There’s been a lot of chatter over the past few days about a new bitcoin exchange based out of Denmark. As noted in our coverage, this exchange is touting maximum security as one of its main selling points.
Today the exchange, named CCEDK, has finally launched. In effort to act as a transparent operation, exchange founder Ronny Boesing has reportedly made 1,000 bitcoins available for trading — a fairly large liquidity pool for a newly-launched exchange.
A view of the exchange’s operation shows a rather amateur-looking interface, but time will tell whether the promises of security will attract traders.
CCEDK has called their service a crime-free environment, and CEO Boesing has said he’s planning to set aside a whopping thirty percent of revenues into a doomsday fund that would reimburse traders if things went sour.
Whether or not that’s another selling point or cause for concern is up to you.
The exchange is operating under Danish law, and will function as if regulated by a government authority.
“Our strongest selling point will be that clients will know where we are, that the jurisdiction is Danish and that there’s complete transparency. We link to our lawyer on our website in case anyone feels they need one,” said Boesing.
Both bitcoin and litecoin trading are available with exchange options to the Danish and Norwegian Kroner, the U.S. Dollar, Pound Sterling, and Euro.
