ApeX (Davion Labs)
“We were looking for an L2 that would provide high trading performance and enhanced user experience. StarkEx allows for accelerated perpetual contract trading at lower prices, while still offering time-tested liquidity, market depth and transparency to traders.”
The main objective of ApeX Protocol is to build a multi-chain permissionless DEX, engineered for high-performing precision trades in the decentralized derivatives market. As such, we have been looking for an infrastructure that would support such an endeavor. We looked into various Layer 2 options, to find the most suitable scaling solution.
We wanted an L2 that would provide high trading performance and enhanced user experience on ApeX Pro. Synchronizing StarkWare’s Layer 2 scalability engine – StarkEx – with ApeX Pro, allows for accelerated and affordable perpetual contract trades to be made, while still offering robust liquidity, market depth, and transparency to traders.
ApeX Pro is leveraging StarkEx’s cryptographic proofs and Validium to securely validate transaction batches — non-custodial trading at its most efficient, with enhanced user performance and experience.
Working with StarkWare
The integration process was smooth and seamless, thanks to StarkWare’s great engineers. We gained deeper knowledge about cryptographic proofs and Validium (Pedersen hash, etc.).
