Incognito pDEX: How it works and how to use it

UPDATE (11 December 2019): Now anyone can be a liquidity provider! For instructions on how to add your own pair or supply liquidity for an existing pair, scroll to the bottom of this article.

pDEX is a different kind of exchange. It’s non-custodial (which means your money is actually yours), it’s decentralized (built entirely on-chain), and because it’s powered by Incognito — it’s completely anonymous, of course.

It also facilitates instant matches by means of an automated market-making mechanism (more on this in a bit), and offers a chance for anyone to become a liquidity provider and earn a percentage of trading fees.

pDEX is the privacy-focused, inter-blockchain and instant-matching rendition of Nick Johnson and Vitalik Buterin’s conversations on Reddit circa 2016, and Hayden Adam’s implementation of Uniswap in 2018. Continue reading Incognito pDEX: How it works and how to use it

Incognito mode for Ethereum

Incognito is a high-throughput proof-of-stake sidechain, made possible by the implementation of state sharding. Incognito takes a practical approach in designing and implementing its consensus mechanism, based on previous research and existing engineering by OmniLedger, Bitcoin, Ethereum 2.0, and Zilliqa.

The Incognito sidechain can be attached to any blockchain to conduct confidential asset transfer — in this case, Ethereum. The Incognito sidechain runs parallel to main blockchains, allowing for secure two-way transfers of crypto assets whenever privacy is needed.

This post will detail the means by which Incognito enables 100% confidential transfers of ETH and ERC20 tokens.
