JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – iCE3X cryptocurrency exchange has introduced the ability for South Africans to practice buying and selling cryptocurrency in a simulation on their local exchange. The trading game will go live on iCE3X’s 6th birthday – this Friday, 18th October 2019. The trading pairs for the game are called BULL and BEAR. Free tokens can be redeemed using a voucher and trading between the pairs can start immediately, without any real money changing hands. 

iCE3X will initially offer access to the game to all registered users starting on its 6th birthday. New users simply need to register with an email or cell phone number. 

“We are excited to launch this game – that demonstrates how to trade – on our exchange,” said Gareth Grobler, iCE3X’s founder and CEO. “This is a first for South Africans and opens the doors for novice traders and investors wanting to learn how to buy and sell a “fantasy” trading pair. There is literally nothing to lose.” 

iCE3X has constantly innovated in the crypto-asset marketplace and has a reward program (called an affiliate program) that allows customers to be rewarded in cryptocurrency and South African Rands for inviting other investors or traders onto the platform. iCE3X also provides instant gaming experiences using the latest bitcoin-related technology – the Lightning Network. 

Eugéne Etsebeth, the iCE3X COO said: “We are gamifying many of the features on our platform, but through educating our users first, we hope they can take full advantage of a range of new FIAT deposit and withdrawal options we are rolling out” 

The company’s objective is to offer clients the best service to buy and sell (trade) cryptocurrencies and fiat pairs on a trusted exchange by integrating with numerous business partners including a cryptocurrency exchange platform provider, financial institutions, merchant services, wallets, custodial services, insurance and scratch cards in order to build an ecosystem around iCE3X’s exchange platform.
