The Future of Decentralized Trading

Polkadex is the first project featuring an orderbook based exchange in the Polkadot ecosystem.

Cross-Chain Transfers

Trustless cross-chain bridges help to bring any blockchain token to Polkadex in a non-custodial and trustless manner. It functions through Parachain with Polkadot network and Snowfork with Ethereum network. Polkadex is built for the future making it possible to integrate with other liquidity providers using forkless upgrades. We do not have access to user funds or smart contract keys.

Planned Bridges
Polkadot Logo icon

Once Polkadex becomes a parachain, it will be able to connect to any other parachain and Polkadot network itself to share assets in a trustless way. Polkadex will also get the ability to bring assets from Ethereum to Polkadex.

On-Chain Trading Bots

Trading bots on Polkadex bring High-Frequency Trading (HFT) to both retail and institutional investors. Zero cancellation fees allow traders to enter and exit the markets in a dynamic fashion based on the market situation and incentivize API endpoints for both trading bot companies and liquidity providers. Moreover the unique architecture of Polkadex eliminates such bottlenecks of traditional decentralized exchanges as front-running of orders by paying higher gas fees. decentralized exchanges.

State Commits V2

Polkadex Orderbook implements a Layer 2 Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) on top of Polkadex that allows an operator to maintain the Orderbook. The results produced by the TEE contain cryptographic proof. In the event of tampering the blockchain can invalidate the proof thereby not accepting the tampered state submitted by the Operator. The users' funds always stay in the native blockchain and are controlled by the user. In this way Polkadex ensures that only the trader's private key can initiate a balance transfer.

A man sitting in front of a computer has two options, one to connect his wallet, which uses the IFPS system, the second is to carry out transactions with TEE, TEE and IFPS communicate with each other, TEE communicates with Orderboo engine, thus forming the workflow by Fluid Switch Protocol V2

Unmatched performance

Polkadex scales to 500K transactions per second and sub-millisecond latency. The latest leaps in technological development enable Polkadex to keep the advantages of centralized exchanges and at the same time support High-Frequency Trading maintaining the highest level of security of user funds.
