Fordefi MPC Wallet Launches Native dYdX Support

Read Time 5 mins | Written by: Michael Poluy

We are excited to announce our native support for the dYdX Cosmos app-chain. dYdX is the leading perpetual exchange that recently deployed its V4 on a decentralized dYdX app-chain in the Cosmos ecosystem.

In continuation to previously announced Cosmos support, and as we strive to provide the best cross chain institutional DeFi wallet, we extend our offering in the ecosystem.

Fordefi’s platform natively supports the dYdX chain which allows our customers to securely hold their dYdX native tokens and all other tokens on the chain, transfer them to your counterparties and stake them with any of the staking providers available in the Keplr dashboard, while utilizing our secure platform with MPC, transaction policies, multiple approval flow, enclave protection, and more.

We will show in this blog how you can bridge your dYdX ERC-20 tokens on Ethereum to native dYdX tokens on its new chain, and then delegate them to a validator.

5 After you sign the Allowance transaction on the mobile app, the pop-up will move to the next state of actually migrating the tokens. Here you can see the simulation result of the migration transaction.
