Despite the rapid growth of crypto, it is surprisingly difficult and expensive to get money into and out of the current DeFi ecosystem.
Our user-centric, vertically integrated approach is focused on making on/off ramping as simple, secure and friction-free as possible.
Liquidity is the lifeblood of the global economy, yet right now most of the world’s tokens and assets have their limited liquidity fragmented across platforms and do not work well together.
The Radix platform provides native functionality for projects, developers, communities and market makers to create and access liquidity pools at the call of an API.
Network effects of a public ledger are based on both the number of users and the number of connections between assets/applications on the platform.
By standardizing and simplifying the way financial assets/products are represented on Radix, these asset “code blocks” can be easily composed together at scale.
The assets and products on Radix attract users. Lowering the barriers to entry allows more users to enter the ecosystem.
More users in the ecosystem increases transaction volumes, driving up liquidity and down costs.
Increases in volume and liquidity drives the creation of more assets and products for the user.
Cerberus represents a new generation of consensus protocols, designed and built around a highly sharded data structure enabling unprecedented levels of scale for a distributed ledger.
