When CEX.IO opened its doors to the U.S. market in 2019, we were licensed in nine states and listed a handful of cryptocurrencies. What a difference just three years makes! Since that time, CEX.IO has been approved, licensed, bonded, regulated, and audited by 48 out of 50 U.S. states. And today, we’re proud to announce the availability of 30 new altcoins for our U.S. customers. 

With this addition of new altcoins to the CEX.IO platform, we have doubled the number of cryptos available to U.S. customers since last year. To further enhance the user experience in the U.S. and abroad, we have also lowered trading fees and changed the CEX.IO base currency from bitcoin to the U.S. Dollar.

Users from the U.S. can now deposit, withdraw, and trade the following cryptocurrencies:


  • 1Inch (1Inch)
  • Aave (AAVE)
  • Cosmos (ATOM)
  • Compound (COMP)
  • Dai (DAI)
  • Polkadot (DOT)
  • Internet Computer (ICP) 
  • Decentraland (MANA)
  • Loopring (LRC)
  • Maker (MKR)
  • OMG Network (OMG)
  • Shiba Inu (SHIB)
  • Synthetix (SNX)
  • Solana (SOL)
  • SushiSwap (SUSHI)
  • Tron (TRX)
  • Tether (USDT)
  • Zilliqa (ZIL)
  • Dash (DASH)

    CEX.IO has also added staking for new and existing proof of stake tokens available to U.S. users. Including the newly listed tokens, U.S. users can stake the following:

    • Cardano (ADA)
    • Solana (SOL)
    • Zilliqa (ZIL)
    • Tezos (XTZ)
    • Polkadot (DOT)
    • Tron (TRX)
    • Polygon (MATIC)


    Will Evans, CEX.IO Managing Director of the Americas, said of the new token listings: “Offering the most widely traded cryptocurrencies – now more than nearly all of the leading crypto platforms – brings CEX.IO closer to our mission of becoming a global one-stop-shop for crypto trading and investment services.”

    Trusted by over four and a half million global customers, CEX.IO is one of the first and longest-tenured crypto platforms that consistently ranks among CryptoCompare’s Top 15 best exchanges. With licenses to operate in 48 U.S. states, CEX.IO can service customers nearly nationwide. CEX.IO has also successfully passed multiple independent audits that gauge Money Services Business compliance. 

    The latest update is a milestone for CEX.IO, and reaffirms our commitment to U.S. market expansion under a transparent, regulated umbrella. We look forward to continuing our work to bring the best crypto and DeFi goods and services to our U.S. and global customers.
