Upbit, South Korea based cryptocurrency exchange has broken its partnership with Bittrex in reorganizing its Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Tether markets. According to the report, Upbit had previously had a shared order book arrangement with Bittrex orders being visible in the Upbit bid windows.
The crypto exchange announced the news in a notice revealing the reasons for changes into BTC, ETH and USDT markets. The changes include the introduction of market orders, limit orders, and stop-limit features, although no further details are revealed.
However, the notice also includes particularly mentions the order book sharing with Bittrex being discontinued. This was later edited to remove specific reference to Bittrex. “Discontinued order book sharing with Bittrex.”
“As a result [of the changes], you will no longer be able to see orders placed at Bittrex in the Upbit BTC, ETH and USDT markets.”
The updated notice has the heading, “Only Upbit member’s orders are displayed on the order book. After changes are applied, only orders place by Upbit users are displayed on BTC, ETH and USDT markets.”
