After a rough 2019, DigiByte, one of the fastest and most secure blockchains launched over six years ago, appears to be getting the recognition it deserved.

In late 2019, Justin Sun-acquired Poloniex exchange delisted DigiByte’s native currency DGB after the project’s founder Jared Tate criticized Tron.

Six months later, Binance, the largest crypto exchange by volume and userbase announced that it would list DGB for trading. Although Binance had initially requested a listing fee of $300,000 and 3% of DGB supply in September 2019, the coin was listed on June 22, 2020, without a listing fee. 

Interestingly, DigiByte has also found favor in the eyes of AI-powered Bitcoin and crypto exchange OceanEx. The exchange announced today that it will list DGB for trading next week. 

OceanEx is the 54th largest spot exchange by volume with a daily volume of $88 million and a trust score of 8/10, according to CoinGecko ranking.

According to exchange, starting June 30th, 2020 at 11:00 (UTC+8), traders will be able to deposit the DGB into their OceanEx accounts. Actual trading will begin at 11:00 on July 1st, 2020, and users will be able to trade the DGB/USDT pair.  The platform did not mention if or when other DGB trading pairs will be available.

OceanEx users will not be able to withdrawal their DGB until 11:00, Jul. 8th, 2020 (UTC+8), the exchange added. 

The news about the recent listings is no doubt a great one for the DigiByte community as it reflects growth. With Binance leading the way, more major exchanges like Coinbase may start to consider adding support for DGB trading.  

Despite the positive development,  DigiByte (DGB) is bleeding alongside the rest of the crypto market. At the time of writing, the coin is posting a 9.44% loss on the daily chart with its value trading at $0.019.
