dYdX v4 is the latest iteration of dYdX, one of the most prominent decentralized exchanges and premier trading platform for cryptocurrency. The DEX initially launched as an Ethereum-based Layer 2 solution and has now made a significant move by transitioning to its dedicated blockchain, known as the dYdX Chain (or dYdX v4), built using the Cosmos SDK. We've compiled all the essential information about the chain, complete with an in-depth exploration of their move to Cosmos and Chorus One's ongoing involvement with dYdX since the very outset in a comprehensive guide. Check it out here.
There are various utilities of the dYdX v4 token, DYDX, and amongst the most popular use cases are to engage in governance proposals and participate in staking.
To use and stake DYDX, the dYdX Chain needs to onboard users from various platforms, including rollups, Ethereum L1, other app-chains, and centralized exchanges, to its Cosmos version. To simplify the process and make staking on Cosmos a breeze for our customers, we have developed a novel solution that enables you to move your DYDX tokens from Ethereum to Cosmos and stake them with Chorus One in a swift, seamless transaction. If you wish to bridge your DYDX from Ethereum to Cosmos, check out our detailed guide here.
