Synthetix has announced plans to launch “Infinex” to “compete directly with CEXs”. The launch coincides with the release of the Perps V3.

In a blog post published on July 14, the founder of Synthetix [SNX]Kain Warwick, announced the protocol’s plans to launch “Infinex”, a perpetual contract (Perps) trading platform.

According to Warwick, the decision to launch Infinex came from the need to address the user experience challenges associated with trading Synthetix Perps and to compete directly with centralized exchanges (CEXs).
