In this episode of the DeFi Download, Piers Ridyard is joined by Florian and Lukas, co-founders of Ociswap. Ociswap is the first Radix native decentralised exchange going live with Babylon with a focus on concentrated liquidity, capital efficiency and protocol-owned liquidity.
For exchanging your preferred cryptocurrencies on RadixDLT, Ociswap will offer a secure, trustless, and self-custodial environment. On the very first day of the Babylon update, it will debut as the first pairwise DEX that is native to Radix.
The Ociswap team is looking towards protocol-owned liquidity and ways to lessen the effects of impermanent loss in addition to providing capital-efficient Automated Market Maker capabilities.
