After the Autonomous Agents are released on livenet, we’ll have a lot of tokens. Stablecoins, shares in prediction markets, synthetic assets, portfolio tokens, many others, and certainly something that we can’t even imagine today. We’ll need an easy way to trade them and ensure that access to trading is as open as possible. This is what a decentralized exchange (DEX) would provide.
Autonomous Agents is an excellent tool for developing decentralized applications and while the DEX will enable trading of mostly AA-issued tokens, the DEX itself will also be AA-based.
AAs and ODEX are expected to go live in January/February 2020.
