What is Project Serum (SRM)?

The serum is a brand new decentralized exchange (DEX) for cross-chain trading for the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector.

Built on Solana, Serum was created to address the centralization gaps that exist in the current DeFi space in order to provide the best user experience.

What problem does serum solve?

Centralized: Most DeFi projects today depend on a centralized oracle to provide data.
Cross-chain: Currently, no project completely solves the problem of interacting with other blockchains, still having to depend on 3rd parties.
Speed ​​and Usability: Transactions currently on DeFi take a few minutes (5-10 minutes) to make a transaction and the transaction fees are also very expensive (maybe up to several hundred dollars). Users prefer the fast, cheap execution of centralized exchanges.
Oderbooks: AMM – Automated Market Making is the current DeFi market system that allows users to trade without placing orders, everything is automatic. However, this will not benefit users if the market is volatile, they need to limit orders to protect assets.
Stablecoin: Stablecoin is always valued at 1 USD. But now the USD depends on the bank that issues the USD because of the fear that the bank may go bankrupt at any time.

How Serums Solve Problems?

To solve the above problems, the Serum development team decided to build on the Solana Blockchain platform.

Here are the key ingredients that help Serum solve the problems facing the DeFi space:

Fully Decentralized: Serum allows DeFi projects to derive projects from decentralized oracles, without being dependent on any other platform.
Cross-chain Swaps: Serum DEX also integrates Cross-chain into the platform to help users exchange data and crypto between different blockchains without the need for a 3rd party.
Fast and cheap: Building on the Solana blockchain helps Serum to process transactions many times faster and transaction fees are also extremely cheap.
Orderbooks: Serum DEX with full limit Orderbook. Gives traders complete control over their orders. Orderbook and fully automated on-chain order matching.
Cross-chain contracts: Cross-chain contracts are resolved to easily open positions in synthetic DeFi assets.
