The fast increase in value is one of the things that made Bithumb famous. Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Ripple and even Litecoin seen a drastic increase in value after being listed by Bithumb and Korbit, the two largest exchanges in South Korea. South Korea made itself know in the cryptocurrency as one of the countries that invest the most. In fact, one of the most known traders in South Korea declared that “When things start going to the moon, Koreans buy more than everyone else. It’s a much more extreme fluctuation,” for Forbes.

Finally, the team and the project got some positive media attention and the Bithumb listing will probably increase the Monero value even more. Some people speculate it at a $200 short term and $400-$600 long term. If you wish to be a Monero Holder, try to mine Monero or to buy Monero
