How To Get A Cryptocurrency Listed On Exchanges

The Crypto Industry Journal @KatarinaCrypto

 

Getting your cryptocurrency listed on exchanges is not quite as simple. The crypto market is swamped with cryptos and exchanges need to spend time and resources to make your cryptocurrency available for trading.

While investors, and more specifically traders, seek quick, profitable trades, exchanges nowadays are more interested in the quality and popularity of a given cryptocurrency.

Supply must be met by demand and demand in FinTech is created by combining innovation with usefulness. It’s good to have something unique, new and interesting to offer, accompanied by a community of supportive followers.

The community must believe that a given cryptocurrency is worth their time and money. A strong community is one in which members actively promote the benefits of their favorite cryptocurrency and choose to buy and hold it long term.

The dev team’s technological background, experience and reputation are of essence as well.

Before submitting a listing request with exchanges, however, prepare your own list of specs and notes as follows:

– have a verified trading account at the exchange

– Howey Test (cannot be/resemble a security; cannot mention profit as a feature)

– cryptocurrency name and ticker symbol

– cryptocurrency description and utility

– cryptocurrency website, whitepaper, email, and logo URL

– the date was the project launched

– community (size, level of activity, social media accounts, Reddit, BitcoinTalk)

– where else it’s available for trading/being traded/other exchanges

– transaction fee

– initial price

– market capitalization

– total supply

– circulating supply

– token distribution

– project funding sources (ICO, community/crowdfund, VC, private investors)

– premine

– protocol (POW, POS)

– wallet

– testnet/mainet

– Github source code, audit

– blockchain explorer/API

– algorithm

– block time

– number of blocks

– programming language

– smart contract address

– decimals

Depending on the exchange, lead devs and/or community members can apply for a listing, request a listing, suggest a listing or vote for a cryptocurrency to be listed. In many cases either option requires a certain amount of capital. And while there are rumors of exchanges demanding $1 million per listing many exchanges don’t seem to charge anything at all.

Last but not least

Before applying for a listing on exchanges, try getting your cryptocurrency listed on Coin Market Cap (or an alternative). It it doesn’t work, have it listed on there as soon as you get your first exchange listing. It is essential for traders and investors to be able to see your cryptocurrency stats and charts on a third party charting website so that’s a major priority!
