BTC Markets has added the cryptocurrency Polkadot (DOT) to its platform tradeable  from today (7 December 2022). 

Polkadot is a decentralised blockchain that sets out to establish an ecosystem of cryptocurrencies by incentivising a global chain of computers to operate a blockchain. Polkadot’s native coin (DOT) was initially conceived in 2016.  

The DOT token became available in the summer of 2020 and was founded by Gavin Woods, a co-founder of Ethereum. 

The Australian owned and operated BTC Markets has over 320,000 Australian traders, and more than $23 billion traded on the BTC Markets platform.
