0x is a protocol that enables secure, trustless, feeless, and fast transactions of ERC20 tokens between users by utilizing Ethereum smart contracts. 0x combines the strengths and avoids the weaknesses of both centralized and decentralized exchanges by having off-chain order relay with on-chain settlement. (To learn more about 0x, read our ICO review or watch our video review)

The project was founded in October 2016 and an alpha version of the protocol was released on their private test network in early 2017. The launch of the ZRX token sale was conducted on August 15, 2017.

Since then, the 0x team has been making a lot of progress with notable milestones such as the release of the 0x Standard Relayer API, 0x Wiki, 0x Portal and 0x Connect, as well as the much-anticipated launch of 0x protocol version 2 on the Kovan network at the end of June 2018.

As of May 15, 2018, 0x project had over 10 relayers, achieved over $183 million in aggregate volume, over 100,000 trades, and $4 million in daily volume, and have traded over 300 unique ERC20 tokens.

There are now over 30 projects that will be or are using the 0x protocol, including dApps such as Aragon, Augur, District0x, Maker, MelonPort, and Request Network, and relayers such as Amadeus, Ethfinex, OpenRelay, Paradex, and Radar Relay.
