refrain from releasing the coin in South Korea where the company’s headquarters is located at as ICO’s are banned in the country.

{Translated from Korean} One of the spokespeople of Bithumb, Oh Young-Jun says:

“We know that the Bithumb coin is underway at a local subsidiary acquired by Bithumb’s subsidiary. Details regarding the specific schedule and issue size have not been confirmed.”

Charles Ray, a day trader says:

“I honestly think Bithumb is one of the best exchanges. They respond to all the queries and problems immediately and have all the important coins listed on their platform. Moreover, they have started expanding their operations in all the important locations. Releasing their own coin is one big step and I know for sure that the coin will receive a positive response.”

Brain Kelly, a cryptocurrency investor and trader says:

“I knew it! All the exchange platforms will eventually start their own ICO.”

Katherine Dsouza, a crypto-enthusiast says:

“Wow! I wonder how many more are there to come. All the exchanges these days are upto releasing their own tokens instead of listing the coins their customers want.”

Justin Jefferson, a BTC trader says:

“Very soon we’ll be seeing all the coins with their own exchange platforms.”

Jason Herly, a Bithumb user says:

“Does this mean that the charges will reduce?”

Huobi, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges of South Korea has recently announced the release of their own token Huobi Token [HT]. These aren’t the only cryptocurrency exchange platforms with their own token. Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange platform around the globe also released their own coin, Binance Coin [BNB] last year.

Bitcoin [BTC] had become the center of discussion in the crypto-verse after its meteoric rise recently. BTC is considered to be the digital gold with huge growth potential. As the interminable discussions continued for a long time, individuals associated with this discourse exhibited legitimate reasons both ‘for’ and ‘against’ the validity and acknowledgment of digital forms of money.

Enthusiasts around the globe believed that the big names of the market and hotshots in the corporate space were complacent about BTC. As Bitcoin is increasingly gaining recognition on a daily basis, Fidelity has emerged as the newest member to validate and diffuse BTC in its business operations.

Fidelity Investments, the multinational financial services corporation based in Boston, USA, offered services encircling investing, brokerage and retirement plans.

According to Bitcoin developer Justin Moon, Fidelity Investments has been interested in Bitcoin for a long time. He tweeted,

“Fidelity has a room full of Bitcoin Miners [ASICs] at their Texas office.”

This tweet, from a broader perspective, pointed at the interest of big wagons in the market in BTC mining. Apart from this, it also showed that they were actively participating in public blockchains.

This is not the first instance where Fidelity has openly accepted its interest in cryptocurrencies. Ari Paul, founder and chief investment officer of BlockTower Capital, had tweeted earlier this year,

A majority of Fidelity’s clients seems to believe that digital assets are the next big thing in the economy and the debate has been going on for a while. However, Fidelity’s statement rested the speculations of BTC being adopted by big league members. In other adoption news, three days ago, AT&T announced that it would start accepting payments in Bitcoin for its services.
