Host Tom Shaughnessy of Delphi Digital ( is joined by Alex Wearn, the Co-Founder & CEO of IDEX.  

This is a very interesting episode as we discuss how IDEX, a sleeping giant, grew to become the largest decentralized exchange and smart contract on Ethereum.

We discuss competition with other DEXs, centralized exchanges like Binance and Coinbase and hybrid competition. 

We also dive into IDEX’s future, discussing its two tokens; one membership token and one staking token, the future of governance on IDEX and some details on its layer-2 solution to increase throughput.

Frankly, I had no idea IDEX had this much going on, and Alex shares some extremely insightful details around the entire IDEX roadmap.
