Serum, a decentralized exchange (DEX), recently got its native token SRM listed on major exchanges such as Binance, BitMax and Uniswap. Just a few seconds after listing on Binance, the token price shot up from $0.11 to over $1 (a surge of 1,029%).
Serum is a non-custodial DEX that will enable cross-chain trading. The project is a collaboration between FTX, a decentralized derivatives platform and the Solana blockchain platform. Sam Bankman-Fried, the CEO of Serum, said that the DeFi exchange will handle its first trade this week.
Serum’s brief IEO on the FTX exchange sold the SRM token for $0.11 and raised $660,000. Approximately 10 billion SRM tokens were minted as the maximum supply. However, the initial circulating supply is 181 million tokens.
Bankman-Fried said that although Serum is operational, it is not yet a “full product.” The team is still connecting GUIs, APIs, and wallets. In other words, customers will have to use the platform through a command-line interface for now. The platform will soon receive a standard, easy-to-use web interface.
Serum claims to be the first fully decentralized derivatives DEX and aims to be more decentralized than its competitors. It plans to do so by offering cross-chain swaps without a central party and introduce its own native stablecoin without central backing.
