New MAID Listing: ChainRift Exchange

As you may have seen from our earlier post on Medium this afternoon, we’re delighted to announce ChainRift will open trading for MAID/BTC trading pairs at 18:00 GMT on Monday 17th September 2018.

After a few conversations in recent weeks, we’ve been impressed with the team behind the exchange and we’re delighted that there will now be another option for those who are looking to trade MAID. Please do visit the Medium post to learn more.

In the meantime, the ChainRift team will be on this Forum to pick up any feedback and they’re happy to answer any questions that you might have in advance of the listing going live.


Great to finally see this announcement pushed out!

I suppose this is the best time and place to issue my formal introduction on the SAFE Network Forum after being a “lurker” in the community for a while.

Hi everyone. My name is Daniel and I handle business development related items for the ChainRift cryptocurrency exchange. In the industry, I have also previously worked as the managing editor for a Bitcoin-focused news publication.

It brings me great pleasure to finally be able to start talking to the listing publicly. The MaidSafe team and us at ChainRift have been in close correspondence to ensure a seamless and successful listing onto our exchange.
Myself and the rest of the ChainRift team will be available here (via me) to answer any and all questions you as the MAID community may have!

Thank you for having me and eager to answer your questions and meet some of you in the process.


Deposit options (currently they are not available for viewing on website until signup)?

This is a solid point. We have generated some interest as well as secured liquidity for the upcoming MAID/BTC listing, so this should spark some volume.

Additionally, we are working on generating interest + additional liquidity for the remaining trading pairs we have open, so this ought to improve shortly!

Regarding promotion in specific, we are certainly doing our part and hope that yourselves as the MaidSafe community will also join the effort! :grin:

Thanks for your interest! Just for reference, we are working on the trading platform to be viewable without sign-up towards the first week of October.

Regarding your question, we have a plethora of cryptocurrencies available as deposit options, however our only trading pairs currently open are: XTZ/BTC, BTC/USDT, EOS/BTC, PART/BTC, POOR/EOS. We are working on fiat integration as a future option.


We’re a US-based exchange that complies with federal and state law. Our tier system allows users to test our exchange before proceeding to verification. Users are required to provide the necessary personal information upon registration, and further KYC/AML documentation is required when attempting to exceed the provided withdrawal limits.


What is your withdrawal limit without verifition?

I went to create an account, but there’s a box you have to check for:

I am not a resident of the following countries:
U.S.A, Burma, Ivory Coast, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria.

Withdrawal limit without verification is $2,500 USD/day while you test the ChainRift platform.


Yes, that’s correct. We’re working on opening our exchange to U.S. residents in the near future.

Hey guys. Just a heads up that we’ll be away for approximately the next 12 hours. Will answer whatever questions you guys have left here then!


So is there a time period set for testing. Or can one test for years by keeping under the 2,500/day

The end goal is to get all active users on the exchange as verified. We aim to incentivize users to verify as soon as convenient, but for the foreseeable future there is no firm obligation.


Hey @dannyrdee good looking site and it’s pretty awesome you guys/gals are supporting @maidsafe safe coin.

I’m interested in knowing who the team is. I see another pump for you guys on the Maidsafe Medium forum and am a little perplexed that little info is public about the team behind ChainRift. I see a reference to a compliance officer/ team but no identity. Being a US based company would mean so much more in terms of compliance for you guys.

Any chance we can have a little depth to your intro?

Looking forward to watching you grow a successful org.


Lots of public stuff out there and a good looking team for the ChainRift (21MIL) and the Canadian content is encouraging. Even a Montreal support member

This is good @dannyrdee but if you can add to this please do it.

(I wish @maidsafe would offer up their due diligence before announcing these partnerships/relationships. The last time we saw a pump for an exchange… well you know)


How soon, might this be? Are we talking weeks or months?
