This is the latest addition to a suite of products Bitcoin.com provides beyond their news service. The company has also developed a crypto casino, a wallet, and a P2P bitcoin cash exchange, aimed at furthering the utility of the forked alternative to bitcoin.

“While our company thinks the bitcoin cash network will be adopted by the masses worldwide, we also think it’s important to promote free markets and choice,” the company said in a statement.

Expected to launch in early September, the exchange will list many of the largest capitalized coins including bitcoin, ethereum, and litecoin. Additionally, it plans to offer around 50 trading pairs, as well as Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP) tokens tied to the BCH blockchain.

Former CEO and proponent of bitcoin cash Roger Ver said:

“We’re on the cusp of something very exciting with SLP tokens — It’s the beginning of a world where we can tokenize anything and, as people realize the potential this holds, they’re going to start demanding a place to trade their tokens.”

Ver recently stepped down as CEO of Bitcoin.com.
