The MetaDEX: Aerodrome & Velodrome Explained | Ace & Alexander

In this episode, Aerodrome and Velodrome contributors, Ace and Alex, join us to discuss how Aerodrome and Velodrome are redefining the DEX model. They explain how the "MetaDEX" works, the flywheel it creates for users, and how they have helped shape the L2 landscape. Additionally, we talk about their Superchain vision, and why they chose to focus their efforts on the Optimism and Base L2s.
