GMX, an Arbitrum-powered decentralized exchange, announced the launch of its new version On Thursday. The newest version comes with advanced features providing a seamless experience to its users. A notable enhancement is that the new version supports the DOGE pool, a beloved cryptocurrency in the market. This model of the trading platform garnered around $1.2 million for its liquidity pool in the subtle launch that followed. The new version (V2) will operate alongside the current GMX platform but with an expanded list of tradable assets like the dogecoin (DOGE). The idea behind this strategic approach is to attract a larger user base and drive company growth.

Liquidity providers can lock their tokens on GMX earning a percentage of fees generated through leverage trading, swaps, and borrowing. Each  GM pool contains long tokens, which bet on higher prices and short tokens betting on lower prices, and index pool tokens. 

GMX’s pool contains popular digital assets like Litecoin, Solana, XRP, Dogecoin, and Arbitrum within the Arbitrum network. Additionally, the cryptocurrencies like SOL, XRP, LTC, and DOGE are on the Avalanche network as well. Through the use of version 2, the investors can enjoy lower trading fees and earn passive rewards by providing liquidity for the pools. As per the reports on Friday, the GM pool for dogecoin was expected to offer an annualized percentage yield of 45%, and the Solana pool to offer 47%. The rates are subjected to fluctuations depending on the market condition. 


As the cryptocurrency market continues to evolve, GMX’s commitment to delivering innovative and user-centric solutions has the potential to reshape the future. With the expansion in digital asset offerings and enhanced user experience, GMX has secured a position as the most popular decentralized exchange platform. The data depicts that GMX has traded over $117 billion worth of tokens generating $184 million in fees for its Arbitrum network alone. The launch of the new version has undoubtedly added more traders to its community and could eventually drive up the value of its governance token, GMX.
