26 August 2020 – Bitcoin Suisse is happy to announce the addition of DOT – the native token of the Polkadot network – to its wide range of crypto assets available for trading and staking. One of the most highly anticipated blockchain projects worldwide with a focus on interoperability and scalability, Polkadot recently launched its main net to great interest from the blockchain community.

Now Bitcoin Suisse clients may easily buy and sell DOT tokens, along with over 35 other cryptocurrencies, in the Bitcoin Suisse Online platform any time of day or night. They may also take advantage of Bitcoin Suisse’s all-in-one staking service for DOT to participate in the Polkadot network and earn DOT staking rewards.

Founded by some of the blockchain industry’s foremost builders, Polkadot aims to help solve the problem of walled gardens in the crypto industry by connecting private and consortium blockchains, public and permissionless networks as well as oracles, while laying the groundwork for the decentralized web of the future. Polkadot allows any type of data to be sent between any type of blockchain, paving the way for new decentralized marketplaces that can operate seamlessly. More information about the Polkadot network is available here.

Support for DOT trading and staking shows again Bitcoin Suisse’s deep commitment to the decentralized finance and blockchain ecosystem.

“We believe that Polkadot has an important role to play in solving the problems of blockchain interoperability. We look forward to supporting this next phase in the growth of the ecosystem by adding DOT to our trading offering and helping clients stake on the Polkadot network,” said Fabian Hediger, Bitcoin Suisse Co-Founder and Head Product Development and Innovation.

Polkadot is the flagship project of Zug-based Web3 Foundation, with development support from Parity Technologies. Top teams building on Polkadot include Acala, who is building a cross-chain stablecoin platform; Moonbeam, a smart contract parachain that allows developers to use their existing Ethereum applications on Polkadot; and Chainlink, who is bringing their oracle technology to Polkadot users.
