The installation at the portal is not yet automated so it will take two days of hand holding by the exchange. This means that the McAfee team will help in the installation of the software package for a fee of $395 and the runners of the portals will get 0.05% off each purchase trade that goes through them. Also, no percentage will be paid to the McAfee DEX team for the same.Source- Twitter
McAfee further announced that the DEX will have shared liquidity. This means all portals will have access to all maker/taker information coming through every other portal and the McAfee DEX portal.A Decentralized Exchange In True Sense
As previously reported by Coingape, McAfee announced the launch of the exchange on the 4th of October. As per earlier details, users need not submit any document, e-mail, bank info or transaction details. Moreover, nothing on the platform will be monitored, there will be no restrictions and no listing fees whatsoever. Furthermore, the DEX is open source which means that anyone can change the source code and may even eliminate trading fees!Source- McAfee DEX Official Website
The former antivirus magnate had earlier announced that along with his team he will allow others to build portals. This, in turn, will bolster power trading operations on his Ethereum- based DEX. While the beta version of the platform will be based on Ethereum, the DEX will soon be available on the TRON network as well.Where will the McAfee DEX Fees Go?
The 0.25% fees will go to the takers. There will be no fees whatsoever for the makers. Of the 0.25 fee, 0.05% will be paid to the exchange operator. The rest 0.20% will be split equally and airdropped to ESH and DEX token holders. The total supply of ESH tokens and $DEX tokens stands at 13.75 million and 200 tokens respectively.Source- Twitter
McAfee in another tweet took a sarcastic dig at the top crypto exchanges. He posted a picture of the different charges levied by the exchanges, their availability in different jurisdictions and their KYC procedures.Source- Twitter Does it Mean Good News For Traders?
McAfee’s tryst with the crypto space is not new. He has time and again shunned government control over fiat currencies and pointed out that centralized exchanges weaken the economy.
“A distributed exchange can’t be shut down by anyone. Decentralized meaning that nobody controls it, distributed meaning that it is everywhere and therefore impossible to stop. We’ve had privacy coins, that’s the other part of this equation because privacy coins with decentralized, distributed exchanges are the goose that lays the golden egg for us. We don’t use it though.”
