Privacy focused decentralized crypto network Ghost announced on Tuesday that it will soon be listing the mainnet token GHOST on its GhostX, the ecosystem’s decentralized crypto exchange. In the official tweet, Ghost said that GhostX aims to allow crypto users to use their holding privately.
Ghost was initially promoted by computer scientist turned crypto entrepreneur John McAfee, who recently abandoned the project, citing issues with Ghost head Josh Case. Interestingly, responding to a tweet on appointment of custodians to the project, McAfee claimed that Josh Case has been ousted by the GHOST community, which might help it succeed. He also added that he might return to supporting the project if they prioritize creating the world’s first stable private coin.
GHOST is aimed at enabling the users to liberate themselves from “financial enslavement” and enjoy total independence while using their crypto. At launch, it was touted to be a part of the big revolution McAfee promised, along with the McAfee DEX and the GHOST cellular network. The midway fallout raised a lot of questions, to which Ghost had replied saying that their ecosystem does not depend on a single person and that McAfee was never involved in the technical development of the project.
Privacy focused cryptocurrencies have witnessed a surge in the last few months, and the success of established privacy tokens like Monero has encouraged a number of new projects. Meanwhile, Ghost has appointed three custodians to accelerate decentralization and improve control.
