StraitsX 2021, Wrapped

December 22, 2021

This year has undoubtedly been an exceptional year for StraitsX.

#1 Non-USD denominated stablecoin in the world by market cap

Since the launch of the StraitsX Singapore Dollar (XSGD) in October 2020, XSGD has experienced tremendous success. According to the Coinmarketcap list of asset-backed stablecoins, XSGD has now become the largest non-USD denominated stablecoin in the world.

XIDR & StraitsX Indonesia


In November 2021, we unveiled our second stablecoin, the StraitsX Indonesia Rupiah (XIDR) and the StraitsX Indonesia platform. XIDR is available on the Ethereum blockchain as an ERC-20 token and on the Zilliqa blockchain as a ZRC-2 token.
XIDR aims to be the most cost-effective Indonesian Rupiah stablecoin, with free bank transfers in & out, and transfer out fees (network fees for ERC-20 and ZRC-2) capped at 50,000 XIDR.

XIDR is available on Uniswap, Zilswap, DFX Finance and HaloDAO.

Over SGD 2,500,000,000 SGD processed by StraitsX API


As the underlying payment infrastructure and fiat on-ramp for many popular digital asset exchanges in Singapore, the StraitsX platform has processed over 2.5B SGD transactions in 2021 as of December. 

As of December 2021, over 2.3B XSGD has also been transacted on the Ethereum and Zilliqa blockchains. 

Brand New and Streamlined User Interface

In October, we unveiled our brand new standalone platform and redesigned logos for StraitsX & XSGD.

Over 10 partners onboarded this year
