Kinesis, the world’s leading gold and silver based monetary system, has listed the XDC coin on the Kinesis Exchange.
XDC will be tradeable against eight fiat pairs, including USD, GBP and EUR, alongside Kinesis’ native gold and silver based stable coins, KAU and KAG.
Users can instantly trade their XDC against physical gold or silver on the exchange to start earning a yield on their assets through Kinesis’ array of yield products.
XDC will be spendable on the Kinesis virtual card alongside the existing pool of cryptocurrencies available. The virtual card allows users to spend with instant conversion, in real-time, using cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and XDC alongside gold or silver at over 46 million locations globally.
XDC will also be available to trade on Kinesis ProKinesis’ professional cryptocurrency trading platform scheduled to release later this year.
The listing of XDC marks the first phase of the much-anticipated partnership between the XDC Foundation and Kinesis that was formed in February 2022.
The second phase of Kinesis’ collaboration with the XDC Foundation will begin with the development of an interoperable cross-chain bridge to Kinesis’ Stellar-based blockchain, enabling assets to be transferred seamlessly between the two ecosystems.
Billy Sebell, executive director of XDC Foundation, said,
“Congratulations to the Kinesis team on its integration with the XDC Network. We look forward to the next phase of cross-chain interoperability with the Kinesis blockchain, which will contribute to a robust and expandable blockchain ecosystem.”
This interoperability between the XDC and Stellar networks will also improve Kinesis’ blockchain infrastructure. It will enable KAU and KAG to be traded more efficiently across the cryptocurrency ecosystem and expand the global availability of assets.
Thomas Coughlin, chief executive officer of Kinesis, said,
“We are thrilled to open up Kinesis users to the benefits of the thriving XDC Network and integrate their cutting-edge solutions with our system.
“By listing XDC on our exchange, we can broaden our array of cryptocurrencies available to trade [while] further expanding the utility of our native gold and silver backed tokens, KAU and KAG. The very concept of bridging two ecosystems of such robust infrastructure and shared principles of sustainability is what fuels our partnership at its core.”
As the partnership progresses, Kinesis will continue to leverage the XDC Network’s scalable and secure blockchain infrastructure to bring greater network expansion, asset liquidity and interoperability to Kinesis users while bringing emerging technologies to the forefront of operations.
