Felman explained that while there are no gas fees on Starkware layer 2, which is where dydx is built, this brings me to my next point: it's incredibly fast. Unlike other layer 2 and high speed dexes, you don't actually have to wait to withdraw your assets anymore. Additionally, by using stockware, users gain increased security and privacy. My personal favorite feature of dydx is the cross margin feature, which means that users can seat one account with usdc and trade across multiple markets from there without needing to start sub-accounts. The iOS mobile app is also live right now and it's amazing because it's compatible with metamask coinbase wallet, coin 98 hobby wallet, and a lot of the most popular mobile wallets. Finally, one exciting opportunity at dydx is their competitions, which have won over 95,000 rewards so far. If you're already trading, dydx recommends that you get paid to do it so head on over to to learn more.
