One of the most groundbreaking advancements to come out from within the realm of blockchain technology is the concept of a decentralized exchange. In its most basic form, a DEX can be thought of as a cryptocurrency buy/sell platform that allows its users to facilitate monetary exchanges without the need of any assets having to make their way to the exchange itself, reducing the risk of thefts, hacks and other human-related errors. Furthermore, owing to their intrinsic design, DEXs are better equipped to prevent issues such as price manipulation, trade volume inflation, etc.
