The #1 objective at 0x in 2019 is liquidity. Today, cofounders Will Warren and Amir Bandeali join us to share their roadmap for the next 12 months, discussing their work in the realm of ZIEPs and 0x Mesh, the team’s collaboration with StarkWare, and the proposed changes to the 0x token economics model
The ZRX token was created to facilitate governance for 0x as a public piece of infrastructure. It gave the community voting rights and was baked into the settlement layer as a way to collect fees. The idea was to get the token into the hands of the platform’s users. But soon after launch, the team realized their hypothesis was wrong, and they have spent the last 18 months developing a new token economics model that rewards liquidity providers.
Will Warren and Amir Bandeali are the cofounders of 0x, an open protocol that enables the peer-to-peer exchange of assets on the Ethereum blockchain. Today, Will and Amir join us to share the 0x origin story, explaining how their own need for DEX infrastructure informed the creation of the protocol. They walk us through the team’s 2019 roadmap, offering insight around why liquidity is their #1 objective.
Will and Amir discuss their work in the realm of ZIEPs, the team’s collaboration with StarkWare, and the introduction of 0x Mesh—as an alternative to the standard relayer API. They also weigh in on the differences among the open order book, matching and coordinator relayer models, addressing the pros and cons of each. Listen in to understand the proposed changes to the 0x token economics model and learn how it scales with gas prices to reward liquidity providers!
