As we count down the days until the beta launch of Smartdex 2.0, it’s time to wrap up our Smartdex 2.0 series!
Our earlier posts highlighted three of the four core elements of Autonio’s elegant next-gen DEX: liquidity aggregation, cross chain bridge aggregation, and Smartpools. While each of these play an important role and address their own fundamental issues in the marketplace, the significance of successfully aggregating cross-chain liquidity may truly be ‘The Game Changer’ that could launch the next wave of prosperity in the crypto space.
Solving One of the Biggest Challenges of the Crypto Industry
Moving assets between chains has become a necessity in DeFi in order to fully realize asset flexibility, portfolio diversity, and utilizing the strengths of any given blockchain. Therefore, it stands to reason that the projects that can solve these and other problems across multiple chains are those that will prove themselves to be the most valuable.
One mechanism that can help with this is cross-chain liquidity aggregation, in which cross-chain assets are funneled towards multi-chain liquidity pools. While the aim is relatively straightforward, the various blockchain solutions within layer 1, layer 2, and different consensus protocols means that, at large, liquidity still remains relatively fragmented.
Herein lies the importance of cross-chain liquidity aggregators acting as a bridge between different networks by aggregating liquidity sources from various DEXs across chains and their own cross-chain pools. Aggregators serve to enable the smooth movement of assets among blockchains and facilitate cross-chain trades in a decentralized way, which is the ethos of DeFi.
Most cross-chain liquidity networks focus on aggregation within one or two solutions, a comprehensive answer still out of reach. This is what Smartdex 2.0 seeks to answer.
Cross-Chain Liquidity Aggregation on Smartdex 2.0
With the role of liquidity aggregation being taken care of through our 0x protocol infrastructure, cross-chain liquidity will be bolstered by one of our new partners, Router Protocol and Biconomy among other cross-chain bridges and frameworks like Connext. Router Protocol plugs into Dfyn’s AMM layer 1 and layer 2 nodes to allow cross-chain transactions. This liquidity super mesh is a positive step forward in impacting the overall cross-chain liquidity aggregation of the crypto space.
Smartdex 2.0 future updates will assist in aggregating cross-chain liquidity on Ethereum and Polygon while later expanding to other networks such as BSC, HECO, Avalanche, Polkadot, Algorand, Cardano and Elrond.
This post concludes our Smartdex 2.0 blog series! We hope you enjoyed learning and look forward to you getting profitable results on Smartdex 2.0.
Have fun and happy trading with Autonio!
