Yesterday, cryptocurrency exchange OKEx announced the Dogecoin (DOGE) listing on their blog.
We are pleased to announce that DOGEcoin (DOGE) is now listed on OKEx. Please take note of the following go-live schedule:
1.DOGE Deposit -11:00 July 17 (CEST, UTC+2),
2.DOGE Spot Trading – (USDT/USDK markets) – 11:00 July 18 (CEST, UTC+2)
3.DOGE Withdrawal – 11:00 July 19 (CEST, UTC+2)
DOGE spot trading is scheduled to begin on the 18th, and there are two trading pairs, Tether (USDT) and USD-linked stable coin “USDK” which was launched by OKEx last month.
DOGE is a joke-based cryptocurrency on the Internet, with a market value of $ 350 million, but it was not listed on major exchanges until recently.
On the 5th of this month, the major crypto exchange Binance started listing DOGE on their platform.
In addition to USDT and own currency (BNB), Binance offers Bitcoin (BTC), Paxos Standard (PAX), and USD Coin (USDC) as trading pairs.
Although OKEx has not yet made clear why it decided to list DOGE at this time, it is highly likely that it has responded to the demand of the market and the competition with other exchanges such as Binance.
