EnergiToken (ETK), which closed its $ 15 million ICO sale in 82 minutes, today announced that it will list on the first of two exchanges in a week. Community members will be able to deposit and withdraw ETK tokens with ETK/BTC trading pairs on Coinsuper from Thursday 14th June 2018.

Coinsuper is a world leading digital asset exchange founded in Hong Kong and in the top 20 exchanges on Coin Market Cap.

Energi Mine is using ETK to revolutionise the global energy market through decentralisation and blockchain technology. The ultimate goal is to reduce global energy demand and carbon emissions by creating a system of financial incentives for businesses and consumers to save energy.

Energi Mine will provide ETK to consumers in exchange for engaging in energy saving behaviours such as using public transportation, purchasing energy efficient appliances to reducing energy consumption.

Currently, phase 1 of the EnergiToken Rewards App (beta version) has already been launched in the UK and Korea with the Japanese version being released this week. So, if you own an electric car you can claim free tokens when you upload proof of purchase documentation.

Energi Mine are working with a number of other partners, including the Energy Managers Association (EMA) who manage the energy for 100k businesses, plus have a number of prospective partners and more announcements due out in the coming weeks.

Omar Rahim, CEO of Energi Mine says: “The Coinsuper team has great experience servicing the community with a reliable and stable exchange with high liquidity. We believe this is the ideal place to list ETK.”

Dr. Anthony Ng, COO of Coinsuper says: “We are excited to be part of Energi Mine ICO journey by being the first exchange that is going to list Energi Token. Their unique idea of rewarding businesses and end users to make energy saving choices marks them out as a company to watch out for in the crypto space.”

The listing on Coinsuper is the first listing of ETK on an exchange, ETK will also be listed on CoinBene this week. CoinBene is one of the largest cryptocurrency exchange platforms in Southeast Asia, used by millions from over 150 countries.

Thomson Reuters Launches Real Time Rates for Six Cryptocurrencies

Thomson Reuters is launching a cryptocurrency real-time rates data feed. The new service is expected to provide “reliable, real-time information” for six digital coins across major crypto exchanges. The stated goal is to encourage efficiency and transparency for cryptocurrency investors within the global market place.

Six Cryptocurrencies Will Be Tracked

The new Cryptocurrency Real Time Rates are already accessible through a customized API interface on Thomson Reuters Eikon platform. The application is providing trading data from various crypto exchanges including Bitflyer and Bitpoint. More trading platforms will be added in the future, according to a Reuters report.

The announcement comes after a recent Thomson Reuters survey found that cryptocurrency trading by financial firms is likely increase this year. About 20% of 400 finance companies participating in the study are considering entering trading crypto assets within 12 months. That means that one in every five of the undisclosed businesses plans to establish direct contact with cryptocurrencies in 2018.

Thomson Reuters Launches Real Time Rates for Six CryptocurrenciesPricing data for the real-time rates will cover six cryptocurrencies, not mentioned in the report. The launch of the service could be interpreted as an indication that Reuters is considering embracing the digital asset class on ‎its own trading platforms. In December, the mass media and information giant added bitcoin cash (BCH) to Eikon. BCH became only the third cryptocurrency to list on the platform after bitcoin core (BTC) and ethereum. ‎

The latest release comes after an announcement from CME Group which is launching a daily price benchmark for ‎Ethereum, as reported by Finance Magnates. The service will be provided in partnership with the cryptocurrency trading platform Crypto Facilities.‎

Earlier this year, Thomson Reuters Corp. announced the launch of a new version of the Marketpsych Indices sentiment data feed, which includes analysis of bitcoin market sentiment. The service is provided in cooperation with Marketpsych Data LLC, as news.Bitcoin.com reported in March. 400 news and social media sites, including many specific to cryptocurrencies, have been added to the feed. Each one of them is scanned and scored in real time to ascertain market-moving sentiments and themes.

Immense Growth Highlights Strong Momentum

According to Michael Go, head of FX Market Development for Asia Pacific at Thomson Reuters, the immense growth in the cryptocurrency market in the last decade highlights the strong momentum around the new technology and the tradable asset class. “Thomson Reuters Cryptocurrency Real Time Rates enhances our rate offering and helps create a transparent and efficient global marketplace, vital to the future stability of cryptocurrency trading to support the investor,” he commented.

“As the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, Bitflyer has made efforts to facilitate the development of cryptocurrency markets,” said Yuzo Kano, CEO and co-founder of the trading platform. He noted that Bitflyer is the first company to obtain license to trade cryptocurrencies in Japan, the US and Europe. “We are delighted to be able to provide valuable data to customers worldwide through Thomson Reuters,” Kano added.

President and representative director of Bitpoint, Genki Oda, also expressed satisfaction with the partnership on the real-time rates. “We are pleased to cooperate with Thomson Reuters in the further enhancement of its services and hope that our data will become a benchmark for the cryptocurrency industry as a global cryptocurrency trading exchange,” Oda said.
