The Komodo developer team has completed a thorough analysis of data from the 2020 AtomicDEX Stress Test. We have proven our DEX technology is scalable, and ready for widespread adoption. As a result, we are officially launching the Komodo DeFi Engine!

Komodo DeFi Engine + AtomicDEX

Komodo DeFi Engine is the underlying technology that powers secure, peer-to-peer atomic swaps. It is a complete suite of open-source blockchain development tools, which includes an atomic swap engine (backend/core), DEX feature set, and APIs. Komodo DeFi Engine provides developers with access to the blockchain industry’s widest cross-chain and cross-protocol support.

AtomicDEX is the first GUI application built on top of Komodo DeFi Engine. It is a secure cryptocurrency wallet with an integrated atomic swap DEX rolled into one application. Store your digital assets and make cross-chain swaps without a middleman and with minimal fees.

AtomicDEX Stress Test Key Takeaways

  1. The entire DEX core infrastructure operated on a Virtual Private Server (VPS) infrastructure in a virtual environment with limited resource availability. The network consisted of just 3 main seed nodes with 10 backup seeds and 7 market maker nodes for the Rick/Morty stress test order books.
  2. Measuring only 2 independent blockchains passing through the Komodo DeFi Engine - the atomic swap protocol underpinning AtomicDEX - we reach 10,000 swaps/minute on our internal monitors.
  3. The CPU resource consumption throughout the entire event was less than 5% on average.
  4. Further validated that the Komodo DeFi Engine is ready to be used by projects to create their own atomic swap powered decentralized exchanges.
  5. Validated AtomicDEX is capable of being integrated into IoT devices.
