If you were around in the early days of decentralized finance, then you might remember what it was like to use the very first wave of decentralized exchanges. Slow, clunky, unintuitive and downright frustrating. These are some of the first adjectives that come to mind when describing most of these platforms. But things have come a long way in recent years, and decentralized exchanges are beginning to rapidly encroach on both the utility and usability of centralized platforms — which still remain the dominant way for cryptocurrency users to trade today. The panel delves into the history of DEXes and what they are up to today.
