On November 1, 2018, the Canadian cryptocurrency exchange CoinField, which uses XRP as the base currency, announced that it had entered into operation with 20 currency pairs against the XRP.
CoinField, based in Vancouver and founded in December 2017, calls itself “the best cryptocurrency exchange platform in Canada with the largest portfolio of currencies available in that country.” First, the company stated that it was exploring the idea of using XRP as the base currency on September 22.
However, it was not until November 1 that CoinField tweeted that its trading platform had begun to operate, and that it was available in 61 countries.
According to the CoinField press release, CoinField offers 28 currency pairs in six fiat currencies: US dollar (USD), Canadian dollar (CAD), Euro (EUR), Pound Sterling (GBP) and Japanese yen (JPY) and United Arab Emirates Dirham (AED).
However, there are, in fact, 29 trading pairs. In addition, the company mentioned that CoinField’s updated match engine is “capable of performing up to 75,000 transactions per second, or up to 1.5 million API calls per second.”
CoinField commissions start at 0.05% (maker´s fee).
The market maker “creates” the market as it provides liquidity, while the taker takes liquidity out of the market. If the highest selling price and the lowest buying price is ok for the trader and agrees to trade, he become a market taker.
- USD / XRP: 0.05% commission for the market maker; 0.14% commision fee for the taker
- BTC / XRP: 0.05% commission for the market maker; 0.14% commision fee for the taker
- ETH / XRP: 0.09% commission for the market maker; 0.15% commision fee for the taker
Another remarkable thing about CoinField is that it claims to be “the first exchange of cryptocurrencies in Canada that offers a complete API system to all traders for use in trading strategies or applications or innovative trading robots”.
