John McAfee, who is renowned in the cryptocurrency space for his bold and often wild words, has kept his word with regards to his decentralized exchange. The McAfeeDEX will be integrating Tron come November 8.
McAfee has always spoken with passion about the power that cryptocurrencies have to free people from financial ties, and in this, has taken stabs at centralized exchanges. This led to the former antivirus mogul to launch his own decentralized exchange.
The McAfeeDEX launched recently, and as it continues to grow, it is adding Tron, which will both be a boost for the exchange and for the 11th biggest cryptocurrency by market cap. The announcement came via a Twitter post from McAfee.
The McAfeeDEx is supposed to be the answer to the centralized exchange problem with the man in charge of it admitting it has been a project that has been in the works for over a year now.
About a month ago, McAfee first hinted about the integration of Tron onto his platform. He also explained that the DEX would be all Ethernet-based tokens.
“Decentralized. Distributed. Open source. No listing fees. No personal information. 0.25% taker fees. No maker fees. No deposits. Smart contract assurance – trustless. All Ethernet based tokens. EOS, Neo, and more coming soon.” McAfee tweeted.
He followed this up with a hint towards TRX listing, which actually had a significant effect on the price of the token, seeing it spike relatively well to the rumors. Now, the rumors have come good – although Tron has not shown much more action on this.
Tron will see this as a boost themselves, even though the McAfeeDEX is still a small exchange. However, they have been in the news a fair bit in recent days with a so-called partnership with Samsung being Inked.
Justin Sun took to Twitter to stir up some hype about a mystery partnership, which turned out to be that Tron would be available on the Samsung Blockchain Keystore. Still, the news is rather positive for Tron, and they will be glad that they can keep riding different waves of adoption for their token.
