Despite tens of billions of dollars having been wiped off the entire cryptoasset market cap in the early stages of this week, we continue to see price-sensitive listing announcements being made by noteworthy crypto exchanges; each striving to differentiate themselves in a space that Binance CEO Zhao Changpeng recently confirmed is a highly lucrative.
Over the past 36 hours, many high-profile cryptocurrencies – namely Zcash (ZEC), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Ontology (ONT) – have been listed by various crypto trading platforms.
Zcash To Circle
The Goldman Sachs-backed Circle Internet Financial Ltd informed customers on Monday that the privacy-centric Zcash was being made available on Circle Invest – their recently launched crypto investing mobile app that had offered five cryptoassets prior to $ZEC.
Hello, Zcash 👋. A new coin just joined the Circle Invest family, and it’s available for you to buy right now. Learn more here: https://t.co/pR0y6T1H2K

Sterling Forks Head To London
In an announcement that saw their cryptoasset offering expand by 50 percent, the London Block Exchange (LBX) added Bitcoin hard fork, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum pre-fork, Ethereum Classic, to its trading platform; the only dedicated multi-cryptocurrency exchange in the UK.
Per LBX, they are now “the first exchange to offer on-short UK Banking and a GBP pairing for ETC and BCH (ETCGBP & BCHGBP).”
Ontology Now Exists In India
Koinex – the young, fast-growing Indian cryptocurrency exchange – revealed on Monday that the NEO-based Ontology Network (ONT) was being listed. ONT will soon be tradable against the Indian Rupee (INR) and Ripple (XRP).

Of course, Koinex received much publicity over the weekend when they announced eight cryptocurrency pairs based on Ripple’s XRP digital token. Koinex – which remains available exclusively to Indian customers – tweeted that their “XRP-based trading market” represented the first “in the crypto world.”
