A Visual Way to Understand the Pros and Cons of a Decentralized Exchange

"This is a short and no way comprehensive analysis on the pros and cons of centralized versus decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges. By the end you should have enough information to figure out which is for you — or at least be the new “expert” on centralized exchanges around the water cooler."

The Myth of The Infrastructure Phase

"Our hypothesis is that this is not actually how things play out. We are not in an infrastructure phase, but rather in another turn of the apps-infrastructure cycle. And in fact, the history of new technologies shows that apps beget infrastructure, not the other way around. It’s not that first we build all the infrastructure, and once we have the infrastructure we need, we begin to build apps. It’s exactly the opposite."

What is 0x?

"0x is a protocol for the decentralized trading of assets on Ethereum. 0x's most appealing property is its use of off-chain order relay and on-chain settlement. Off-chain order relay allows orders to be created cheaply - users don't have to post a transaction on the blockchain, they just need to sign an order with their private key. Only when the order is executed is the blockchain involved. Because order books contain low value and high volume information, the offloading of the order book from the blockchain makes sense and will make any decentralized exchange built on 0x not only cheap to use, but highly efficient."
