Why WPCS (WPCS) Is Gaining Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- WPCS  (WPCS) was gaining 6% to $1.77 Wednesday after the company announced the beta version of its BTX trader platform is now available as a web app.

The BTX trader platform lets Bitcoin traders track and trade the cryptocurrency on a variety of markets. Before the availability of the web app BTX Trader was only available as a desktop app for Windows PCs. The availability of a web app brings the trading platform to more potential users, including those who prefer to use Macs and Linux-based computers.

"Progress with the development of our trading platform remains on schedule and we continue to prepare to roll out new features and functionality, including adding access to market data for the major Bitcoin exchanges, such as Kraken, LocalBTC, Bitfinex, Coindesk, Cryptsy, Bitpay and Bitcoin.de," BTX CTO Divya Thakur said in a press release. "The online version offers the same feature set and interface customizability our users are accustomed to on the desktop client. We will continue to support both the desktop and web versions of BTX Trader. This release compliments the low latency, high throughput Windows-based downloadable desktop trading platform."

BTX Trader can be accessed at btxtrader.com.
