StellarX,a zero-feed decentralized exchange built on the Stellar (XLM) blockchain with an industry-first fiat on-ramp, has officially launched.
According to the announcement, StellarX, which is a product of the new company formed by Chain and Lightyear, offers similar user control to its Ethereum blockchain counterparts, including IDEX and EtherDelta. However, unlike these DEXs, StellarX pays all network fees due to its unique consensus mechanism that does not require “work” or “stake.”
Given the increasingly complex regulatory environment, Stellar has built a flexible functionality to allow issuers, if they so desire, to impose KYC requirements before traders are able to access their tokens for trading.
Moving forward, StellarX has a number of additional functionalities planned, including multi-sig and non-XLM markets support.
XLM is currently ranked 6th in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens.
