zDEX: World’s first Zerocoin based private DEX.

By Ronak_Sunara - 2018-11-13

Private Instant Verified Transaction or PIVX is a privacy coin based on proof-of-stake algorithm which is forked from DASH. The main aim of PIVX is to be an easy to use digital cash, thus reducing transaction time and fees while maintaining high end privacy and security. PIVX can be completely anonymous, thus preventing blockchain analysis from revealing recipients and senders.

zDEX Exchange Platform

PIVX project lead not long ago announced to launch private decentralized cryptocurrency exchange in November which will remove the need for AML, KYC or any ID-verification. This exchange is called zDEX and it is the world’s first private in-wallet decentralized exchange which makes use of zerocoin that utilizes a proof of stake cryptocurrency. zDEX will run on the masternode tier of the PIXV network.

zDEX and PIVX project lead s3v3nh4cks says:

True DEX’s are important as they should require no AML/KYC and the functionality is controlled by the code and not by personal preference or government restrictions. I wanted to create zDEX because a decentralised exchange dedicated to privacy did not exist yet.

zDEX supports BTC, LTC, DASH, PART, ZEC, and BCH presently and plans on adding more coins to the exchange soon. Trade fees at zDEX is set at 0.25% which is split between buying and selling parties. The fees collected will be divided among zDEX team and the masternodes securing the network. All currencies are initially paired with PIVX though plans for future include trading between all supported coins in case of which zerocoin phase will happen autonomously behind the scenes.

Users don’t need to undergo in-wallet registration necessarily for using the exchange platform. To add additional layer of security and anonymity to exchange platform, coins are not stored in servers.
