Acuity DEX Alpha Testing

Posted July 21, 2021 by Jonathan Brown ‐ 1 min read

The Acuity DEX is approaching minimum viable product. To begin with it will have a simple pair ACU / ETH. It will be possible to trade ETH stored in Metamask for ACU stored in the Polkadot browser extension. The Solidity smart contracts and the Substrate pallet are both mature. Development of a Rust-based off-chain worker to index the order book continues. Basic UI is coming together.

We will be adding many more pairs in future, including all ERC20 tokens, Avalanche, and Substrate chains that have enabled a supported pallet (Acuity, Contracts, or EVM).

Support for trading with Ethereum via new layer 2 technologies like Optimism and Abritrum is a major priority to reduce transaction fees.
