CEX.IO in 2015: Figures and Achievements

Being a part of this greatest industry, we’ve also made a slight overview of what we have experienced in 2015.

This year, CEX.IO mostly focused on developing as a global Bitcoin exchange. We gained a Money Services Business status within FinCEN, which lets us provide services in the USA. Another market we’ve been expanding to was CIS. In this direction, we have added BTC/RUB trading pair, as well as payment options in Russian Rubles. All in all, we are proud to tell that CEX.IO is currently covering about 95% of all countries, making it truly global. 

CEX.IO has been the first exchange to accept payment cards, and buying Bitcoins via Visa or MasterCard can be called our business card of the year. We lowered deposit fees from 4.5% to 3.5% and made payment process even easier.  Now, you can link several cards to your CEX.IO profile for quick access by next deposits. Rest assured that your card data is safe, as this is guaranteed by PCI DSS certificate obtained by CEX.IO.

Professional traders have been enjoying integration of CEX.IO with such leading charting and data platforms, as TradingView, Bitoinity and others. We have also presented WebSocket API with an outstanding pusher technology, which is the fastest way to obtain data from CEX.IO. Trading volume, in its turn, has grown 5 times since the beginning of 2015.

Recently, we have also released the long-awaited CEX.IO Mobile App that allows to manage Bitcoin trades on smartphones wherever you are. The app is available for free download on iOS and Android devices. 

Finally, we are very proud to announce that our user base has exceeded 500,000 users.

We wish you good luck and happiness in the next year. Let us make 2016 even brighter together!

Have a nice trading and happy holidays!
