Building upon last week’s exploration of Crypto Peggs, let’s now explore an example of a pegged coin and how the Tokenize Xchange platform seamlessly integrates and supports it.

Pegged Coin Spotlight: XSGD 

Introduction to XSGD

XSGD, issued by StraitsX, a licensed Major Payment Institution under the e-money issuance framework, is a stablecoin pegged to the Singapore Dollar, hence, 1 XSGD is equal to 1 Singapore Dollar. The strong backing for each XSGD comes from an equivalent reserve of Singapore Dollars, held and protected within the secure confines of a bank in Singapore.

The technological support of XSGD is anchored in the Ethereum and Zilliqa blockchains, which are renowned for their rapid processing abilities, expansive scalability, and economic efficiency. These attributes are leveraged to facilitate XSGD transactions, ensuring a seamless trading experience that harnesses the advanced features of these blockchain platforms.

XSGD, similar to other cryptocurrencies, enables quicker and safer transactions through the blockchain, all while charging much less in fees than conventional money transfer methods. As a stablecoin, XSGD offers the unique benefit of stability, allowing you to use it just like regular money but without worrying about sudden changes in its value.

You can also purchase, keep, and trade XSGD through the Tokenize Xchange platform. Here’s the process:
