As most crypto traders are aware, 2018 has been a bloodbath beyond anyone’s wildest imagination. Most, if not all, gains from 2017 have been wiped out. And while the pain will certainly end at some point, it’s unclear when that will be. But as Harvey Dent famously said in The Dark Knight, “the night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.” When brighter times do finally come, trading volume will certainly explode again as old investors return and new investors discover cryptocurrencies for the first time. A platform that is poised to benefit from that growth is ABCC Exchange.
ABCC Exchange is a world-class digital assets exchange that aims to provide a frictionless, user-centric trading experience. The company is focused on embracing the philosophy of decentralized technology which essentially means open, frictionless and participatory.
The company’s main goal is assisting investors with identifying valuable decentralized technology assets, offering a secure online trading platform and providing professional trading services. Below are four reasons why ABCC may be on the verge of revolutionizing crypto trading.
Reason #1 – State of the Art Trading Features
While many other trading exchanges have only basic functionality and very limited order types, ABCC is just the opposite. It’s a state of the art platform that caters to both beginner and experienced crypto traders. For a while, ABCC offered just its base trading platform. But on November 2nd, the company launched its beta version of the ABCC Pro. The Pro version benchmarks with the user experience on top exchanges such as BitMEX. It also includes the following enhancements:
- A chart section that includes both candlestick chart and line graph
- Night mode
- Enhanced security
- A “My Assets” section where traders can now view real-time updates in their total assets
- Full-screen mode
- Ability to see customer orders directly within the depth
- 160+ trading indicators
- Stop loss and stop limit
- Easy-to-use mobile APP
Crypto volatility has been astronomical during the past few weeks causing traders to spend a lot of time managing their portfolios. Because of that volatility, traders are always trying to find new ways to risk manage and limit potential losses. One of the best ways to limit losses is with stop loss orders. And with seemingly perfect timing, ABCC released the addition of stop loss functionality.
Most crypto traders probably already know what a stop loss is but for those who don’t, here is a quick overview. A stop loss order is designed to limit an investor’s loss on a position. For example, setting a stop loss order for 10% below the price at which one bought the crypto asset will limit the loss to approximately 10% should the asset fall to that price level.
As someone who has generally used only the most basic of crypto exchanges, these features are extremely welcome and useful.
Reason #2 – Trading Strategy Competition
Accompanying the release of stop loss functions, ABCC has announced a trading competition in which first place will receive a prize of 2,000 USDT. The competition is scheduled to begin on December 5 and last for one week. During the competition, each user will be ranked based upon their rate of return from all trading pairs. The total prize pool for all competitors is 4,500 USDT.
These competitions are beneficial on several different levels. It’s obviously beneficial for traders as they get to practice and hone their trading skills on ABCC’s state of the art platform while hopefully doing well enough to earn prizes. And it’s beneficial for ABCC as it should serve as an opportunity to generate additional revenue through increased trading volume from both existing and new customers.
In August, the company held another trading competition with prizes that included a Tesla, 40,000 USDT, and smaller daily rewards. So new traders and competitors should expect that the December competition won’t be the last one that ABCC holds. So if a trader doesn’t do well this time around, keep practicing and perhaps their fortune will change the next time around.
In addition to increased revenue, trading competitions always bring a lot of hype and publicity which should do well toward enhancing ABCC’s brand recognition and ability to serve more customers in the future.
Reason #3 – ABCC Token (AT)
AT, an original token of ABCC Exchange, is mined automatically when ABCC users conduct trading activities via the Trade-to-Mine mechanism. 80% of trading fees from crypto trading and 80% of net profits from options trading are rewarded back to AT Holders in the form of BTC, ETH and USDT.
A new product, Daily Options, was recently launched by ABCC. This new product also introduces a new use case for AT as traders will be able to make predictions regarding the future price changes of BTC. ABCC users can expect additional product offerings, such as Daily Options, in the future.
Reason #4 – Vitalik Buterin Endorsement
As blockchain startups look to disrupt industries, it never hurts to have a major endorsement from one of the most prominent figures in the blockchain movement. Earlier this year, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin participated in an interview with Jon Evans at TechCrunch Sessions: Blockchain. During that interview, Buterin stressed his desire for everything to be decentralized. Additionally, when the conversation turned toward exchanges, Buterin had this to say: “I definitely hope centralized exchanges go burn in hell as much as possible.” He said there is no reason whatsoever why some projects need to pay up to $15 million in listing fees just so that people can trade their tokens on centralized exchanges. While it’s still in the early phase for decentralized exchanges, it never hurts to have someone like Buterin on your side.
While the crypto trading environment isn’t what it was in late 2017, the recent volatility has certainly created an opportunity for new exciting platforms like ABCC to fill a void for traders. One thing not previously mentioned is that ABCC Exchange aspires to list as many good projects as possible. Unlike other exchanges that attempt to bleed companies dry, ABCC hopes to build strong partnerships and relationships with their listed clients. Conducting business in this fashion allows both ABCC and the listed projects to grow and prosper together.
The existing platform and the coming enhancements should certainly go a long way to helping traders manage their existing portfolios while simultaneously exploring the market for those undervalued projects that are working on breakthrough technology.
