Bitfinex To Issue An Exchange Token

Bifinex, which is a crypto exchange based in Hong Kong, is looking at the possibility of issuing a proprietary exchange token. Dong Zhao, who is known for being an over-the-counter trader in China, reportedly announced it via weibo. The stakeholder at the company also confirmed that the exchange is interested in planning the said issuance.

Zhao, however, suggested that as far as the details about the narrative are concerned, they are yet to be “100 percent confirmed.” Bitfinex has also declined giving further details. As of press time, it remains a mystery as to how entirely the plan will be executed. The same thing can be said in terms of what expectations the participants could have.
