Phemex Lists DOGE Contracts, 1,000,000 DOGE Giveaway To Celebrate
The soaring interest and recurring requests from users prompted Phemex to respond by listing DOGE/USD contracts with up to 20x leverage at the start of March. A DOGE/USDT spot trading pair was also added later in the month.
The plan was to launch a giveaway coinciding with the debut of the contract, offering an impressive 1,000,000 DOGE to the first 5,000 new users to register to the Phemex advanced trading platform between March 1 and March 15.
