Polkadex partners with Supercomputing Systems AG

One of the most interesting features that Polkadex is bringing to the market is high-frequency trading on an orderbook-based DEX. We have strong partners helping us to build the core technology to allow adding HFT.

What is the collaboration?

Polkadex OU is developing a TEE-inspired Layer 2 technology on Substrate.io in partnership with Supercomputing Systems AG. This collaboration is crucial for delivering the full functionality of Polkadex Orderbook.

Polkadex Orderbook is a non-custodial peer-to-peer Layer 2 based
cryptocurrency exchange built on the Polkadex Network.

SCS AG, a company based in Zurich, Switzerland, brings to the table 25 years of experience in electronics, software and system design.

What is the technology we are building?

The unique technology called SubstraTEE, Trusted Execution Environment on Substrate, is a framework for Parity Substrate allowing to call a custom state transition function (STF) inside a (TEE), namely an Intel SGX enclave thereby providing confidentiality and integrity.

The enclaves operate on an encrypted state which can be read and written only by a set of provisioned and remote-attested enclaves. The project is supported by grants from the Web3 Foundation and the Polkadot treasury.

“TEE helps to maximize the throughput and performance of a decentralized exchange. It creates an operator acting simply as a trade facilitator with no access to customer funds, thus making the trading process efficient and safe”, said Gautham J, CEO, Polkadex.

“SubstraTEE technology is a great fit for the goals of Polkadex, as it provides a high level of user funds security in a cryptocurrency exchange without compromising customer experience”, said Alain Brenzikofer, Department Head at SCS and co-founder of integritee.network, a parachain candidate deploying SubstraTEE as a platform.

Why is it important?

Once the technology development is completed, Polkadex will be the first
decentralized exchange that leverages SubstraTEE power to improve the
trading experience while keeping the highest level of distributed security.
