What is Decentralized Exchange Development & the Need for Protection from Vampire Attack?

Even though cryptocurrency doesn’t enjoy the expected reputation across the country, it has emerged as one of the fastest-growing digital payment means. Since its inception, the cryptocurrency marketplace has gone through multiple advancements and has become better than ever. A decentralized exchange is one of those notable cryptocurrency evolutions that have made the use of cryptocurrency quick and smooth.

The introduction of this decentralised exchange technology has eliminated the sign-up need, attain 100% transaction anonymity, and complete many transactions in a single click. Exchanges like UniSwap, PanCakeSwap, SushiSwap, QuickSwap and VeniceSwap are gaining remarkable popularity.

It’s just the tip of the iceberg. Decentralized exchanges are more than this. So,let us Learn more about this inventive approach and the nitty-gritty involved in its development in this post.

What Is Decentralised Exchange?

Decentralized exchange of DEX is an inventive and advanced alternative to the traditional cryptocurrency change as it eliminates the need for having an intermediary to trade cryptocurrency. Those who want to get rid of imposed centralization of a crypto trade and use DEXs and gain full control over the owned crypto assets. 

In a customary centralized exchange, crypto traders are bound to proffer user identification details and house the crypto assets in an in-house account. Because of this, traders experienced less transaction anonymity and operational flexibility.

Decentralized Exchange

DEXs lift these restrictions and grant more freedom to the trader. Some of the keynote features of DEXs are:

  • Granting traders the ability to trade in crypto assets directly with the other traders
  • Securing the payment methods as per the need of the hours
  • Quick and smooth KYC integration 
  • Freedom to implement preferred security criteria
  • Generating separate crypto addresses for distinct transactions
  • Using ETH wrapper

Technology Stacks for Decentralised Exchange Development

After understanding the worth and utility of DEXs for a crypto trader, it’s obvious to get curious about their development. Well, the task is a bit tedious and yet you can accomplish it successfully by paying attention to what we’re going to tell you next.

 One can begin the development of DEX:

  • By hiring a team of skilled developers. Developers should have notable expertise in coding and be able to construct a highly inventive decentralized exchange website. NodeJS developers and React.JS developers are suitable for this job.
  • By getting a feature-rich decentralized exchange software to build an exchange website.  
  • In addition, here is crisp information about all the other key technologies for decentralized exchange:

Languages: Java, MEAN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, Angular, Node) Stack, or a reliable PHP framework like Laravel.

Databases: MongoDB, MySQL

Notification (Push) Technology: Twilio

Cloud: AWS or Google Cloud Platform

Once all these resources are gathered, the next step is to understand the crucial aspects of DEX development. The same is explained extensively next. 

Front-end Development

Front-end development of decentralized exchanges entangles user-interface designing and its implementation. This aspect is crucial as the viability of the user interface decides the future of the decentralized exchange. It should be smooth, hassle-free, and provide access to key information instantly.

This development part determines the look and feel of the platform. For better user engagement, front-end development should be flawless. Here is how one can achieve this goal:

  • The use of metaverse projects allows end-users to have more of a real-time experience in virtual space. It will make the user interface of your decentralised exchange more engaging. Also, it makes crypto trading less restrictive as traders can generate new currencies or MSTs.
  • The use of Web3JS development will allow traders to interact with a local or remote ethereum node easily.

Integration with SDK (Software Development Kit)

Robust integration with SDK is a step in backend development and is crucial to allow end-user to enjoy quick and smooth cross-chain swaps. SDK toolkit integration also brings back-end and front-end aspects together and makes them equipped enough to communicate with the XRP ledger.

The DEX integration process opens up new avenues for interoperability in the DeFi space. To know more about the appropriate SDK integration for your decentralized platform, it’s better to take the help of a DeFi consultant.

Liquidity Pool 

Liquidity pool is another key aspect to know while aiming at successful decentralized exchange development. Its implementation will set your platform free from a strong dependence on outsider market makers and support quick and inexpensive transaction processing. 

Liquidity Pool

At a fundamental level, the liquidity pool generates a centralized marketplace for specific assets and offers liquidity to the traders via funds locked in smart contracts.

It is required to create viable automated market makers (AMM) and to define borrow-lend protocols. On-chain insurance and yield farming-like processes also need to leverage these pools. Besides these, liquidity pools are also essential for blockchain gaming and synthetic funds/assets.

Keep in mind that different smart contracts support different liquidity pools. So, make a choice accordingly. 

Smart Contracts

Smart contract introduction is a strategy that requires to bring digital currency on your exchange. This approach facilitates P2P trading without the need for an intermediary while maintaining the utmost transparency and speed on your exchange.

Smart contract

Implementation of smart contracts on your decentralized platform allows seamless transactions. Smart Contract Developers can integrate consistency and stability through smart contracts in your platform. Besides this, the verification process automates too. Above all, it is crucial for gaining traders’ and investors’ trust. 

Vampire Attack in decentralised exchange

The security aspect of a decentralized exchange can’t be of a top-notch level unless a remedial approach to deal with vampire attacks does not implements. A vampire attack is malpractice in cryptocurrency that involves better rates than a particular protocol to steal customers of a particular platform. The main aim of this attack is to steal the liquidity, users, and trading volume of a platform. While creating a decentralized platform, having enough protection is crucial.

Wrapping Up

Decentralized platforms are paving their way towards a better digital world and are playing a crucial role in the development of a quick, secure, and flexible digital platform landscape. 

For traders, a decentralized exchange is a practicable way to fix the inflexibility and restrictions imposed via traditional crypto exchanges. So, if you haven’t thought of developing a decentralized platform till now then do it now as the future of this technology seems promising.
