Bitfinex Launches Ethereum-Based Decentralized Crypto Exchange Ethfinex


Bitfinex, one of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency exchanges, has officially launched Ethfinex Trustless, an Ethereum-based decentralized exchange (DEX).

According to a recent announcement, Ethfinex is designed to be completely trustless, meaning that there are no sign-ups, registration or KYC requirements, allowing investors to trade completely anonymously via direct connections to Ledger and MetaMask without centralized order books.

Over the next two weeks, Ethfinex will require users to hold at least 1 Nectar token (NEC) in their Ethereum wallet in order to trade. This will allow the company to initially monitor user activity to provide support and address any platform bugs.

The initial roll-out will feature trading pairs for Ethereum (ETH), OmiseGo (OMG), and 0x (ZRX), and the company will quickly add 40+ tokens including Dai pairs after this testing period.

The price of NEC is currently up 7.65% on the news and is currently ranked 14th in the AltDex Exchange Token Index (ALTEXC), a benchmark index for the industry’s leading exchange tokens.
