Decentralized Crypto Exchange Switcheo Adds USD-Pegged Trading for NEO
— Switcheo (@SwitcheoNetwork) December 27, 2018
According to a recent announcement, Switcheo has started by listing NEO/SDUSD and plans to roll-out more trading pairs for tokens which have strong liquidity. SDUSD is a smart contract-based stablecoin that is issued by Alchemint on the NEO blockchain and carries a 1:1 peg with the USD.
As part of the SDUSD launch, trading pairs for GAS and SWTH have been halted and will be removed entirely January 3.
This news comes roughly a month after Switcheo listed 19 new ERC-20 tokens after launching its Callisto protocol update for interoperability a week prior. The launch of Callisto made Switcheo the first non-custodian exchange to support both the NEO and Ethereum blockchains.
Switcheo’s SWTH token is currently down 17.3% to $0.004037, giving it a market cap of $2.1 million.
