The Singapore cryptocurrency exchange Switcheo has announced over the holiday period that it now supports the Alchemist launched SDUSD stablecoin.
The Dollar-pegged coin was created to hold the value of $1.00 and is locked to NEO.
SDUSD/NEO Pairing Debuts on Singapore Crypto Exchange:
Switcheo announced via a press release that Alchemint’s smart contract based SDUSD coin will debut on the Singapore cryptocurrency exchange and will be the first fiat-pegged pairing with NEO. 1 SDUSD will be stabilized with $1.00 USD through the collateralization of NEO smart contracts.
Switcheo’s support of the SDUSD/NEO pairing is available right away. Here is an extract from the statement:
SDUSD will be open for deposits on 27 Dec, 11.30am SGT (UTC+8) and trading will commence on 27 Dec, 12.00pm SGT (UTC+8).
The exchange is looking to create a DEX network that offers cross-chain swapping features across a plethora of blockchain networks. Their main goal is to offer a trading experience that merges a world-class experience with trust and transparency on a decentralized platform.
Alchemint Finally Launched SDUSD
Alchemint is known as a stabilization system for cryptocurrencies that utilizes NEO’s public chain. The launch of its dollar-pegged SDUSD token was planned for earlier in December. However, due to numerous delays, their stablecoin was finally released during the holiday period.
Alchemint uses DLT technology to offer a high-performance virtual currency that allows users to mortgage digital assets and manage the collateral values by utilizing smart contracts. You can now mortgage your NEO against the SDUSD, although holders will be expected to pay a 2% annual fee as an issuing fee if you want to cash back your SDUSD.
Alchemint plans to offer a transparent stablecoin issuance system that is open and robust.
The announcement from the Switcheo Exchange is great news for the evolving Singapore cryptocurrency market that recently updated its ICO guidelines that are expected to increase interest in the local market and to raise capital for fledgling ICOs.
