Why Did We Choose Vertex?
After an extensive period of meticulous building and rigorous research, deFarm, a social layer for derivatives-focused on-chain vault asset management protocol, has finally unveiled its chosen key partner for the launch of an exciting new trading venue. The honor falls upon Vertex, an all-in-one decentralized exchange built on Arbitrum. With unwavering commitment, deFarm has tirelessly evaluated numerous potential collaborators, and now, after much anticipation, Vertex has been integrated as the perfect next step in our journey.
Vertex is an exceptional decentralized exchange built on Arbitrum that stands out from the DEX landscape due to its distinct design. Through its innovative hybrid orderbook-AMM model, Vertex achieves an impressive order matching execution time of less than 30 milliseconds. This remarkable speed not only provides deFarm users with trading capabilities comparable to centralized exchanges but also ensures less fees and safeguards against MEV risks.
Vertex is a decentralized exchange protocol that operates on the cross-margining principles, providing spot trading, perpetual contracts and a built-in money market to allow users lending and borrowing for yield, all seamlessly integrated into a single platform. With such a wide range of products, users don’t have to access multiple platforms, instead of heading to Aave to lend and borrow, to Uniswap to trade spot and to GMX for perpetual trading. Now, Vertex is all you need.
We extend our appreciation to Chainslab, our incubator, for providing us with the opportunity to delve deeper into Vertex and share it with our community. Through this article, you can find more analysis and insightful reviews of Vertex.
The collaboration between deFarm and Vertex is fueled by the shared vision of democratizing finance and empowering individuals to take control of their investments:
For deFarm users, this integration opens up a new avenue for investment opportunities.
