What is DODO?

What is DODO?

DODO is a decentralized exchange platform based on the Proactive Market Maker (PMM) algorithm. It enables liquidity providers and market makers to concentrate funds and use a number of solutions and products.

DODO's SmartTrade solution also makes it easier to find the most profitable order routing across various aggregated liquidity sources in an attempt to offer the most attractive rates.

In addition, DODO’s tools enable Crowdpooling, Initial DEX offerings (IDOs), pools and mining.

DODO Basics

DODO was launched by Diane Dye and Radar Bear in August 2020. The project’s investors included Pantera Capital, Three Arrows Capital, and Binance Labs.

The protocol’s central component is DODO’s original Proactive Market Maker (PMM) algorithm, which offers users smooth interaction with DeFi.

The PMM model is different from the more common, non-constant function market maker model. In this model, parameters, including asset ratio and curve slope, are often flexibly set. Meanwhile, an oracle machine can be introduced for on-chain guidance of prices or price discovery by the market. This oracle also helps gather more funds near the market value and provides sufficient liquidity.

Among the protocol’s most crucial advantages are deep liquidity and optimal price matching.
