As the crypto market continues to surge, new traders continue to enter the market on a daily basis. One of the first questions that new traders have is where should they trade crypto. While there are countless options for buying and selling digital assets, traders need to exercise extreme caution and perform due diligence to avoid scam exchanges as well as places that have limited or no volume. While the main platforms such as Coinbase, Binance, and Bittrex will always have significant volume, their fees are known to be on the expensive side. AAX, a next-generation cryptocurrency exchange with the lowest futures fees in the world, represents a compelling alternative that traders should consider.
A few of the most important issues to consider when deciding whether to use an exchange are the number of users and the volume. On August 7, AAX announced that in a little over two weeks, the exchange doubled its user base bringing the grand total of registered users to over 200,000. At this rate, AAX may surpass the million mark later this year which would be an incredible achievement and is most certainly due to a variety of factors including extremely low fees and revolutionary technology.
When AAX decided to build its platform, it set out to meet the demands of both institutional and retail investors. In order to achieve that goal, the exchange operates at the highest possible standard in terms of compliance, transparency, and performance. Performance is especially important when trying to meet the demands of institutional traders as they often demand the crème de la crème. This is why AAX decided to utilize LSEG Technology’s Millenium Exchange matching engine making it the first cryptocurrency exchange to do so. This the same technology that is used by traditional markets such as the London Stock Exchange and Borsa Italiana, both of which now cater to cryptocurrency traders.
In addition to the above two major exchanges, LSEG provides solutions to over 40 traditional capital markets around the world and now, with AAX, is powering a cryptocurrency exchange as well. This is a breakthrough achievement and a major milestone. As cryptocurrency continues to mature in terms of number of participants and total market capitalization, it is imperative that the technology continues to operate at the highest possible level to match the demand that is coming. LSEG will certainly be up to the task.
One Stop Shop for Trading
As most of us traders are aware, we often have to use multiple trading platforms in order to fulfill all of our trading needs. We have to use one platform for spot trading, another for futures, and one more if we need OTC trading. Fortunately, AAX ends that need for multiple platforms as it is truly a one stop shop that fulfills all of one’s trading needs.
With regards to spot trading, AAX offers over 60 different trading pairs including the extremely popular USDT-settled BTC contracts. AAX offers ultra-low latency with execution speed of under 200 micro-seconds and maximum liquidity due to active market makers that provide a stable supply of digital assets at competitive prices.
One area where AAX really shines is with futures trading. This is an area that is especially attractive to institutional traders but is quickly catching on with retail traders. One major advantage of trading futures with AAX is that the contracts do not expire thanks AAX’s perpetual contracts. With most futures contracts, traders only have a set amount of time to profit. AAX’s perpetual contracts give the trader maximum flexibility in deciding when to exit the market. If that wasn’t enough, traders can also get 100x leverage on their positions when they’re feeling especially confident about the direction of the market.
The crypto markets in the midst of a major bull run thanks to Ethereum and the rest of the DeFi tokens. These huge trading gains are bringing in more and more active crypto traders who will need to find a fast, inexpensive, and secure exchange to do their trading. From my point of view, AAX is as good as they come. Everything that a trader could possibly need such as liquidity, inexpensive trading fees, institutional-grade technology, and variety of products available are as good as they get at AAX exchange.
Blockchain technology outshines Bitcoin and Gold during global pandemic
As the popularity of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin begins to level up with investments made in metals such as Gold, together they have both made significant advantages for investors who have taken a leap to invest in them.
However, thanks to the pandemic and the dynamic shift in investing and the economy, many investors have seen fluctuating losses and gains thanks to the uncertainty of the current business world.
Many investors that backed companies who have exposure to blockchain technology have seen an approximate amount of 54% return on investments over the past year. This is even after considering how hard the global tech market and companies have been hit since the beginning of the pandemic.
What is blockchain technology?
Blockchain technology was first introduced as a supportive technology for Bitcoin. A blockchain is a simple, unchangeable and un-hackable digital ledger that holds transactions in little blocks attached to a chain. The transaction is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of systems on the blockchain, making it available for everyone on the network to see.
Each block in the chain contains various transactions which are recorded on the participant ledger every time a transaction takes place. The database is decentralised and is managed by multiple participants known as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
Although blockchain technology was birthed from Bitcoin and was widely adopted for the use of cryptocurrencies, the way it works and its security has made…

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
