Right this moment, Cosmos community validator B-Harvest, and Tendermint, the blockchain infrastructure supplier for Cosmos, collectively introduced they’ve efficiently launched and deployed the Gravity DEX protocol.
Gravity DEX marks the largest stride ahead for Cosmos to this point. It additionally marks an enormous step in realizing the Cosmos imaginative and prescient for the way forward for crypto: a number of interconnected blockchains.
Past its influence as a cross-chain decentralized change, Gravity DEX unlocks important quantities of utility for the Cosmos Hub; encouraging new chains to commerce and create liquidity, enabling extra merchants to begin arbitrating, and serving to builders uncover a brand new path for permissionless token listings.
Presently, the Cosmos ecosystem is price greater than $65B. This ecosystem contains Cosmos Hub, Binance Chain, Terra, Crypto.com, THORChain, and lots of different initiatives. Gravity DEX allows permissionless swaps and swimming pools of belongings between any two blockchains on this rising ecosystem.
“Other than the bigger, extra widely known initiatives, many tokens within the Cosmos ecosystem have been traditionally exhausting to buy. Many early-stage initiatives with unimaginable potential aren’t out there on a lot of the centralized exchanges; however Gravity DEX supplies instant entry to all of those hard-to-buy tokens, reminiscent of Regen Community, Akash, Sentinel, Persistence, and IRISnet.”

Gravity DEX Options
To broaden consumer accessibility, the Gravity DEX improves worth fashions and reduces transaction charges.
The Gravity DEX protocol will democratize DeFi by reducing transaction charges — to a median of $0.08. This assures buying and selling is environment friendly and accessible for everybody.
Most significantly, Gravity DEX makes use of an innovation referred to as the Equal Swap Worth Mannequin (ESPM) that improves worth discovery by touchdown on exactly the newest swap worth. This worth mannequin makes it truthful for merchants whereas moreover guaranteeing that the value you see is the value you get.
Additional, bettering upon the Uniswap mannequin, the Gravity DEX protocol makes use of batch execution to take away the opportunity of front-running or worth manipulation. With batch execution, orders in the identical block are processed concurrently and handled equally. This removes the likelihood for front-running.
How To Use Gravity DEX: Introducing Emeris
Final week, Tendermint introduced Emeris: a one-stop portal for all crypto apps, whatever the blockchain the app runs on. Emeris will even be the primary platform to assist the Gravity DEX protocol.
The beta model of Emeris is ready to launch within the coming days. Plus, because of the assist of the Gravity DEX protocol, Emeris will allow customers to expertise cross-chain DeFi on Cosmos for the primary time.
Subsequently, starting with cross-chain token transfers and swaps, Emeris plans to develop to allow entry to decentralized functions constructed on numerous blockchains, all from inside a single interface.
Gravity Bridge: Connecting Ethereum to Cosmos
Past the cross-chain buying and selling of Cosmos tokens; work is underway to attach main chains to Cosmos. Essentially the most superior work going down is on the Gravity Bridge to Ethereum. This bridge is scheduled to be proposed as an improve to the Cosmos Hub in Q3 2021.
The Gravity Bridge is a safe, environment friendly, and decentralized cross-chain bridge to Ethereum. The bridge will permit Ethereum’s substantial worth and liquidity to move into the Cosmos Hub, enriching the Gravity DEX market, and enabling the Ethereum neighborhood to purchase Cosmos tokens on DEXs like Uniswap.
“With the Gravity DEX protocol going dwell at present and Emeris beta launching imminently; Cosmos is primed to change into a number one ecosystem within the DeFi house. We’re excited to stage the DeFi enjoying subject and make buying and selling accessible to all customers. We’re constructing the Web of Blockchains, and the Gravity DEX deployment is just the start.”
