Back in May FXOpen launched Ethereum-based trading pairs, offering access to both ETH/USD and ETH/BTC for both its live and demo clients. Natalia Zakharova, the firm’s Head of Global Sales, commented at the time: “With an ever increasing global interest in ethereum-based pairs and strong demand from our traders, we have quickly sourced the best liquidity available and added both ETH/USD and ETH/BTC markets our product range. We will also further expand out our crypto based accounts to include ethereum denominated accounts in the near future.”

In June FXOpen also introduced Dash-based pairs – again the first ever in the forex market to do so – offering access to DSH/BTC as well as ETH/RUB (ether/Russian ruble).
