Customizable Pool Weights
All Uniswap pools are even, “50/50” pools. This means that liquidity providers are forced to take equal exposure to two assets (e.g In a SWTH-DAI pool, users must hold an equal value of DAI, which users might not want).
Uneven pools, first pioneered by Balancer, allow for more advanced liquidity-pooling strategies on Demex. For example, a token holder can keep stronger exposure to token X in a 80-20 X-DAI pool than before.
This also means users can control their exposure to Impermanent Loss. This article provides a very in-depth explanation of how and why it matters.
Order Book Model Supported by AMMs
Traditional AMMs are constrained by a simple swap interface. This means users cannot visualise their slippage at various prices, and are forced to accept uncertainty with regards to the actual exchange rates.
On Demex, liquidity from AMMs are visualized in an order book form instead. Real orders from users are also added to the order book, giving DEX users an unparalleled CEX experience.
A full suite of Tradingview tools are also provided for price analysis, which is a groundbreaking improvement of past DEX models.
Anyone is able to create their desired markets and liquidity pools on Demex through the permissionless features.
Fully Customizable Markets
The Carbon chain is so powerful to enable fully customizable markets, enabling an enhanced DeFi experience on Demex. After a token is added to the Carbon protocol, its relevant markets and liquidity pools can be created permissionlessly by the user. Users can choose:
- Type of Market: Spot, Futures, Perpetuals, Options (Upcoming)
- Taker and Maker Fees
- Margin requirements
- And many more parameters.
Demex runs on the Carbon protocol which has access to multiple Layer-1 chains via the PolyNetwork Bridge. In essence, this means assets can be transferred from any of these chains (HECO, Avalanche, Harmony etc.) in the future. Currently, the supported L1-chains include:
