NEX is a platform for complex decentralized cryptographic trade and payment service creation

What is NEX?

And how is it better than current decentralized exchanges?

NEX leverages an off-chain matching engine to enable faster and more complex trades across multiple blockchains such as NEO and Ethereum

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
Cross-chain trading NEX allows for performant trades between tokens based on the NEO and Ethereum networks.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can we help you?
What timezone do you operate in?
NEX operates in UTC.
Are you open to investment groups or private sales?
There is no private sale for groups or individuals.
What exchanges will you be on once the token sale is complete?
We expect that several exchanges will want to list NEX. We will release that information on a later date.
Are US citizens allowed to participate in the token sale?
Unfortunately, our legal partners have determined that the United States is not allowed to participate.
Why should I install the NEX Chrome extension?
We require usage of the extension to ensure that you are the owner of the NEO address you are submitting. Additionally, NEX is not only a decentralized exchange, it is and ecosystem of products that link seamlessly with each other to give you, the user, a better and more complete experience in the cryptographic space for linking with decentralized apps/websites, storing, trading and purchasing tokens. The NEX extension is a critical part of the ecosystem as it underpins the entirety of our product suite, allowing seamless and quick integrations with the exchange, dapps, third-party sellers/purchasers and any other products we will create in the future. Install the NEX Extension
Why does the NEX extension have so many permissions, and will it really read my data?
The NEX extension will not read or change any of your data that could potentially cause harm to you or cause damage in any way. The reason why we ask for these permissions is that the extension will interact with websites/decentralized applications (which will also require the same permissions) to help make your life easier and safer, by understanding and knowing if that site is potentially malicious and providing visual feedback in this occurrence, or if it is a site that the extension has whitelisted and can interact with, such as a third-party purchase site. We realize this point has caused scepticism and concern amongst some of the wider audience, but rest assured this is a very commonplace action from many extensions, phone apps and websites that you currently use now. We would like to stress that any usernames, passwords or keys used or generated through the NEX extension are stored locally in your browser, and not in a central database - we have no records, and will never have any records of this information.
Are there jobs available?
We are glad to attract the interest of so many talented people. At the present moment our team is complete and we have no positions available, however as we grow in the future we will look for new talents.
Why don’t you have a mailing list or an official Telegram or Discord group?
At the moment we are concentrating our efforts on development, thus we are not opening channels (Telegram, Slack, Discord) besides the ones we already have. There is no mailing list.

Telegram and mailing lists are also very vulnerable to scams. We do not and have not sent any emails. If you have received an email please check your sources.
Does NEX comply with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
Where should I look for accurate information regarding all things NEX?
You can follow NEX at the following channels:
