ALEX Orderbook Whitelist
August 2, 2022

What is the ALEX Orderbook?

ALEX Orderbook inaugurates our scalability solution. It is the non-custodial, hybrid on-chain/off-chain order-matching engine for decentralized exchanges.

The Orderbook enables fast confirmation without sacrificing the security of trade settlement on Bitcoin.

Our aim is to integrate the intuitive UI/UX user experience of centralized exchanges (CEX) with the security and transparency of decentralized exchanges (DEX).

Why is this Testnet release important?

The ALEX Orderbook Testnet is launched with the sole purpose of improving ALEX products through community feedback. This is the first time a hybrid orderbook protocol will be connected to the Stacks blockchain.

During the testnet, our community will be able to test and familiarize themselves with:

  • ALEX2 functionalities
  • Providing feedback to earn rewards
  • Assisting the ALEX team in continuous improvement through iteration.

You will need testnet tokens to test the Orderbook. Testnet tokens will be distributed for the testing xBTC/xUSD, STX/xUSD and ALEX/xUSD pairs.
