Bithumb is a cryptocurrency exchange founded in South Korea in 2013 and headquartered in Seoul. The exchange offers arbitrage options, allowing customers to profit from the price difference for cryptocurrencies between different exchanges and markets. In June 2018, Bithumb suffered a hack that resulted in the loss of around $32 million worth of cryptocurrency. Jeon Soo-yong is the current CEO of Bithumb. Near the end of last year, the exchange announced a partnership with SeriesOne to launch a cryptocurrency trading platform in the US which is expected to debut in Q3 2019.
Bithumb Pro is a seperate exchange from Bithumb. New users will be able to use Bithumb Pro as an introduction to P2P trading, rather than the traditional exchange. Bithumb supports several major cryptocurrencies with recent additions including Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), and Zcash (ZEC). Monaco (MCO) was listed on Bithumb in April 2018. Other popular tokens include ICON (ICX) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
