The firm offers an exclusive reward system that ensures traders receive compensation for active engagement, as well as the possibility to profit from different trading styles.

XBO has announced a pre-launch competition to get users acquainted with the new digital asset exchange.

The crypto trading platform is offering investors the opportunity to pre-register and complete the verification process to the platform for a chance to earn special rewards and account privileges.

Merging gaming-inspired UI with the latest security practices, the trading platform aims to provide a comfortable and visually appealing alternative to existing exchange platforms.

XBO offers reward system for active engagement

As investors still lick their wounds from the recent market crash that led to losses valued at trillions, XBO sees the current environment as an opportunity for new and upcoming crypto projects, and more creative engagement methods meant to attract new investors for the benefit of the whole ecosystem.

XBO leverages social gaming UX elements to boost user experience while making buying and selling digital assets simple for amateur investors that find traditional crypto trading platforms intimidating and experienced investors alike. The firm aims to be both user-friendly and reliable for trading.

The firm offers an exclusive reward system that ensures traders receive compensation for active engagement, as well as the possibility to profit from different trading styles.

No commission on deposits, cashback, spot trading, rewards

The pre-release competition will start by offering investors a chance to complete the verification process to immediately gain the Gold status account, granting traders benefits in the form of no commissions on crypto deposits, exchange cashback, spot trading, crypto rewards, and more.

The Black Diamond tier is the most luxurious status on the platform and account benefits for early subscribers stay for life, whereas accounts who attain special status will have to maintain their status, the firm explained.

Shimon Baron, Chief Marketing Officer of XBO, commented: “XBO was designed to fit as many trading styles as possible. Especially in the bear market that we’re witnessing, the importance of drawing more investors to crypto is paramount in supporting the DeFi space as a whole. At XBO we believe that crypto exchanges can seem intimidating to potential investors and the platform’s design, along with the ability to be attuned to different trading needs can help maximize engagement.”

XBO hired experts from eToro and NAGA

CMO Shimon Baron joined XBO from world-renowned broker eToro, where he played an important role in the crypto division and eToro Money, from August 2020 to May 2022.

XBO also counts with Pawel Cichowski as Head of Dealing. The experienced trader was Chief Dealer at NAGA for nearly two years, based in Cyprus, before joining XBO. Prior to NAGA, he spent nearly eight years at FxPro, first as FX Dealer and then as Supervisor Dealer. Other roles include Dealer at Meritum Bank and Market Analyst at Reuters.

The crypto trading platform is now preparing to launch with a secure environment for trading and advanced verification measures created to speed up the loading process.

Time for brokers to add options trading as volumes explode on high volatility

“Usually, adding options to the typical CFDs and equities offering leads to fragmentation of the platform technology as many brokers will need additional back-end and front-end components, and that could be an important barrier for them. Apart from that, legal hassle and costs associated with proper licensing of market data could be a barrier at first. We are seeing this trend among market data vendors and exchanges to make it easier and more affordable.”
