The Republic Protocol is a second-layer blockchain protocol, that is, a protocol that can be added to a currently existing blockchain that allows for additional functionalities.
When implemented in a decentralized exchange, it turns it into a "dark pool" exchange, with a hidden order book that matches orders without showing their price or volume until execution. It also provides cross-chain asset trading through atomic swaps.
Orders are settled and matched by masternodes called Darknodes. 100Show more [+]
