An increasing number of trading platforms have started trading Bitcoin Cash (BCH, BCC), the new cryptocurrency resulting from the blockchain split on August 1.
At 7 AM UCT on August 2, the 24-hour trading volume for Bitcoin Cash is approximately $130 million, according to Coinmarketcap. The new cryptocurrency is already ranked No. 3 among all cryptocurrencies, behind only bitcoin and ether.
Bittrex offers BCC/BTC, BCC/ETH and BCC/USDT trading pairs. Its collective 24-hour trading volume for all three pairs was at the time of writing approximately $59 million, with the BCC/BTC trading pair accounting for over $54 million volume.
Kraken opened BCH trading on August 1 at 13:24 UTC, shortly after the last common block on both chains, 478558, was mined. Trading began before customers were credited with BCH, leading to some criticisms. By 18:38 UTC, Kraken announced that all customers had been credited. The site had some problems as customers were trying to trade the new cryptocurrency. One customer tweeted, “BCH credited, disappeared, reappeared. Several crashes, but finally managed to sell some XBT for BCH.”
Three trading pairs are available on Kraken; BCH/EUR, BCH/USD, and BCH/XBT, with a collective 24-hour trading volume of approximately $49 million.
Viabtc announced on August 1 that it had started BCC deposits and withdrawals, stating that:
BCC deposits to Viabtc will be available for trading after 1 confirmation and withdrawal after 20 confirmations.
In contrast, bitcoin deposits will be available for trading after 1 confirmation and withdrawal after 6 confirmations. BCC/CNY and BCC/BTC and the two trading pairs available.
Bter has about $4.3 million 24-hour trading volume for its two trading pairs BCC/CNY BCC/BTC. The former accounts for $4.26 million and the latter only $44,860 in volume.
