Trade Recommendation: 0x (ZRX)

The primary reason why we don’t allow the fear of missing out lure us into buying coins that have already pumped is because markets always pull back. With a little patience, you can usually get your orders filled at your desired price or at least close to it. Take for example 0x (ZRX/BTC). The market […] The post Trade Recommendation: 0x (ZRX) appeared first on Hacked: Hacking Finance.

Trade Recommendation: 0x (ZRX)

0x (ZRX/USD) has been on our radar since it breached support of $0.455 on November 19, 2018. At that point, we were interested in seeing whether 0x would recover the support. Bulls attempted to reclaim that price level twice but they were sent back on both occasions. As a result, this coin stumbled as it […] The post Trade Recommendation: 0x (ZRX) appeared first on Hacked: Hacking Finance.

Decentralized Exchange Comparative Review. Looking for suggested resources, projects, protocols, and comparative criteria from this community.

Per the title, I'm looking for suggestions from this community to assist in conducting a neutral and strictly technical comparison of all novel Decentralized Exchange Solutions. See below for a rough outline. I’m looking for suggestions from this community to refine or add to each section: Exchange Required Characteristics: High Liquidity High Network Security Low Trading Fees Low Listing fees Low Trading Latency Well-designed UX Non-custodial Support for advanced financial products (shorts, derivatives, etc.) Support for different trading pairs Support for stablecoins Open APIs Comparative Criteria of Exchange Protocol: Is there Token? What is the token utility? Is it necessary? Do traders require the token for trade? How is the project governed? Is it permissionless? Are there withdrawal limits? What is the latency on trading / liquidity? Is the DEX currency centric or currency neutral (terminology defined by u/insette. See below for reddit post) KYC Liquidity Pool? OTC Liquidity Pool? Fiat on-ramp / off-ramp? Are there coin listing fees? How is spam deterred? Are advanced financial products possible to integrate? Are stablecoins supported? Which ones? Are multiple trading pairs available? Current Network Value Current Exchange Volume The Exchange Protocol Is Capital Storage trustless? How? Is Order Broadcasting trustless? How? Is Order Matching trustless? How? What is the order matching method? How? Is Exchange Settlement trustless? How? Projects: 0x Altcoin.io Bancor Blocknet CryptoBridge Counterparty Kyber Network Barter DEX Bisq Ether Delta Fork Delta IDEX OasisDEX OpenLedger Stellar Distributed Exchange Waves 0x Relayers Amadeus DDEX Decent Ex Dextroid ERC dEX Ethfinex IDT Exchange Paradex Radar Relay The Ocean X Note that my intent is not to include every single project that calls themselves a DEX in this comparison, however focus on select projects that truly offer strong differentiating characteristics. The above list is a draft, and I'd like to hear from the community what projects are worth exploring. If you propose a project to be included in the comparative review, please be explicit about what competitive advantage that project offers. Some references for DEX architecture that I'm using to assist in conducting this study include: [1] State of Decentralized Exchanges, 2018 [2] An Overview of Decentralized Trading of Digital Assets [3.1] Front-running, Griefing and the Perils of Virtual Settlement (Part 1) [3.2] Front-running, Griefing and the Perils of Virtual Settlement (Part 2) [4] Deconstructing Decentralized Exchanges [5] The Cost of Decentralization in 0x and EtherDelta [6] Understanding Decentralized Exchange [7] RFP: Decred Decentralized Exchange Infrastructure [8] A New Kind of DEX [9] 0x ($ZRX) Analysis and Valuation [10] On-Chain Atomic Swaps [11] Decred Github Atomic Swap [12] /r/CryptoTech PSA: there are broadly TWO TYPES of Decentralized Exchanges.

Coinbase BATs 300 With Free Money Promo

Coinbase has launched Coinbase Earn for Basic Attention Token (BAT), which gives users the ability to earn up to $10 worth of BAT for engaging with educational content. It’s the latest in a series of earn-and-learn pages, the first of which featured the 0x (ZRX) token at year-end 2018. Brave and Coinbase have earmarked $5 million in BAT tokens for this project, all of which will go directly to users. It’s currently available on an invitation-only basis, but the wider sector will soon be able to participate. If this was a marketing strategy designed to generate demand, it seems to be working. Coinbase’s latest concept has helped to deliver a double-digit return for the BAT price, buoying up a broader crypto market trading in the green today. Source: CryptoCompare According to one Redditor, the BAT Coinbase Earn page is a home run. “Completed the four videos and one-question quizzes a few minutes ago. Informative and quick. The BATs were deposited immediately after each completion. Looking forward to the ads on the browser to earn more!” In addition to earning while participating in educational videos about the Brave browser and BAT,  Coinbase will also reward users with BAT for using Brave. In a blog post, Coinbase said that earning is a single function in a three-pronged crypto ecosystem, one that extends to buying and mining. Earning and Learning Based on Ethereum (ETH), BAT is the native token for the Brave browser, whose mission is to fix a broken digital advertising system. The Brave rewards system is a virtuous cycle, giving consumers the opportunity to receive BAT tokens for opting-in to private ads while publishers earn for producing compelling content. Brave is popular in blockchain circles but it has yet to achieve the mainstream adoption the company is looking for. Sergey Zhukovsky, Brave’s Senior Software Engineer for Android, pointed to a lack of knowledge surrounding tracking and privacy as an impediment to growth. It is also partly down to Brave’s acrimonious relationship with other browsers. The project’s Senior Software Engineer for iOS Joel Reis criticized Apple for its default browser restrictions, which interfere with user adoption of the Brave browser. For all of the progress that Brave has made, Web 3.0 remains in the early innings for mainstream adoption. The Coinbase Earn initiative has done its part to rouse the crowd, but this needs to be converted into actual users. Otherwise Brave might as well be another foul ball for the crypto team.

Emoon NFT Marketplace Leverages 0x (ZRX) Protocol for No-Fee English Auctions

Emoon, a peer-to-peer platform for buying and selling cryptocurrency assets, will now use 0x (ZRX) protocol for NFT auctions, allowing users to sell their in-game assets easily. Announcing the news though their twitter handle, 0x said that the NFT marketplace would use their protocol for gas-efficient English auctions, with zero fees. The tweet read: NFT marketplace @efolioapp is using 0x protocol for gas efficient English auctions, no gas required https://t.co/pSKSGTwVag — 0x (@0xProject) February 4, 2019 Emoon will allow users to bid for non-fungible tokens using their ERC20 tokens (or supported ERC721 assets). Sellers will also have the opportunity to review all the bids and select their best offer, with all operations happening off-chain until a seller accepts a bid. Zero Fees The architecture of the system is designed to minimize gas costs associated with on-chain transactions, allowing users to bid without actually paying any gas. According to an official blog post by Emoon, the platform will demonstrate how auctions and smart contracts can work efficiently. The post read: “Ultimately, we hope that the English auction experience on Emoon serves to validate this important use case for the Ethereum ecosystem, demonstrating how auctions and smart contracts can come together efficiently. The number of use cases that potentially fall out of this functionality is vast, tying into the vision of radical markets proposed by Posner and Weyl.” How the Platform Works According to Emoon, users can navigate to the Cryptokitties category and see all kitties that are up for auction. Once they create a 0x signed order, they are accepting to trade their asset for a given item. At this point, they can bid on the CryptoKitty with another ERC721 asset or ERC20 token.

What Is the Kyber Network Exchange?  Introduction to KNC Token

What Is Kyber Network? Kyber Network is a decentralized, peer-to-peer crypto asset exchange based on the Ethereum blockchain. A dynamic reserve pool ensures the network maintains liquidity to keep exchanges as cheap and fast as possible. The project was created in Singapore by CoFounders Loi Luu, Yaron Velner, and Victor Tran. Kyber Network Crystal (KNC) is the proprietary ERC-20 cryptocurrency token used to pay exchange fees. Centralized cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance and Coinbase are among the strongest performing blockchain companies. Both exchanges generated an estimated $1 billion in profits in 2017 and 2018. But complaints of regulatory uncertainty, security concerns, exchange costs, and delays in cashing out plague these popular exchanges. From the disappearance of 850,000 BTC from Mt. Gox in 2014 to the $145 million worth of crypto assets frozen in the exchange wallet of the deceased QuadrigaCX CEO in 2019, cryptocurrency exchanges are not getting good press. Decentralized and OTC exchanges like Zero-X (0X) (which the author is invested in), IDEX, OAX, and OasisDex are finding more use during these uncertain times. In fact, Crypto Briefing has long held a belief in decentralized exchanges as the future of cryptocurrency. Kyber Network’s promise of liquidity and bookless trades makes for an easy sell. And it helps that the company delivered on its development roadmap throughout 2018, making early investors and adopters happy. Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin is a member of the team’s advisory board. The Foundation also created an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) that facilitates ICOs on the platform. While ICOs took a massive publicity hit in 2018, they’re still a popular method of cryptocurrency funding in 2019, as evidenced by the $7.2 million BitTorrent (BTT) public token sale. Let’s start our research into the viability of the ambitious Kyber Network with an exploration of KNC, the native ERC-20 cryptocurrency token used by the platform. KNC Cryptocurrency Summary Kyber Network Crystal (KNC) has a circulating supply of 157,166,004 out of a total supply of 215,250,053 KNC as of February 4, 2019. The peak price so far of KNC was $5.32 on January 9, 2018. A total of 226,000,000 KNC was initially minted during the ICO token sale, which ended September 16, 2017, raising $52 million worth of ETH, BTC, and USD. KNC cannot be mined – instead it is awarded to Reserve Entities, Reserve Contributors, Reserve Managers, and The Kyber Network Operator (discussed below). Reserve Managers use KNC tokens to operate network reserves and pay trade fees. Some of the transaction fees are used for operating costs and participation rewards, while the remainder is burned. Aside from its own internal crypto exchange, KNC is also traded on Binance, DragonEX, Bitrue, Coineal, and 55 Global Markets. Popular trading pairs include ETH, BTC, XRP, and KRW. As an ERC-20 token, KNC can be stored on any ERC20-compatible wallet, including MyEtherWallet, TrustWallet, and hardware wallets by Trezor and other manufacturers. Kyber Cyber Gif Jif Whatever The major differentiating factor between Kyber Network and 0x is that the Kyber Network records exchanges onchain, while leaving the order book offchain. 0x, on the other hand, keeps both the order book and exchange offchain. Other than that, both exchanges operate very similarly, while also separate from centralized exchanges like Coinbase and Binance. There are four key roles that maintain the Kyber Network for users. Reserve Entities – Reserve Entities provide liquid assets to ensure tokens can easily be exchanged to/from the network. Both public and private Reserve Entities can be registered, depending on whether the public contributes to the reserves. Reserve Contributors – If a Reserve Entity is public, Reserve Contributors share in its reserve profits. Reserve Managers – Reserve Managers act essentially as accountants on the network, calculating exchange rates and maintaining the reserve. Kyber Network Operator – The Kyber Network Operator governs network operations, approving Reserve Entities (or removing, as needed), listing tokens for exchange, and ensuring overall security of operation of the network. When a exchange is made on the Kyber Network, a smart contract is created, and each role has different access to verify and execute the contract for the end users. The “reserve” referred to in the roles above is the dynamic reserve pool, which is the collective total of all reserve nodes. The exchange contract is automatically routed to the Reserve Entity with the best rates for the requested tokens. If rates exceed certain thresholds above or below what’s expected, the node is flagged for verification. The inner workings of the platform are great, but it also has strong business partnerships, and a shiny GUI called Kyber Swap. The Crypto KyberSwap Meet KyberSwap is a web-based and mobile exchange app developed by the team to let you either “swap” tokens for another type or transfer tokens to another address. It also offers market price analysis and a suite of other tools. This service is being marketed as a separate dApp from the Kyber Network. With the tools it has in place, Kyber Network can pivot a lot of different directions, following the lead of other crypto exchanges or forging its own path. The team received investments from Hyperchain Capital, Pantera, Fenbushi Capital, Kenetic Capital, FBG, Danhua Capital, Hashed, and Signum Capital. The website includes partners such as Wanchain, Gifto, Icon, Coinduck, and Enigma. As the team continues forging partnerships and developing more tools to draw both liquidity and users to the platform, Kyber Network is poised to grow through 2020. Summary Kyber Network is one of many decentralized cryptocurrency exchange markets. That doesn’t mean it’s not useful, and KyberSwap is one of many easy-to-use dApps to enable crypto token and asset exchanges. The success of Kyber Network hinges on these key factors. Kyber Network Crystal (KNC) is a deflationary ERC-20 token used by Reserve Managers to pay exchange fees for on-chain exchanges. A portion of KNC is burned in every transaction. Unlike 0x, exchanges happen onchain, but the book is stored offchain. This creates a smart contract to handle all aspects of the crypto exchange. Kyber Network has institutional investors and partnerships that include Wanchain, Icon, and more. Its development team and board of advisors is also strong. With these pieces in place, Kyber Network is poised to remain a powerful force in the crypto market. Problems continue plaguing centralized exchanges, and Kyber can relieve many of these issues. The author is invested in digital assets, including BTC, 0X, and ETH, which are mentioned in this article. Join the conversation on Telegram and Twitter!

Bug Discovered On Ethereum Parity Nodes As New Solution Is Already Being Worked On

Bug Discovered On Ethereum Parity Nodes, But Solution Is Already Being Worked On As platforms continually update and investigate options that could help their functionality flourish, many will investigate their blockchain and software for potential vulnerabilities. In a recent notice on the official website, it seems that the Parity Ethereum software for nodes/wallets has been infiltrated with a bug. The bug exposes the Parity nodes to an attack, which would allow hackers to push the nodes offline. It threatens much of the infrastructure of Ethereum as a whole. However, developers quickly jumped on this issue, and are presently working to resolve the issue through the creation and testing of a patch. Anyone that is worried about the operations of the software can check on the Parity Twitter page. Etherscan.io says that over 25% of the nodes in the ecosystem are served by clients of Parity. Those nodes, in turn, are also a crucial part of multiple Ethereum applications, including MyCrypto, MyEtherWallet, and Infura. Infura, for example, offers the connectivity needed on the network for multiple key products, like CryptoKitties, the 0x Protocol, and Metamask. According to ConsenSys, Infura was responsible for an average of 6 billion requests a day last year, which is why 15,000 developers were collectively registered on it. This invasive bug was originally reported by Kosala Hemachandra, who is the founder of MyEtherWallet. Since it was Hemachandra’s discovery, the bug bounty program will provide a reward. However, this news did not outshine the fact that the Constantinople update has been delayed, which was due to a separate bug found in Ethereum Improvement Proposal 1283. At this point, nodes have already been downgraded to the most recent successful upgrade. According to CoinMarketCap, Ethereum presently ranks third in the world by market cap and is priced at $106.85.

0x / USD Technical Analysis: Breaking Support

ZRX is bearish in the short-term with the ZRX / USD pair posting fresh all-time lows ZRX / USD has recently fallen below the neckline of a head and shoulders pattern and looks set to extend its recent losses Medium-term picture is also bearish with price trapped inside a large falling wedge pattern ZRX / USD Short-term price analysis   In the short-term, ZRX is bearish and looks set to extend its recent losses. The ZRX / USD pair is posting record all-time lows, while also trading beneath the neckline of a large head and shoulders pattern. Buyers have twice failed to bring price back above the neckline of the bearish head and shoulders pattern, further highlighting the potential for short-term weakness in the ZRX / USD pair. Technical indicators also show that the next down move is ready to commence, with both the Stochastic and MACD indicators on the four-hour time frame primed for a move lower.   Pattern Watch The bearish head and shoulders pattern is the overwhelming theme on the four-hour time frame chart, a failed inverted head and shoulders pattern can also be seen.     ZRX / USD H4 Chart                                                                         (Source: TradingView)     MACD Indicator The MACD indicator has corrected higher, and is starting to trend lower, in line with the recent down move. It is also worth noting that selling activity may pick up once the signal line crosses over and the MACD histogram moves below the zero line.   Stochastic The Stochastic indicator on the four-hour time frame has corrected higher and is starting to turn, the indicator also shows plenty of scope to trade lower. ZRX / USD Medium-term price analysis   ZRX is bearish in the medium-term, with the daily time frame chart showing price trapped inside a large falling wedge pattern. After recently failing to break above the well-defined wedge pattern, sellers are now starting to take control of price-action, sending the ZRX / USD pair to a fresh all-time trading low. In line with the prevailing theme of overall weakness, ZRX is likely to fall towards the bottom of the falling wedge pattern in the medium-term. Falling wedge patterns are statistically bullish, so the ZRX / USD pair should be closely watched for any bullish signals if a top-side breakout were to occur.     ZRX / USD Daily Chart                                                                         (Source: TradingView)     Pattern Watch Aside from the falling wedge pattern on the daily time frame, the November 2018 decline seen in the ZRX / USD pair has triggered a series of bearish head and shoulders patterns.   RSI + MACD Indicators The RSI indicator is turning bearish and shows the emergence of a failed inverted head and shoulders pattern. The MACD indicator is also starting to turn lower, although the MACD signal line is currently neutral and awaiting a definitive breakout in the ZRX / USD pair. Conclusion   ZRX is overwhelmingly one of the most bearish cryptocurrencies among the top 30. In the short-term, another decline appears imminent.

Billionaire Elon Musk Lauds Bitcoin As “Quite Brilliant,” Why Isn’t Tesla Going Crypto?

While Elon Musk has yet to formally delve into the Bitcoin space, he has long been a fabled member of the crypto community. Since finding his way to the headlines of the world’s media, the Tesla chief executive’s pro-innovation mindset has struck a chord with many enamored with cryptocurrencies. In fact, some say that Musk’s unsaid raison d’etre of bettering society at large, especially by amending the world’s most harrowing issues (climate change, confinement on Earth, financial inequality), lines up with the goals held by many cryptocurrency insiders. Thus, some have even argued that Musk could be Satoshi Nakamoto. Sahil Gupta, a former intern at Musk’s second multi-billion dollar enterprise SpaceX, once infamously claimed that Musk’s brief mentionings of cryptography, economics, the C++ computing language, along with the entrepreneur overarching vision scream Satoshi. The South African-Canadian entrepreneur has done his best to keep his mouth zipped regarding his candidacy for the Satoshi title, but that hasn’t stopped him from talking about cryptocurrencies. We had @elonmusk on the latest episode of @ARKInvest's podcast! He had a few things to say about Bitcoin. "Paper money is going away and cryptocurrency is a far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper." – Elon Muskhttps://t.co/U5qOnM7nBo — Yassine Elmandjra (@yassineARK) February 19, 2019 Bitcoin Is “Quite Brilliant” While the crypto market has remained in a depressed state, save for Monday’s jaw-dropping rally, stars have begun to descend on this industry. Weeks ago, NewsBTC reported that a mass of celebrities, including the Spice Girl’s Mel B, Johnny Depp, Madonna, and Lionel Messi, had some involvement in cryptocurrency. More recently, Jack Dorsey of both Twitter and Square took to Joe Rogan to claim that the native currency of the Internet is likely to be Bitcoin.

And just on Tuesday, Elon Musk, the most well-known Silicon Valley guru, took to the New York-based ARK Invest’s “FYI” Podcast to touch on Tesla’s plans, autonomy, other innovations, such as crypto. Per The Block, who compiled his comments regarding cryptocurrencies, Musk made his comments with explicitly bullish tones. After discussing Tesla’s most recent advancements, the hosts of the podcast, the CEO and an analyst at ARK, a disruptive innovation-centric investment group, took a brief aside. They asked Musk if he agrees with Dorsey’s recent comments on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies at large. Interestingly, Musk responded with an answer, albeit somewhat cursory. He tacitly agreed, noting that the “Bitcoin structure was (is) quite brilliant,” adding that Ethereum and “maybe some of the others” have merit too. Musk did admit that he isn’t too enamored with Bitcoin’s Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism, noting that it is energy intensive. Yet, he explained that fundamentally, crypto assets are great as they bypass currency controls, especially in nations embroiled in financial and political turmoil, like Venezuela. He added that cryptocurrencies are also a “far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper,” subsequently quipping that he’s sure of this “without a doubt.” In spite of all this, he made it clear that Tesla isn’t going to foray into the crypto space in any capacity, noting that it would be a good use of his firm’s resources to prop up an offering. Musk’s abrash comments quickly elicited responses from each and every corner of the crypto space. Matt Odell, a long-time pro-Bitcoin coder and industry personality, joked that the comments “confirmed” his bias that cryptocurrencies could oust banknotes. Changpeng “CZ” Zhao of Binance noted that eventually, “[Musk] will join the brotherhood,” adding that he is unequivocally sure that the businessman will take up a crypto mantle. CZ notably called on the Tesla founder to take up the Lightning Network Trust Chain torch last week, just days after Twitter’s Dorsey openly lauded Bitcoin in dozens of tweets. Crypto Is Better Than Banknotes? While Musk made notable acknowledgments in his brief appearance on ARK’s “FYI,” what stood out to many crypto investors was his thoughts on the dichotomy between banknotes & physical cash, and crypto assets, not centralized e-money. For a brief recap, Musk simply stated that he is unequivocally sure that crypto, whether it be Bitcoin, Ethereum, or otherwise, is a “far better” medium of exchange than pieces of paper. Shocking, right? This may be deemed hearsay by pundits of the legacy world, but the world is already adopting digital mediums of exchange. Per previous reports from this outlet, Arthur Hayes of BitMEX took to his company blog to claim that platforms like WeChat Pay and AliPay have already begun to take over China’s financial system. Who’s to say that cryptocurrencies, a decentralized counterpart to these systems that tout their own currencies, cannot have a similar impact on society at large. The fact of the matter is that these digital payments systems, whether decentralized or centralized, offer benefits that cash/plastic cannot. Case in point, payments on both Bitcoin and WeChat Pay are cheap, rapid, and relatively secure. But arguably, decentralized payment ecosystems, which are non-sovereign, private, immutable, and non-censorable, are even better than their centralized peers, which is likely what Musk was touching on.

In the Daily: Elon Musk Talks Bitcoin, Shanghai’s Fudan University, Xdat Exchange

In this edition of The Daily we cover some largely supportive remarks the famous entrepreneur Elon Musk has made about Bitcoin, the latest academic institution to launch a blockchain R&D center, and a new offering from Malta-based exchange Xdat. Also Read: Bank of Spain Report: Bitcoin Is a Solution for a System Without Censorship Elon Musk Talks Bitcoin The founder of Tesla and Spacex, Elon Musk, is once again making headlines about crypto. He recently went on the Ark Invest podcast to discuss the future of autonomous driving technologies. Most of the half-hour interview focused on the strategy behind his electric car company but the topic of cryptocurrency eventually popped up in the last four minutes. Musk commented: “I think the Bitcoin structure is quite brilliant. There seems like there is some merit to Ethereum as well, and obviously others. But I’m not sure if it’s a good use of Tesla resources to get involved in cryptos … We’re really just trying to accelerate the advances of sustainable energy. One downside of Bitcoin is … computationally it’s quite energy intensive. There has to be some kind of constraint on the creation of crypto. It’s very energy intensive to create the incremental bitcoin at this point … It bypasses currency controls. Paper money is going away, and crypto is a far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper. That’s for sure.” Shanghai’s Fudan University Launches Research Center Shanghai’s Fudan University has become the latest academic institution to launch a blockchain R&D center. Founded in 1905, Fudan is one of the most prestigious and selective schools for higher learning in China. The Shanghai Blockchain Engineering Technology Research Center is tasked with carrying out basic research in the field, developing demo applications in collaboration with the broader industry, and training talent to serve Shanghai’s economic development. Last month the University of California, Berkeley announced the formation of its own blockchain-focused startup accelerator program, the Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator. This program is meant to help aspiring entrepreneurs create high-value ventures in the blockchain space with industry guidance from Silicon Valley. Xdat Exchange Lists 18 Trading Pairs Xdat, a new Malta-based cryptocurrency trading exchange, has announced the listing of 18 trading pairs. These comprise ETH/BTC, BCH/BTC, EOS/BTC, ETC/BTC, XRP/BTC, DASH/BTC, LTC/BTC, BTC/ETH, BCH/ETH, EOS/ETH, ETC/ETH, XRP/ETH, DASH/ETH, LTC/ETH, BTC/TUSD, ETH/TUSD, BTC/EURO, and ETH/EURO. The company has further plans to add other pairs over time. The exchange is compliant with Maltese regulations for KYC and AML procedures and caters to both retail and institutional investors. Its fiat gateway allows users to deposit funds in 12 major currencies: USD, GBP, JPY, HKD, CHF, AUD, NOK, SEK, DKK, CZK, PLN, and HUF. This selection is meant to eliminate the need for involvement of a foreign bank for the supported options and allows users to work solely with Xdat’s bank. “Xdat is on a mission to address the key problems of existing exchanges … including lack of flow of new capital, lack of trust, no approach for mass adoption, and high fragmentation,” said CEO Prashanth Swaminathan. “Our aim is to bring crypto to all. To that end, we will be working closely with our community and using their support and feedback to make our interface more user-friendly and trading as streamlined as possible.” What do you think about today’s news tidbits?
