Three of the largest crypto exchange in the industry will now be offering further support for a number of coins. Through a series of Twitter posts, crypto exchanges Bittrex, KuCoin, HitBTC has revealed the additional trading pairs.
The crypto exchanges have enabled a variety of trading pairs for leading digital currencies. The three will also enable additional USD pairs and support for Decred (DCR) and EOS.
Bittrex, the altcoin exchange-turned fiat currency gateway platform, has announced that it will open support trades between the US dollar and Tron (TRX), as well as Litecoin (LTC). The support means that users will no longer have to convert their TRX and LTC to Bitcoin to be able to trade in USD.

We’re rolling out more USD pairs. On Sep 17 we’re launching US dollar (USD) markets for TRON (TRX) and Litecoin (LTC).

Altcoin users have long been calling for more trading pairs. The move of the three crypto exchanges is expected to lessen the role of Bitcoin in the crypto buying and selling process. Users believe that Bitcoin’s dominance may be attributed to the fact that most exchanges only offer trading pairs against it.
