Established in 2021, RabbitX is the culmination of efforts by seasoned derivatives traders, and managers of billion-dollar portfolios. Initially introduced as Strips Finance, a decentralized interest rate swaps exchange on the Arbitrum platform, the group soon broadened their scope and underwent a transformation to become RabbitX. This transition marked a shift in focus from solely concentrating on decentralized interest rate derivatives to the development of a diverse range of derivatives covering all global asset classes.

Since its establishment, RabbitX has consistently adhered to a foundational strategy in product development, prioritizing a solid risk management system, a design centered around traders, and providing traders with advanced and groundbreaking tools.

RabbitX enjoys the support of some of the world’s most renowned and successful investors, including names like Sequoia Capital US, Peak XV Partners (formerly Sequoia India), Multicoin Capital,, OKX Ventures, among others.

RabbitX operates as a worldwide, unrestricted perpetuals and derivatives exchange, tailored for traders. It aims to establish the most secure and liquid international derivatives network, offering round-the-clock access to global markets from any location.

How to Trade on RabbitX

Since RabbitX use StarkNet, you need a network compatible wallet. 

If you want to use MetaMask, first connect and sign a transaction to verify ownership.

To use StarkNet with MetaMask, you have to use the Snap. 

Once installation is completed, a StarkNet address will be generated. 

You can now fund your StarkNet address. You can also select the markets you wish to trade. 

From my experience trying to use RabbitX, it is still a work in progress. The platform is not as user friendly or intuitive at the time of this review. It does however have potential to be a top DEX on StarkNet.

Key Features of RabbitX

This combination of an offchain orderbook’s rapidity and efficiency, paired with onchain settlements’ security, achieves latencies in the milliseconds, up to 50 times quicker than many other onchain derivatives platforms.

RabbitX is powered by Starknet, a highly scalable blockchain utilizing ZK-rollup technology. Operating as a layer-2 network on Ethereum, Starknet allows decentralized applications to scale computations limitlessly. Starknet ensures the cryptographic impossibility of fraudulent transactions (a limitation with Optimistic Rollups) and benefits from the comprehensive security of Ethereum’s layer 1.
