The OceanEx exchange has been launched on November 30th, shortly after finishing a successful public Alpha.
Trading, as well as Withdrawals, are possible since 11:00 (UTC+8) for the following pairs:
Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to withdraw the listed coins, but this is expected to be enabled within the week.
On its first day after launch, for the VET/USDT pair, OceanEx already did 10% of the volume compared to Binance. With all upcoming features and listings, it will only be a matter of time before most of the trading for VeChain’s tokens will occur on OceanEx.
OceanEx has announced that it will support the listing of all VeChain Foundation backed tokens, and OCE, SHA and PLA will be the first coins to be listed.
Currently, it is unknown when these new listings will take place.
Oceanex is currently running multiple programs to launch and promote the exchange.
