The move pursues the dispatch of its local trade token, FLEX Coin, which prizes clients for exchanging the crypto. It has a market top of $26 million.
CoinFlex, which has 23 workers, launched its exchanging stage in February. Furthermore, Lamb was not candid about its objective to surpass Hong Kong-based BitMEX, the world’s second-biggest digital money fates trade with an every day exchanging volume of US$2.86 billion, as per cryptographic money positioning and assessment site Coingecko.
