The World's First Layer 3 DEX

Hydranet offers the world's first Layer 3 Decentralized Exchange. Join the community now and witness this revolution up close.

Hydranet DEX provides off-chain BTC transfers using Lightning Network, a Bitcoin Layer 2 technology.

Connext allows Hydranet DEX to perform Layer 2 transactions for Ethereum and other EVM chains.

Hydranet DEX offers cross-chain trading. Exchange native BTC to ETH on Layer 2 without the need for a bridge.

Market Makers are rewarded with a share of the DEX transaction fees through a taker-pays-maker model.

Hydranet's Layer 3 technology mitigates the scaling problems of blockchains. The transaction settlement time is 1 second.

Since trades are executed off-chain, network fees are negligible. Only DEX fees are applied per trade—just like a CEX.

PRIVACY & SECURITY

Your Keys, Your Coins

The Hydranet DEX offers a CEX-like experience but in an entirely trustless manner. Users remain in full custody of their wallets and won't have to trust 3rd parties with their funds.

Since transactions are executed off-chain, there is no book that keeps track of the transaction history and there is no need for KYC.

There is no need to trust a Centralized Exchange with user data or funds, where centralized exchanges will always run the risk of being hacked.

DEX FEATURES

Make Cross-Chain Swaps with an Order Book

The Hydranet DEX consists of 3 major parts: A multi-currency wallet, an Exchange with an order book feature, and a Simple Swap interface for one-time trades.

The Hydranet DEX offers cross-chain, low-fee swaps with a ledger of buy and sell orders.

With the Hydranet DEX you can also make easy one-click swaps without the need for an order book.

Why So Special

The Hydranet DEX is a Layer 3 cross-chain DEX that utilizes Layer 2 protocols (Lightning Network and Connext) to allow low-fee, trustless, cross-chain swaps between BTC, ETH, and additional altcoins. All in one platform.
