Trade-finance focused blockchain network XinFin’s (XDC) token price increased over the past month after Panama approved a bill to allow cryptocurrencies as means of payment for any legal civil or commercial operation in the country. The bill was approved by the National Assembly on 28 April and will be signed into law by Panamanian President Laurentino Cortizo.  

A number of cryptocurrencies’ prices were boosted by the news, including XDC. The XDC token price jumped after Panama passed the bill, spiking to $0.06738 on 30 April, up 27% from $0.05315 on 27 April.  

Although the token has since fallen and last closed at $0.05859 on 10 May, value was 2.2% higher than a month ago. However, it was down 33% compared with the same time in 2021.

XDC briefly hit an all-time high at $0.1939 on 21 August 2021 and fell over the rest of the year. The price chart shows that prices have been trading below $0.07 for most of this year.

What is XDC coin?

XinFin network is a hybrid blockchain focused on trade finance. It’s decentralised commercial services streamline and facilitate global trading and payment processes. The project is operated by the Singapore-based XinFin Foundation and aims: 

“To leverage the facilities of blockchain platform to connect the investors and the developers in a secure environment thereby allowing them to transact finances against certain secured digital assets.” 

XDC is the utility token used to facilitate transactions on the network, and reward validators. XDC network operates a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) protocol, meaning that any staking and validation requires a set number of token deposits.  

XinFin described the XDC network as a hybrid blockchain, which operates a public transaction ledger but also allows users to create private sub-networks with controlled access. 

According to XinFin’s Business Whitepaper: “The hybrid nature of XDC blockchain allows users to create private sub-networks. By creating a private sub network, XinFin allows institutional users to connect securely and privately with participating members.”

Due to the hybrid nature of XDC network, XinFin said: 

“Corporates can use the XDC protocol to build internal ledgers for transactions, KYC [know your client] or AML [anti-money laundering] records, employee records, travel data, intra-company transfers, etc.” 

Journalist and self-described ‘bitcoinist’ David Hamilton wrote on securites.io:

“The network combines an open blockchain structure with permissioned smart contracts. This combination of features enables developers to appease regulatory concerns among large financial institutions and leverage the best aspects of varying networks.”

According to CoinMarketCap, the token has a circulating supply of 12.3 billion.

In all, 32.5% of the token supply is allocated as ecosystem participation incentives, while 10% will be used to hedge against fluctuations in the value against fiat currencies in commercial transactions. And 5% will be donated for philanthropic and social causes.

Facilitating trade finance on TradeFinex

XinFin created the TradeFinex as a secure transaction platform that facilitates the trading and transaction processes between parties globally. Users can create digital smart contracts over the XDC blockchain network via its TradeFinex platform. According to XDC network:

“The platform can be used for all four stages of contracting including discovery, negotiations, contracting and execution.”

A buyer can post their procurement requirements on the TradeFinex platform, which can be viewed by global suppliers who can submit a proposal in response. If the buyer and supplier agree to trade with each other “a blockchain based smart contract (from a standard template) can be executed between the buyer and the seller. The buyer procures and deposits XDC tokens into the escrow smart contract account.”

The parties can lock in the exchange rate to minimise currency fluctuations affecting the deposited XDC tokens. 

“XinFin has developed a hedge pool that protects participants from the fluctuations in the price of XDC tokens.”

When the transaction is completed, the smart contract is closed and the parties can provide ratings for each other, which will be recorded as credentials on the blockchain network.

Project risk profile

According to cryptocurrency research and data site Is This Coin A Scam, the XDC Network project has a safety score of 5.45 and was awarded an D rating, as of 11 May. According to the site, XDC scored 7.72 out of 10 on awareness, followed by 6 on trading volume and 5.4 on development. The sentiment and community score were 4.5 followed by 0.6 for credibility. The score is based on the site’s research on social media platforms such as Reddit and Twitter. 

According to the research data site, XDC coin “is suited to an adventurous investment style”.

One of the red flags is that the project roadmap has not been updated since 2021 and the milestones are recorded up to 31 December 2020. Additionally, there is no recent update on any real-world use case, and the last development was when the network joined the Global Trade Finance Distribution Initiative in August 2021.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
