There are over 20 million global users of this platform, 700 tokens, 1200 trading pairs and a few altcoins. Johnny Lyu, CEO of KuCoin, states that the platform is undergoing several crypto cycles, yet it promises to build for the best no matter what.
Further, he also says that the platform is delighted to introduce its new partnership with the same vision and beliefs. The support from Susquehanna International Group will help solidify the platform’s role as a centralized exchange. Also, it will help expand the ecosystem to the decentralized Web3 world.
