In addition to this change, the dYdX Foundation has revealed the new role of its native governance token, DYDX. As a Cosmos-based proof-of-stake blockchain designed for fast trading and low fees, DYDX can now be used for staking purposes. This means that token holders have the opportunity to become validators of the DYDX chain by staking their tokens and securing the network. Alternatively, holders can delegate their tokens to other validators. As an added incentive, all fees generated from trading on the platform will be distributed to validators and stakers, potentially resulting in significant payouts based on the platform's financials.
