On the 20th of April, Aphelion, a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange being built on the NEO blockchain announced the beta release of its desktop wallet (version v1.1.6).

Aphelion is building a P2P trading platform (DEX) that claims to “bring a wallet based peer-to-peer trading experience to cryptocurrency traders worldwide”. Aphelion’s solution aims to allow users to trade cryptocurrencies in a decentralized and trustless environment, through their Distributed Exchange Asset Ledger (D.E.A.L). Aphelion is a decentralized application (dApp) that uses APH tokens as its internal currency.

Aphelion will incentivise the use of its platform for investors and users with APH tokens. When APH tokens are spent during P2P trading, they will then be automatically re-distributed to all APH token holders; similar to the NEO/GAS relationship.

Aphelion is not hosted (centralized), as such, it never holds or stores tokens and claims to be “open source, community driven, and most important: decentralized!” All trades made through Aphelion will be done directly between users, either on-chain or cross-chain across different networks.

In future, Aphelion’s wallet will integrate with Aphelion’s DEX and Decentralized Exchange Asset Ledger and is currently compatible with any NEO NEP5 token. The wallet’s integration with Aphelion’s DEX will allow for peer-to-peer trading from wallet-to-wallet.

The features of Aphelion’s wallet can be seen below:

  • Real-time trading chart data
  • Integration with all NEP5 tokens
  • Customizable address book
  • Ledger integration for Windows and Linux, with Mac ledger support coming soon
  • Send and receive QR codes
  • Adjustable views for market performance

You can download Aphelion’s wallet from its Github page, which can be found here.

Aphelion’s have also released a video that showcases different features of the wallet and provides some insight as to how it will integrate with Alphelion’s exchange in future.
