How do I submit a token to Bittrex for listing?

To help drive innovation in the blockchain industry, Bittrex is committed to supporting both new and established blockchains. Bittrex seeks to provide its users with an ever-growing selection of blockchain technologies and digital tokens.

As two of our senior executives wrote in a Wall Street Journal Op-ed:

"A digital currency exchange serves as a nerve center of the blockchain ecosystem, and trading platforms are fundamental to ensuring the security of the blockchain by, for example, making it extremely difficult to engage in certain types of cyber-attacks. Additionally, it allows for marketbased price discovery so that the marketplace can determine the value for your digital asset; it also fosters innovation… The potential uses are limited only by the imagination of the innovators."

There are two main reviews that Bittrex completes before a token may be listed on the Exchange:

  1. Preliminary Review: This is an initial review to determine whether a token that seeks to be listed on the Bittrex Exchange should proceed through the full listing process. A Bittrex employee will notify you if your token has been selected to undergo the Full Listing Review.

  2. Full Listing Review: This is a more in-depth review of the token. Bittrex requests certain documentation through this process, including an executed Non-Disclosure Agreement and Listing Agreement. A committee comprised of Bittrex employees will determine if the token meets the Exchange’s robust criteria, and whether it will be listed on the Exchange. As part of this review, Bittrex may consult with outside advisors.

To start the preliminary review, please submit the required information through Bittrex Support using the following link:

Submit Coin to Bittrex for Listing Consideration

As part of the full listing review, a token must successfully complete a compliance review before it can be listed on the Exchange. Our compliance review typically requires the applicant to provide a legal memorandum or opinion from its U.S.-qualified outside counsel or an acceptable substitute. The memo or opinion should present the factual and legal basis for its conclusion that (a) the Candidate Token is not a security under applicable securities laws, and (b) that trades of the Candidate Tokens would not be subject to regulation under any applicable laws applicable to trading of commodities.

In addition to the compliance review, Bittrex reviews several items when determining whether to list a token, including but not limited to whether it is an innovative and/or new Blockchain or has an innovative use case or application. As part of its review, Bittrex takes into consideration a number of factors including but not limited to:

  • New blockchain features
  • Significant improvement over existing blockchain
  • Interesting, innovative, or unique application
  • Usefulness of use cases
  • Technological experience and reputation of token applicant and team
  • Market interest

Bittrex does not currently charge a fee for listing a token on our Exchange. We believe in promoting the blockchain industry, and we have spent, and will continue to invest, significant resources to review tokens for listing on our Exchange.

Please do not believe any consultant, advisor, or individual that tells you that they can get your token listed on the Bittrex Exchange for a fee. The decision to list a token is made by a committee of Bittrex employees after a rigorous review.

Does making it to the full listing review process guarantee that my token will be listed on Bittrex?
No. Bittrex retains full discretion regarding which tokens to list on its exchange. A token must satisfactorily complete the full review before being listed. Merely going through the full listing review process does not guarantee that your token will be listed on Bittrex.
If my token is not accepted for listing on Bittrex, can I resubmit after making changes?
Yes. Generally, you should wait at least 3 months before resubmitting the token to Bittrex.
Will you notify me if my token is NOT chosen for full listing review or provide an explanation for why my token will not be considered for full listing review?
We will notify you if your token does not pass the preliminary review and/or full listing review. Given the number of tokens that we review every week, we will most likely be unable to provide an explanation for our decision not to list your token on the exchange.
