Deri Protocol's innovative architecture consists of two main components: a requesting interface and an executive engine, implemented as two groups of smart contracts.
The requesting interface,also known as the “i-chain” (with “i” signifying interface), serves as the pivotal entry point for user interactions. It adeptly handles a wide range of user requests, from traders initiating orders and managing margins to liquidity providers engaging in adding or removing liquidity.
These requests are seamlessly relayed to the executive engine. Deployed on a dedicated blockchain, this is our “d-chain”, where “d” represents “Deri”. Here, all the requests are processed.
There is only one d-Chain, which is an AppChain deployed by the Deri Protocol team using layer 3 technology. Whereas, i-Chain are all the major public layer 1s and layer 2s such as Ethereum, Arbitrum, BNBChain, zkEVM,and zkSync Era. While theoretically any layer 1 or layer 2 can be adopted as an i-Chain, in practice, the community will choose which ones to deploy.
The chart below illustrates the architecture of the DPMM of Deri Protocol.
How DPMM works
The "How DPMM works" section is intended to give users a rough overview of the various mechanisms implemented on Deri Protocol, resulting in giving a transparent and clearer picture on how exactly Deri Protocol's engine and backend is beating.
