Popular crypto trading platforms Kraken and Gemini have just announced support for Filecoin (FIL) trading.
Gemini, the crypto exchange owned by the Winklevoss twins, yesterday reported that the platform is starting today to accept deposits and withdrawals for FIL once the launch of the mainnet takes place. As for trading, it will be activated shortly thereafter. It should be noted FIL will also be available in the custody service of the exchange.
Regarding Kraken, the exchange has reported it will allow the crypto trading in the following pairs: FIL/USD, FIL/EUR, FIL/BTC and FIL/ETH.
The fact that both platforms have decided to include the altcoin before the launch of its mainnet is curious, since, in general, crypto exchanges usually support new currencies once their mainnet is live.
Filecoin, which has been developed by Protocol Labs, is a decentralized storage network whose objective is to allow users to buy and sell unused storage on the network using FIL.
