Concordex, the first dedicated decentralized exchange (DEX) built on the Concordium blockchain, is set to launch its public testnet on May 25th. The project raised $1.7 million in seed funding from Tacans Labs, Skynet Trading, Seier Capital, Amdax and Concordium blockchain in December 2022 to bring institutional-grade DeFi trading tools to the Concordium blockchain ecosystem.
Concordium is a unique public-layer 1 blockchain with an embedded identity verification layer, providing a secure way for users and enterprises across the world to trade, and remain compliant, while ensuring the privacy crypto users have grown accustomed to. Concordex will utilize the regulatory-ready Concordium ecosystem to offer one of the first regulation-friendly DeFi platforms, a radical step forward in the evolution of DeFi.
“We are thrilled to launch our public testnet on May 25th. By leveraging the regulatory-ready Concordium ecosystem, we will offer one of the first regulation-friendly DeFi platforms, taking a significant step forward in the evolution of DeFi, while bringing the first decentralized trading platform to users in the ecosystem," said Mathias Lundoe Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer at Concordex Labs.
“As the first DEX to launch on Concordium blockchain, Concordex is expected to play a foundational role for the Concordium role ecosystem. With the increased lack of trust in the unregulated centralized exchanges, DEXs are more important now than ever, but the lack of user identification provides little room for traditional institutions to participate in the wider ecosystem. With Concordium’s identity layer, Concordex is well positioned to usher capital into the cryptocurrency markets.” said Lars Seier Christensen, Founder of Concordium and Seier Capital.
“As Concordex’s strategic partner, Amdax is excited to see the team’s hard work come to fruition. Pairing the Tacans Labs’ innovative vision and technical know-how with the regulatory-ready Concordium blockchain poises Concordex to be the first true DEX to usher institutions into the cryptocurrency markets.” - Marcel Burger, Chief Investment Officer at Amdax.
Concordex will bring a variety of features to the Concordium ecosystem including simple trading, as well as concentrated liquidity and flexible fee levels for liquidity providers allowing them to optimize capital deployment and maximize returns over time.. With a team of highly capable TradFi and DeFi veterans, the platform is set to bridge the gap between TradFi and DeFi with true on-chain derivatives and other tools dedicated to institutional investors.
