Two emerging cryptocurrencies – THEKEY (TKY) and INK (INK) – have been listed by HitBTC, the crypto exchanges that has been operative since 2013 and dubs itself the “most advanced Bitcoin exchange.”

The first to have been granted a listing was THEKEY on Wednesday morning (JST). THEKEY is a NEO-based NEP5 token that represents the only method to settle smart contracts signed between the three participants of THEKEY ecosystem: validators, service providers, and individual users (see: whitepaper).

HitBTC’s listing of TKY included just one trading pair: TKY/BTC.

As for INK – the second Wednesday HitBTC listing – the official announcement didn’t come until the evening. Here, it revealed how three trading pairs would be supporting INK: INK/BTC, INK/ETH, and INK/USDT.

Built atop the Qtum blockchain, INK represents the essential medium employed to use applications and services in the Ink Ecosystem (see: whitepaper). Ink Labs Foundation Ltd is based in Singapore.

At the time of writing, HitBTC is ranked fifth among exchanges for 24-hour trading volume – according to CoinMarketCap.
