Gatecoin is a bitcoin and ethereum token exchange based in Hong Kong. It was founded in 2013 and has been influential in the crypto community since then. It was the first exchange in the world to list ethereum's token currency ether (ETH) in 2015, and then the first exchange to list ERC20 standard tokens.
Gatecoin has been vital to the development of decentralized applications on the blockchain and can be viewed as an authority on the most exciting innovations happening in the space.
On December 13 2017, Gatecoin listed the Blockmason Credit Protocol Token (BCPT) on its exchange. Gatecoin will support the purchase of BCPT with BTC and ETH.
BCPT enables owners to participate in the Credit Protocol, a system whereby debts and credits are secured and tracked on the Ethereum blockchain. With the purpose of democratizing the allocation of credit through permanently recorded debts and obligations, the Credit Protocol has a vast potential scope, and could be applied to many forms of debt tracking.
Blockmason is currently working on releasing its first app Lndr developed on top of the Credit Protocol, that will track debts and credits between friends and family. The team also advises other developers and owners of BCPT (which acts as a use license for the credit protocol) towards building their own consumer and commercial-driven applications on top of the Credit Protocol.
Blockmason is especially pleased to partner with Gatecoin - an exchange that is so dedicated to the evolution of blockchain technology and decentralized applications.
