Silk Road marketplace: Silk Road is now listed on Coinmarketcap
Posted On July 2, 2021
Coinmarkett says it has added Silk Road to its CoinMarketcap listing of Bitcoin exchanges.
Silk Road, a marketplace for Bitcoin trading, was first launched in 2014 and was bought by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar in July 2018.
The site is now available for trading in the United States and the rest of the world.
The listing includes listings for exchanges in the US, Hong Kong, Singapore, Singapore and New Zealand.
The listings will remain live until May 31.
CoinMarkett has also listed two other cryptocurrency exchange platforms, Bitfinex and Bittrex.
Silkroad and CoinMarket.to will also continue to operate.
Coinmarket is one of the largest cryptocurrency trading platforms in the world, listing more than $1.5 trillion worth of cryptocurrency.
SilkRoad is one such exchange.
Silk road was started in 2014 by Omidymos team, which included Peter Smith, a co-founder of PayPal.
The marketplace was shut down in 2018 after PayPal suspended the Silk Road platform.
Silk Roads founder Omidys team was acquired by O’Reilly Media, a media company with deep ties to Omidyn and his father.
The company has made major investments in cryptocurrencies, including a stake in the cryptocurrency Bitfiney.
The Bitcoin Foundation and the Bitcoin Foundation Blockchain Initiative, which manages Bitcoin’s blockchain, were also founded by Omalys.
The Omalies have also given the Silkroad team $1 million to support the development of the platform.
