At Bittrex International, there will be improved listing procedures for tokens and advanced options for qualified users from different countries.

The international platform will be available to existing Bittrex users, with the exception of US exchange customers.

Testing of Bittrex International will last over the next few weeks. Earlier the management of the American Stock Exchange planned to name its division Bittrex Malta.

According to Bittrex, the earlier process of including tokens in the listing took months. At Bittrex International, this process has been greatly improved and will be much faster. At the same time, token developers will get access to the company's partner network.

The platform will carry out its activities within the regulatory framework of the European Union and the Government of Malta.

We are committed to being a driving force in the blockchain revolution by increasing adoption of this innovative technology around the world. Bittrex International's more efficient token listing process, combined with our reliable, secure and advanced trading platform technology, will make it easy to quickly feature the newest, most innovative blockchain projects for our international partners and customers.
