Despite a long 2018, in January 2019 development of 0x (ZRX) was still going strong. Boxswap.io released a wallet for NFT traders supporting 0x Instant for ERC20 tokens. Another important for 0x resource that allows users to view activity in 0x network, 0x Tracker, got a brand new look.
New features planned for 0x
As for now, the team is planning to focus on improving liquidity. Different models that should theoretically boost liquidity are being explored; ideas on how Trade Execution Coordinator should work were discussed in a previous ZRX developer call. The next developer meeting will happen on February 5th.
Another major development is the alpha launch of StarkDEX by StarkWare Industries. The company aims to improve the scalability of their DEX by incorporating 0x protocol.
The 0x hackathon organized in collaboration by 0x and Coinlist, a backend solution for running token sales, ending on 7th February, continues. The main aim of it is to boost the development of new projects based on 0x blockchain. The grand prize is 10 000 USD. It is also possible to earn 10 USD worth of ZRX for each friend who submits a project via referral. It is still possible to sign up for the hackathon here.
Several teams have hosted workshops in order to share the knowledge they earned while developing their particular 0x-based project. Links to recordings are available in a blog post by 0x.

January also saw two professionals join the 0x team. First of them, Marc Savino, has previously worked at Postmates, Affirm, and, crucially, Coinbase, helping all of the aforementioned companies to build their teams. Another person that has joined 0x team is Brent Oshiro, who will work as a Community Engagement Lead at 0x. 0x is looking forward to expanding their team even more and is offering talented individuals a chance to join the team!
