Following this initial promotion, BUX Crypto users will always have the option to trade with zero-commission as long as they hold 2,500 BUX tokens in their portfolio.
BUX Crypto will initially be offering a selection of six cryptocurrency assets and will continue to add additional assets throughout the year. The initial offering includes Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC) and BUX Token (BUX).
