What is DYDX?

DYDX is a decentralized platform that is built on the Ethereum blockchain to offer smart contracts that support spot trading, margin trading, leveraged trading, and perpetual. Options, derivatives, and margin trading are very common features in a centralized exchange. DYDX has disrupted the market by facilitating these standard trading features to be built in a decentralized platform. 

Unlike in centralized exchange where people facilitate the trades, in DYDX, it is managed by smart contracts. Although DeFi had already achieved decentralized borrowing and lending, DYDX has revolutionized it with the addition of advanced trading tools. It also comes with a governance token that helps users participate in mining pools and receive rewards. Now users don’t have to rely entirely on centralized exchanges to enjoy the benefits of DeFi. 

Future trend of DYDX

Right now, DYDX is the most popular margin decentralized trading platform. The current $11 billion total volume of margins and perpetual is expected to grow steadily in the next few years. The DYDX liquidity pools are also experiencing a significant rise in volume. This shows that people believe in smart contracts. The upcoming Etherium upgrades will help DYDX scale even further. 

Eth2.0 upgrade will reduce the trading fee significantly thanks to the reduction of gas fees. Besides, you will not have to worry about the minimum trading size. Initially, the Ethereum network would only facilitate 15 transactions per second. But as Ethereum 2.0 unfolds, the blockchain can process up to 100,000 TPS. 

The DYDX development team is planning on adding more crypto assets to boost its growth. Their plan is to increasingly advance the trading options such as derivatives and options. Besides, it will continue upgrading the margin trading features. One of the latest upgrades is the stop-loss feature that allows traders to minimize potential losses improving the DYDX platform also improving the DeFi ecosystem.
