AltMarket, the peer-to-peer trading and fundraising platform with products and features for the entertainment industry, today announced the launch of its cryptocurrency trading platform. Concurrent with this launch is the opening of the presale for the O.D.B. Coin, an officially-licensed cryptocurrency from the Estate of Ol’ Dirty Bastard of Wu-Tang Clan. The exchange and information about the presale are located on the company’s site here.
The AltMarket exchange will allow users to buy and sell popular and highly-liquid cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and TAO as well as engage in forex trading. Over time, AltMarket will consider additional cryptocurrencies and investment vehicles as the market demands and as regulation evolves.
The O.D.B. Coin is the first of many planned Initial Artist Offerings (IAOs) on the AltMarket platform. These IAOs will provide musical artists with public patronage and, at the same time, give their fans unique access to shows, tours and exclusive merchandise from Purple Haze Properties and Select A Head.
“With the AltMarket exchange, we’ve designed a platform that isn’t just based on leading-edge technology, but it’s designed to be an institution that respects the investments of our clients,” said Bryce Weiner, CEO of AltMarket. “To that end, we’ve partnered with some of the most trusted names in the crypto and entertainment fields to provide consumers a safe platform to connect with cryptocurrencies as well as their favorite artists.”
