With the mission to digitize and create better transaction networks for the world, whether it is for currencies, assets, or anything of value, Bitkub is proud to present its Digital Asset Framework.
The Framework is designed to set the standards for how we evaluate digital assets to be part of our listing and make decisions to keep our customers' best interests in mind. We do not, in any way, endorse assets and we reserve the absolute right to list, not to list, and de-list any asset for trading regardless of how it met the standards specified in this framework. This framework is subject to changes or improvements over time.
There are 3 main criterias we evaluate before approving the listing:
(1) A-Must Criteria
(2) Technical and Operational Feasibility
(3) Committee Scoring
On top of that, after listing, we still conduct an evaluation periodically.
If you are interested in listing your coins/tokens, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
