dYdX Initiates Token Migration Following Layer-1 Blockchain Inception

dYdX Initiates Token Migration Following Layer-1 Blockchain Inception


DateOct 30, 2023

Antonio Juliano, the founder of dYdX, announced on Twitter on 28 October 2023, regarding impending substantial transfers of $DYDX tokens in the following days. This alert is in alignment with dYdX Trading Inc. and other locked token holders' plans to migrate tokens to the dYdX Chain, which will be recorded as transfers on both Ethereum and the dYdX Chain. It's pertinent to note that these tokens will remain locked and are not slated for sale.

Launch of the dYdX Layer-1 Blockchain

A subsequent media report shed light on the successful launch of dYdX's layer-1 blockchain, heralded by the production of its genesis block. This blockchain will be powered by DYDX tokens native to the platform. The dYdX Chain is structured to compensate validator and staker fees in US Dollars, encompassing trading costs and gas fees for transactions denominated in either DYDX or USDC.

Empowered by CometBFT as its consensus mechanism, the proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain was developed utilizing the Cosmos software development kit. The launch was contingent on firms like Circle and Coinbase extending their services on Cosmos before the genesis block's release, as emphasized by Juliano.

Community Accord and Augmented Token Utility

Before the dYdX’s native layer-1 chain introduction, the original DYDX operated as an ERC-20 token on dYdX's initial Ethereum layer-2 protocol. The seamless transition to its own layer-1 chain was facilitated by community consensus which embraced DYDX as the L1 token of the dYdX Chain, established a one-way bridge from Ethereum to the dYdX Chain, and accorded wrapped Ethereum DYDX (wethDYDX) the same governance utility as ethDYDX in dYdX v3.
