A layer 2 dedicated to trading

The strength of dYdX, is that apart from the costs of the protocol itself, there is no other transaction fees despite using the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. This is possible thanks to the use of a Starkware layer 2 solutionusing zero-knowledge proof (ZKP) technology.

Thus, dYdX makes it possible to propose directly, on the blockchain, features similar to those offered by the largest trading platforms. This includes margin trading, leverage up to 20%, weekly rewards for top users and cryptocurrencies, 24-hour market accessibility.

β€œLong” and β€œshort” positions are also supported, all on 35 different pairs.

However, the manipulation of cryptocurrencies on the phone not ideal in terms of security, due to the difficulty of supporting hardware wallets such as Ledger. However, this remains an interesting strategy from a democratization point of view, in the sense that it is easier to reach new potential users on mobile than on computer.

About the Author : Vincent Mayor


I timidly discovered the world of blockchain at the end of 2018 during my quest for financial freedom. Initially invested moderately, it was only two years later that I took the gamble of betting everything on the movement that was taking shape then. I then dedicate 2021 to training myself better to acquire more knowledge and seriousness. As I often like to say: I still have a billion things to learn. And what I do know, I want to share with you.
