0x Coin has seen a small price decline totalling 1.26% over the past 24 hours of trading. The cryptocurrency is currently exchanging hands at a price around $0.8487 after seeing a significant 22% price increase over the course of the past 30 trading days.
The ERC-20 based cryptocurrency has been designed to help to facilitate decentralised exchanges in their mechanisms. It leverages an off-chain orderbook and therefore requires no trading fees at the same time being able to offer trustless transactions. It is a system that facilitates decentralised trading rather than a decentralised exchange itself.
The cryptocurrency has recently enjoyed the addition of their project to the Coinbase exchange, on of the world’s leading exchanges, seeing a 22% price surge after its addition.
However, the addition has come under much scrutiny as infestations have led to the conclusion amongst collusion between 0x and Coinbase. For example, 3 out of 5 advisors for 0x used to be Coinbase employees, leading to many to speculate that some may have benefited from the 0x addition with the additional information before the addition.
0x is currently ranked in 24th position in terms of overall market cap across the entire industry. It currently holds a total market cap value of $463 million after the 14 month old coin suffers a 26% price drop over the past 90 trading days. The token is still trading at a value that is 64% lower than its all time high price.
