Recommended Posts


I just received an email from the bitstamp team, tomorow they start with an new landing page and  they promiss other exciting anniuncements..

Anybody any idea what to expect?

The mail:


Dear xxxxx,

We hope you've had a good weekend! Ours has been busy spent putting the finishing touches to the next phase in our development, so we have a lot to tell you.

First up, we will be launching a new landing page on Monday, so do not be alarmed! No, there is no need to adjust your monitor and, yes, we do hope you like the new look! We think it ties in well with our #followtheline social media campaign. Find out more here.

Our other exciting announcements will be made tomorrow, but we promise you it will be worth the short wait!

Yeah I received this mail too, I look forward to some nice changes :)

I can imagine a horisontal a vertical growth with means to the cryptocurrencies, considering the small amount (only 2 of them) available at Bitstamp - BTC and XRP.
Both the withdrawal and deposit functionality scopes are quite wide, I don't expect any improvement there.

By horisontal growth I mean that they would introduce new tools, maybe options, forwards, etc. for the existing two currencies

By vertical growth I mean introducing a lot of other cryptocurrencies. Eventhough Bitstamp seems to be conservative, there are a number of currencies out there which are confirmed and quite solid at this point.

At the end of the day all trading sites want to make money one way or the other, I think both of these would increase their revenues.

I thought I'd see the changes at this point of the day, but still nothing...
Can't wait! :)

Cheers guys- BB

The new landing page is up


Not much change right now besides more clarity and a cleaner interface, XRP is mentioned as much as BTC. A better trading view, soon to add Litecoin and Ethereum and margin trading.



Dear customers,

Since starting out in 2011, our mission has been to be the safest and most reliable digital currency exchange on the market. As you know, our watchwords have always been stability and organic growth, and we have always taken a cautious approach. This mentality has served us well, and now the time is right to take the next step towards the fulfilment of our vision. 

We have new digital currency trading pairs to announce. There’s some news about our website redesign and a new trading interface too. Oh, and we also have an update on margin trading. Exciting times lie ahead!

Website Redesign
Yes, that’s right. We have spruced up our look. And our brand-new landing page is just the first phase in the website’s complete redesign. With new products and services on the way, the changes we have planned aren’t just cosmetic – they reflect what’s to come for the next stage in our continued development. Our spring cleaning efforts also include the creation of a new logo, which we think looks particularly dapper! 

New Trading Interface
Just to keep you up to speed, we are also preparing a completely new trading interface, which will be faster, simpler and easier to use. Stay tuned for more news on this! 

Litecoin Launch and Ethereum
Having already set solid foundations for Bitstamp’s long-term future, it is now time to press ahead with the addition of further trading pairs and services. And the successful introduction of XRP trading on our exchange confirms the wisdom in our prudent and careful approach. Litecoin has now emerged as the next candidate, with LTC/BTC, LTC/EUR and LTC/USD trading pairs to be launched in early June 2017. As you would expect, the news that SegWit is likely to be activated for Litecoin was one of the key factors in our decision. We are also encouraged by Ethereum’s (ETH) potential, which will be made available shortly after, and we will continue to consider other digital currencies for inclusion on an ongoing basis. 

Margin Trading
We are also happy to announce that we are now testing our margin trading service, which is in its closed BETA phase. Currently open to a handful of our customers, we will be gradually opening up access to everyone in the months ahead. Watch this space for updates!

Bitstamp CEO, Nejc Kodrič, had the following to say about the announcement: “Things are changing rapidly and we now have the fundamentals in place to give our traders all the services they’re used to, but in a safe and secure environment. Now is the right time to expand and continue giving our customers what they want.” 

If you have any questions about our LTC and ETH launches, the website redesign, our new trading interface or our margin trading plans, please contact press@bitstamp.net.
