Frequently asked questions

ZKX was conceived by Eduard, Naman and and Vitaly Yakovlev, inspired by the potential in emerging markets, the DeFi wave, and the "Eat the Rich" narrative sparked by the 2021 GameStop event.

The founding team of the company, with their background in venture capital, expertise in navigating emerging markets, and experience in tech scale-up operations, leads a diverse team of 32 professionals spread across seven nations, from Bali to London. This international team has successfully secured $5.5 million in funding through two rounds of token financing.

Unlike CEXs, ZKX provides self-custody, ensuring users have control over their funds. It operates on blockchain technology, offering transparency, decentralized governance, and reduced reliance on intermediaries. Additionally, ZKX aims to match the scalability of CEXs while providing the benefits of on-chain trading, like lower transaction costs.

ZKX's approach is unique due to its combination of decentralized trading on an L2 network, which ensures fast transaction speeds and low costs, and a robust risk management engine that adapts to the underlying asset's volatility.

ZKX addresses liquidity challenges by partnering with market leaders like Amber Group and CEXs such as Huobi and Crypto.com. These partnerships provide low-latency data feeds and depth of market, ensuring robust liquidity on the platform.

The native token of ZKX allows holders to participate in governance and revenue sharing. Staking the token entitles users to a share of the exchange's revenue, aligning the interests of the platform with those of its users.
