This exchange was launched in 2017, but many of its services have been available to users since 2019. Join us in this article to fully explain about this exchange and its features and facilities.

Spot Trading

Margin Trading

Perpetual Trading


According to the services provided by this exchange, it can be said that this exchange is a competitor for other decentralized exchanges such as UniSwap or SushiSwap.


With the launch of the second layer of Ethereum, this exchange also moved some of its services to the second layer and they are no longer available in the first layer (for example, spot and margin). Although at first glance this may not be good, but if we look at it from the point of view of speed and scalability, it is a good decision. As you know, with the launch of Ethereum 2, the speed of transactions will increase to a great extent, and for this reason, it seems reasonable to enter the second layer to provide better services.


Thanks to Ethereum’s smart contract, you can have margin transactions and permanent contracts in this decentralized exchange, which many professional traders use. For example, imagine that you want to profit from a drop in the price of a currency. In this way, you open a short trading position on that currency. If the price moves as you expect, you will profit and if not, you will lose.

In order for a platform like dydx to have such an ability, a smart contract must be used. In this way, everything is done automatically by the network itself and your profit and loss are calculated.
