The First of What the Future Holds

The partnership between two crypto-exchange heavyweights could foreshadow similar future moves by other prominent exchanges. One needs to just observe the rapid growth of DeFi in the last few months of June, July and August, to fathom the rapid growth of the crypto-industry and the need to evolve with the times. Only a few days ago, the crypto exchange of Kraken recieved a bank charter in the US: the first for any digital asset company.

Furthermore, governments across the world are finally warming up to digital assets and are preparing some form of regulation in their jurisdictions. Such a partnership between KuCoin and Poloniex would benefit both parties in the sense that they can negotiate and/or implement regulatory recommendations jointly, thus propelling the industry forward.
