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.
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.
Bitcoin hard fork and The Rock Trading
Hello rockers, recently we have been asked several times what we are going to do in case of a bitcoin hard fork by Bitcoin Unlimited and miners supporting it. TheRockTrading, along with other exchanges, has signed a public document trying to clarify our position on the matter. As far as I understood, it did not clarify much because each side has read it according to their own vision :-).
