GMX is a decentralized spot and futures trading platform for cryptocurrency built on Arbitrum and further developed on Avalanche. The GMX V2 beta is now live, which builds on 2017's Gambit.
GMX was first launched on the Arbitrum One blockchain when the network went live in September 2021. Arbitrum is an Ethereum layer-2 Rollup, a solution designed to improve the speed and scalability of Ethereum smart contracts.
You can trade all kinds of top coins, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, on the GMX platform with up to 50x leverage on both the Arbitrum and Avalanche networks. That means you put in collateral, for example, and get 50x the value of coins. If the crypto you buy then goes up significantly you can make a lot of money quickly. For every 2% the coin goes up, you double your deposit.
If the coin you buy goes down 2% you lose your entire deposit. So you can earn much more than you lose if you do it right.
Of course, you also have to pay interest on your loan, otherwise no one will lend to you. The lenders get a percentage per period for this after the contract ends. These are the futures contracts.

Perpetuals or continuing contracts have no expiration date. A person who enters into one can let the contract run as long as he wants and can make a loss or profit on it throughout its term.
It may be the case that GMX will close the perpetual if the losses get too high and the risks become too high, but normally the buyer closes it.
The GLP pool serves wholesale and perpetuals. The community fills this pool and receives rewards for doing so
An AMM (automated market maker) serves the spot wholesale and handles the fees. A leverage trading algorithm processes the perpetuals.
GLP tokens cannot be traded outside of this trading platform and are only intended to provide services within this platform and profit from them with interest rates of around 30% of trading costs based on how many you have. By the way, with this token, you have more or less profit depending on the profitability of traders. The more they earn, the less is distributed to GLP token holders and vice versa.
GMX now has more than 300,000 users who have traded for more than $140 billion.
The current price for all cryptocurrencies are retrieved by Chainlink's technology. Their Oracles determine the prices of coins by consulting the most liquid exchanges and, based on that, always set a current price.
Once a price feed from the highest volume exchanges indicates that certain positions should be closed, this platform's protocol will forfeit the collateral and automatically trade.
The GMX token is the governance token of this platform and the most important coin. It is tradable everywhere, though. The current price has more than doubled since the inception of this platform and the market capitalization sits near $400 million.
If you invest in this coin and stake it on this platform you will get interest of around 10% per year, plus another 30% of the proceeds from the trading costs of the platform, depending on how many coins you have.
You also use this token to vote on the future of the platform.
There will be a maximum of around 13 million tokens, of which around 9 million are in circulation.
GM is tokenizing the new version of their platform, GMX V2 beta. It has similar numbers to that of GMX in terms of design.
GLP is the liquidity provider token for GMX V1 markets. It provides 70% of the fees for all trades on V1.
