Cardano Available on a New Exchange: OKEx Announces ADA
What might be the main reason for the latest increased interest in Cardano, when observing the trading volumes of ADA in the last 48 hours, is the most recent announcement that Cardano has become available on one of the biggest exchange platforms for crypto in the market of digital assets.
It is commonly a case that any newly added assets will result in increased trading volumes with the newly added listing, as a result of the increased exposure and gaining momentum within the community.
This is especially the case if the listing is announced on a massive-scaled exchange platform like it is the case that ADA has been added to OKEx less than two days ago.
OKEx makes up for one of the biggest exchange platforms in the market, being ranked as the second largest exchange in the terms of daily trading volumes. The exchange is based in Hong Kong, promoting blockchain and crypto assets across one of the largest centers for blockchain investors – Hong Kong, Asia.
Asia is known to be one of the leading areas in the terms of accepting, utilizing and investing in blockchain technology, so having Cardano listed on OKEx means more potential investors, consequently leading to increased trading volumes, price boosts, and similar benevolent outcomes.
With the latest addition to OKEx, as announced by the official announcement from the representatives of the exchange, Cardano can now be traded on more than 10 exchange platforms, like UpBit, Bittrex, and HitBTC.
