We are excited to announce the imminent launch of EOS, our 9th listed cryptocurrency. EOS is a blockchain technology that enables the development and hosting of decentralised applications (DApps). The EOS platform is ultimately designed to ensure quick deployment of DApps, to scale to millions of transactions per second, and to eliminate user fees. The company that created the EOS platform is led by Dan Larimer and Brendan Blumer, both are notable veterans in the crypto and tech world. EOS is consistently in the top 5 cryptocurrencies by market capitalisation.

We will be releasing this with an introductory brokerage fee of 0.1% (for EOS only), this will last for two weeks so ensure you get your trades in early!


Timing:

We will be performing system maintenance and upgrades on Sunday 24th March at 2pm (AEDT). We expect this to last approximately 4 hours and during this time you will not be able to access your Independent Reserve account. Once this completes, deposits and withdrawals will be enabled for EOS. Trading will be enabled at approximately 11am on Tuesday 26th March.

Please be aware that there will likely be low liquidity for the first week or two as the market builds. We recommend that customers place limit orders rather than market orders until local volatility settles down.
