Don’t get too hung up on HitBTC, it is not a good exchange and their users are all over social media highlighting being locked out of accounts amongst other things. I personally dont care if we do/do not get listed on HitBTC.
Electroneum have clearly held off hitting the big exchanges in what i can only call a gamble. I think they made the wrong choice of leaving it too long being listed on only Cryptopia (at that time)
On the other hand however, you don’t want to be listed on Binance right now. Binance are charging STUPID amounts to be listed $3-$4 Million Dollars. While Binance willl cause a price pump of perhaps a few hundred percent at best, would you prefer a 300% pump when ETN is at $0.005c or a 300% pump when ETN is at $0.25?
Now if you are up to date with Exchanges such as Binance, you will know that they make up their price for listing based on their knowledge of the Coin/Token. For example they will charge ETN the Full amount of a few million Dollars because they… and i quote “do not like big ICO’s” So basically if a coin like ETN has an ICO of $40m they want literally 10% of your entire Investment amount from your ICO Investors. I absolutely hate them for this! This is not what Crypto-Currency is about! They are the school bully’s and to enter their playground you must pay!
IMO Richard would be a fool to pay such fees, $3-4m is enough to keep Electroneum LTD going for years, why should they spend this amount of money just to Increase the price of ETN from $0.005 to $0.015.
Timing is key, and now is not the time.
Let them bring out their product, then the exchanges must adopt us, then the value will go up based on project value and not artificial pumps caused by Exchanges alone.
