OKEx has just listed Ripple (XRP) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on its customer-to-customer platform, according to a report released this morning by Cointelegraph. The customer-to-customer platform is the cryptocurrency exchange’s newest venture. At the time of writing, OKEx is the top cryptocurrency exchange by its 24-hour trade volume.
OKEx Adds Ripple (XRP) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
OKEx users can now buy or sell XRP and BCH with five supported fiat currencies. The fiat currencies include the British Pound (GBP), Chinese Renminbi (CNY), Vietnamese Dong (VND), Russian Ruble (RUB), and the Thai Baht (THB). The Baht was added to OKEx last week.
All services on OKEx’s customer-to-customer platform will remain the same, as the company has just added the new coins. This new C2C platform allows its customers to place orders with self-selected exchange rates and various payment methods. It also has zero transaction features, which is a big highlight for the platform itself.
This platform differs from the others due to its varying fiat currencies and the option to purchase and sell crypto directly to other users on the platform. Currently, the C2C platform already has Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), and Litecoin (LTC).

The cryptocurrency exchange is making a ton of different moves to its platform, including delisting a few. On February 25th, NEO (NEO), Exchange Union (XUC), and QTUM (QTUM) will be removed from the platform.
OKEx is one of the most used cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. The addition of Ripple and Bitcoin Cash to its C2C platform will likely spark interest from investors and may bring more users onto the platform. It remains unknown at this time when more fiat currencies will be supported on the new OKEx customer-to-customer platform. The lack of fiat currencies supported is most likely due to regulation within each country.
