About Us

In the winter of 2016, we set out on a mission to transform the trading industry. Our goal is to become a leading beacon in the new Internet of Money world, using blockchain technology to create a fair distribution of risk. After months of research, meetings, development and legal work, we are proud to introduce the LucidExchange trading platform.

Lucid’s mission is to offer a blockchain-based, open source protocol that will power-up frictionless trading platforms in the US and around the globe. A true peer-to-peer trading protocol, embedded with a full suite of risk-assessment mechanisms  – a trader-focused alternative to today’s highly centralized capital market systems.

The Lucid protocol creates unique distributed ledgers for each asset traded in the Lucid ecosystem. It converts the terms of each trade into self-executing smart contracts which automatically maintain risk and margin requirements.

Lucid traders will enjoy full transparency, full wallet control, immutable ledger protection, asset-backed tokens, instantaneous settlements, and the ability to swap assets within the Lucid ecosystem frictionlessly and at minimal transaction costs.

TradeX (TRD), Lucid’s native token powers the trading platform ecosystem and provide individuals with the ability to trade in a wide range of asset-backed tokens.


Problems with Traditional Exchangers

LucidExchange Benefits

Cost Savings

Say goodbye to high trading fees – LucidExchange charges minimal transaction fees.

Tight Bid/Ask Spreads

Our proprietary software creates tight bid/ask spreads through our P2P matching algorithms. Lock in your price and don’t subject your trade to slippage.


Understand what’s going on behind the scenes. Our blockchain ledger is immutable and is entirely transparent to investors and regulators.

No Size Requirements

Purchase an option on a fraction of a share! In our marketplace, you are not constrained to purchase a whole number of shares in lots of 50s or 100s.


LucidExchange will be the first blockchain derivatives exchange to operate legally in the United States. This ensures our traders that the marketplace is compliant with all regulations and that their money is in safe hands.


The LucidExchange platform is built using elite security principles that match or exceed that of most financial institutions. Traders always keep full-control of their wallets and the assets they purchased.
