StellarX Decentralized Exchange, Running with Stellar (XLM), Launched Offering Many Crypto Trading Options

The StellarX decentralized exchange, based on the Stellar (XLM) cryptocurrency, announced the public launch of its exchange platform and the reimbursement of commissions generated from transactions. In its blog, the startup explained that the open source platform seeks to position itself as a “real link with fiduciary currencies” for the purchase of cryptos or vice versa.

The aspect that stands out most at the start of StellarX is that the company will reimburse the commissions between the participants of the exchanges.

“Using StellarX costs nothing. We do not charge any fees and even reimburse all network costs, something that no other decentralized exchange can match. All the time you have exclusive control of your assets, so whenever there is interest, it is yours,” stated StellarX.

To achieve this, Christian Rudder, co-creator of StellarX, explained that the operations and orders are running on the native Stellar (XLM) cryptocurrency. Rudder also recalled that Stellar (XLM) consensus mechanism requires neither “work” nor “participation,” so it does not use user capital to operate. “Therefore, we don’t need its capital to work either,” the developer emphasized.

That is how they plan to apply the correct protocol to digitize the respective fields.

On that occasion, it was reported that the first batch of users would enjoy zero commissions on the purchase and sale of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

Contradictory information about the possible partnership between Facebook and the Stellar (XLM) project team was published in the media on August 10th. Shortly after the publication, on the Business Insider portal, of unofficial information that Facebook was meeting with the Stellar project’s team to work together, a statement emerged from a Facebook spokesperson who denied the news.

Facebook denied the partnership with Stellar (XLM) team, but it manages a blockchain technology team

The news about the potential partnership between Facebook and Stellar (XLM) coincided with the announcement that the research leader of the Facebook blockchain team, David Marcus, is leaving his position on the board of directors of the Coinbase exchange house to devote himself full-time to the project of the company led by Mark Zuckerberg.

Marcus is the former director of Messenger and has been leading a small technology development team on Facebook since last May. On this point, some commented that the decision to leave Coinbase might be due to the need to avoid a conflict of interest between the two companies.

At the same time, the Facebook blockchain team has been consolidating itself in recent months, by the incorporation of personnel trained in the area, among them Evan Chang, appointed director of blockchain engineering last July.

Stellar (XLM), Cardano (ADA), And OmiseGO (OMG) Skyrocketed Thanks To Good News

The cryptocurrencies market showed yesterday a general increase that has led to different altcoins such as Stellar (XLM), Cardano (ADA), and OmiseGO (OMG), to score significant gains. The total crypto market reached a value of more than $296 billion on Wednesday, according to CoinMarketCap.

In order to know the causes that are generating this behavior, two types of factors come into play. The first is the global aspects of the ecosystem itself, which include the good times the market is experiencing and the momentum it has taken over the past few days. The second relates to each particular crypto and the announcements that have been made over the past week that have had a positive impact.

Stellar (XLM) is Sharia-approved

Stellar (XLM), the sixth most valuable currency by market capitalization received a certification on Tuesday to use DLT technology in Islamic financial institutions. The trading volumes in the hours following the announcement were over $200 million, which led to a rise of 27% in XLM price. However, at the time of this writing, Stellar (XLM) trades at $0.30, scoring a 1.56% increase in the last 24 hours.

Cardano (ADA) might get on Coinbase

The market’s momentum also boosted Cardano (ADA), which experienced a 13% jump on Wednesday, although it already shows a slight correction, and is now trading at $0.18 increasing by about 2.1% in the last 24 hours.

The increase, which is still going on, could be due to Coinbase’s announcement that it is considering adding Cardano (ADA) to its platform, along with Zcash (ZEC), Stellar (XLM), Basic Attention Token (BAT), and 0x (ZRX).

OmiseGO (OMG) teamed up with McDonald’s in Thailand

In the case of OmiseGO, which rose 5% yesterday, the cause of its rise could be the announcement made by the CEO of McDonald’s in Thailand, Hester Chew, who talked about the successful conclusion of the partnership with the OmiseGO platform. The performance of this currency has been very uneven over the last day and is currently showing a slight correction.

As you may recall, McDonald’s subsidiary in Thailand reached an agreement last September establishing the use of the cryptocurrency payment service provided by OmiseGO.

OMG is now trading at $8.04, dropping by about 1% in the last 24 hours.

In short, yesterday, only good news surrounded a few of the most appreciated altcoins in the cryptocurrency market, including Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA).
