Blockport opens USD market with TrueUSD integration

In anticipation of our upcoming Security Token Offering (STO), Blockport is excited to announce a new partnership with TrueUSD (TUSD).

The partnership is a large first step into Blockport’s US-market roll-out, and will allow Blockport users to begin trading BPT with a collateralized token backed by the US Dollar. This platform integration will see Blockport supporting USD-backed trading pairs and serves as a stepping stone to accept US Dollar deposits on the platform.

“Global metrics show that USD trading pairs have the highest trading volumes, and are the most used currency for trading Bitcoins,” said Sebastiaan Lichter, co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Blockport. “This is a huge step toward bringing Blockport to the US Market and the markets of over 150 other countries and jurisdictions worldwide.”

The first trading pair (BPT/TUSD) is set to launch in Q2, 2019. Following this launch, Blockport traders will be able to begin trading BPT with a collateralized token pegged to the price of the US dollar in early Q2, 2019.

By creating a space in which both TrustToken and Blockport can combine their complementary services, that bridge is reinforced, creating a win-win scenario that supports the industry as a whole, as well as traders worldwide.

“Blockport and TrustToken have both set out to build solutions that seamlessly bridge the traditional world of finance with the new digital economy,” said Tory Reiss, Co-founder and Head of Partnerships and Business Development at TrustToken. “We are excited to be working with Blockport to greatly advance this mission and bring the benefits of tokenized currencies to more people around the world.”
