Phew, that’s a lot of new crypto on the scene. Let’s talk about SNX & ZRX .

Say hello to SNX

Meet SNX. It was founded in 2018 by Kain Warwick and is one of several DeFi cryptocurrencies on the Ethereum blockchain. SNX allows users to mint new crypto assets that imitate both crypto and traditional assets.

What does it do?

SNX carries out its services purely through code, meaning no financial intermediaries are needed. It uses a process called collateralisation in order to generate new assets. Users will need to purchase the SNX cryptocurrency in order to create and collateralise an asset, known as “synths”.

Say hello to ZRX

Meet ZRX. ZRX was founded by Will Warren and Amir Bandeali in 2016. It aims to allow users to create custom crypto asset markets without the need for financial intermediaries.

What does it do?

ZRX is one of many DeFi protocols on the Ethereum blockchain. Users can use this protocol to tokenise assets, as well as buy and sell tokens running on Ethereum. There are two types of users in a ZRX market:

Makers – users who provide liquidity to the order book. They place orders that don’t instantly trade. Instead, they wait for it to be matched.

Takers – take liquidity from the order book and place orders that are matched with existing ones.
