What is a Decentralized Exchange?

A decentralized exchange is an online digital asset exchange that operates on the principle of decentralization, that is no central organization can influence its work. Such an exchange does not store data about users and their funds, but is only a platform for conducting transactions without intermediaries (p2p).

What are the advantages of trading on Decentralized Exchanges?

The most common reason is security and self-custody of your own funds while trading. Conventional centralized exchanges such as Binance or Bitmex run through a central server and user funds are held within custody of the exchange. You cannot control or access your private keys for your funds while they are held in a centralized exchange. This means if an exchange is shut down, hacked or encounters major technical problems, you are completely reliant on the exchange returning your assets to you when you withdraw, or reimbursing you out of their own insurance fund. Many exchanges also blacklist users from certain regions or countries, making it impossible for users from some areas to trade on exchanges with a quality UI and high volume. Decentralized exchanges are more resistant to this kind of censorship.

What is the 0x Protocol?

The 0x protocol is a shared liquidity protocol that allows for shared order books across decentralized exchanges that use the protocol. Orders are broadcast by relayers on the 0x network to other exchanges that utilize the protocol. This creates a more substantial liquidity pool across exchanges that use the protocol as orders that are relayed using the network can appear across numerous exchange order books.

What is Matic?
