#CryptoWednesday #4 - Bitpanda decodes cryptography and zero-knowledge proof

Brinsley Bailey

By Brinsley Bailey


It’s the middle of the week and we all know what that means - it’s #CryptoWednesday at Bitpanda! We’re introducing some tantalising coins from the world of cryptography and zero-knowledge proof technology. We are excited to add 4 new coins to our platform - Dusk Network (DUSK), dYdX (DYDX), Immutable X (IMX), and Mina (MINA) are now available for trading. Don’t forget - this week, we’re giving (cash)back. This week, you can earn cashback when you invest in any of the 4 newly-listed crypto projects - read on to find out more.

 It’s another #CryptoWednesday, and the Bitpanda crypto train is rolling full steam ahead to the next stop on our coin launch journey - all aboard! We recently added some popular coins from the metaverse and NFT space and this week is just as exciting with the introduction of the latest cryptography and zero-knowledge tokens. Let’s learn more about these exciting new additions to the Bitpanda platform. 

About Dusk Network (DUSK)

Dusk Network is a blockchain for confidential and programmable securities. Using the Segregated Byzantine Agreement consensus mechanism, this layer 1 blockchain is looking to provide financial markets with the tools to become a privacy blockchain for financial applications. The core goal of the network is its ability to deliver a scalable public infrastructure, the direct settlement finality of transactions and to ensure strict data privacy. DUSK is the network’s native utility token that can be used for staking, transactions and atomic swaps, the deployment of smart contracts and for taking part in network consensus. Buy DUSK on Bitpanda. 

About dYdX (DYDX)

DYdX is a layer-2 decentralised crypto exchange powered by the Ethereum blockchain. The governance token of dYdX’s layer 2 is DYDX. DYDX holders can participate in the exchange’s governance by proposing alterations to dYdX’s layer 2. Moreover, holders can stake DYDX and obtain discounted trading fees. DYDX is now available on Bitpanda. Find out more about dYdX on their official page. 

About Immutable X (IMX)

Immutable X is a layer-2 scaling solution with a focus on NFTs running on Ethereum. Immutable X wishes to solve some of the issues of the Ethereum blockchain, from low scalability and illiquidity to issues that users and developers might experience. Immutable X wants to provide users with a highly scalable, safe environment for minting and trading NFTs, with instant trading and no gas fees. IMX is the protocol’s utility token and is used for governance, staking and payment of transaction fees. Don’t miss IMX on Bitpanda and find out more about the token on their official page

About Mina (MINA)

Formerly known as Coda Protocol, Mina is a minimal, succinct blockchain with a size of only 22KB. Interestingly, the blockchain is designed to never change in size, no matter the usage growth, to reduce computational requirements in an effort to run DApps more efficiently. To keep its size small and to minimise the weight of the transactions on the blockchain, Mina employs zk-SNARK (Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge) proofs of the transactions processed on the blockchain. 

SNARK producers create zk-SNARK proof from the blocks made by block producers, which are added in the blockchain’s marketplace - Snarketplace. Before adding new work to this marketplace, block producers must purchase completed SNARK work. This system allows Mina to keep a small and fixed size. The native token and currency of the Mina blockchain is MINA, which is needed for both block production and purchasing SNARK proofs, and is now available on Bitpanda. Find out more about MINA on their official page.
