We are thrilled to announce that Yuanbao is the first Chinese cryptocurrency exchange to have added support for the factoids software tokens. After our software sale, and our visit to China’s Blockchain Summit, earlier this year, the Chinese community has been eager for a platform on which to trade factoids. Yuanbao is Factom’s officially recommended partner for the Chinese/Asian market.
We have released binaries and installers for the Factom client to make it easier for users to transfer tokens as they wish. You can find our guides together with the installers for Windows, Mac, and Linux here: http://factom.org/howto.
Yuanbao has chosen “Factom factoids” as the clearest way to list factoids on their platform, given many people aren’t aware of the technical details of the Factom Network or its use of “factoids”, but know the project simply as “Factom”.
Yuanbao Exchange is one of China’s largest digital assets exchange, with a daily trading volume of around 5 million USD. They have been on the market for more than two years already, and currently have 18 coins been successfully traded on the platform, factoids will be the 19th. We are happy to partner with a reliable and trustworthy service to allow all Asian users to be able to purchase access to our software with factoids.

- Friday, 18 December 2015, 3:00 PM China Standard Time (07:00 AM GMT/UTC, 02:00 AM EST). Deposit of Factoids will be opened so that users can prepare themselves for trading and deposit the necessary funds.
