Bitcoin trading platform Okcoin launched today a poll asking clients to determine the commission rate for their future services. Xu Mingxing, CEO of the company, claimed in an announcement that it is the ubiquitous decision of the whole industry to charge fixed commissions in a bid to fend against profiteering.

However, another bitcoin trading platform Huobi continued to provide free services and its turnover once surpassed leading services like Okcoin and BTC China.

According to representative of Okcoin, the result of this poll will be posted on Thursday together with IP address, nickname and voting time of each vote. No commissions will be charged during the poll.
