MDX Token (MDX) is a token implemented as an ERC20 smart contract. It was created by the MDEX company headquartered in Singapore. MDX powers a decentralized transaction protocol MDEX deployed on Heco (Huobi Eco Chain), BSC (Binance Smart Chain), and Ethereum. MDEX stands for Mandala exchange, which was founded in 2017. On January 6, 2021, the Mandala exchange project was introduced on the internet and the MDEX ecological fund, worth $15 million was established.
The exchange aims to be the number one choice for eco-token transactions developing the largest compound DeFi ecosystem that integrates DEX, IMO, and DAO. The MDEX team is passionate about building a platform that combines one-stop liquidity services with a secure, reliable, fast, rewarding, and cost-effective trading experience.
In March 2021, MDEX version 2 was launched providing users with a faster and more secured platform, improved features, and almost zero fees. The company is a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) system and it accounts for over 50% of the global DEX trading volume. Its transparent rules are controlled by its members.
In April 2021 MDEX was launched on BSC which supports single token mining, liquidity mining, trading mining, and asset cross-chain. The Boardroom (Board of Directors) mechanism was launched to start boardroom rewards, and the MDEX ecological fund, which is worth $15 million MDEX was established. MDEX Bridge was implemented to complete cross-chain transactions between Heco, ETH, and BSC.
To increase the safety of users' assets and transactions the exchange has undergone several security audits by such agencies as CertiK, Slow Mist, and Fairyproof, which have confirmed its complete safety. Moreover, MDEX has launched a Bug Bounty Campaign supported by audit agencies. It aims to encourage security industry professionals to take part in safe MDEX environment creation. Rewards are issued in the form of MDX tokens according to the severity of the errors found and the difficulty of detecting them.
MDEX key features
MDEX has several unique features that distinguish it from other platforms. They are Automated Market Maker, dual mining mechanism, fundraising, and an innovation zone.
Automated Market Maker (AMM). For users and project developers MDEX implements an AMM mechanism to support the process of building and launching applications at high velocity. It facilitates low slippages for trades, good market depth, and high yields for transaction and liquidity miners, which makes it an attractive environment for DeFi projects.
Dual mining mechanism. The MDEX protocol utilizes a dual mining mechanism that includes both liquidity and transaction mining to maximize profits for participants and ensure transactions security.
Trading mining. This feature allows users to get rewards for every trade they make. The rewards help stimulate more trading activity on the DEX, resulting in more liquidity and more trading opportunities.
Liquidity mining. Users can benefit by staking LP after adding liquidity on HECO or BSC.
MDEX supports a ‘repurchase and burn’ and ‘repurchase and reward’ model to decrease the circulating supply of the MDX token and drive its value up.
Fundraising. The MDEX platform can be utilized to raise funds through the Initial MDEX Offering (IMO) protocol based on the public swap function. All users can apply for swap shares through their Heco and BSC trust wallets after adding liquidity in the MDX/HT, MDX/WBNB pool. The number of newly issued IMO tokens depends on the users' contribution ratio. When the sale is over the remaining funds are returned to users' wallets.
Innovation Zone. It is a trading area developed for users who want to trade innovative tokens that are considered to be more volatile and risky than others.
MDX is the native utility token of the MDEX exchange. The total token supply is capped at 400 million coins. The MDX coins are allocated in the following way: 10% will be given to the team as a reward for technology development in 24 months after the protocol’s launch, early investors will get 7% in 12 months after the launch, 3% is intended for marketing and brand building, and 80% goes to liquidity and transaction mining.
A block appears every 3 seconds with a maximum speed of 500 TPS. After the first halving in June 2021, the block reward was reduced from 80 MDX per block to 40 MDX. The halving is planned to happen every six months.
MDX tokens can be used for various purposes, including trading, yield rewards, boardroom rewards, fundraising, proposing and voting on listings, representing the governance rights of holders, and repurchasing. Users can buy MDX on some of the top exchanges including Huobi Global, Gate.io, the MDEX exchange, and Binance.
MDEX GAS fee is $0.001 and the transaction fee is 0.3%. The platform allows users to earn the commission back through mining. Fees generated through trading are reserved in the corresponding LP pools. When users create liquidity the transaction fee is added to the smart contract in the form of LP. The 66% of commissions are utilized to repurchase and burn the MDX token and to buy HT from the secondary market to airdrop to MDX. 14% of this fee is used to reward members who mine the token, and 0.1% goes to support ecological projects.
