TrueChain and Arcblock on Bithumb
The exchange will offer one trading pair for both TRUE and ABT, the other half being Korea’s national fiat currency, the won. Bithumb will open buying and selling services on September 12 at 15:00 UTC, with deposits to be available at the same time on September 8.
Bithumb is one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges, its volume in the last 24 hours reaching $464 million. After the hack attack it experienced in June, the platform has partially resumed deposit and withdrawal services for the coins listed during the security breach.
