In the launch announcement for our Layer 2 system, we shared our plan to launch many new markets throughout the year. Our goal is to be on par with the market selection and liquidity of top-tier centralized exchanges.

Over the upcoming months, we plan to add 1-2 additional markets every week from sectors such as decentralized finance (DeFi), emerging Layer 1 blockchains, and more. To learn about our plans and for the most recent updates regarding dYdX, join our Discord.
