Forex ECN Broker, Dukascopy, introduced its own cryptocurrency to the market. About such plans we have already informed you in November last year. Now, after accepting the issue by the Finnish supervision of FINMA, the plans have become a fact. Thus, Dukascoin, because this is the name of the coin, is the first cryptocurrency released in history by an adjustable Swiss bank.

Dukascoin owners can sell them or buy more on the market. They can also withdraw Dukascoins from the bank to their external blockchain portfolios. People who decide to store them in the Bank will be able to receive Deposit Award from this title. Its height will depend on the total amount of coins held in accordance with the table below. The more cryptocurrencies of the broker we have, the more we will get them "Extra".

The Bank may extend or withhold the monetary incentive reward program at any time, which it may consider to be reasonable, without affecting the previously accumulated deposits. The cash deposit reward will be paid in Dukascoins. Additional terms will be announced at a later date.


It is worth recalling that deposits at Dukascopy Bank are covered by the Swiss guarantee fund in 100% up to the amount 100 000 CHF. The Bank will regularly organize independent audits to verify the correctness of Dukascoins releases. These inspection visits will ensure compliance of the number of open MCA accounts and the number of Dukascoins issued for this period in accordance with the Airdrop ICO concept.

The new Duskacoin tokens will use the proven ERC20 protocol, an Ethereum-based solution that is most often used by companies creating their own virtual coins, without developing and implementing their own technology.

Detailed information on the ICO can be found on the dedicated page as well as in the document Dukascoin Whitepaper (download PDF).
