DEXes Rising: Next Chapter, High Performance Orderbook Exchanges on Ethereum
DEXes on Ethereum have hit their stride. Recent growth has been concentrated in on-chain, curve/ reserve based DEX models. With advances in layer 2 such as zkRollup, the next cycle will see scalable & secure orderbook DEXes take root on Ethereum, allowing for true non-custodial trading, not swapping
Learning Cryptography, Part 4: Complexity Theory
As modern computing started to become a reality, and progress accelerated, our vocabulary about computation has increased and so has the complexity around it. Reasoning about computation problems is extremely important as the implications are very far reaching.
Learning Cryptography, Part 2: Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange, Discrete Log Problem & Cyclic Groups
Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange is used for various public key/private key encryption schemes. Security assumptions about the key exchange protocol are guaranteed through the difficulty of breaking the discrete log problem.
Learning Cryptography, Part 1: Finite Fields
Loopring is creating a new “Learning Cryptography” series to educate the wider crypto community about this fascinating field. This series will begin from the basics, and work its way up to the advanced tools that make our scalable 3.0 DEX protocol — which utilizes zero-knowledge proofs — possible.
Loopring Learning Series, Part 4: The Cost of Illiquidity
Ask someone what (il)liquidity is, and you’ll get familiar answers: the cost of trading an asset, the bid/ask spread, something that makes it difficult to buy/sell an asset — or enough of an asset — or finally, in crypto-land, something that punishes many currencies/tokens in the market.
