The company has not made a public announcement about the deal, but information about it was obtain from anonymous sources.
Earlier this year, 0x Labs closed a seed round led by Alphabet. This round was part of its efforts to create a better system for trading in cryptocurrencies. The funding round was strategic in nature, with many of its investors already having commercial relationships with the company. The startup plans to expand its services to traditional hedge funds and large financial services firms.
Launch Crypto Currency Exchange
0x Labs, an entrepreneur behind the Web3 exchange infrastructure, has secured $70 million in funding from Greylock and other investors. The venture also received support from OpenSea and Coinbase. Will Warren and Amir Bandeali are 0x Labs’ CEO and CTO, respectively. The exchange is schedule to launch on June 22, 2020.
0x’s goal is to become the default backer for token transactions. To do this, the company is allocating new funds to several projects, including a matcha token search engine and support for additional blockchains. The company is also expanding its service to more decentralized exchanges, including Ethereum and Solana.
0x’s team is focused on building a decentralize, multi-chain exchange. The 0x Protocol enables peer-to-peer trade of assets across blockchains. The protocol’s infrastructure is easy to integrate, enabling developers to quickly build an in-app marketplace for digital collectibles.
0x also has plans to expand its peer-to-peer NFT trading protocol. The company is launching an exchange with 50 percent lower transaction fees than its competitors. Currently, 0x handles $1.5 billion in weekly transaction volume. By comparison, Uniswap processes almost $50 billion per week.
Decentralized Exchange Networks
The 0x protocol uses relayers to broadcast orders across decentralized exchange networks. The system also allows users to broadcast orders to the network. Although the relayers don’t execute trades, they can help by providing liquidity to other users. They also help to reduce gas costs. By integrating this protocol, 0x hopes to build an innovative cryptocurrency exchange with a future-proof blockchain.
0x is a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange with an open-source code. The platform aims to help investors and traders trade cryptocurrency without the need to use a central exchange. The platform has an open-source code and is free for anyone to use. 0x provides significant long-term potential.
The company has raised $70 million in Series B funding led by Greylock Partners. Other investors include Pantera, Jump Capital, and Jared Leto. The company also raised $24 million through its ZRX token sale. The 0x platform was launched in October 2016, and it has a goal to make the blockchain the primary trading hub for cryptocurrency. However, it must also reduce the costs of operations for end users.
