Token Security

DDX does not have an elastic supply or rebase mechanism. The token contract appears to implement the standard openzeppelin libraries in addition to the diamond standard.

The total token supply is capped at 100M tokens and it is emitted over a 10-year period. The current circulating supply is 26,094,663

The top 10 holders of DDX are the following (To Be Determined):

Rank1: gnosis multisig
Rank2: team/founder
Rank3: team/founder
Rank4: investor
Rank5: team/investor/exchange
Rank6: team/investor/exchange
Rank7: team/investor/exchange
Rank8: team/investor/exchange
Rank9: team/investor/exchange

DerivaDAO is the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that governs DerivaDEX, a decentralized exchange (DEX) for derivative contracts built on Ethereum. It features an open order book and on-chain settlement, and leverages off-chain price feeds, matching engines, and liquidation operators to enable fast and efficient transactions of synthetic assets.

Deposits and withdrawals (of USDC) are handled on Ethereum, whereas all trading and other exchange-related transactions occur on the DerivaDEX operator network. Two tranches of insurance funds, “staked” (from insurance mining) and “organic” (from USD-paid fees) are managed by the DerivaDAO and used to backstop traders against auto-deleveraging.


  • 100,000,000 DDX are emitted over a 10-year period. There is no additional supply or inflation planned for DDX
  • 50 million DDX are emitted initially as part of the genesis supply. This is referred to as “genesis token emission” throughout.
  • 50 million DDX are emitted over a 10-year period as part of the liquidity mining supply.

  • 660,000 DDX for an advisor allocation


The DerivaDAO manages more than the supply of DDX tokens. The DerivaDAO is also responsible for managing all parameters of the exchange: listing products, determining the capitalization of the insurance fund, setting trading fees. A unique feature of DerivaDEX is the requirement for the exchange to build and maintain a healthy insurance fund . Unlike centralized exchanges, this DAO-managed fund will have transparent parameters set via governance.

The management of this fund’s size and implementation is the responsibility of DerivaDAO participants. This resource will be initially capitalized by the insurance mining program, and later capitalized via trading fees and liquidations. The collateral types that are accepted to the insurance fund, and the balancing of various collateral types, is subject to DerivaDAO governance.

Community and Communication

The DerivaDAO team operates an official Twitter and medium account. The repositories for their code is hosted on GitLab. There is a Discord channel that is available to their community. The official documentation is hosted on TBD. There is also a governance app that’s available to their community members for governance and a forum as well.

Available Audits

All DerivaDEX code related to governance, token emission, and insurance mining has been audited by Quantstamp, including specification review, manual review of code as well as testing and automated analysis. The full code review can be found here.

Full disclosure, I am a DDX holder.

The liquidity for DDX on DEXes is low for this token:



Uniswap V3:

but it was recently listed on coinbase and I think that the trading volume for DDX should pick up after their exchange goes live (currently on public testnet). There is an opportunity for us to build liquidity before that happens and if the volume picks up then some of those trades could make their way in our direction.
