Last Friday, we announced that the Digitex Futures exchange will launch to the public on July 31. After the rollercoaster of a journey to launch, we’re marking the occasion in style with a live trading event, including over $250,000 (DGTX) worth of giveaways! You’ll want to make sure you’re online trading on the DFE to be in with a chance of winning. Here, Adam tells us what to expect on the big day, and we confirm the first participants in a stellar line-up of crypto stars.
Just in case there are any doubts about that insane figure of $500 million in 24-hour volume that Adam mentioned, here are the numbers:
This kind of volume means that Digitex is set to become an immediate rival to some of the biggest derivatives platforms on the market today, and we’re only just starting out.
We’re seeing several questions from the community cropping up on the Telegram channels, asking about some of the specifics of the launch day event. Tomorrow, we’re planning to publish a Q&A addressing everything that’s come up so far. So if you want to ask anything, hop onto either the mainnet Telegram channel or main Digitex channel and post it there. One of our 24/7 support team will pick it up and make sure it gets included.
Joining us for the launch day trading event will be a stellar lineup of influencers from the cryptocurrency space. We’ll be announcing the full schedule over the coming days, but, in no particular order, here’s a first look at a few of the names who’ll be there on the day.
Ivan on Tech
Ivan Liljeqvist of Ivan on Tech was one of crypto’s early adopters, having studied Bitcoin and blockchain since 2014. When Ethereum launched in 2015, he learned the Solidity programming language and dApp development, starting his YouTube channel as a side gig in 2017.
Now, he’s one of crypto’s top influencers, having hit over 235,000 subscribers for over 1,000 videos. He broadcasts daily from his base in Stockholm, covering all aspects of the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. He also runs his own trading academy, helping the next generation of developers get blockchain certified. We’re proud to say that he also recently rated DGTX as one of his top undervalued altcoins to watch.
Ben Armstrong from BitBoy Crypto is another early adopter, having been a fan of Bitcoin since 2012. Since February 2018, he’s been a regular broadcaster on YouTube, reaching over 82,000 subscribers. His channel provides a variety of content covering news, token and wallet reviews, comedy snippets, and more.
Since launching, he’s expanded the BitBoy Crypto brand into a news website, leading a team of contributors across three continents. He also has his own range of branded merchandise available via the website. BitBoy Crypto also recently featured DGTX as one of his altcoin picks, forecasting returns that could mirror the levels seen in 2017.
Altcoin Daily is a YouTube channel run by brothers Aaron and Austin Arnold. It does what it says – a daily chat about crypto, with a heavy slant towards altcoins. Pitching themselves as “everymen for the everyman,” they’ve amassed over 209,000 subscribers since starting in January 2018.
As if that weren’t enough, they also have over 25,000 followers on Twitter. Altcoin Daily has featured some of the biggest names in crypto, including Anthony Pompliano and Binance CEO, CZ.
Those in the English-speaking cryptoverse may not be familiar with Top Traders, but among the Russian-speaking community, they are huge. Their main channel is on Telegram, where they post all the latest news, analysis, and promotions in the Russian language to their channel followers. With over 100,000 followers and over 200,000 unique views each week, they’re one of the biggest news sources for Russian-speaking crypto users.
They also run a Medium account, where they conduct due diligence and analysis on various crypto projects for their followers.
K-DUB, aka Crypto Zombie, broadcasts daily to over 120,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. He covers a variety of crypto news, product reviews, and trading tutorials, having amassed close to 15 million views since he started in 2017.
He also posts regular insights into market price movements on the Crypto Zombie Twitter account, with close to 25,000 followers. K-DUB interviewed Adam back in 2018, so we’re delighted to be reconnecting with him for our big launch event.
We couldn’t be more pumped to have such a high-profile group joining us for the biggest day in Digitex history. We’ll be revealing more about what you can expect from the launch event, including unveiling some more special guests and pro traders participating on July 31. Make sure you keep an eye on out for more updates as they happen.
The DFE Public Launch event will take place live on the official Digitex Futures Youtube channel.
