We’re the world’s leading decentralized exchange. Our goal is to build the world’s biggest crypto exchange on a 3-5 year time horizon, and accelerate the world’s transition to decentralization.

What we’re building

We’re building open source software that redefines trading. dYdX is a decentralized exchange for trading cryptocurrencies (and eventually other assets) built on smart contracts (programs that run on the blockchain). We’re first targeting advanced traders and financial derivatives.

Why join us

We’re targeting a huge market. Derivatives are an order of magnitude bigger than anything else in finance, and in the past year have become the largest market in crypto as well! Our goal is to become one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world (currently DeFi is ~5% of all crypto trading).

We’re backed by the best investors in crypto, including Andreessen Horowitz, Paradigm, and the founders of Coinbase. We’ve been around for 5 years, and have consistently been at the forefront of building in DeFi.
