New fees, commissions and discounts

Dukascopy Bank is announcing that the new fee of 3 EUR for the first Dukascoin transaction will be applied to the newly opened MCA accounts. When the client initiates first outgoing transaction in Dukascoins (withdrawal, transfer to another MCA account holder or selling) the new fee will be once charged from the MCA account balance. The client will be able to sell Dukascoins even if the balance of the MCA account is not sufficient to pay that fee. In that case, the First Dukascoin transaction fee will be deducted from the amount of euro credited to the client’s account for the Dukascoins sold.

For those customers who will actively use the MCA account and, in particular, will order a Bank’s payment card (target audience of the MCA account service) Dukascopy Bank is planning to offer a discount for the ordering of the first payment card compensating the fee paid for the first Dukascoin transaction. Thus, the fee for the first Dukascoin transaction would not affect a target clientele of the bank.

Another newly introduced change in the fee schedule is the increase of a minimum commission for each Dukascoin sold by client from 0.02 EUR to 0.05 EUR.

The purpose of the above mentioned changes in the fee schedule of the MCA service is to reduce abusive activity of persons exclusively willing to benefit from MCA welcoming bonus and without intention to use the MCA service of the Bank.

Pending orders are available for experienced users only

After meticulous consideration of the 7 month trading practice on the internal Dukascoin marketplace, Dukascopy Bank has decided to introduce a minimum trading volume qualification for traders willing to place a bid and ask pending orders to buy and sell Dukascoins. This measure is introduced to protect inexperienced clients from the incorrect usage of trading capabilities of the marketplace. Minimum trading volume will guarantee necessary experience. New marketplace users will be able to buy and sell Dukascoins at the best available prices by market orders only. Experienced users should reach the trading volume of 250 Dukascoins to apply full range of orders. When the user will reach qualification minimum, pending orders will be unblocked automatically. Dukascopy Bank can change the above mentioned experience limit after further observation of the clients’ activity.

Clients hold more than 1 000 000 Dukascoins

Dukascopy Bank is pleased to announce that on October 2nd, 2019 a new milestone has been reached: more than 1 000 000 Dukascoins have been accumulated by clients on their MCA accounts. This milestone confirms the sustainability of the reward concept offered by Dukascopy Bank for MCA account opening and client’s interest towards the first cryptocurrency created by a Swiss bank.

We are happy to state that the growing number of MCA account holders raises the optimism of a bright future for an affordable Swiss retail banking service constantly evolving at the hands of Dukascopy Bank S.A. One of the latest improvements concerns the benefit of SWIFT deposit automation for MCA account clients. This means that whenever a client makes a bank transfer to a Dukascopy MCA account and certain criteria match, his/her funds will be available on the account without any manual intervention. This innovation dramatically increases the speed of client transactions and raises the client’s satisfaction to a new level.

Starting from the 21st referral, 2 DUK+ will be charged as commission from the remuneration of 5 DUK+ received by referrer. If the number of referrals is lower than 20, the commission will not be applied.

After intensive testing Dukascopy Bank is happy to announce that starting from this week blockchain operations (deposits and withdrawals) with DUK+ envisaged at MCA account internet banking applications (web and mobile) became automated in most cases and available 24/7.

Taking into consideration the growing number of Dukascoin holders willing to keep DUK+ on their external blockchain wallets, Dukascopy Bank was working hard to create fast and reliable way to satisfy client’s needs. Now the overall time of blockchain interactions in Dukascopy Bank’s MCA accounts infrastructure has been reduced from manual “next day” execution to few minutes (depends on current Ethereum blockchain network loading).

After careful research and diligent selection process, the bank is now glad to announce the first partnership with one of the most recognized and well-established Swiss crypto companies - Swiss Crypto Exchange (SCX). The bank has highly appreciated the professional team standing behind SCX managed by its CEO Dr. Francesco Adiliberti and its Executive Chairman Dr. Christian Katz and - two well-known and respected members of the Swiss financial industry. Dukascopy Bank is looking forward to fruitful and long-lasting cooperation with SCX in the crypto domain.

Starting from this week, global institutional and private investors will have the opportunity to transact in Dukascoins outside of Dukascopy Bank's environment, freely sending and receiving the bank's cryptocurrency in the blockchain. The bank would like to remind that anyone interested can follow all the latest updates related to Dukascoin on the dedicated web site www.dukascoin.com. This resource publishes all relevant information about the prospective business uses of the token inside or outside the bank.

The bank is equally happy to present an essential additional benefit that clients of Dukascopy will obtain from the partnership with Swiss Crypto Exchange.

In this convenient arrangement, clients will be able to keep their money in the safe custody of their Dukascopy bank accounts while buying or selling crypto via SCX (you can read SCX's press release here).

"Switzerland is our home market and is of strategical importance for us. Therefore, we have been particularly careful when selecting a partner exchange. I am certain that we have entrusted our first integration of Dukascoin to the partners who understand the financial and crypto markets very well. They are true professionals. Moreover, I am personally delighted to work closely to Dr. Christian Katz, who has been managing SIX exchange for years and who knows very well how a proper Swiss exchange should be organised." said Dr. Andre Duka, co-CEO of Dukascopy Bank.

Start of the Public Test and Dukascash family expansion

As it was announced, on the 3rd of July, 2019 Dukascopy Bank has started the Public Test phase of its Dukascash project (announcement). The positive reaction of the market to that announcement almost doubled the price of the Dukascoin.

During the Public Test, Dukascopy Bank declares its intention to check the industry's general interest towards stable coins backed by the Bank and invites the leading crypto industry actors to a dialogue regarding the project.

At the same time, the Bank will verify the effectiveness of the developed procedures related to Dukascash, its regular monitoring system and the potential ability to expand the project within the short time frame upon the request of potential partners. To do so, in the framework of the Public Test, the Bank is going to add to the list of tokens another five stable coins.

These new stable coins are CNY+, GBP+, JPY+, MXN+ and RUB+ pegged to Chinese Renminbi, Pound of Sterling, Japanese Yen, Mexican Peso and Russian Ruble, respectively. Such expansion of Dukascash tokens should prove the scalability of the project.

Creating the family of stable coin tokens supported by the Bank, freely convertible with the same cross rates as their base currencies is considered by the Bank as a general target of the project. In fact, the Bank may rapidly extend the list of Dukascash tokens family members up to 23 currencies, all of which are currently available as a base currency for clients' accounts. Further extension of the list will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The Bank reminds that during the period of the Public Test, which will continue until the official termination, the Bank does not take any obligation and does not guaranty the continuation of the project. In any case and independently on the results of Public Testing, possible future amendments to the White Paper and continuation or discontinuation of the project, the Bank takes an obligation to buy back all Dukascash tokens purchased by clients during the Public Test phase. See details in the Public Test disclaimer.

Dukascash White Paper and Public Testing announcement

Dukascopy Bank is publishing the White Paper of its new crypto project named Dukascash. With Dukascash the Bank presents to the crypto industry its vision of a stable crypto currency backed by a bank. The Bank offers a range of payment tokens (currency tokens) circulating in public blockchain. The circulation of the bank's token in public blockchain is the most important advantage in comparison to competitors' solutions. It is the first and only product of that type in the banking industry. The official website of the project is www.dukascash.com

Dukascash is the family of universal digital payment means denominated in different fiat base currencies. Dukascash is designed by the Bank as a basket of low volatility tokens. The exchange rates of these tokens against its base fiat currencies in the long-term perspective is supposed to seek parity with those currencies.

Dukascash will exist in the form of ERC-20 smart-contracts over Ethereum blockchain and represents tokens softly linked to EUR, USD and CHF. Tickers for the above mentioned tokens will be EUR+, USD+ and CHF+ respectively. The list of base currencies will be extended at later stages upon client's requests.

Before the official launch of the product, the Bank announces a public testing phase of the project. The bank invites all crypto industry professionals to participate in the public testing of Dukascash. During that phase the minimum size of a transaction is established at 1000 or more tokens. This measure is intended to protect retail clients from the risks associated with participation in the testing processes.

In any case and independently on the results of public testing, possible future amendments to the White Paper and continuation or discontinuation of the project, the Bank takes an obligation to buy back all Dukascash tokens purchased by clients during the public test phase.

During the public testing stage, the Dukascash White Paper does not create any obligation for the Bank to launch and maintain the products and/or services described in the White Paper. The public testing phase starts July 3rd, 2019. The termination of public testing will be announced separately. The Bank will apply its strict AML/KYC procedures to all operations with clients involving Dukascash.

Dukascash White Paper is available here.

For example, if the referrer has exactly 100 referrals successfully opened their MCA accounts in June then 500 DUK+ should be awarded for that activity (5 DUK+ for every referral). It means that at the beginning of July the referrer will get a private offer in his/her mobile application (Dukascoin Marketplace) to sell 500 DUK+ to the Bank at the fixed rate of 1 DUK+/EUR and get 500 EUR. The fixed price offered to referrers will not depend on the current market price of DUK+. If the referrer has already sold his/her DUK+ on the marketplace before the announced private offer he or she can buy appropriate amount of DUK+ on the marketplace and sell them to the Bank accepting the private offer. The offer will be limited by the amount of coins received by the referrer during previous month for his/her referral activity.

The referrers eligible for the special reward for a previous month will be identified in the course of the first business day of the next month by counting the successful MCA account applications processed during the previous month.

Referral bonus "Dukascoin#6" was launched today

As of May 29, 2019 MCA clients of Dukascopy Bank may get 6 Dukascoins instead of 5 as was previously the case. This is a new extension of the Dukascopy Bank Referral Program. Its aim is to involve even more clients in the bank’s profitable Welcome Bonus.

New clients are eligible for the Referral Bonus if they meet the following criteria:

  • The referral code should be entered during the MCA account application procedure through the Dukascopy Connect 911 messenger.
  • The MCA account should be successfully approved and opened.
  • Clients will not use their 5 Dukascoins during 30 days after reception of these crypto-assets.

The Bank will calculate the average daily Dukascoin balance of an MCA account at the end of a 30-day period and will release the reward if the account meets the Bonus criteria above. This means that the clients have the right to send/get/sell/buy Dukascoins at their discretion during the first 30 days of holding Dukascoins. However, the average daily balance should not be less than 5 Dukascoins.

The Bonus will be credited automatically when the account holder meets the Bonus requirements on the 31st day after receiving 5 Dukascoins as a welcome bonus for opening an account. Clients who will get the Dukascoin#6 will see the special incoming transaction in the “Bank” section of their 911 Dukascopy Connect messengers and their DUK+ balance will be increased by 1 Dukascoin.

Milestone reached: 1031 new MCA accounts per day!

Dukascopy Bank is proud to inform that the next key milestone of MCA and Dukascoin projects has been passed: more than 1 000 new MCA accounts have been opened on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.

Only one week ago we celebrated substantial progress of clients' onboarding figures, and we did it again! This fact is the vivid evidence of the accuracy of the bank's plans developed more than a year ago. We can only refer to the Dukascoin Whitepaper, “the Bank started to offer MCA accounts for its clients one year before the launch of the Dukascoin project (February 28, 2019). In the beginning, the number of new MCA accounts per day was about 10. In 5 months it had reached about 50. Ten months after the launch of MCA accounts, the Bank was opening 100 new accounts per day. With the help of the Dukascoin Crypto, the Bank is planning to open from 1000 to 10000+ MCA accounts on a daily basis. With the trend continuing to be so dynamic, the Bank is eager to become the biggest digital bank regulated in Switzerland. The Dukascoin will be the instrument of this expansion.” Today we would like to stress that those 1000 accounts per day which have been set as far away milestone is reached very soon.

Currently, despite some scepticism from the side of market participants regarding the concept of airdrop emission, Dukascoin has secured a stable exchange rate of around 0.75 EUR per 1 DUK+ during the month and a half. Such market evaluation ensures the progressive ongoing development of the project. A couple of dozens of clients have already allocated their Dukascoins with our Coin and EUR reward programs. And the elite club of Dukascoin holders called Fat Catz has already hailed its first members.

The future perspectives look bright, and we confidently declare that our retail banking and crypto projects fully match the initial road map while keeping up the positive dynamics!

Dukascopy Bank is happy to inform that positive dynamic of new MCA accounts opening is gathering the pace. On April, 16 new mark has been set. 823 new clients joined the growing community of MCA account holders.

DUK+ distribution for MCA accounts opened before 28/02/2019

In accordance with the principles published in the Dukascoin Whitepaper, Dukascopy Bank is pleased to inform all MCA clients who opened their accounts before the start of the Airdrop that they are eligible for the following offers from Dukascopy Bank:

Firstly, MCA account holders who didn`t benefit from the MCA promotional program (didn`t get 5 EUR after an MCA account opening before 28/02/2019) will receive five Dukascoins. The distribution will be performed during the nearest term. Dukascoins will be credited to MCA account balances automatically. Clients don`t need to undertake any action.

The second option is intended for MCA account holders and their Referrers who had received 5 EUR pursuant to the MCA promotional program before 28/02/2019. Despite the current market price of DUK+ fluctuating around 0.75 EUR per coin, Dukascopy Bank is following its obligations revealed in the Dukascoin Whitepaper and is offering the possibility to buy 5 Dukascoins at the price of 5 EUR during a period of 30 days starting from the day of this announcement. Clients willing to realize their right during the above mentioned term are invited to send an individual request to crypto@dukascopy.bank with their MCA account details and phone numbers for further processing.

After completion of the DUK+ distribution for MCA accounts opened before 28/02/2019 the bank is happy to announce that all activities according to the Dukascoin Whitepaper regarding initial coin distribution have been fulfilled. Further regular Dukascoin distribution will be performed according the Rules published here. This concept was developed by the bank to guarantee deficit of Dukascoins in circulations. The amount of Dukascoins will always be linked to the number of MCA accounts opened and consequently the number of clients who underwent the strict identification procedures.

We congratulate all clients of Dukascopy Bank with the completion of the initial stage of the Duksacoin Airdrop launch!

We would like to remind that currently up to 800 clients open MCA accounts on daily basis and receive 5 Dukascoins for free. The exchange rate of Dukascoins to EUR has been stable during the past month and fluctuates around 0,75 EUR per coin. Dukascopy Bank clients are able to join different income generating programs described on the website www.dukascoin.com. In order to collect an amount of Dukascoins to meet the minimum requirements for various income generating programs, our clients can access Dukascoin marketplace any time either through their mobile applications or via the web-link

Starting from next week legal entities which will open MCA accounts will get 5 Dukascoins for free. Thus, all clients who will open an MCA account will be eligible to participate in the Dukascoin airdrop.

Dukascopy Bank: crypto-funding available for test

Preparing the launch of Dukascoins, Dukascopy Bank (or "the Bank") announces the Live testing of its crypto-funding functionality, which is an important element of the infrastructure built by the Bank for operating with crypto-currencies.

What does crypto-funding stand for? This is the bridge between the client’s account with Dukascopy Bank and a crypto-currency wallet of that client in blockchain. The new functionality allows the Bank’s customers to deposit and withdraw funds to/from their crypto-fundable accounts with the Bank in the form of crypto-currency transfers. In the framework of that service, top-ups and withdrawals are possible only from/to a blockchain wallet where the client is the sole owner.
