Today, Crypto.com announced it has listed STX, making the cryptocurrency immediately available for convenient purchase and trading by non-U.S. persons through its highly-rated mobile app.
Crypto.com is on a ‘mission to accelerate the world’s transition to cryptocurrency’ and was founded on the idea that it is a basic human right to control one’s money. With features and products like their crypto-powered Visa card, fiat top-up options, and coin tracker with data on over 200 tokens, Crypto.com is giving users a number of exciting options when it comes to managing their crypto holdings right from their phone.
Stacks are used for registration of internet assets and may be consumed as fuel for smart contracts written in Clarity. As part of the anticipated Stacks 2.0 launch later this year, internet assets on the Stacks blockchain will anchor to Bitcoin. The interconnection of Stacks with Bitcoin provides a scalable foundation for a Web 3.0 rooted in the security of Bitcoin.
As we continue working to build this user-owned internet, increasing access to the Blockstack ecosystem and apps on the network requires increased access to Stacks. We’re excited Crypto.com is joining leading exchanges such as Binance, KuCoin, and HashKey Pro in making Stacks easily accessible and for the optionality this provides current and prospective STX holders.
We look forward to welcoming Crypto.com users to the Stacks ecosystem!
