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).
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:
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.
A whitelist application and Testnet tokens are available on the ALEX Orderbook homepage. Once you have your testnet tokens, you’ll be ready begin your testnet experience

Over next few days/weeks expect to see us adding more features and fine-tuning the Orderbook experience. As soon as we are satisfied with the stability and functionality, the Orderbook will be rolled out to the Mainnet.
Get ready to experience speed and scalability as the Orderbook test-drive is just a few days away!
The ALEX2 Testnet will continue developing a culture of community feedback that is integral to the protocol itself. The Orderbook launch is a significant milestone, but it is just the very beginning of ALEX2.
