Today it was announced that Bithumb, one of the biggest crypto exchanges in South Korea is adding ICON (ICX) to their trading platform. In their announcement, Bithumb also gave details on an ICON airdrop event for their users. This airdrop will occur on Friday the 6th of April.
Following this news, the price of ICON shot up over 28.7% in a matter of an hour. At the time of this writing, ICON is up 53.91% in the last 24 hours according to Coinmarketcap.
This news could indicate great times ahead for ICON, as South Korea’s cryptocurrency trading is starting to thrive once again. Just recently it was announced that South Korea is going to unban ICOs.
