A comprehensive list of decentralized exchanges (DEX).

This is a list of decentralized exchanges of cryptographic assets (cryptocurrencies, tokens, derivatives, futures...) and their protocols, without a central entity. The architecture of these and their protocols can be quite different from one another. In some cases, they are built projects entirely open source. In other cases, they are closed in some aspects, but still implemented open or decentralized tools or mechanisms like smart contracts that are publicly verifiable. Other projects have chosen to create their own distributed ledger technology (DTL) in order to build a protocol for exchange.

PRs Welcome

DEX GRADE:

It is a complex task, since it not only requires a very specific technical definition, but also requires an exhaustive analysis of each of the exchanges that we include. We are working on it. But all help is welcome. The goal is to get a model like the Creative Commons badges https://creativecommons.org/share-your-work/licensing-types-examples/licensing-examples/.

This is just a draft written by Hanni Abu, Steven Hatzakis, Manfred Karrer and Elio Osés:

  • Accountless: The project should be accesible without registration, KYC or AML policies. ACL
  • Decentralized Capital Deposits (self-custodied): You should be able to trade directly out of your own wallet. DCD
  • Decentralized Client: The trades should be possibles through a downloadable client or build it from source. DC
  • Decentralized Development: The project should be open source. DD
  • Decentralized DNS: The project should be accessible through a decentralized domain name service (like ENS). DDNS
  • Decentralized Governance: The direction of the project should be governed by the project's service providers. DG
  • Decentralized Order Books: Orderbooks should be synced among various parties to prevent any malicious behavior in a similar way that blockchain validation consensus is decentralized. DOB
  • Decentralized Order Matching: The matching of orders should be decentralized among different parties. DOM
  • Decentralized Swap: The usage of atomic swaps. The trader's funds should go directly from one to the other without any other parties handling the funds. DS
  • Decentralized Settlement: DSTT
  • Fully Decentralized: FULLY
  • Open Protocol: OPRO
  • Relayer: RELAY
