“There will be no more central checkpoints or protocol errors,” they said before going on to say that “all aspects of the protocol that can be controlled are fully controlled by the community” ????.

dYdX had a record year in 2021 and grew into one of the most prominent teams based on Ethereum using its smart contract and the cumulative packages Starkware Zero-Knowledge.
In September last year, the derivatives exchange distributed the dYdX governance token with an overwhelming roar from its 64,306 authorized users and the broader crypto community. Average customers who traded between $ 1,000 and $ 10,000 prior to the retrospective close date could claim 1,163 DYDX, which is $ 16,561 at that point.
After the airdrop, momentum for the project picked up and was quantified as the exchange exceeded the daily transaction volume of the global exchange Coinbase ($ 4.3 billion to $ 3.7 billion) for the first time in its history.. As a result, the asset rose to an all-time high of $ 27.78 on September 30, but has now fallen nearly 75% to a price of $ 7.20 in the face of a wider market correction.
