How to trade OKEx DEX

The decentralized exchange has gained in importance in the crypto community after the decentralized financial boom of 2020. As of July this year, DEXs set a record high of $ 4.3 billion in trading volume - an increase of 174% from June.

Decentralized exchanges serve as trading platforms for assets and play a vital role in providing liquidity to the DeFi ecosystem. In OKEx's continued efforts to fuel the growth of the DeFi ecosystem, we launched the OKEx DEX test network to bring our users a seamless, decentralized trading experience.

If you want to learn how cryptocurrencies are traded on a decentralized exchange, this guide will help you get started with OKEx DEX.


What is OKEx DEX?

OKEx DEX is a decentralized exchange that is supported by our own blockchain called OKExChain. OKExChain is a series of open source public blockchains aimed at promoting large-scale commercial applications. As the first application in OKExChain, OKEx DEX offers a limitless, decentralized trading platform with the following functions:

  • security:: Secp256k1 elliptic curve algorithm is introduced to provide a highly secure environment for OKEx DEX.
  • Not in custody: Users have full access and control over their assets and wallets.
  • Order matching: OKEx DEX handles an auction calling mechanism that ensures that a trading pair only has one traded price in a block.

Users enjoy a more seamless trading experience and lower trading fees when trading OKEx DEX. Compared to public blockchains like Ethereum, OKExChain focuses on providing better, dedicated infrastructure for trading DApps and DEXs. This translates directly into lower costs for developers deploying their trading DApps and indirectly, lower trading fees for users.
