The UK celebrates spring bank holiday and the US observes Memorial Day holiday on Monday 27 May. Please beware of market closures and reduced liquidity on that day.

Since we continue to be contacted by presumed victims of GCG Asia, we hereby remind that contrary to the fraudulent allegations of GCG Asia, GCG Asia is not in collaboration with Dukascopy Bank or with any other entity of Dukascopy Group.
For attracting clients/investors/partners, GCG Asia and its CEO Yaw Foo Hoe are fraudulently using Dukascopy's name and logo without Dukascopy Bank's permission, issue fake authenticity certificates and state that Dukascopy Bank is the liquidity provider or bank of GCG Asia, which has never been true.
Despite Dukascopy Bank has already taken actions against this dishonest organisation and despite the public warning it has issued on 27th of February 2019, GCG Asia continues active spreading of its presumably fraudulent scheme in different countries.
As confirmed by FINMA on its website, GCG Asia has no presence in Switzerland and is not regulated by FINMA. Beware of the multiple lies of this rogue organisation and that Dukascopy Bank is not able to help any presumed victims of GCG Asia in recovering their funds.
由于我们继续被GCG Asia的受害者联系，我们特此提醒，与GCG Asia的欺诈性指控相反，GCG Asia与杜高斯贝银行或杜高斯贝集团的任何其他实体没有合作。
为了吸引客户/投资者/合作伙伴，GCG Asia及其首席执行官Yaw Foo Hoe在未经杜高斯贝银行的许可情况下，欺诈性地使用杜高斯贝的名称和商标，颁发假的证书，并声明杜高斯贝银行是GCG Asia的流动性提供者或银行，却这些都从末是真的。
正如FINMA（瑞士金融市场管理局）在其网站 上所证实的那样，GCG Asia在瑞士不存在，而且不受FINMA监管。谨防这个流氓组织的多重谎言并注意，杜高斯贝银行无法帮助GCG Asia的任何假定受害者收回他们的资金。
Dukascopy Bank starts offering its traders the possibility to use Dukascoins to trade on the entire range of speculative instruments on its margin trading platform. From now on clients can use the accumulated Dukascoins (DUK+) to fund their trading accounts and to invest in currencies, precious metals, indices, stocks, bonds, Bitcoin, Ethereum, oil, gas and other commodities. This is possible through the new Dukascoin funding mechanism offered for margin trading accounts.
Dukascoin funding allows almost doubling the actual trading leverage. Within the next step Dukascopy Bank plans to allow combined simultaneous usage of Dukascoins - clients will be able to place their DUK+ coins on income generating deposit and use them as margin trading collateral at the same time. Dukascoin income generating programs can bring up to 100% per year.
CEO of Dukascopy Bank Andre Duka says: "It is a traders's dream that trading collateral may bring you up to 100% of passive income per year. I'm happy that by extending the use of Dukascoin further it becomes a truly unique crypto currency. We are devoted to create paradise for investors."
Feel free to find more information on the new service in the website page.

Dukascopy Bank is proud to inform that the next key milestone of MCA and Dukascoin projects has been passed: more than 1 000 new MCA accounts have been opened on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
Only one week ago we celebrated substantial progress of clients' onboarding figures, and we did it again! This fact is the vivid evidence of the accuracy of the bank's plans developed more than a year ago. We can only refer to the Dukascoin Whitepaper, “the Bank started to offer MCA accounts for its clients one year before the launch of the Dukascoin project (February 28, 2019). In the beginning, the number of new MCA accounts per day was about 10. In 5 months it had reached about 50. Ten months after the launch of MCA accounts, the Bank was opening 100 new accounts per day. With the help of the Dukascoin Crypto, the Bank is planning to open from 1000 to 10000+ MCA accounts on a daily basis. With the trend continuing to be so dynamic, the Bank is eager to become the biggest digital bank regulated in Switzerland. The Dukascoin will be the instrument of this expansion.” Today we would like to stress that those 1000 accounts per day which have been set as far away milestone is reached very soon.
Currently, despite some scepticism from the side of market participants regarding the concept of airdrop emission, Dukascoin has secured a stable exchange rate of around 0.75 EUR per 1 DUK+ during the month and a half. Such market evaluation ensures the progressive ongoing development of the project. A couple of dozens of clients have already allocated their Dukascoins with our Coin and EUR reward programs. And the elite club of Dukascoin holders called Fat Catz has already hailed its first members.
The future perspectives look bright, and we confidently declare that our retail banking and crypto projects fully match the initial road map while keeping up the positive dynamics!

In accordance with the principles published in the Dukascoin Whitepaper, Dukascopy Bank is pleased to inform all MCA clients who opened their accounts before the start of the Airdrop that they are eligible for the following offers from Dukascopy Bank:
Firstly, MCA account holders who didn`t benefit from the MCA promotional program (didn`t get 5 EUR after an MCA account opening before 28/02/2019) will receive five Dukascoins. The distribution will be performed during the nearest term. Dukascoins will be credited to MCA account balances automatically. Clients don`t need to undertake any action.
The second option is intended for MCA account holders and their Referrers who had received 5 EUR pursuant to the MCA promotional program before 28/02/2019. Despite the current market price of DUK+ fluctuating around 0.75 EUR per coin, Dukascopy Bank is following its obligations revealed in the Dukascoin Whitepaper and is offering the possibility to buy 5 Dukascoins at the price of 5 EUR during a period of 30 days starting from the day of this announcement. Clients willing to realize their right during the above mentioned term are invited to send an individual request to [email protected] with their MCA account details and phone numbers for further processing.
After completion of the DUK+ distribution for MCA accounts opened before 28/02/2019 the bank is happy to announce that all activities according to the Dukascoin Whitepaper regarding initial coin distribution have been fulfilled. Further regular Dukascoin distribution will be performed according the Rules published here. This concept was developed by the bank to guarantee deficit of Dukascoins in circulations. The amount of Dukascoins will always be linked to the number of MCA accounts opened and consequently the number of clients who underwent the strict identification procedures.
We congratulate all clients of Dukascopy Bank with the completion of the initial stage of the Duksacoin Airdrop launch!
We would like to remind that currently up to 800 clients open MCA accounts on daily basis and receive 5 Dukascoins for free.
