I am currently evaluating various DEX solutions (ERC-20 DEXs, 0x, Hydro, Waves DEX, EOS-based DEXs). Can anyone provide me with some insights on the potential benefits of using Stellar-based DEXs relative to competing solutions?
As I understand it, Stellar's DEX functionality is built into the blockchain and various front-ends (e.g. Stronghold.co, FairX, BlockEQ) act as gateways to the core stellar decentralized exchange network. This is similar to the model used by the BitShares network.
What are the benefits of using the stellar decentralized exchange compared to say the Bitshares-based DEXs (e.g. OpenLedger.io)? Or say federated ERC-20 liquidity protocols (e.g. 0x and/or Hydro)?
I am interested in both the benefits of the core backend and various front-ends such as BlockEQ / FairX / Stronghold.
