Updated October 11th, 2022

What is Algodex?

Algodex is a decentralized marketplace where users can trade Algorand Standard Assets (ASAs). Our order-book model is the first of its kind on the Algorand blockchain, which gives users full control over their trades. Algodex's feature-packed platform brings a unique way of trading to the Algorand ecosystem.

How does Algodex work?

Algodex uses Algorand smart contracts to create an order book mechanism for Algorand Standard Assets (ASA) that allows users to transact any ASA at a price the user chooses. Users can add or fulfill orders from the order book using Algodex's online interface. Learn more about Algodex and how it works by reading our whitepaper.

I am from North America. Why are some tokens restricted?
