Dear KuCoin Users,

We are pleased to announce the completion of our Platform 2.0 upgrade. The upgrade was a technically advanced process andwe sincerely apologize for the services suspended at the start. We are very grateful for your patience and are pleased to share that we have now fully launched the new platform.

Since the 2.0 upgrade process lasted around 14 hours, to avoid the impact of market fluctuations, trading services will open at 11:30 PM (UTC+8) today. Deposit is now open and withdrawal will resume at 09:00 AM, Feb 19, 2019 (UTC+8).

We are excited about what the end result means for our users:

KuCoin's APIs are designed to offer an easy and efficient way to develop a secure and programmatic trading strategy. LEVEL 2 and LEVEL 3 data have also been added.

Various Order Types

KuCoin now offers users a suite of order types to give traders the tools they need for every scenario. This includes Limit, Stop, Market, Post Only and Iceberg etc.

Reliable Security Solutions

Multiple security mechanisms to protect users’ information and funds are our first priority. With the update, KuCoin now supports SMS authentication, a device trust system and protective walls to reinforce user information and assets.
