MXC Exchange Review: Leading The DeFi Charge

Established in 2018 and based in Singapore, MXC Exchange (Also known as MoCha) has quickly risen to become one of the largest one-stop cryptocurrency service providers in Asia. MXC Exchange provides users with spot, margin, contract, leveraged ETF, index products, contract, PoS staking and OTC services.

With the recent DeFi hype, many users have been flocking to DEXes in search of new DeFi projects, hoping to find the next 10x-er. MXC Exchange has alleviated the stresses of navigating through decentralized exchanges and has had a recent surge of new users and trading volume on the platform due to their initiative in often being the first to list up and coming DeFi tokens. In August, most of the DeFi projects that were firstly listed by MXC Exchange (such as LUNA, PNK, COMP, LEND) had immediate surges in price action. In addition, each of these token listings on MXC Exchange was closely followed by a listing on the other three major exchanges Binance, OKEx, and Huobi. Over 20 of the DeFi projects that were firstly listed by MXC Exchange were listed on the other three major exchanges.

On top of all this, MXC Exchange has obtained regulatory compliance licenses in many countries, most notably: USA, Canada, and Australia, and is able to conduct all digital asset services in these countries.

Features of MXC Exchange:

MX Token

Users can invest in the MXC Exchange ecosystem by buying and holding their native platform token MX token. Token holders can enjoy a series of rights and interests through holding the token:

  • Appreciation of the MX token asset

  • Return of platform revenue

  • Voting on the platform

  • Invest in MXC Exchange SpaceM Launchpad projects

Assessment Zone & Innovation Board

Up-and-coming, newer tokens with a strong community will go through an initial 60 day assessment period in the ‘Assessment Zone’, in which the token listed can be traded. At the end of the 60 day period, the token will be automatically hidden and removed from the ‘Assessment Zone’. If the trading volume and activity of the token were considerable and the community support was strong. The token can then be transferred over to the ‘Innovation Board’, where the token can continue to be traded. After a certain period in the ‘Innovation Board’, the project can be transferred over to the ‘Main Board’, where the token is officially listed on the MXC Exchange to be traded.

There are currently over 350+ active token markets on MXC Exchange. In August 2020, the average daily trading volume was $300m+ (earlier in 2020, MXC Exchange saw daily volumes in the billions.)

Our Final Thoughts

MXC Exchange is backed by a very strong founding team of senior practitioners in the blockchain industry and specialists from Wall St. They are a very user-oriented exchange, with the use of their MX Token that is the fuel in the MXC Exchange ecosystem.

The user interface of the exchange is very clean and easy-to-use. Perhaps the thing we love MOST about MXC Exchange is they are on top of the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) wave and constantly adding support for DeFi tokens. The exchange currently offers trading for 17 of the top 20 DeFi Tokens, and are often the first out of all major exchanges to list up-and-coming DeFi projects through their Assessment Zone & Innovation Board.

Currently, there have been no security breaches of MXC Exchange and it is very safe, and secure to transfer your tokens to the exchange for trading.

With the upcoming release of DC/EP in China, it looks like regulations are beginning to open up to cryptocurrencies in Asia in the future. Should things change for the better regarding cryptocurrency policy in Asia, we can see MXC Exchange quickly rising to become one of the largest exchanges not only in Asia, but the world!
