Coins.ph CX launches world’s first BCH-PHP trading pair $BCH

Coins is hitting many firsts in the Philippines: CX is also the first digital currency exchange in the country.

Coins.ph, which recently enabled Bitcoin Cash (BCH) access to its 5 million users in the Philippines, has launched the first BCH-PHP trading pair in the world through their newly launched Coins Exchange (CX). CX is also the first digital currency exchange in the country, launched in February this year.

“As we continue to roll-out CX to more users, we’re excited to offer our customers a broader choice in what cryptocurrencies they can trade.  With the launch of our BCH-PHP trading pair, which we believe to be the first of its kind globally, we believe that we can significantly improve BCH liquidity here in the Philippines and dramatically reduce the cost of transacting locally,” Colin Goltra, Head of the Cryptocurrency Program at Coins, told CoinGeek.

CX is still in private Beta but will be rolling out to all users soon. You can join the waitlist for the exchange here. For those who were able to get early access, here is a tutorial on how to trade over CX.
