With growing acceptance, cryptocurrencies are rallying to higher highs. In fact, days after Visa announced it could settle transactions with digital currencies, the crypto market surpassed a $2 trillion market valuation for the first time. Showing no signs of slowing, the digital currency boom has also been beneficial for include TechX Technologies Inc.’s (CSE:TECX) (OTC:TECXF)(FRA:C0B1) Catalx.io, BIGG Digital Assets Inc. (CSE:BIGG)(OTC:BBKCF), Voyager Digital Ltd. (CSE:VYGR)(OTC:VYGVF), Banxa Holdings Inc. (TSXV:BNXA)(OTC:BNXAF), and Marathon Digital Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA).
“The milestone comes less than three months after it surpassed $1 trillion in overall value on January 7,” reports Newsweek, adding that, “Institutional and retail investors have flocked to the cryptocurrency market since the start of the year, analysts said, pushing many blockchain backers to encourage others to join the massive movement into decentralized finance.”
Look at TechX Technologies Inc., for example
To date, the company has raised a million dollars, invested in Canada’s premier cryptocurrency exchange, the Catalyx Exchange, and announced two LOIs to acquire two cryptocurrency businesses. In addition, Catalyx launched FastBitCash.ca, a platform that offers the fastest Bitcoin purchase and withdrawal in Canada.
Most recently, the company announced that its portfolio company, Catalyx Exchange is listing its Canadian Stablecoin, CADX on the Bittrex Global exchange. Bittrex is one of the world’s top 10 cryptocurrency exchanges in terms of liquidity and provides the widest selection of cryptocurrencies.
CatalX, which is Canada’s premier cryptocurrency exchange with over 40+ Altcoins available for purchase, launched its Canadian dollar fiat-backed stablecoin CADX in 2020 through a partnership with Seattle-based fintech company Stably. Every CADX token is fully-backed and redeemable for $1 Canadian dollar, held in an audited account managed by Prime Trust, a Nevada-chartered trust company who is the official regulated trustee and CVC administrator for CADX. CADX is powered by Stably’s ERC20 smart contract technology, which has been audited by leading US-based blockchain security firm, QuantStamp.
“We are beyond excited to become the first Canadian dollar-backed stablecoin to be listed on one of the world’s top 10 crypto exchanges,” said TechX CEO Jae Park.”The listing of the CADX coin on Bittrex is great news not only for the company, but for crypto traders across the globe who want more options to choose from.” CatalX and Bittrex first partnered in 2018 to launch the Catalyx Exchange and provide a solution for Canadian customers who wanted more selection for digital assets, but on a secure, reliable platform in Canada.
