DeGate Ecosystem Update

October 2021

Welcome to DeGate October Ecosystem Update!

DeGate is building an orderbook-centric decentralized trading protocol. DeGate is built on Ethereum Layer 2 and operates a special “Layer 3 Match Node” for matching orders, equipped with zero-knowledge technology.

We are excited to update you on what we have been up to in October!

Product & Tech Update

DeGate Bridge

DeGate Bridge has demonstrated to be among the best bridges between Ethereum Layer 1 and Layer 2- Arbitrum network.

The DeGate Bridge is intended to foster the development and accessibility of Layer 2 and therefore is provided free of charge by DeGate, only gas costs apply.

To boost the awareness of DeGate L1- L2 Bridge, a Twitter contest has been launched, inviting the community members to like and RT the post about DeGate Bridge, this way getting the opportunity to win bounties in the form of $DG tokens.

DeGate Layer 3

DeGate DEX is built on Ethereum Layer 2, Arbitrum, and operates a special “Layer 3 Match Node”. In the last week of October, the first DeGate Layer 3 Block with Zero Knowledge-Proof (including Order Book transactions) was verified by DeGate L2 smart contract. This marks a milestone in DeGate DEX development and demonstrates our commitment to our development roadmap.

Ultra-Efficient Gas- Saving (UEGS)

Ultra-Efficient Gas-Saving (UEGS) technology holds great potential to further lower gas costs when trading on DeGate DEX. The team of contributors at DeGate have been actively exploring this opportunity during October, and a significant process has been achieved. Our research findings suggest that UEGS is probably feasible, detailed technical designs are still being studied. The contributors expect the technical designs to be complete in November, with implementation thereafter.

DeGate Community Ambassadors

DeGate is a protocol for the community and is keen to encourage like-minded community members to get involved.

The recruitment drive for the second round of DeGate DCAs was completed, with the number of DCAs reaching 32 and the total number of the community members reaching 7829. An AMA for DeGate DCAs was conducted in October to share more on developments in DeGate and brainstorm activities to involve the wider DeGate community further.
