What is IDEX crypto and why is it rising?
Idex is a hybrid liquidity decentralized exchange (DEX) that functions as an order book and an automated market maker (AMM). It claims to be the first to combine the features of a traditional order book with the security and liquidity of the automated market maker.
It brought a unique approach to the decentralized exchange (DEX) functions by combining the off-chain trading engine with the on-chain trade settlement, which provides users various benefits.
For instance, the approach eliminates failed trades and the waste of money on gas fees. It claims to offer users an efficient trading experience. Its instant trade execution implies that users can continue their trading without waiting for the previous trades to settle.
It claims that advanced order types and trading strategies can be executed through this approach, as limit orders are possible while opening up arbitrage scope with other exchanges.
Idex was co-founded by brothers Alex Wearn and Phil Wearn, who currently serve as the project's CEO and COO, respectively. IDEX, an ERC-20 token on Ethereum, is the native token of the platform. It is available for trading on exchanges like Binance, Uniswap V2, Gate.io, etc.
Its recent gains may have been driven by social media discussions about the token.
It recently announced to start working on a decentralized perpetual swaps exchange, IDEX v4. The project's infrastructure is "perfectly aligned" with the traders' requirements, which is a high-performance derivative DEX, it said. It also provided a four-to-eight month timeline for the development of IDEX v4.
