Interview with the Switcheo Team: A Decentralized Exchange for Neo

In this episode of Ledger Cast, Derek and Brian talk to the team from the Switcheo Network. They are building a decentralized exchange for Neo, and eventually other platforms as well.

In this episode of Ledger Cast, Derek and I interview Ivan Poon, Henry Chua, and Jack Yeu from Switcheo. Switcheo recently concluded an ICO to raise funds for their Decentralized Exchange project, which has just launched.

Switcheo is an underdog team in the race to be the top Neo DEX, and they beat the competition to launch. If you picture is like the Ethereum landscape, you can imagine the advantage. As new tokens launch on the network, DEXes are often the only place for early liquidity.

Switcheo doesn’t intend to stop with Neo. They are building the DEX in a way so that they can build for Neo, Qtum, and other networks, and the end goal is to be a multi-chain decentralized exchange. But they are starting with Neo and the NEP-5 token mechanism.

This interview was recorded a few weeks ago, and a couple weeks before they distributed tokens from their ICO. Please forgive us if the audio quality is a challenge; we tried to process it as well as we could, and cut any gaps due to the distance between us on the call. I think it’s manageable.
