An open-source project on a mission.

Our mission is to bring digital asset exchanges and individual traders onto the same network and address the problem of liqudity isolation. Our offering is the Exchange Union Daemon (XUD) – a first-of-its-kind technology designed to make trading self-sovereign, secure and efficient.

XUD nodes on our platform will create a global marketplace where both exchanges and traders benefit from increased liquidity, more trading pairs, and better prices. In short, we’re building the first decentralized network, which enables instant and trustless trades.

Exchange Union’s implementation is challenging and can only be achieved with support from the greater developer community. To support his, we open-sourced all documentation and the entire code base. Both full-time and open-source developers work hand-in-hand to advance XUD.
