SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 13 February 2018 - OCOIN (OCN), the cryptocurrency of ODYSSEY, has gone 'live' on South Korean exchange, FUNCoin, today, marking its successful entry into the South Korean market for the first time. This means that investors and traders alike are now able to trade across any country or region due to FUNCoin's global cryptocurrency trading platform.
FUNCoin is one of the few exchanges in South Korea that meets the KMC real-name certification system required by its government. This puts FUNCoin in the same league as exchanges such as Bithumb, Upbit, Coinone and Korbit. Just two weeks ago, ODYSSEY, the Singapore-based Foundation, behind OCOIN (OCN), announced that its official cryptocurrency got listed on six major cryptocurrency exchanges, Huobi Pro, Gate.IO, Bit-Z, Kucoin, Bjex and Cobinhood.
Launched two months ago, ODYSSEY has already become one of the most talked-about blockchain platforms within the sharing economy. It promises to build the next-generation decentralized sharing economy and Peer-to-Peer ecosystem. Currently, ODYSSEY is based on the Ethereum protocol, but it will also be collaborating with Qtum, leveraging on its interoperability to deliver a universal, seamless and open-source system to all users.
Sophie Guan, Project Lead of ODYSSEY, enthused, "We are ecstatic to be listed on FUNCoin. It opens up an additional yet authentic trading platform for all interested parties. South Korea is an important market to us and represents our commitment to operate and reach out to not only its citizens, but also to users across the globe. As one of the few exchanges to be awarded the KMC real-name certification system, we are confident that this will help safeguard and ensure a responsible code of conduct among traders."
