We’re excited to announce the dYdX Chain Github repositories are now fully public! Our introduction of the dYdX Chain (v4) was the first step toward making dYdX fully decentralized and transparent—making the code public is the next step. All core repositories, including the validator software, indexer, web front end, and supporting libraries are now public on GitHub.
The dYdX Chain code is still being tested (try out the Testnet!) and we aim to release the production ready code later this year. Once complete, we encourage the community to use these repositories as a starting point to grow the dYdX ecosystem.

List of public repos
v4-abacus - Shared client business logic used across both web and mobile
v4-web - The web front end for the dYdX Chain
v4-localization - Translations for all copy across the web and mobile apps
v4-documentation - dYdX Chain documentation
v4-testnets - Coordination repos for previous testnets
v4-infrastructure - Terraform for indexer deployments, metrics ingestor, indexer dashboards and monitors
The repos are currently available to the public under a Business Source License (BSL) as the code is not yet production ready. After Testnet, when the first production version of the software is released, the licenses will transition to an open source license (GNU Affero GPL).
About dYdX and Terms
Here at dYdX, our mission is to democratize access to financial opportunity. We believe the release of v4 software, the dYdX Chain, will represent notable progress in service of that mission. The events that have transpired over the last year have only reinforced the need for open, transparent, and permissionless financial products. We’re excited for v4 software to better meet those needs.
To ask additional questions, join the discussion on Discord, participate in the dYdX community, or follow us on Twitter. We’re excited to continue building the dYdX Chain and will continue to release updates over the coming months.
