Danish cryptocurrency exchange platform CCEDK announces it has started accepting Darkcoin, allowing the privacy-centered digital currency to gain wider European exposure.
Launched in May 2014, CCEDK is a Danish digital currency exchange platform, which offers trading in Bitcoin, Litecoin, Peercoin, Nxt, Nubits, BlackCoin, Bitshares, Dogecoin, Reddcoin, FIMKrypto, Bitmark, and since yesterday, Darkcoin.
Along with its extensive supported cryptocurrency list, the platform also offers a wide range of fiat currencies, which includes Danish/Norwegian kroner, British pounds, US dollars and euros. Thanks to a partnership with Skrill Direct Banking, CCEDK has been supporting direct deposits from 3,600-plus European banks in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Poland, Hungary, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Switzerland, since the end of June.
Through its English and Russian bilingual interface, CCEDK aims to cover a wide audience, and according to its website, tends "to be the no.1 choice of crypto coins exchange service worldwide." The company said it had plans to expand its service with additional interfaces in Spanish, Portuguese, German, French, Danish and Chinese.
Along with "constantly improving its variety of payment services," and striving to enable instant payment methods, CCEDK said to be focusing on security and transparency. Notably, the company stores 30% of cryptocurrency revenues in a "reserve fund" to protect customers in case of losses. Regarding transparency, the company displays publicly the law firm its been working with, and said it was firmly following the SEPA regulations.
While Darkcoin is consequently gaining popularity in Europe, notably in Russia, Ukraine and Poland, Darkcoin's integration into CCEDK seems like a coherent move and should benefit to both the exchanger, and the cryptocurrency's expansion.
On September 29, Darkcoin developers announced the digital currency exited its beta versions, and officially opened its source. While the altcoin's price rallied in the first half of September, the price curiously began to drop following the announcement.
Earlier this week, an attack on the network forced Darkcoin's developers to patch the masternode list syncing functionality. The attacker gained control over the majority of the masternodes by exploiting "the fact that [they] were not checking the signing key correctly," allowing the individual to sign with an invalid key.
Darkcoin developers urge all users to update to the latest binaries.
