ShapeShift Cryptocurrency Exchange Launches FOX Token for New Trading Scheme
Helen Partz's original article for cointelegraph.com reduced by 45%
Switzerland-based crypto exchange ShapeShift has launched zero-fee trading and its loyalty token FOX. ShapeShift founder and CEO Erik Voorhees announced the news on Twitter Nov. 20, noting that zero-commission trading on the platform is enabled by the newly released FOX token.
"The model is simple: hold FOX & you trade at a 0% commission rate. If not, you trade at our retail rate. You don't spend or lose the FOX tokens to get the benefit.
Just hodl." Each FOX token grants $10 of free trading volume every 30 days. Voorhees also stated that the new feature is not a temporary offer, emphasizing that zero-commission crypto trading will now be granted perpetually on ShapeShift. Instead, ShapeShift plans to sell its FOX tokens to new clients in exchange for perpetual free trading services if the model eventually succeeds.
As a result of the zero-fee trading launch, Voorhees expects a 30% surge in the number of ShapeShift trading accounts. Zero-fee cryptocurrency trading is not a new concept.
