Cobinhood, a cryptocurrency exchange platform, announced on Thursday that it has launched Margin Trading on its platform. Starting Friday, users of the exchange now have access to Margin Trading, Short Selling, and Margin Funding.
According to the statement, Margin Trading on the exchange gives traders access to three times more leverage than previously available for the following crypto pairs: BTC/USDT, ETH/USDT, ETH/BTC, and COB/ETH.
Short Selling is also now available for the same cryptocurrency pairs, allowing traders to have access to potentially higher returns and again have access to three times more leverage.
For cryptocurrencies COB, BTC, ETH, and USDT, users have access to Margin Funding. This means margin traders are provided with cryptocurrency funds in exchange for interests earned on funding amounts provisioned.

Cobinhood Launches Dexon
Cobinhood was launched in 2017 and claims to be the world’s first fee-free and high-frequency cryptocurrency trading platform. Earlier this year, Cobinhood, announced the launch of a decentralized platform called Dexon. The project is backed by top-tier venture capital firms including San Francisco-headquartered IDG Capital, a firm which manages $20 billion worth of assets.
At the time of the announcement, the firm claimed Dexon to be the fastest blockchain available in the market. It is optimistic that advantages like infinite scalability and low latency will make it ideal for the banking industry and other real-world requirements.
