New York-based crypto-exchange Gemini is adding the Basic Attention Token (BAT) to its cryptocurrencies lineup before the end of April, a statement says.
BAT trading will begin at 9.30 AM Eastern time on April 24. The coin will trad against the US dollar, Bitcoin and Ethereum.
“We are pleased to announce support for Basic Attention Token (BAT) trading on the Gemini platform. Beginning Friday, April 24th at 9:30am ET you will be able to deposit BAT into your Gemini account with trading to follow soon thereafter.”
Basic Attention Token is the Brave Browser’s native currency token, which is designed to provide a more efficient and effective mechanism to connect and reward users, advertisers, and publishers.
Brave blocks unsolicited ads and tracking by default, and when they opt-in to view ads, rewards users with BAT payments. Users can then contribute BAT directly or indirectly to the sites they visit while enjoying a faster, safer browsing experience that is accomplished without revealing the history or preferences of a user browsing.
Six Digital Assets on Gemini Platform
BAT is the sixth digital asset on the Gemini platform for trading, joining Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Zcash. On both continuous order book and automated block trading system, Gemini will offer USD, BTC, and ETH trading pairs for BAT.
In September, the exchange created an institutional-grade custody platform. It started with 18 cryptocurrencies when it launched, including Basic Attention Token.
