Traders pay 0% commission on Market Sell Orders through June 25

February 25, 2021– The global cryptocurrency exchange STEX announced today it is recognizing its 4th Anniversary by offering traders 0% trading fees on USDC market sell orders through June 25.  Called “Stable Spring,” the promotion recognizes the 4th Anniversary of STEX, which was launched in April 2018.

“Offering 0% commission on USDC market sell orders is a great way for us to reward our traders for their support of STEX,” STEX Founder Vadym Kurylovych (VK) said. “Over the past four years, we’ve seen tremendous growth in our user base and trading activity. The support of traders is key and we are thanking them for making STEX a success.”

STEX launched its USDC market pairs earlier in February as an alternative investment for traders looking to diversify their portfolios through additional stablecoin trading pairs: (BTC/USDC, ETH/USDC, LTC/USDC). USDC wallets will work on two layers: ETH and Stellar, with a Solana layer to be added soon.  STEX users can make USDC deposits, trades and also buy USDC with cards through its exchange.

Launched in September 2018, USDC is a stablecoin that is pegged to the US Dollar at a 1:1 basis. Each USDC coin is backed by $1 US that is held in reserve in a mix of cash and short-term treasury bonds. It is currently the number 12 token with a market capitalization of more than $8 Billion US.

“We’re always working to add trading pairs to our exchange that provide our users with the options they want in the coin market,” VK said.  “Keeping traders on the leading edge of the cryptocurrency market remains a top priority of us as we expand the offerings at STEX.”
