Reddcoin has become popular of late, with a healthy trading volume equal to over $200,000 during the past 24h. Cryptsy dominates with over 80% of this volume. The coin’s popularity in BTC trading was likely a factor in its being chosen for USD trading.

According to its website, Reddcoin is a “social currency that enriches people’s social lives and makes digital currency easy for the general public.” It integrates a digital currency platform with major social media networks. The coin is currently worth 20 satoshi. Its market cap is $3.4 million, ranking it 21st among all cryptocurrencies.

The addition comes days after Cryptsy adopted a market maker-taker fee structure. Market makers, which add liquidity through orders not immediately executable, are rewarded with 0.05% of the trade value. Market takers, removing liquidity through immediately executable orders, pay the regular 0.25% fee. Only verified accounts are eligible for the market maker rebate.

Cryptsy joins several other crypto exchanges that have adopted this fee model, which aims to increase liquidity and lower spreads.
