PrimeXBT Expands Offering with New Products

Founded in 2018, PrimeXBT offers leveraged trading, real-time market data and analysis tools across a wide spectrum of crypto assets. The company has the aspiration to bridge the gap between cryptocurrencies and traditional asset classes, boasting features including 100x leverage, advanced order types and charting tools.

PrimeXBT has recently enhanced its offering to provide a cross-market platform that allows traders to transact a plethora of crypto and fiat currencies.

Most recently, it has officially gone live with its copy trading platform, which was developed in a B2B partnership with European digital asset exchange, Covesting.

The combined offering allows less-versed cryptocurrency users to automatically copy the trades of the experienced traders on the platform, thus creating a P2P asset management solution. In return, the copied trader earns up to 20% of follower equity profit just for automatically replicating the trades. Covesting charges an additional 10% for facilitating the process, which means the investor makes 70 percent of the original profit without getting involved in the actual trading.

PrimeXBT, which claims it handles more than $200 million in daily volumes, has released a product that mimics the attributes of binary options trading. Called ‘PrimeXBT Turbo’, the platform may appeal to the same type of people that traded binaries in the past or even those playing poker online.
