Counterparty and DEX Market
The situation with the Counterparty Dex is the same as it’s always been – any coin on the protocol is beholden to the value of XCP, Counterparty’s token. You may not have picked up but both Bittrex and Poloniex have stopped trading XCP and TUX will cease trading altogether on 7th July. If you have any coin with them GET THEM OUT! As a result, the value has rapidly disappeared towards $0. We are working towards putting Scotcoin onto its own blockchain, but linked to value of over $5billion. We will no longer have a price which is indicated by a third-party digital currency and which is volatile.
Be assured these current XCP changes will have no adverse effect on Scotcoin longer term. If you have any XCP you would like to sell, the Scotcoin Project will buy them at $2 per XCP which is more than the existing exchange price OR 10% above prevailing.
