In today’s ever-evolving crypto landscape, staying competitive requires businesses to be agile and innovative. One way to achieve this is by streamlining product development processes, thus bringing products to market faster, reducing costs, and increasing overall efficiency.
This case study looks at how Palmswap achieved this with the Palmswap Hybrid Exchange, powered by ApolloX DEX Engine.
Meeting rising demand for Palmswap services
Palmswap is a decentralized trading platform built on the BNB Chain. It aims to provide an ecosystem of DeFi products with a main focus on its perpetual futures exchange.
To meet the needs of both retail and institutional-grade traders, Palmswap identified the need for two protocols: A 100% on-chain perpetuals decentralized exchange (DEX) utilizing a VAMM model, and a hybrid infrastructure model utilizing an order book.
Palmswap on-chain exchange
Palmswap had planned to fully develop both protocols and launch the Palmswap Hybrid Exchange after launching its on-chain DEX. However, the development of the on-chain DEX came with challenges.
Bernd Stöckl, Co-Founder of Palmswap, said, “We were working on problems that occurred on-chain, such as offering leverage trading, liquidations on time, flash crash security barriers, securities to prevent price manipulation.”
The team needed time to build the best on-chain trading product. Meanwhile, Palmswap was steadily catching the interest of its community. To avoid losing momentum with users while still meeting rising user demand for Palmswap trading, Palmswap partnered ApolloX DEX Engine to launch its hybrid infrastructure model at a significantly earlier date.
Launching the Palmswap Hybrid Exchange
“ApolloX DEX Engine enabled us to quickly offer a hybrid DEX solution to our customers,” said Bernd.

The ApolloX DEX Engine is a trading solution for any business looking to launch its own derivatives DEX. In less than a week, Palmswap onboarded DEX Engine and responded to market demands by launching the Palmswap Hybrid Exchange.
As a ready-to-go solution, DEX Engine helped Palmswap reduce their time to market by leveraging ApolloX DEX’s order book, matching engine, perpetual trading pairs and order types. Its customizable, user-friendly trading interface also helped Palmswap build on its brand.
“We and our users like the fact that there are many markets to trade,” shared Bernd when asked about the most-liked feature on the Palmswap Hybrid Exchange. There are currently over 65 perpetual contracts on the exchange.
Checking off milestones as a growth-focused business
As the ApolloX DEX Engine is free to onboard, DEX Engine was a cost-effective solution for Palmswap, who could continue dedicating its resources to the on-chain DEX. That’s not all. Palmswap also shares trading fees collected on the Palmswap Hybrid Exchange with ApolloX. This opened a new revenue stream for the project.
The majority of fees collected are used to buy back and burn PALM, Palmswap’s native token, to permanently remove them from the total supply. This helps to stabilize and support the token for a longer period of time while helping to effectively engage PALM holders, benefiting Palmswap.
Since the launch of the Palmswap Hybrid Exchange, Palmswap has achieved several milestones for its on-chain DEX:
- 3 working testnets running in perpetuity
- Developed robust developer tools to maintain and test the exchange
- In the final testing phase before Alpha Mainnet launch
All in all, the ApolloX DEX Engine is a powerful tool that helped Palmswap streamline its product development process. The Palmswap Hybrid Exchange helped to expand Palmswap’s offerings, increase their revenue, and strengthen their brand.
Bernd concluded: “We had the time to look for solutions for our on-chain DEX because we didn't have to worry about the hybrid exchange through ApolloX DEX Engine.”
