Projects working on DEX on the Aptos ecosystem include:
Pontem: The project is invested by Delphi, Alameda, Mechanism, Animoca Brands, Aptos Labs and many others, with a round worth of $4.5 million. The project is in testnet stage and has a total of 105 thousand testers at the moment.
Pontem Network builds a product ecosystem on Aptos, in which Liquidswap is the main product. This DEX uses a combination of both Uniswap and Curve Finance engines.
Aptoswap: A fairly “classic” AMM project with 2 main features: farming with pools related to APT and swap. In the last Q3, the project has continuously updated upgrades and announced cooperation with prominent wallets on Aptos.
1kx Protocol: The AMM/DEX project allows trading of both spot and perpetual futures contracts. In addition, developing more lending and stablecoin OSD segments in the future. However, the reality shows that the development focus on the zkSync network is more.
Saber: AMM dedicated to Solana’s famous stablecoin, they will also develop a version on Aptos.
Most DEXs operate under the AMM mechanism, with the exception of Econia which operates under the orderbook mechanism.
In addition, there is a project working on trading aggregator Hippo - helping users to trade on a single interface and achieve the best trade prices.
