The breakdown of topics:

  • Order book vs. AMM
  • Order book leader (dYdX)
  • AMM improvements

Some things to ponder upon :thinking:
Significant drawbacks of a DEX order book namely, for the sake of transaction depth, the degree of decentralization can only be sacrificed.
Next, the dYdX two-layer network is suitable for transactions. Still, its token needs to be carefully scrutinized (it is not just overly centralized, BSC is also centralized but performs well, the key is to capture the value of the network).
Thirdly, DEX under the AMM mechanism has not yet formed a dominant situation. The weakness of AMM, as mentioned earlier, is that it is challenging to combine slippage with volatile losses.
