Learn more about our core product and how it sets Polkadex apart from existing DEXes and CEXes

Polkadex Orderbook is Polkadex’s core product. In simple terms, it is a fully decentralized Layer 2-based exchange featuring an orderbook built on the Polkadot Network. We have designed Polkadex Orderbook with two types of cryptocurrency traders in mind:

  • Users of traditional centralized exchanges who enjoy speedy transactions, advanced trading tools and an easy-to-use interface but have to trust centralized operators and thus give away control of their assets and identity taking on more risk;
  • Users of decentralized exchanges who retain control of their assets and thus lower their risk of losing funds, but have to put up with an inferior…


Why we launched PDEX as an ERC-20 token and what will happen to ERC-20 PDEX tokens once we launch Polkadex Mainnet

As a next-generation, heterogeneous multi-chain network, Polkadot is often hailed as the ‘next big thing’ in the world of decentralized technology and finance. However, many of the projects building on Polkadot network have often faced scrutiny over whether they truly belong to the Polkadot ecosystem or are just trying to take advantage of the Polkadot brand. Many projects were accused of not being true Polkadot projects solely because they did not launch a token or product natively on Polkadot from the start. However, at Polkadex we have no doubt of our belonging to the Web3 and Polkadot ecosystems. …

As a truly innovative DEX, Polkadex is even decentralizing the KYC process… but what does that mean, exactly?

KYC (Know Your Customer) guidelines have caused a headache for financial service providers and users since way before cryptocurrency even existed. However, with the rise of crypto in the last decade and DeFi in the last few years, those headaches have almost turned into migraines, especially for centralized exchange (CEX) users. With the recent growth of the decentralized exchange (DEX) space, it seemed like the KYC issue was finally solved, only for it to reveal the limitations of the space. While there are many issues with the ways it is currently being conducted, KYC is still a necessary process to…


What is a Decentralized Exchange (aka DEX)?

With a decentralised crypto exchange, users can trade tokens without handing custody of their coins over to a third party. A DEX relies on automatically executed protocols called smart contracts that enable crypto trades to happen without a custodian in the middle.

Traders can seek gains and not have to worry that a centralised exchange (CEX) like Binance or Coinbase might suddenly limit access to their crypto or restrict their ability to trade it.

That’s proven to be an attractive offer — particularly for more advanced crypto traders. …
