TRON Cryptocurrency News Today. OKEx cryptocurrency exchange has announced Thursday that will list TRON (TRX) on its customer-to-customer (C2C) trading market which is its equivalent of a peer-to-peer trading desk.
OKEx is the second largest cryptocurrency trading platform by adjusted trading volume according to data from Coinmarketcap. At the time of writing the exchange has processed $759 million worth of trades in the last 24 hours and TRON accounts for about 3 percent of the trades.
How OKEx C2C Trading Platform works
Through its C2C platform, OKEx allows users to trade cryptocurrencies directly with each other, much like p2p trading in some other platforms. Users can place orders to buy or sell cryptocurrency at prices which they determine by themselves.
The exchange has been on a drive to popularize its C2C trading features and has added support for fiat currencies including Chinese renminbi, Vietnamese dong, Russian rubles, and Thai Baht.
“To put it briefly, C2C Trading allows our users to buy/sell cryptocurrencies with fiat currencies,” OKEx wrote on its website. It then went on to elaborate:
“We decided to name the platform “C2C” (customer-to-customer) because it is a decentralized trading platform. And we charge zero fees for transactions between users at the C2C Trading marketplace. Users can freely make or take a post order, and trade at their own desired prices and volume.”
The exchange plans events to introduce British pounds (GBP) and Turkish Lira (TRY) later this month.

In the second phase, the exchange will distribute $90,000 worth of TRX to users who completed TRX trading during pthe romo period. To be eligible, users must have completed trades of more than 300 dollars.
