in cryptocurrency •  10 months ago 

Blockchain.io Is a new exchange aiming to be the leading exchange in Europe. It will be integrating the Paymium service to enable smooth fiat to crypto transfers. The exchange itself aims to meet all compliance and regulatory requirements for the European market. This includes detailed vetting of ICO's, so potential investors know that no scams, or non-compliant offers are on their site.

With so many Exchanges available to Crypto investors, what is unique about Blockchain.io?

  • It will host the order book centrally, on its servers for a smooth experience.
  • Settlement of trades will be done on the blockchain, through smart contracts.
  • Easy trading between different coins.
  • Fully compliant and rigorously audited.
  • 98% of crypto reserves will be kept in Multi-signature Cold Storage. Source
  • Being Launched by Paymium. 170,000 customers of Paymium will have immediate access to the exchange.
  • Liquidity services available, and peer-to peer lending and proprietary lending for advanced users.

This video from the companies website excellently explains some of the best features of this ambitious exchange.

My thought's

This looks to me like an excellent project and addition to the crypto space. A European based exchange, focused on full and stringent compliance to all relevant regulation will bolster trust and further crypto adoption. It appear's to have many features that will appeal to both small retail clients, as well as large institutional investors.

It is an ambitious launch, but backed by one of the most experienced companies in the European crypto space, I would expect success is likely. I am particularly impressed with the security measures put in place to ensure the safety and security of coin storage.

My other thought is that if many STEEM investors participate in this token sale, we will have significant influence on the exchange encouraging STEEM to be a core offering. I have no way of knowing if this is possible, but it makes sense to me that if STEEMians hold many of the exchanges BCIO tokens, there is a certain amount of influence that we could exert.


If I had the funds available, based on the research I have done for this post, I would definitely be participating in this token sale. This is not however financial advice, I am not qualified at all to give any advice. Please conduct your own research. For further information, please refer to the following links.

I think you are right, we more Steemit users on Blockchain.io exchange to encourage them to list Steem! Look forward to having more market places to trade Steem and Steem Dollar. Will consider reaching out to admins, for now we need to encourage more onboarding as to give the clear reason to support Steem, as there is a real community backing it :)

Would love to be able to buy into the offer. I definitely think this will be a top notch exchange. The tokens should do well. Thanks heaps for your comment and support @steemitguide.
