After months of development, we have finally put the finishing touches on our whitepaper! Traders, liquidity providers and casual blockchain observers can now learn about the inner workings of the xSigma DeFi protocol, its tokenomics and the value proposition behind our SIG tokens. Best of all, you don’t have to be a hardcore techie to read the document and grasp the key concepts.

The 17-pages document provides a digestible introduction to our protocol and what makes xSigma a cut above existing DeFi protocols. Ethereum transaction fees, governance, compliance, UI, high barrier to entry and false promises are just some of the DeFi pain-points we tackle in the whitepaper. …

What makes xSigma different from other AMMs is that it’s been optimized for stablecoins, with the goal of reducing slippage and preventing LPs from incurring impermanent loss, caused when the value of pooled token pairs fluctuates. This allows for greater profitability, both when trading and LP’ing.

Why a Stablecoin AMM?

Stablecoins played a relatively minor role in the 2017 crypto bull run, but this time around, they’re at the heart of it. The number of stablecoin trading pairs, both on CEXs and DEXs, has multiplied exponentially, and traders are now as likely to swap tokens using DAI, USDC, or USDT as they are to use ETH. …

You know what they say — the cryptocurrency market never sleeps. As Bitcoin raced towards new all-time highs over the weekend, xSigma Corporation was busy developing critical infrastructure for its forthcoming DeFi protocol. We’re proud to announce that, after several months of development, we have completed our smart contract!

With development out of the way, our smart contract will undergo extensive technology software audits to ensure the safety of funds and integrity of the entire system. Once audit is complete, we will be ready for launch.

The xSigma smart contract is a crucial step in building a truly decentralized marketplace for liquidity providers and traders. It also ensures a smooth transition for early adopters set to join the protocol in the first weeks after launch. As a refresh: xSigma is offering lucrative rewards to liquidity providers who test out the new DEX platform and provider feedback on the user experience. In exchange for their efforts, LPs can earn up to 2x rewards payable in the form of SIG tokens. …

Although many DeFi projects talk up the value proposition of their products, they often ignore their biggest selling point: The team.

Assessing the teams behind blockchain projects is one of the most important acts of due diligence an investor must take. Is the team credible? Do they have a proven track record? Can you trust them to deliver the quality product they’ve promised? Are they committed to the project over the long term?

It doesn’t matter how fancy the whitepaper is or how polished the website looks — without excellent people, projects are doomed to fail. …

xSigma was conceived as a community project whose success will hinge upon the support of its token-holders and liquidity providers (LPs). For that reason, we’ve put considerable thought into creating a rewards system that is fair to all participants, but which provides additional incentives to those who are first to utilize the advanced stablecoin DEX we’ve created. If you’re reading these words, that means you.

We’d like to welcome you to become a liquidity provider on xSigma, and we’ve got a sweet offer to seal the deal. As if the prospect of being the first to trial xSigma’s game-changing tech, which has the potential to shake up the DEX market, wasn’t enough, there are some tangible token rewards to be had. …
