Elixir's Trustless & Permissionless Liquidity Vision for Order Book Exchanges | Philip, Founder

In today's interview, Philip, the founder of Elixir, discusses how his project aims to democratize access to liquidity provisioning on order book exchanges. He explains Elixir's unique architecture as a modular DPOS blockchain that uses a market making algorithm to allow anyone to supply liquidity to order books in a trustless fashion. Philip dives into the technical details of how Elixir pulls order book data from exchanges, comes to consensus, and posts orders back to the exchanges. The conversation also touches on the Apothecary liquidity provisioning program and Philip's conviction that on-chain order books will prevail over AMMs long-term for serious traders.
