Decentralized exchanges have several advantages, the most notable of which are anonymous and peer-to-peer transactions. However, many are difficult to use and have low trading volumes. Currently, AMM confronts the difficulty of resolving issues such as slippage and impermanent losses in the DeFi landscape. DODO Exchange employs a modified formula known as a Proactive Market Maker (PMM), which delivers low slippage to address this issue. 

So, what makes DODO Exchange different from the other DEXs? Can DODO Exchange “knock out” all of its AMM rivals? Is DODO Exchange a good investment? Follow this article below to understand more about DODO Exchange.

What is DoDo Exchange?

DoDo Exchange is a decentralized exchange leveraging the Proactive Market Maker (PMM) algorithm built on Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Focused on making DeFi liquidity more accessible, DODO’s permissionless product suite consists of SmartTrade trading and aggregation, Crowdpooling/Initial DEX Offerings (IDOs), pools, and mining.

What is DoDo Exchange v2?

The impermanent loss suffered in Uniswap liquidity pools ends up as a permanent loss all too often. Other AMMs are a turnoff for traders due to the massive slippage that can occur with larger orders. These two factors are what make DODO such an innovation in the decentralized exchange space. With the advent of DODO v2, launched on February 22th, the platform is entering its next phase of development.

One of the concerns about the platform is that the LPs might still lose money without sufficient trading volume if the overall fees for providing liquidity are too low. For LPs to earn persistent profits, trading volume must rise constantly.

The DODO team is addressing this in DODO v2 by introducing new incentives for traders, pool builders, and liquidity providers. The team recognizes that token reward is a successful method of acquiring new users. The DODO team has created many token incentive schemes to attract users. 

What is DODO token?

DODO is the DODO platform's native governance token, and it serves as the ecosystem's governance as well as a reward for Liquidity mining.

In terms of ecosystem governance, DODO splits the process into three stages:

  1. Admin DAO (due to expire at the end of 2021): The highest decision-making authority is in charge of the whole DODO ecosystem and has the authority to modify how the other two DAOs operate.
  2. DAO Risk Control (2021): In charge of modifying and fine-tuning different risk factors.
  3. Earn DAO (2021): This DAO handles income distribution on the DODO network.


The DODO NFT Vault is price discovery and liquidity protocol for non-standard assets, which allows users to create new NFTs or use existing NFTs and pledge them into the DODO NFT Vault. The Vault is established to create liquidity pools to trade these NFT pieces. 

Those pieces can be kept unique or fractionalized to divide the NFTs in the Vault into many pieces with fungible tokens issued to represent them. 

How does DODO Exchange work? 

The Proactive Market Maker model of DODO Exchange uses off-chain price oracles to provide real-time, accurate pricing information about the assets on the platform. The data provided by the oracle then be used to calculate the ideal market price. This PMM model encourages only arbitrage trading that helps to ensure the exchange price matches that of the market price. 

DODO Exchange's outstanding features:

  • Low slippage: As AMM is designed to take advantage of Oracle pricing, DODO prices will have comparatively low slippage.
  • Low opportunity cost risk: Users can deposit a certain portion of their assets to the Pool and then unstake at any moment while still receiving the incentive from the trading pair.
  • No impermanent loss: Users will receive back in full their deposit without any losses.

Is DODO a good investment? 

About the project idea, DODO has offered a solution to the existing AMM dilemmas of impermanent loss and opportunity cost risk by integrating AMM and Oracle. Even for lightly traded tokens, the adoption of Proactive Market Maker technology has ensured a more stable asset price and more efficient liquidity. Furthermore, DODO smart contracts have been audited by PeckShield & Trail of Bits.

The services provided are unique and currently expanding. Crowdpooling, IDO allocations, trader mining, NFT vaults, the DODO Vending Machine, and private liquidity pools have all led to a more robust platform with higher trading volumes. This, in turn, keeps the platform stable and makes it more appealing to traders and liquidity providers.

DODO is backed by a number of well-known investors such as Framework Ventures, DeFiance Capital, Pantera Capital, and others. Their team consists of three big influencers in China's DeFi Community: Mingda Lei, Qi Wang, and Diane Dai.
