In order to scale Challenge derivatives trading, dYdX and Starkware took 7 months to create a Layer 2 protocol specifically designed for perpetual cross-margin trading. Traders with early access to dYdX on Layer 2 will now benefit from trading with zero gas costs and reduced minimum trade sizes. dYdX on Layer 2 was designed from the ground up to provide users with a dramatically improved trading user interface and all of the standard features traders expect when dealing with perpetuals.
Beyond improving user interface and gas cost, dYdX on Layer 2 will also provide the following benefits:
- Money with wings Reduced transaction fees and minimum order sizes
- Instant negotiation
- Types of advanced commands
- Droplet Liquid order books
- Cross Margin Money Bag
- Biceps flexed Up to 25x leverage
dYdX on Layer 2 is currently only available to certain users, liquidity providers, and strategic partners. If you want to join the alpha, you can sign up for more details here. Note that perpetual trading on dYdX is not available to US residents at this time.
Along with this exciting launch, dYdX has undergone a rebranding that includes a complete overhaul of its core landing page and its logos. The protocol now claims the “hedgehog” emoji as its spirit animal, as dYdX often serves users by helping them “cover” their various positions.
