Now its users can begin trading ETH/JPY, BCH/JPY, LTC/JPY, and XRP/JPY. This adds to the already existing BTC/JPY on the exchange’s cryptocurrency FX platform used for leveraged trading.
For the existing BTC/JPY, the exchange offers 5 times and 10 time leverages. However, as for the four new pairs, the exchange will only offer 5 times leverages. While there is no transaction fee, there is a leverage fee of 0.04 percent per day. The required margin for all pairs is the Japanese yen equivalent of 20 percent.
GMO Coin also announced that it was going to launch its GMO Coin Virtual Currency Wallet app for Android. The next day (Thursday) the cryptocurrency exchange subsidiary of GMO Internet announced the release of the wallet for the iOS platform.
