A Deep Dive Into GMX

Quick Take

  • Launched in September 2021, GMX is a spot and margin trading exchange on Arbitrum and Avalanche.
  • GMX’s main selling point is their zero-slippage trades enabled by the GLP pool, a shared liquidity pool comprising various assets with different weightings.
  • GMX’s protocol and user metrics have performed exceptionally well in 2022, especially from Q3 onwards.
  • This growth was fueled by GMX’s “real yield” narrative where the protocol shares its revenue with stakers and holders of GMX and GLP tokens.
