BUIP207: Tier-1 Exchange Listing for Nexa

BUIP207 Tier-1 Exchange Listing for Nexa
5 May 2024

This BUIP is requesting Bitcoin Unlimited (BU) membership approval for operational funds to list Nexa on a Tier-1 cryptocurrency exchange. For clarity in terminology here, Tier-1 will be one of the world’s top 10 crypto exchanges when measured by a combination of the number of registered users, visits count and trading volume. A Tier-1 exchange should have in the region of 20 million or more registered users.

The world cryptocurrency market has changed a lot since alt-coins were launched en-masse from 2013 onward. At that time a quality coin could rise through the rankings via organic usage and adoption. This is no longer the case. Currently, there are 14,015 coins listed on coingecko.com , vying for attention. A new coin could be released today with the best utility and functionality, but it will languish low in the rankings from lack of attention. Conversely, if Bitcoin was launched today, no one would look at it and it would also languish in the rankings.

Any marketing strategy can be effective in raising awareness of a coin, however, the most effective marekting of all is to target the audience which are users and investors registered on various crypto exchanges: i.e. exchange users.

Nexa’s second anniversary of launch occurs in June. By this time the nexa.org website revamp should be completed. Also, many functional enhancements are already implemented in the full node, so, Nexa will be more than ready to handle the attention from a Tier-1 listing.

Such an exchange listing will cement the momentum from the parallel marketing strategy in place and prepare the ground for publicity from the Australian Crypto Convention in November 2024. Ideally, these initiatives will attract some organic usage of tokens and NFTs, and also help drive Nexa on a rankings trajectory mirroring other successful coins, such as Kaspa.

Promotional activities, on a Tier-1 exchange, are not the normal strategy for most new listings. Paying for exchange promotion, such as website banner adverts to users, pinned messages, push notifications, social media announcements, airdrops and trading competitions is “next-level”. Nexa deserves a “next-level” chance to grab awareness and progress in the marketplace, long-term.


Maximum spend US$250k for Tier-1 listing fees and associated expenses plus
Maximum spend US$250k for Tier-1 concurrent Nexa promotional activities

We ask prospective members to provide a public key which they will use for voting. Bitcoin Unlimited is a participatory organization where people devote a small amount of time, every couple of months to guide the direction of the software and org itself.

We use VotePeer for our voting system.
