IDEX launches on Binance Smart Chain

written by Bella Palmer

IDEX ramps up its platform to enable hundreds of thousands of transactions per second

IDEX has announced the launch of its trading infrastructure on the Binance Smart Chain, which will facilitate cost-effective DEX trading. The IDEX ‘Multiverse’ trading solution can export its trading experience to other blockchains, enabling 1000x reduced trade settlement costs.

Binance Smart Chain is attracting DEX’s and playing a big role in their continued growth. Since September of 2020, BSC users made more than 5 million trades while spending $456,000 in gas fees. By contrast, Ethereum DEX users have carried out more than 46 million trades since 2015 and have paid more than $207 in gas fees.

In a like for like comparison, BSC users pay less than 10 cents a transaction, while Ethereum DEX users pay an average of $4.50 a transaction – a 49x increase.

Alex Wearn, the CEO and Co-founder of IDEX stated: IDEX is excited to usher in the future of DEX trading. As more users enter the cryptocurrency market, we’re committed to providing the best possible trading experience. With settlement costs as low as $0.10 and the improved functionality, IDEX BSC is the most user-friendly DEX available.

IDEX is now matching the performance of centralised exchanges, as it ramps up its platform to enable hundreds of thousands of transactions per second. IDEX BSC is able to provide the same off-chain infrastructure as its Ethereum counter-part, such as high-performance matching engine, instant execution, and protection against front-running. 

IDEX BSC also supports the kind of advanced orders normally available only on centralised exchanges such as ‘stop-loss’ and ‘take-profit’.

Wearn continued, in line with the IDEX Multiverse, we will continue to explore new Layer-1 blockchains to support the IDEX infrastructure and become a hub for trading assets on various blockchains through a secure, high-performance platform.

New native assets available on IDEX BSC will include BNB and CAKE. Other assets, which aren’t available on Ethereum DEXs, will be wrapped versions of DOT and LTC among others.
