High volume NEX handles enormous trade volume through its unique publicly verifiable off-chain matching engine.
Payment service The NEX payment service enables third-party smart contracts on NEO to send and receive global assets such as NEO and GAS as part of their computation.
Complex trades NEX handles complex order types that aren’t currently available on other decentralized exchanges such as market and limit orders.
NEX wallet extension The NEX wallet extension underpins the NEX ecosystem, allowing quick and seamless coordination between NEX, dApps and websites. Install NEX Extension
