As per the announcement, StellarX, which is the product of the new company created by Chain and Lightyear, offers similar user control to its Ethereum blockchain counterparts, along with IDEX and EtherDelta. But, as compared to DEXs, StellarX pays all the network fees because of its consensus mechanism which doesn’t require “work” or “stake.”
Why StellarX allows trading?
The most unique and awesome feature of new StellarX exchange is its real fiat on-ramp, a first of a decentralized platform. This can be achieved by using ACH transactions instantly from a U.S. bank account which links to the StellarX application. The exchange will add support for Euros, Philippine Pesos, Nigerian Naira, Chinese Yuan, Hong Kong Dollar, and the British Pound as soon as possible. The exchange will add in-app deposits/ withdrawals for these currencies as soon as their issuers support its standards.
StellarX expects to add a complete suite of forex stablecoins in the next few months. Also, the firm wants to provide its services to various countries around the globe. Its future goal is to provide bonds, stocks, real state, commodities, etc. along with essential currencies. However, all these assets require a lot of time and a proper system.
StellarX wants to provide transparency to both, traders as well as issuers. For trades, the firm wants that the tokenization to be controlled at the protocol layer from simple templates. StellarX has created a flexible functionality for issuers, in which they can impose KYC requirements before traders are able to access their tokens for trading.
