HKDX Exchange on eToroX
As a currency which has been pegged to the US dollar since 1983, the Hong Kong Dollar was an obvious choice when five new stablecoins were launched recently on the eToroX Exchange. The Hong Kong dollar (HKDX) joins the Turkish lira (TRYX), the Polish zloty (PLNX), the South African Rand (ZARX), and the Singapore dollar (SGDX) — as stablecoins on eToroX Exchange — to bridge the gap between the world of cryptoassets and traditional financial markets. Seventeen stablecoins are currently being traded on the eToroX exchange, including eToroX’s US Dollar (USDEX), the Euro (EURX) and the Pound Sterling (GBPX). There are 99 trading pairs available on eToroX.
HKDX is a tokenized stablecoin — a cryptoasset linked to a traditional fiat currency — in this case, to the Hong Kong dollar (HKDX), which can now be traded on eToroX Exchange. The price of the HKDX is linked to the Hong Kong dollar on a 1:1 value basis, so if you trade HKDX on eToroX, it is the same as trading fiat Hong Kong dollars.

What Affects the Hong Kong Dollar/HKDX
The Hong Kong dollar and HKDX are influenced by these external drivers:
- Political developments, especially anti-government protests, which have caused a deterioration in Hong Kong’s economy.
- A reduction in the numbers of foreign tourists and business people in the city — who are staying away out of fear of increasing violence.
