Bittrex has been teasing its newlook platform for a couple of weeks, and yesterday it came out of beta to officially launch its sleeker, shinier interface. Visually, it’s a whole lot better. The only downside is that beneath the patina of user-friendliness, it’s still the same old exchange offering the same tired tokens. While Coinbase prevaricates over which ERC20s to add and Poloniex regroups under Circle, this is Bittrex’ chance to shine. To make Bittrex great again, Richie and his team are gonna need to start listing some assets that matter.
In other exchange news, Binance has emulated Kucoin in implementing an anti-phishing code to beef up user security. “Once you have successfully set your Anti-Phishing Code, all legitimate Binance emails that you receive will contain this exact code.” In other words, you can now have the world’s largest crypto exchange email you an obscenity of your choice on a daily basis. What a time to be alive.
