Bitfinex Among First Exchanges to List TAIKO, Native Token of Taiko

ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands3rd June, 2024 – Bitfinex (, a premier digital asset trading platform, announced today that it will be one of the first exchanges to list TAIKO, the native token of Taiko, an Ethereum-based layer-2 network focused on scalability.

First launched in 2022, Taiko is an Ethereum-equivalent ZK-Rollup, meaning it uses Zero-Knowledge Rollup technology to scale Ethereum by processing multiple transactions in batches, reducing costs and increasing speed. As a Layer 2 solution, Taiko operates on top of the Ethereum mainchain, providing enhanced scalability while keeping the decentralised, permissionless, and secure nature of Ethereum. Taiko states on its website that to date, they have executed six testnets involving over 1.1 million unique wallets, more than 30,000 proposers, and more than 14,000 approvers.

As the native token on Taiko, TAIKO offers holders several functions, including governance voting rights, underpinning Taiko’s rollup solutions, and earning yield for proposers and approvers.

“We are thrilled to add TAIKO to our extensive range of listed tokens,” said Henry Child, Head of Tokens at Bitfinex. “At Bitfinex, we are proud to support developers who prioritise decentralisation and scalability, as these principles are essential to the future of web3.”

Deposits for TAIKO are expected to open at approximately 10:00 AM UTC on June 4th, 2024, subject to network conditions. Trading is planned to commence at approximately 1:00 PM UTC on June 05, 2024, contingent upon liquidity requirements being met. TAIKO will be tradable against US Dollars (TAIKO/USD) and Tether tokens (TAIKO/USDt).
