Boerse Stuttgart’s Bison expands offering to 17 cryptocurrencies

BISON, the crypto trading platform powered by Boerse Stuttgart Group, adds seven new coins to its crypto portfolio. BISON customers can now trade: Aave (AAVE), Algorand (ALGO), Decentraland (MANA), Dogecoin (DOGE), Polygon (MATIC), Sandbox (SAND), and Shiba Inu (SHIB).

Seven new coins are now available for trading, including SHIB, SAND, and DOGE
“We’re constantly and carefully refining our product range and expanding our portfolio. With these new coins, we now cover both established altcoins as well as young, promising technologies and, as usual, continue to offer our customers a safe, reliable environment to trade and store their cryptocurrencies,” commented Dr. Ulli Spankowski, Chief Digital Officer of Boerse Stuttgart Group, as well as founder and CEO of BISON.

The following additional coins can now be traded by BISON users in the usual secure, smart, and fee-free manner:

1. Aave (AAVE): This is one of the most well-known DeFi protocols developed through decentralized governance (DAO). AAVE is the Aaave protocol’s governance token and was originally called ETHLEND. It is a decentralized lending platform and one of the most important liquidity protocols in the DeFi world. Aave enables people to lend cryptocurrencies: Among other things, Aave users can deposit digital assets without a central party to receive interest.

2. Algorand (ALGO): This is a decentralized and scalable open source blockchain project. The Algorand network is based on a pure proof-of-stake (Pure PoS) consensus mechanism and aims to operate the first blockchain with a negative carbon footprint.

3. Decentraland (MANA): A virtual reality (VR) game serves as the basis for this cryptocurrency. It runs on the Ethereum blockchain and has become the currency used for all games in Decentraland. Players can use MANA to buy goods and services on the Decentraland marketplace, as well as create their own content on the platform.

4. Dogecoin (DOGE): This is one of the most popular altcoins. It’s an open source and peer-to-peer digital currency inspired by the “DOGE” meme that went viral back in 2013. Dogecoin is primarily used for tipping on Reddit and Twitter to reward exceptional content on social media.
5. Polygon (MATIC): Originally developed in 2017 as “Matic Network” in an effort to improve the Ethereum infrastructure, this network ended up rebranding as “Polygon”. The aim behind Polygon is to mitigate high gas fees and slow block confirmations, making crypto more accessible to a broader market. Polygon is often used in the development of dApps.

6. The Sandbox (SAND): This technology aims to bring blockchains into mainstream gaming. SAND is an Ethereum-based “utility token”. In the Sandbox environment, it’s the only valid cryptocurrency. Within this project, users can easily buy, sell, create, and develop digital assets, and thereby contribute content to the Metaverse. SAND owners are also part of the decentralized governance (DAO) that promotes future product developments.

7. Shiba Inu (SHIB): This is an alternative to Dogecoin that’s also based on a dog, but runs on the Ethereum blockchain. SHIB is an ERC20 token and 50% of its total supply has already been burned to promote its stability.

Reliable crypto trading
Alongside the ten coins already established on BISON (Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano, Chainlink, Ethereum, Litecoin, Polkadot, Ripple, Solana, and Uniswap), users can also trade new cryptocurrencies without any fees. BISON makes its profit from the spreads between the buying and selling prices displayed, which typically amounts to 0.75 percent per transaction. Users are not charged any other costs or fees, such as those for custody or the deposit and withdrawal of cryptocurrencies. Boerse Stuttgart Group’s crypto platform also offers its already over 700,000 active users a variety of useful features, like limit orders, where users can set a price to buy or sell a particular cryptocurrency. At BISON – as part of Boerse Stuttgart Group and its 160-year history – transparency, security, and sustainable availability of the platform are top priorities. BISON customers’ assets are held 1:1 on a fiduciary basis at blocknox GmbH in Germany, a regulated subsidiary of Boerse Stuttgart Group. In this regulated environment, the BISON platform – which was launched at the beginning of 2019 – offers, among other things, a comprehensive security concept including insurance against hacker attacks, theft, and technical loss.
