What is Idex? Introduction to IDEX IDEX is the first Hybrid Liquidity DEX, combining a high-performance order book and matching engine with Automated Market Making (AMM). 

The platform blends the best of centralized and decentralized exchanges, with the performance and features of a traditional order book and the security and liquidity of an AMM. 

Components IDEX is a unique combination of centralized and decentralized architecture that together create a superior user experience for both casual and advanced users.

High-performance Exchange This design enables IDEX to match centralized exchanges in latency and throughput-- performance that is unavailable from other DEXs.

Hybrid Liquidity IDEX is the first order book exchange to integrate a smart-contract Automated Market Maker (AMM) as a liquidity source.

Smart Contract The IDEX smart contracts bring programatic guarantees to the platform. IDEX utilizes a series of smart contracts to decentralize fund custody and trade settlement as well as introduce novel DeFi mechanisms.
