Zug, Oct. 4, 2021 — OccamX, one of the first decentralized exchanges (DEXs) built for the Cardano ecosystem, unveiled its first OccamX DEX demo on Monday — complete with a working solution for the unspent transaction outputs (UTXO) Cardano concurrency challenge.

OccamX is built by the Occam.fi team, a decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem tailor-made for Cardano and backed by official Cardano entities Emurgo and IOHK through cFund. Working closely with its partners and a team of Plutus Pioneer alumni developers, OccamX aims to become the leading DEX solution for Cardano native tokens (CNTs). 

The demo, narrated by Occam.fi technical writer Conor Devlin — author of the concurrency article quoted by Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson — shows for the first time a working solution for the concurrency problem. “Concurrency” is a theoretical problem in UTXO-based accounting models, in which simultaneous interactions with smart contracts occurring within a single transaction pose inherent technical challenges. 

A source of debate within the blockchain community, concurrency needs to be overcome in order to have fast, efficient DEX capabilities on Cardano. Now, in OccamX’s first-of-its-kind demo, viewers can see and verify how two simultaneous swaps can be made in a single transaction on the Cardano network.

Max Mironov, product lead at Occam.fi, says:

“We are immensely proud to have reached this major milestone for OccamX — one of the first usable DEX platforms on the Cardano mainnet. While our current solution introduces some centralized elements, we are quickly iterating new, fully decentralized solutions to concurrency, and expect OccamX to be a powerful DEX with a seamless user experience. Liquidity and swaps for Cardano native tokens are here.”

OccamX will be supported by OCX, a DEX token that can only be attained through contributing to the Occam.fi ecosystem. Contribution methods include delegation to the pOCC stake pool on Cardano, staking of OccamRazer OCC tokens, liquidity provision for OCC on Uniswap and holding OCC as a Cardano native token.

You can delegate ADA to the pOCC stake pool in return for OCX through Daedalus, Yoroi, AdaLite or other wallets that support ADA staking. Find OCX’s pool information here. More details on reward ratios and distribution timelines will be provided shortly. Read more about how to get OCX here.
