Harmony One, the deep sharded scalable blockchain built by a team of engineers from Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Harvard and Stanford, has announced its launch on KuCoin exchange. The trading will start at 6pm (UTC+8), August 22nd and supported trading pairs include ONE/BTC and ONE/USDT.
With over 5 million registered users from about 100 countries and regions, KuCoin, an IDG-backed crypto exchange, is often known for a wide range of tradable digital assets. By listing high quality blockchain projects, the platform aims to better meet investors’ needs while provide enhanced liquidity of projects’ token to worldwide base of users.
Garlam Won, Head of Marketing at Harmony One said,
“We want to make $ONE available to everyone in the world, regardless of their country, race or gender. And having a global exchange like Kucoin as a launch partner will allow us to provide liquidity of $ONE without borders”
With the mainnet launched, Harmony is expanding its ecosystem out into the Non-Fungible Collectibles sector with its recent acquisition of Sequoia funded digital collectible startup Quidd with Animoca Brands. Quidd raised $13m in venture funding led by Sequoia to build a digital collectible mobile app.
Today, Quidd has 325 brand licenses including Game of Thrones, Rick and Morty, and Marvel superheroes. Quidd has issued and sold over 2.1 billion individually-serialized digital collectibles, and generated over $10m in gross revenues from its community of digital collectors.
With a focus towards radical decentralization and fair economy, Harmony’s recent initiative Pangaea onboarded 700 nodes as a participant, making it the biggest game of stake ever played in the blockchain space.
Since launching the IEO on Binance, Harmony One has been expanding its liquidity through Bitmax as well as being oversubscribed by 12,000% on their recent launch on Gate.io. Harmony One has also been shortlisted by Coinbase as one of the 8 assets to be added to Coinbase.
Harmony is a fast and secure blockchain. Built by a team of engineers from Google, Apple, Amazon, Harvard and Stanford, Harmony helps businesses build marketplaces of fungible tokens (such as energy credits and loyalty points) and non-fungible assets (such as game collectibles and real estate). Harmony has a robust ecosystem building strategy focused on creating partnerships that drive adoption of the protocol.
