NEX leverages an off-chain matching engine to enable faster and more complex trades across multiple blockchains such as NEO and Ethereum

Today, cryptocurrencies are primarily traded on centralized exchanges where user
funds are at risk to hackers and platform managers. Decentralized exchanges
(DEXs) allow users to retain control of their funds as trades are mediated by smart
contracts on a blockchain. Unfortunately, today’s DEXs are slow, hard to use, and
are restricted to trades on a single blockchain. Neon Exchange (NEX) is a new
decentralized exchange that solves these problems, leveraging a high performance
off-chain matching engine built with Elixir to handle massive order volume, allow
cross-chain exchange, and support more complex trading APIs. Many people do
not use DEXs because they cannot trade with their national currencies. NEX is the
first DEX that will allow its clients to enter the exchange with fiat currencies such
as USD, powered by a global network of licensed third parties.
Exchange services are critical not just for users of cryptocurrencies, but also for
many other applications built upon blockchain technology. NEX envisions a vibrant
ecosystem of web-based decentralized applications (dApps) running across public
blockchains such as NEO, Bitcoin, and Ethereum. These applications require
tools to interact with, make transactions upon, and send data across chains. To
achieve this vision, NEX is developing the first cross-chain browser extension.
Web applications can use this extension to collect payments for goods in any
digital currency, make trades and transactions across blockchains, and interact with
smart contracts across NEO and Ethereum. All of this cross-chain functionality is
powered and made possible by the NEX off-chain matching engine.
NEX is issuing 50 million tokens to fund development and future expansion, of
which 25 million will be sold to the public. NEX tokens are in the process of being
registered as a security (first in Europe), and will provide holders with a share of
all revenue generated by the exchange and related services. Revenue per user will
be determined by the number of NEX tokens they hold and the length of time they
commit to staking their tokens. The minimum fee share rate is 25%, increasing
linearly to a maximum of 75% when tokens are staked for two years.
