Navigating the hundreds of global crypto exchanges can be difficult, especially when popular exchanges get thousands of requests daily to have tokens listed. Of course, every exchange has its own requirements to get listed, and its best to do some due diligence on how to present your ICO to increase the chances of getting listed on an exchange. Even if your token is launched on a decentralized exchange, it always helps to be listed on more exchanges. This adds more liquidity for your token and confers its legitimacy among the crypto community.

Basic Exchange Expectations

Many popular exchanges claim that they don’t have definitive sets of criteria as each project is unique. However, having a strong community that can support your unique and innovative project is essential to ensure that their users would be interested in buying an selling your token. Having an engaged social media following is a great way to show that the community is excited about your project.

In other cases, exchanges require a fee to have your token be listed, however it is important to do your own due diligence regarding the legitimacy of the exchange itself. Bigger and better-reviewed exchanges are almost certain to be worth getting listed on, but they also have a more stringent process. Bittrex, for example, states that their team limits themselves to only a handful of new coin releases per week.

Basic expectations include a description of your coin, a trading symbol, a coin logo, a launch date, a Github link, and popular crypto social media channels.
