ICON (ICX) Joins the List of 150+ Cryptocurrencies Available on Changelly
ICX token, a major part of the decentralized
network ICON, has become available for instant swaps with the other 150+
cryptocurrencies in Changelly’s catalog.
Changelly allows its users to buy ICX with fiat currencies, as well as to swap it to other cryptocurrencies using the fixed rate feature. Fixed rates allow users to alleviate the risk of volatile market price fluctuations when buying cryptocurrency, which is especially important in light of the current economic instability.
ICON aims to become a bridge between various
digital organizations with different infrastructures, allowing them to use
transactions and exchange information without a need for intermediaries,
significantly increasing the speed and decreasing the costs of such
communications. In addition to that, its main token, ICX, allows token holders
to participate in on-chain governance and actively contribute to ICON’s growing
ecosystem. Lastly, ICX can be used to pay for services in the real world. The
listing on Changelly should add to the trading volume of the token itself, as
well as make it easier to use.
Eric Benz, Changelly CEO, is optimistic about a new addition to Changelly’s catalog. This is what he has to say about having ICON onboard:
“ICON has been a project I have kept a very close eye on and believe in their mission of bridging both traditional finance and crypto. Changelly is very happy to welcome ICON into the family of assets supported and now ICX can reach an even larger global audience.”
Foundation Council Member of ICON, Min Kim, also believes that listing on Changelly will improve ICX performance:
“We’re excited to have ICON’s native token, ICX, on Changelly’s market-leading platform. Many people know ICON as the top Korean blockchain project and it’s great to collaborate with another leading company in the space.”
He also hinted at further improving ICON user
experience through the usage of Changelly’s API: “We are excited about
potentially incorporating Changelly’s API into some of our products like ICONex
to provide an even better user experience.”
Founded in 2017, the ICON Foundation leads the
promotion and development of the ICON project, one of the largest open-source
blockchain software projects in the world. The project aims to build a
decentralized network that allows digital organizations with different
infrastructures to communicate and transact with one another without
