With the introduction of the KDA token in Bittrex Global, Kadena is gaining in importance. Bittrex is one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges with an average daily trading volume of approximately $ 37 million at press time.

However, KDA operations are not open to all users worldwide. Bittrex Global is not available in the United States or other sanctioned countries such as Egypt and Cambodia.

KDA debuts with a $ 13 million market cap

Kadena’s KAD token is the native cryptocurrency for Kadena’s hybrid blockchain platform. This platform is based on the traditional PoW consensus (proof of work). After Kadena started mining in November 2019, a total of 35 million KDA tokens have been issued. Will Martino, co-founder and CEO of Kadena, says that around 100 million KDA tokens will be mined next year. The price of the Kadena KDA token depends on supply and demand.

At press time, major cryptocurrency tracking websites like CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko are not fully displaying KDA token statistics and also provide insight into historical price changes since early June 2020. Martino said some “buggy integrations” could be causing the problem, noting that KDA’s market cap prior to Bittrex’s listing was $ 13 million.. He said:

“Only since its introduction in January has KDA been primarily OTC. Listed on Bittrex Global is the first for KDA. Some of the so-called dubious exchanges, like Hotbit, have made rather flawed integrations that provide price data from which CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko come. “
