CALGARY, CANADA (June 01, 2020) — CatalX Exchange (CatalX), Canada’s premier digital asset trading exchange, today announced a strategic partnership with Stably Corporation (Stably), a leading FinTech company and developer of stablecoin technologies, to launch its Canadian Dollar fiat-backed stablecoin, CADX.
Developed to minimize the volatility associated with cryptocurrencies, the CADX stablecoin is collateralized and pegged to the Canadian Dollar. As part of this offering, CatalX incorporated Stably’s regulated stablecoin-as-a-service platform so that its users on the CatalX Exchange will be able to seamlessly convert Canadian Dollars into the CADX stablecoin.
“We are excited to partner with Stably to launch CADX on the CatalX Exchange,” stated Justin Kim, CEO of CatalX. “We understand the demand for regulated, asset-backed stablecoin for the Canada market, and believe this partnership with Stably’s technologies and processes will give our users the openness, transparency and value they seek for their digital assets.”
“As more and more stablecoin projects come into play, we’ll see more users moving towards projects that they have confidence in across multiple points,” stated Kory Hoang, Stably CEO. “The area where we excel is transparency, so we are very excited to partner with CatalX to bring our solution to Canada.”
“Stably helps companies leverage digital currency technologies without the hassles and complexities of dealing with an immature ecosystem,” added David Zhang, Stably CTO. “We tackle the hard technological and regulatory issues so companies can focus on delivering the most value to their customers while still gaining the benefits of new distribution channels and cost savings.”
After this initial launch period, CatalX and Stably aims to expand CADX into other exchange partners around the globe.
