IOTA [MIOTA], the 14th largest coin in the market was buoyed by its recent integration with the Zeux platform, resulting in the coin surging by 7% against the US Dollar. The coin closed the gap with the privacy-centric Monero [XMR], and trailed the latter by $15 million, at press time.

Zeux announced the MIOTA addition on 21 March via a Medium blog post, and added that this integration will boost the coin’s retail use. Merchants that cater to Apple Pay and Samsung Pay users will now accept MIOTA as well.

The Zeux platform will roll out in Europe by April, and will enter the US in 2020. The application claims to be a “digital banking solution for both fiat and cryptocurrencies,” and plans on tying up with several merchants at the retail level. Zeux already received its license from the UK’s top regulatory body, the Financial Conduct Authority.

Their tweet announcing the integration stated,

Frank Zhou, Founder and CEO of Zeux, believes that the partnership will help propel cryptocurrencies into mainstream retail use. Zhou is looking forward to working with IOTA’s Tangle technology, a Distributed Ledger Technology [DLT] facilitating machine-to-machine interactions, seamless micropayments, and data transfers. Referencing Tangle, he said,

“As a distributed ledger with zero transaction fees, The Tangle is a very promising chain for us to build our customer data Dapp.”

IOTA was trading at a stagnant price level of $0.291, with a brief surge to $0.302 on 16 March. After dropping to $0.285, the coin later saw a massive increase of 7.97 percent and pushed the price to $0.308.

The rise continued with the coin reaching $0.315 in the next six hours, peaking at $0.323 on 22 March. At press time, the coin was trading at $0.319. This was the coin’s highest price since 24 February.

In terms of market capitalization, the coin was hovering around the $830 million mark, prior to a drop to $806 million. Following this, the coin’s valuation shot up to $876 million, peaking at $899 million. At press time, the market cap had dropped by over $10 million, and was valued at $887 million.



The South Korean exchange, UPbit, took the top spot in terms of IOTA trade volume, accounting for over 27.6 percent of the total volume in the trading pair IOTA/KRW. Other prominent exchanges in the MIOTA market were Binance, Bitfinex, and Huobi Global.
