August was yet another solid month of activity and enhancements! We offered more versatile trading products for users to stay on top of the market: a total of 15 coins were listed on the Exchange and the App, including DeFi coins LRC, REN, DAI, COMP, and BNT; AUD bank transfer is available on App; and most importantly, we’re swapping MCO to CRO! There are now many more ways for you to use CRO: Crypto.com Pay merchants can now accept CRO payments from any ERC-20 wallet, representing a big milestone in CRO utility, and a major step towards widespread adoption of CRO. For Crypto.com Exchange fans, we’ve rolled out new benefits for you and anyone you refer: with the all new Stake-to-Take and Referral Program, you and your referrals will benefit from generous rewards and trading fee discounts! For all the updates released in August, read on!
