Roundup: Regulatory Updates From around the World

While the team at OAX focuses on the decentralized space within the digital asset community, it’s only natural to see the landscape from a macro perspective, especially when it comes to an industry as sensitive, and at times controversial as ours. As an industry, nothing works in silo and headlines that affect adoption or ease of use could all impact how the market may be affected. …

April 2021 Community Update

Wow! What a start to Q2 it’s been for us!

We started the beginning of the month by announcing that the OAX token would be available as a wrapped BEP-20 token. Over the last few months, we’ve been exploring the opportunities of having our tokens available on additional exchanges as well, and while exploring the likes of UniSwap and SushiSwap, we felt that the market conversations of Binance Smart Chain were compelling enough for us to expand our options as well.

This, of course, was merely to set the scene for the things that would be…

Summary: OAX — IJS AMA Recap

It’s been awhile since we’ve done an AMA at OAX and we wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who participated this round! We were thrilled to be able to have IJS Technologies join us this time, and it was a great opportunity for the OAX community to learn more about their project, and why the OAX Foundation gave them the grant late last year.

The OAX team has been observing IJS’ progress over many months and we’ve been very excited with their development. Not only has the IJS team been making…

This week, we asked IJS Technologies to write a blog post about their last few months. With a grant announcement late last year and an upcoming AMA, we wanted the OAX community to learn more about the project: what it started as when we first spoke to them and how it has evolved over time post-grant.

When we first started learning about IJS’ project, we were impressed with their ideas of building an open-sourced DeFi based concept of token swaps and their dedication to decentralized governance resonated with the team. Here’s a peek at how things started (from their perspective)…

While our recent article explored the fluctuations of exchanges in the market and the key players in the space, it’s only natural that we’ve been spending a lot of our time monitoring the changes that have been happening in this space over the last year. Of course we’ve been hearing our community members who have been asking the team to explore additional listings and opportunities for various trading pairs as well.

But the question of where was a matter of huge debate for the team. The final call? Last week we announced that OAX will now have wrapped OAX tokens…

As March comes to a close, so does the first quarter of 2021. We continue on our rollercoaster of highs, dips and turns, so let’s take a look at some of the key headlines that marked the industry during the last three months.

Polkadot Updates

The team has had their eye on Polkadot for quite some time now, and changes in the market demonstrate how we’re not alone! The Polkadot team has been constantly making the headlines the last quarter. …

How DeXes and DeFi respond to an evolving industry

Liquidity is universally regarded as a good thing for trading assets on public markets. The deeper the liquidity pool, the better the trading economics for market participants; and the more liquidity there is, the more will come as more participants are attracted to the venue’s attractive economics. But it has a third quality: stickiness: the deeper it is, the harder rival venues will have to try to dislodge it — and the stickier the liquidity, the greater the exchange’s ability to scale and grow.

In a fast-pace environment such as the…

Staying Safe this Bull Run: Storage and Wallet Options

Every now and then it’s good to revisit the basics. Regardless of how we may see the recent market corrections, whether you’ve been involved in the industry for a long time, or you are just starting out, the opportunities to invest within this space means responsibility falls on each individual.

In the past we’ve often reminded our community members to be cautious of scammers and impersonators. Our team is constantly monitoring to ensure that any fake OAX accounts are dealt with swiftly and shut down as soon as possible.

Anyone paying attention to the digital asset market this month has been on one rollercoaster ride. Having reached its peak earlier this month of over $58,000, BTC then nearly lost 17% of its value earlier this week. Likewise, Ether hit an all time high, passing the $2000 mark before pulling back and crossing below the $1400 line.

January 2021 Community Update

Welcome to the beginning of 2021!

We begin with the recapping of a piece of news that we announced December 2020: a grant given to IJS Technologies for a community-driven open source DeFi swap platform. We never had an official grant platform where we call for yearly submissions etc, but as we’ve mentioned in the past, we love having conversations with different players and look for opportunities to work together while supporting this space. We followed up with our announcement to give a bit more color as to the type of projects we generally pay more…
