The Rock Trading adds Gemini USD stable coin

Adding Gemini USD stable coin

We add Gemini USD, a stable coin pegged to USD dollars and approved by U.S. regulators, namely, the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS).
There have been a lot of talking and hype around stable coins lately. A “stable coin” is a cryptocurrency that is pegged to another stable asset, like gold or currencies like USD or EUR. It combines some of the advantages of math coins with the stability of a “real world” currency.

The Rock Trading moves to Italy

Italians do it better (?)

Following a number of strategic decisions and new potential partnerships, we will be moving to Italy and we will have to remove margin trading.
In the last year or so, we have worked hard behind the scene, for a big change in our company: we are moving all of our operations, including legal, finance, IT, offices, etc. to Italy.
It’s a long story, but I’ll make this short, by stating that this will led to a couple of important changes to therocktrading.

bitcoin fork, 1st August updates

We will support bitcoin fork of 1st August. This document will be constantly updated with the timeline actions about the fork, so please follow it carefully

Fee restructuring for withdrawals (and deposits)

This story started when bitcoin network fees got to a level beyond our current fixed fee of 0.0005 BTC per withdrawal.
For a while we took the hit of losing money on each bitcoin withdrawal, but had to find a solution, sooner or later. We hate to increase fees, so that’s what we have done.
