The Waves blockchain platform recently launched its own decentralised exchange (DEX). The developers explain that DEX is designed to avoid the problems that plagued earlier decentralised exchanges and prevented them from gaining a critical mass of users.

Waves’ DEX offers asset-to-asset trading as well as crypto and fiat tokens integration. It promises to operate very quickly as trades will be executed on the matching engine, while still being settled on the blockchain. The interface will be similar to the centralized bitcoin exchanges that are most popular in the cryptocurrency world.
