Mantle Showcase: Mantle Increases DeFi Capabilities With Vertex Collaboration

Mantle is delighted to announce a strategic alliance with Vertex, a cross-margined decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol. This collaboration will integrate Vertex's offerings — including spot trading, perpetual contracts, and an integrated money market — into one seamless application within Mantle Network's DeFi ecosystem.

To support Vertex and ensure its best possible start within the Mantle Ecosystem, the Mantle Treasury will deploy funding into the Vertex ecosystem, supporting its mission to create the deepest on-chain liquidity option for users.

  • Enhanced Trading Experience: Vertex's integrated trading ecosystem offers Mantle users significant capital efficiencies, competitive speed, and user experience, all while maintaining the principles of self-custody and on-chain settlement.
  • High-Speed, Advanced Performance Orderbook: Vertex achieves low latency times of 5–15 milliseconds, comparable to leading CEXs. By utilizing Mantle's advanced scaling capabilities, Vertex ensures a swift, stable, and scalable trading experience for users.
  • Cross-Chain Liquidity Through Vertex Edge: Vertex Edge, a synchronous orderbook liquidity layer between chains, will be instrumental in addressing liquidity fragmentation across different blockchains. Consolidating the orderbook liquidity from all supported blockchains via the Vertex sequencer provides Mantle users with immediate access to extensive liquidity in lucrative perpetual markets.

What's Next for Vertex: Upcoming Opportunities to Watch

The optimistic outlook on the collaboration is also echoed by Vertex, as Co-Founder Darius Tabatabai adds: "Mantle is one of the most impressive ecosystems we have encountered, boasting a rapidly growing and engaged community alongside an ambitious growth plan.
