Exton Firm WPCS
Last year, Exton made an effort to join the digital currency ecosystem. Known for their bitcoin trading platform, Exton recently announced its expansion to an online-based BTX Trader application.
The app allows users to refer to data to trade for bitcoins. Both the downloadable and desktop version parallel each other in functionality.
Users are able to buy and sell exchanges with BTX Trader, but all transactions are handled by the exchanges. Currently, the operation does not charge any fees for usage, but that could change in time as the company evolves.
WPCS interim CEO Sebastian Giordano wrote in his release:
“Launching the Web version of our BTX trading platform is yet another milestone for our company. We have refined our technology during the beta downloadable application phase of our launch and are now ready to offer our users a more enhanced trading experience on the Web. We are pleased to now offer the beta via Mac and Linux operating systems.”
To be able to assist bitcoin traders, it marks a new venture and outreach by the firm. WPCS was originally a design-and-build focused engineering company. They would deploy wireless networks in design, technology, construction and maintenance.
The company’s decision to move into the digital currency realm is still unclear, but it is safe to say that it has faith in the future of digital coins.
The company was founded in 2002 by Andrew Hidalgo. Hidalgo stepped down from the company back in July 2013.
WPCS says its BTX Trader app has its advantages when compared to other bitcoin exchanges. The website states:
“BTX Trader consolidates order history, executions, market data, positions and charts in a single work space. Our trade window (montage) enables you to see the entire order book and place trades with just a few clicks. In addition, BTX Trader has order types not available by exchanges, such as a stop limit orders.”
The company looks to continue adding featured to include more market data access. BTX Trader’s chief technology officer, Divya Thakur, wrote:
“Progress with the development of our trading platform remains on schedule.”
