In a significant development for the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector, the dYdX community has successfully upgraded to dYdX Chain software v5.0.0. It marks a pivotal moment for the platform. The upgrade, finalized on June 6, 2024, introduces a range of advanced features. It aims at enhancing trading efficiency, market access, and user experience.

Raydium Markets Added to dYdX Chain with v5.0.0 Upgrade

New features on the v5.0.0 of the dYdX Chain, Include Isolated Markets and Isolated Margin. The Markets are isolated, which means that there are separate collateral pools and insurance funds, which makes it possible to manage risks in the best possible manner. Isolated Margin allows traders to isolate the collateral for particular trades eliminating the effect of changes in price within trades.

Another improvement is the incorporation of the Slinky price oracle, created with the help of Skip. Slinky uses the strong security properties of dYdX Chain to maintain per-block price updates at millisecond intervals. This real-time price oracle allows for direct querying of price feeds from decentralized exchanges (DEXs) within the dYdX network.

Initially, Slinky will let users interact with Raydium markets, which means that it will broaden the market universe for the platform many times over. It involves increasing the number of potential listable markets by over eight hundred and the most trending popular Solana meme coins such as BODEN, POPCAT, and TREMP. These listings may be achieved through a straightforward governance process, provided as per dYdX’s vision of the permissionless market.

dYdX Releases Android App to Expand User Accessibility

Other than these technical advancements, dYdX has expanded decentralization of its users since releasing   of its trading application in Android following the iOS application. This is a strategic move to increase the user base where traders can use dYdX’s complex functions on their preferred portable devices. The availability of both Android and iOS versions proves that dYdX focuses on making products easy to understand and places users at the core of a constantly evolving DeFi landscape.

Finally, v 5.0.0 of dYdX Chain offers a qualitative leap forward on the platform while enhancing the technical base and expanding the offers of markets. With such capabilities, dYdX has solidified its place in the list of the top platforms in the decentralized finance ecosystem as it successfully contributes to the development of decentralized trading products.
