Bitcoin Cash (BCHABC) and Bitcoin SV (BCHSV) are now available for margin trading for non-U.S. customers—at 2.5 times leverage—with Bitcoin (BTC) as the base pair.
This follows news on Tuesday that Ethereum Classic (ETC) was available for margin trading. Now Poloniex customers can trade on margin (all with BTC as the base pair) the following: BCHABC, BCHSV, ETC, XRP, ETH, XMR, STR, FCT, LTC, BTS, DOGE, DASH, MAID, and CLAM.
Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV won’t be the last, either, because we are working on adding other tokens and base pairs for margin. We are expanding the tokens available for margin as part of our effort to make Poloniex one of the most innovative exchanges in the world.
Like the other assets available for margin, BCHABC and BCHSV are also now available for lending. That means customers holding BCHABC and BCHSV can lend it to other customers and earn interest (set by the market).
