The dYdX (DYDX) cryptocurrency is used for the layer-2 protocol and serves to facilitate the operation, which means that it allows traders, liquidity providers, and partners to essentially contribute to the protocol’s future.
The push towards a native blockchain as a catalyst for growth
The derivatives-focused decentralized exchange (DEX) dYdX made an official announcement where they announced plans for the development of their own independent blockchain platform.
This is dubbed the dYdX chain and will be created through the usage of the Cosmos SDK, as well as the Tendermint Proof-of-Stake consensus protocol.
Keep in mind that these technologies are already a part of the Cosmos ecosystem, which is an interconnected system of application-specific blockchain networks.
This new chain will be released as a means of supporting the fourth iteration (V4) of dYdX.
Validators will need to stake the token to secure the network under the PoS consensus mechanism.
The transaction fees within this new chain will also be payable through the usage of the DYDX cryptocurrency.
With this increased level of utility, the token might increase in value, and dYdX will be built and released by the end of 2022, according to the announcement.
