14 Aug Bitfinex Among First to List Highly Anticipated SEI Token
ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands – August 14, 2023 – Bitfinex (www.bitfinex.com/), a state-of-the-art digital token trading platform, announced today that it will list SEI, the native token of the Sei Network, an open-source layer-1 blockchain . This will make Bitfinex one of the first exchanges to list the highly-anticipated token.
Launched in 2022, the Sei Network offers infrastructure for trading apps of different kinds, including NFT marketplaces, gaming decentralized exchanges (DEXs), and DeFi DEXs. While many layer-1 blockchains are general networks that are built to allow developers to craft several types of apps, Sei is designed especially for trades.
The network’s unique architecture includes its Twin-Turbo Consensus mechanism, which, according to the company, enables the network to process up to 22,000 orders per second and a transactional finality of 600 milliseconds, making it one of the fastest blockchains to date. Combined with the order-matching engine that’s integrated into its system, Sei enables efficient scaling for trading apps, ensuring seamless and uninterrupted trading experiences across different exchanges.
SEI, the network’s highly-anticipated native token, comes to Bitfinex as a utility token that enables users to pay network fees and trading fees for exchanges on the blockchain. Additionally, holders of the SEI token will be able to participate in any future governance of the protocol.
“The Sei Network’s impressive speed and operability built specifically for trading bodes well for the future of decentralized finance,” said Henry Child, Head of Tokens at Bitfinex. “We are thrilled to add SEI to our exchange’s diverse and broad list of available tokens.”
Made up of a team of former employees from Goldman Sachs, Google, Robinhood, Nvidia, and Databricks, the company made news in April of this year by announcing they had raised $30 million in its two rounds of fundraising, bringing the company’s valuation to $800 million. Investors include Jump, Distributed Global, Multicoin, Asymmetric, Flow Traders, Hypersphere and Bixin Ventures.
Bitfinex will open deposits for SEI on August 15 at approximately 10:00am UTC. Trading of SEI will commence on August 15 at approximately 12:00pm UTC, in trading pairs against the US Dollar (USD) and Tether tokens (USDt).
