Switcheo has announced it will be hosting a two-week trading competition using Alchemint’s SDUSD stable coin. Prior to the competition, the decentralized exchange (DEX) will undergo scheduled maintenance, which will include addition of six new stable coin pairings.

In November of 2018, Switcheo launched the Callisto update and added the functionality to trade Ethereum ERC-20 tokens on the exchange. The next month, Alchemint launched the NEO ecosystem’s first stable coin, SDUSD, where it first listed on the Switcheo DEX.

Switcheo will be adding two NEP-5 (SWTH/SDUSD, SDS/SDUSD) and four ERC-20 (ETH/PAX, DAI/PAX, USDC/PAX, MKR/PAX) stable coin pairings to its exchange.  The pairings can be read about at the link below:

In preparation of the new listings, Switcheo will be down for scheduled maintenance on Monday, January 14th, from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm (UTC +8).
