I figured that sharing the WhitePaper of the upcoming NEX Decentralised Exchange would interest a lot of people here. Personally I find it fascinating.
“Neon Exchange (NEX) aims to combine the performance of centralized exchanges with the trust
and security properties of decentralized exchanges. The system consists of three main components:
an off-chain trade matching engine, a smart contract where trades are executed, and a payment
service where global assets such as NEO and GAS can be converted to tokens that can be transfered
directly by smart contracts, making them compatible with the exchange”.
