The migration of DeFi protocols to Ethereum L2 will be the real battlefield of derivatives in the DeFi space. Once built on Ethereum L2, perpetual swaps, the most popular way of trading cryptocurrencies, will be able to realize their full potential. The launch of MCDEX on Arbitrum is revolutionary and we are excited to launch our testnet on Arbitrum Rollup, which we chose for its visible product readiness and its smooth and developer-friendly capabilities for porting code. …

Liu Jie, our CEO, believes that the high Ethereum gas fee has severely constrained the development of the MCDEX decentralized perpetual swaps. While MCDEX is actively exploring L2 rollup plans, we are also looking for other plausible public chains. In Liu Jie’s opinion, there are several essential aspects that DeFi developers need to pay attention to — speed and fee, asset size and diversity, the compatibility across the public chain and Ethereum EVM, and the cost for user migration across chains.

Zora: Welcome to today’s “Blockchain 101”. We invited Liu Jie From MCDEX to talk about what DeFi participants can do to deal with the current expensive gas fee situation. …

Proposal 14: Reduce mining reward to 0.2MCB/Block

Currently, the Etheruem Gas Price is extremely high (about 500 gwei), which is beyond our design (below 10 gwei). As a result, the trading cost (gas + fee) is too high for the traders. The platform is not able to make a profit from the fee. Besides, due to the current AMM’s design, the slippage is high, and capital efficiency is low.

The team is working hard to deal with the following problems:

  • Development of MC-Fund: As MC-Fund raises funds and trades at large volumes, the gas fee problem could then be ignored. …
