Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency, DeFi, Stablecoin, xSigma, ZK International

PRESS RELEASE. xSigma Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of ZK International Group (NASDAQ:ZKIN), was launched in 2018 as a blockchain research and development lab to solve real-world infrastructure challenges. After two years of intensive research into smart contracts and other blockchain-based solutions, xSigma shifted its focus to decentralized finance, or defi, in an effort to bring unfettered open-source finance to individuals and businesses worldwide.

XSigma’s foray decentralized finance has come at an opportune time in the market’s evolution. Although defi burst onto the scene in 2020, it quickly became the fastest-growing segment of the blockchain industry. Despite this tremendous growth, defi isn’t without issues. Users of these protocols have complained about a faulty user experience, impermanent loss, pricing error and smart contract vulnerability. These myriad issues have cast defi in a negative light among mainstream institutional investors.

The xSigma defi protocol has been designed to solve the countless issues plaguing the market today. As the first defi project to be backed by a publicly-listed company, xSigma has been built to capture the true value of decentralized finance. XSigma’s first order of business will be to launch a decentralized stablecoin exchange that offers fair farming terms for liquidity providers and an intuitive user experience for traders.

Stablecoins have emerged as one of the largest markets in the cryptocurrency industry, providing investors with immediate liquidity, price stability and redeemability. By November 2020, the combined market capitalization of all stablecoins was over $24 billion. Hundreds of millions worth of stablecoins are exchanged each day–a figure that is expected to rise steadily as we enter the next phase of global adoption.

Despite the inherent benefits offered by stablecoins, the exchange market is dominated by a few big players. Curve’s dominant position has allowed it to get away with offering a poor user experience, opaque token distribution and complex governance and farming systems.

xSigma is building a stablecoin exchange from the user side, not the developer side. Through its proven technologies, the xSigma platform prioritizes user experience by offering a simplified interface that appeals to both crypto veterans and new traders. XSigma’s team is implementing new innovations in the stablecoin exchange market, including a revamped reward structure. The platform will burn SIG tokens with exchange fees, effectively pushing up demand for the governance token while also capping supply in the same manner as Bitcoin’s 21 million-unit hard cap.

XSigma will accomplish these goals through the dedication of its award-winning and highly reputable team. The team has been assembled to not only deliver a state-of-the-art project, but to bring a new level of legitimacy and transparency to the defi ecosystem.

The xSigma team is led by Alex Lebed, a software engineer formerly of Facebook, Amazon and 1Inch. Alex is also the founder of Stableunit.org and the prizewinner of ethNY (awards from Binance labs, Wyre, Matic), ethBoston and ethDenver hackathons.

He is aided by Kamal Obbad, a Harvard graduate and former Google engineer who was featured in Forbes 30 Under 30 in healthcare.

Daniel Garay is an xSigma project manager who used to work at Ripple and Google.

The soon-to-be-launched xSigma stablecoin exchange will bring a new level of transparency, accountability and user experience to the defi industry. The project’s dedicated team of engineers, software developers and project managers are committed to delivering the project over the next three years. In the meantime, continue to expect major updates on the evolution of xSigma DeFi.
