Bcnex - ICO Review

Bcnex: Faster & More Secure Crypto Exchange

Bcnex is intent on providing a complex solution to four overarching issues pertaining to the dominating majority of crypto and digital asset exchanges, precisely unsophisticated and incompetently developed technical architecture; lax security of traders’ assets and operations; insufficient market liquidity which often results in slippages, a real scourge of crypto exchanges that discourages traders, especially those that operate with high volumes, for using a particular platform. Unsatisfactory customer support should also be added to the mix since it is one of the decisive factors that form the reputation of a given crypto exchange.

A robust system

Bcnex was initially developed on the basis of Ethereum blockchain, but later has been redeployed on CryptoNote, a piece of technology that is known primarily for its ring signature feature, which provides for untraceable payments, and the capability of creating numerous one-time public key to ensure the non-traceability of transactions. 

The Bcnex team, the core of which can boast vast professional experience in Forex market trading and development of trading systems in the corresponding field, has been nurturing the concept of the blockchain-enabled real-time data application system since 2009 when they had first adapted it to penny auctions.

Over the course of time, this idea evolved into the Bcnex’s own order matching system (BCOMS) capable of handling as much as 2 million orders in a second, even at low latency, thus giving the platform a potential to become the swiftest of all existing exchanges.

Another important characteristic of BCNex is its scalability and stability which is achieved through the use of the unique architecture of microservices: API, trading, and managerial, where each service possesses its own database. 


The functional integrity of the exchange is ensured by the use of advanced firewalls, mechanisms for withstanding the DoS attacks, and different types of user alerts. But the thing of particular interest in Bcnex’s wallet solution that is comprised of a multitude of cold wallets with hardware modules that will ensure the safekeeping of 98% of digital funds even in the event of a major security breach.  

Liquidity and customer service

The Bcnex team assures that they would be capable of providing substantial liquidity to the exchange, even at the initial stages of its launch, thanks mostly to the large pool of investors recruited from the Forex market.

They promise multilingual support, though the choice of languages will be limited at first to English, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

BCNX token and other supported currencies

BCNX is a utility token compliant with the ERC-223, a standard that has several advantages over ERC-20, such as the energy efficiency and the capability for rejecting non-supported tokens. These tokens can be traded against other cryptocurrencies and used to pay transaction, listing, and other fees.

As for the fees, the holders of BCNX will be entitled to substantial discounts - 75% in the first year to incentivize new users, which will gradually decrease.

Speaking of other supported currencies, Bcnex will have a rather limited list at the initial stages of its operations: only BTC, ETH, and USDT. Although, it should be extended substantially over the course of time.

I have perused the review, as well as the whitepaper, and got to like the product and the concept that Bcnex has to offer, but there are still a few issues that concern me. First of all, the team claims that it has vast experience in Forex trading and related software development, but I have hardly seen any proof of that when reading their profiles. Secondly, I am a bit confused about their fee structure. From the user’s point of view, having a 75% discount on trading operations for the first year is awesome, but that’s not going to do any good for the project’s initial capital flow. How Bcnex plan on surviving for the first couple of years, when their user base would be small? That’s a big turn off for me with regard to investing in Bcnex.

The product that Bcnex has to offer is definitely worth trying, especially if they promise to eliminate the problem of slippage. I can’t begin to tell you, how many of my stop-losses have been affected by this issue. And it happened on all exchanges I dealt with over the years. Their promise of speed and scalability seems to be another perk, but I am a bit concerned about the fees. It’s good to have such a hefty discount, but they didn’t specify their trading fees, which leaves me wondering, whether it is worth trying Bcnex.
