ziftrCOINs to Be Listed on Cryptsy and Melotic Cryptocurrency Exchanges

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2015) - New Hampshire-based cryptocurrency startup ziftrCOIN (https://www.ziftrcoin.com/) is excited to announce that ziftrCOINs will be listed on popular cryptocurrency exchanges Cryptsy and Melotic in 2015 when the coins are released. Cryptsy will also work with ziftrCOIN to integrate with ziftrPAY, Ziftr's secure API that enables retailers to accept all types of cryptocurrency in addition to credit card payments.

ziftrCOIN, the gateway coin to mainstream cryptocurrency adoption, was designed to onboard the next 10 million cryptocurrency users. Ziftr, the company behind ziftrCOIN, has developed a suite of tools and applications, including ziftrPAY, which will integrate with Bitcoin, ziftrCOIN and other altcoins to make cryptocurrency highly accessible and easily adoptable for both consumers and retailers.

"We're honored that Cryptsy and Melotic have agreed to list ziftrCOINs on their exchanges," said Bob Wilkins, CEO of Ziftr and ziftrCOIN. "We believe that ziftrCOIN is the gateway coin to mainstream cryptocurrency adoption, so it will be great to see it listed alongside popular altcoins like Litecoin and Dogecoin."

Cryptsy is a United States-based cryptocurrency exchange that currently has over 270,000 registered users from all over the world with a volume of over 300,000 trades per day. Cryptsy's mission is to provide a safe, simple, and efficient environment for users to trade crypto-currencies with each other.

"The partnership with ziftrPAY is an exciting, new foray into a market that we have been wanting to get into for a while," said Paul Vernon, CEO of Cryptsy. "Our expertise in crypto coupled with Ziftr's business expertise makes for an exciting future."

Melotic is a Hong Kong-based exchange that curates a selection of digital assets and works with issuers and companies to incorporate digital assets into their businesses. Melotic offers low fees, a clean interface, easy-to-use API and strong security, as well as tools for digital asset businesses. There are currently nine strategically selected coins listed on Melotic, including Litecoin, Dogecoin, Ripple and Stellar.

"We're incredibly excited to work with Ziftr and add ziftrCOIN to our platform," said Jack Wang, CEO of Melotic. "Not only have Bob and his team developed a unique business model that has tremendous potential to drive cryptocurrency adoption, they've invented an innovative new coin in the process."

ziftrCOIN launched the ziftrCOIN presale on Dec. 9, giving interested parties the opportunity to purchase ziftrCOINs at a low rate and earn rewards ranging from a limited-edition cold storage coin to a ziftrCOIN mining rig. Proceeds from the ziftrCOIN presale will fund Ziftr's goal of bringing cryptocurrency to the mainstream, and all purchased ziftrCOINs will become available for use in February 2015. In late 2015, Ziftr will give away 300 million ziftrCOINs (a maximum of 100 ziftrCOINs to each individual) so that everyday consumers can begin familiarizing themselves with cryptocurrency. Each ziftrCOIN will have a minimum redemption value of $1 when used within Ziftr's retailer network, functioning similarly to a coupon.
