Cryptopolis, a Twitter personality and a quantitative analyst at StrongMarket, shared through a tweet that on Monday, he bought one bitcoin through an account on retail brokerage firm TD Ameritrade (NASDAQ: AMTD)
Cryptopolis further disclosed that bitcoin was trading on the platform under the unknown symbol “CXERX,” against United States dollar. The CXERX is purportedly listed on the Nasdaq. Based on the platform’s chart, the analyst suggested that BTC/USD trading pair was launched on April 10, 2019.
Following his findings, Cryptopolis contacted TD Ameritrade’s support in order to gather further information. However, the support declined to comment on the matter, stating that “it is not a symbol we trade on the live side so I’m not really able to speak on it.”
UPDATE: According to TDAmeritrade support – it’s not a real trade in my account – it appears they are testing only using their Paper Trading platform. Support said “I’m not able to speak on it” -They did not know what CXERX is. Strange… But something is going on for sure! pic.twitter.com/gUxtHX0TNg
