The ecosystem of digital assets demands new ways to exchange assets that today's centralized exchanges simply can't deliver. Exchanges are not living up to the promise of self-custodianship and free exchange with anyone in the world, whereas this is precisely what makes assets like bitcoin the revolution that it is. We are on a mission to change this.
We at Exchange Union are building xud, the software for a decentralized exchange network called OpenDEX. It brings market makers, exchanges and individual traders worldwide onto a single trading network and liquidity pool. OpenDEX is designed to address one of the most challenging reasons why decentralized exchanges haven't taken over yet: lack of liquidity
Built on layer two technology, transactions on OpenDEX are instant and trustless, which means all parties remain in control of their funds at all times. OpenDEX is a free and open marketplace where anybody can become a market maker and earn for providing liquidity, or access liqudity as company or individual trader.
