We have chosen Zokyo as our security partner, and the audit report will be released before the official launch of derivative trading on Metis. Before that, zkDX will only enable trading in tUSDT mode.
tUSDC is a test token that users can obtain for free, allowing them to experience zkDX with only gas fees and without any risk of loss.


The integration of LayerZero technology to build an Omnichain Aggregator of derivative trading, concentrating liquidity from different L2 networks, is a bullish move.

zkDX, good project!!!

The vision of the project is mind blowing. Aiming to become the main derivative exchange within the industry is something to highly anticipate.

A quick one, since you have chosen Zokyo as a security partner, what are the steps that Zokyo will employ to ensure a risk free trading for users.

I love the project’s concept. Furthermore, I think that the partnership with Metis and the user-centric tokenomics will help pave the way for a seamless trading future.

I am personally impressed with zkDX decentralized derivatives exchange, featuring diverse trading options from crypto perpetual futures to foreign currency and stocks. This versatility caters to a wide range of investor preferences, creating a dynamic and inclusive trading environment. Definitely rooting for zkDX.

zkDX is setting some high standards for decentralized derivatives exchanges! The Omnichain Aggregator and risk grading system seem promising, especially in enhancing trading experiences. The focus on user benefits and collaborating with Metis for a stronger ecosystem is impressive.

Hi @zkdxtrade
Nice proposal, how I wish you added some metrics to the proposal. Nevertheless, I have these questions for you…

  1. What are the backgrounds and experiences of the core team? I was unable to find any information about it in your Docs or your website.
  2. Can you explain more about the specific hedging and insurance mechanism(s) you’re using?

I like the part of Hedging and insurance mechanism, that means our portfolios are shielded from unfavourable market fluctuations. Interesting! Great one zkDx!

Really glad to see what zkDX decentralized derivatives exchange has to offer, with this proposal put in place, I think it will foster the trading of crypto perpetual futures, foreign currency, stocks, and various innovative financial derivatives.

I can’t wait for this proposal to be given a greenlight. Integrating zkDX on Metis introduces advanced derivative trading for users, creates new trading pairs, boosts TVL, and fosters a stronger DeFi ecosystem, enhancing opportunities and security for Metis community members. So for me, I think having all this incorporated this is a win -win.

Let’s get zkDX on Metis asap! :relieved:
