Dextr: Revolutionizing DEXperience

We at Dextr started with one goal in mind: to create the easiest and most familiar way for you to trade crypto, without giving up the trust and benefits of a decentralized exchange (DEX).

We know how confusing and frustrating other DEXs can be. That’s why we built Dextr to feel just like the centralized exchanges you’re already used to but with the added power and control of DEXs.

So, what makes Dextr different? We built Dextr to grow with you.

Think of Dextr as your trading guide:

Whether you’re new to crypto or a seasoned pro, we’ve got you covered.

  • Degen Mode: This is your “getting started” buddy. It keeps things simple with easy swaps and a user-friendly interface, perfect for beginners. No need to worry about all the complexities — just jump in and start trading!
  • Pro Mode: Ready to take your trading to the next level? Pro Mode unlocks advanced features like order books, algorithmic trading bots, and more. It’s like having a whole toolbox of options at your fingertips, so you can trade like a pro.

Security built-in, not bolted on:

Traditional crypto wallets are like locked boxes — they hold your crypto, but they’re not very flexible and can be vulnerable. That’s why Dextr uses something called Modular Smart Accounts.

Think of it as a smarter, safer way to manage your crypto. It’s built on cutting-edge technology (Account Abstraction) and offers features that regular wallets simply can’t, like:

  • Social Recovery: Ever lose your Private Keys? With Dextr, you can choose trusted friends or family to help you regain access to your smart account, so your crypto never gets locked away.
  • On-chain Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Add an extra layer of security to your smart account with on-chain MFA. This means even if someone gets your private keys, they still won’t be able to drain your crypto.
  • Decentralized Inheritance: Plan for the future. Dextr allows you to designate who inherits your crypto in case of an emergency, ensuring your assets are always protected.

These are just a few of the ways Dextr’s Modular Smart Accounts keep your crypto safe and give you more control. It’s like having the features of a centralized exchange with the freedom and flexibility of a DEX.

Trading made simple: Forget about managing fees!

We understand the frustration that comes with managing fees in traditional DEXs. Juggling multiple tokens just to pay gas fees can be a real pain, often adding unnecessary steps to your trading process.

That’s why Dextr takes a different approach. We’ve integrated Biconomy’s Gas Abstraction Module, a powerful tool that lets you pay gas fees in any supported token. This means you don’t need to hold a separate token just for gas; you can use the tokens you already have in your smart account to cover the cost of your trades.

We’re constantly improving the user experience, so you can focus on what matters most: making profitable trades.

Interoperability Without Bridges: Seamless Cross-Chain Trading

Let’s face it, bridges can be a hassle. They often have centralized aspects, which can raise security concerns, and they can involve long waiting times for transactions. That’s why Dextr utilizes ZetaChain, a revolutionary technology that eliminates the need for bridges altogether.

Apps built on ZetaChain connect to anything in the crypto ecosystem, giving you simple, seamless, and secure access to all of crypto, as if it were all in a single place.

All in all, Dextr isn’t just another DEX. We’re building a platform that puts you, the trader, at the center of the experience. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, Dextr offers the features and security you need to trade with confidence.
