GMX’s growth

GMX token gained wide popularity in early September when its value rose above the $50 mark during a period when the broader market was trading flat.

The DEX allows users to trade spot and perpetual futures at low fees through its trading interface. It is based on two networks, Ethereum layer2 protocol Arbitrum and Avalanche.

Defillama data showed that its TVL is currently $453.98 million, with $388.6 million Arbitrum, while $65.38 million is on Avalanche (AVAX). Meanwhile, around $370 million in assets are staked on the platform.

GMX incentivizes its token holders as they receive 30% of the protocol revenue for staking.

The decentralized protocol’s revenue has also steadily grown over the last 30 days. According to token terminal data, GMX revenue rose to $12.94 million in the previous 30 days.

The DEX has seen the token listed on several centralized exchanges and has recently scored several partnerships.
