Atomex Hybrid Exchange Becomes The First To Launch kUSD-XTZ Pair

Atomex, the hybrid exchange which also allows for atomic swaps is launching the kUSD-XTZ pair. Users will also be able to trade kUSD against BTC, ETH, LTC, USDT and TZBTC.

Atomex & kUSD

The algorithmic stablecoin Kolibri (kUSD) launched on the 18th of February. Today, the following trading pairs have become available on Atomex. From this moment onwards, you can trade kUSD with XTZ, BTC, ETH, LTC, USDT and TZBTC. 


Besides the wallet function, Atomex also enables Atomic swaps. Atomic swaps enable you to trade cryptocurrency in a decentralized way, without any dependency on a third party. All trades are made through a smart contract.

An interesting fact about atomic swaps is that you can make atomic swaps between different blockchains. So, you can trade BTC for XTZ on Atomex for example. You do pay transaction costs on two blockchains though in that case.

Buying tzBTC with XTZ would make more sense in that case, since you would only pay transaction costs for the transaction of tzBTC and XTZ on the Tezos blockchain, which is a lot cheaper.

Atomex is a HD Wallet that supports XTZ (Tezos), BTC, ETH, LTC (Litecoin), the Stablecoin USDT (Tether), and also wrapped BTC on Tezos (tzBTC) and on Ethereum (wBTC).

Atomic Swaps are made possible through Atomex’ Hybrid DEX that works by applying on-chain implementation, based on hashed timelock smart-contracts on each blockchain that is involved in the swap.

This means that you can exchange assets in an anonymous and secure way without the need to trust a third party.

Atomex is non-custodial, which means that you own your private keys. There is no centralized database that stores the keys of Atomex users. Your keys are stored on your device, encrypted, using AES-256. (256 bits Advanced Encryption Standard.)

Because you own your keys, transactions are made directly from your blockchain address to the atomic swap contract during a deal.

No additional fees

You don’t pay any additional fees while making an atomic swap. You only pay the transaction costs for executing the smart contract. Atomex is different from DEXes like Dexter and Uniswap in that way.

Atomex has a regular order book like on a centralized exchange. It doesn’t utilize an AMM (Automated Market Maker) like on Dexter.

Neither Atomex, nor market makers, charge a percentage fee of the total amount of your transaction.

Baking Bad 

Atomex is developed by the “Baking Bad” team, which is well known in the Tezos community as an active contributor to the developer ecosystem and for its website where you can find the rankings of Tezos bakers (Bakers are stakers that run a Tezos node to which XTZ holders can delegate their XTZ and earn staking rewards.)

DeFi platform Youves launches synthetic Gold tracker token 

uXAU is a synthetic token, which means that the value of gold is tracked by the token and the token itself is not backed by any actual gold. The value is backed by other collateral, in this case Tezos-based Tether (USDt). USDT is tethered to the US dollar, the idea in theory being that you can trade 1 Tether for 1 US dollar, regardless of market conditions.
