Today (September 18), one of the world’s most popular digital assets exchanges, KuCoin officially announced its strategic partnership with the internationally well-known digital assets exchange Poloniex. KuCoin and Poloniex will join hands in trading technology research and development, liquidity sharing, product iterations, PoS and PoW mining pools, and other industrial exploration. The two parties will jointly promote the market which will set the existing market to translation into an incremental market and from intra-industry competition to mass development with collaboration; at the same time, the two parties will also co-invest researching resources in derivatives and the matching engine technology, and set up a joint research institute to explore new industry opportunities.
KuCoin is a world-famous digital asset exchange that supports the trading of a variety of digital assets. Since it launched in September 2017, KuCoin has grown into one of the most popular digital assets exchanges, providing one-stop services such as spot trading, futures, pool-X and lending to its 6 million users in 207 countries and regions around the world. The partnership with Poloniex is a brand new attempt for KuCoin to expand its strategic footprint. KuCoin will make full use of its expertise in matching engines and futures to help Poloniex grow further. At the same time, Poloniex’s long-term experience in the field of digital asset trading will provide a solid foundation for both parties to explore new opportunities in the blockchain industry.
This strategic cooperation with Poloniex is of great significance to KuCoin. Thanks to Poloniex’s long-term experience and accumulation in this industry, the overseas development of KuCoin will enter a fast track, and both parties will have more opportunities to make new attempts in more fields, contributing to the elevating of the entire industry.
KuCoin CEO Johnny commented: “due to the complexity of today’s international political and economic situation, global institutional and even individual investors are seeking to balance the new systemic risk and long-term strategic returns of high-quality assets. Decentralized digital assets that are neither endorsed nor supported by sovereign credit are rapidly becoming one of the world’s most popular quality investing targets.
In other words, the market demand for digital assets is growing rapidly to address this desire and becoming an indispensable factor in the new global economy. At this point of time, the strategic cooperation between KuCoin and Poloniex will help us better capture the opportunity of the blockchain era. As this strategic move follows the development trend of the digital asset industry, we will be able to capture the incremental market growth and bring prosperity to this industry from multiple dimensions.
I believe, when we look back in five years, the strategic partnership between KuCoin and Poloniex would be viewed as a remarkable milestone of the digital assets industry.”
VP of Global Business and marketing of POLONIEX, Shelley Wu, commented: “We are very excited to be able to reach a strategic partnership with KuCoin. For a long time, the digital-asset exchange industry has been in a state of internal attrition and competition, but this is not healthy for the industry. The strategic cooperation between Poloniex and KuCoin shows that there is not only competition in the industry, but also the possibility of mutually beneficial cooperation and collaboration. When the industry can unite as one and forge ahead, the entire industry will benefit from it. The partnership has set a firm and influential role model.”
