What is IDEX


I.  Project Introduction

IDEX is the first Hybrid Liquidity DEX, combining a high-performance order book and matching engine with Automated Market Making (AMM). The platform blends the best of centralized and decentralized exchanges, with the performance and features of a traditional order book and the security and liquidity of an AMM. IDEX allows traders to get the best spreads, avoid failed transactions, and easily provide liquidity, all with the power of real limit and stop-loss orders.​

It has 3 components:
1. High-performance engine: The exchange component is similar to that of top centralized exchanges. This design enables IDEX to match centralized exchanges in latency and throughput-- performance that is unavailable from other DEXs.

2. Hybrid Liquidity: combines a traditional order book and matching engine with liquidity pools of an automated market maker (AMM). Traders are seamlessly matched against the best combination of limit orders and pool liquidity for the lowest-cost execution without any additional effort.

3. Smart Contracts: Historically, high performance exchanges require users to custody funds with the exchange. IDEX utilizes a series of smart contracts to decentralize fund custody and trade settlement as well as introduce novel DeFi mechanisms.
