Amidst regulatory sanctions, DDOS attacks, and the general market downturn that has impacted the activities of the leading play-to-earn gaming platform, STEPN launched its decentralized exchange (DEX) on 11 June. By a whitepaper published by the team, the DEX was referred to as DOOAR. The DEX allows the users of the gaming platform to provide liquidity in its native tokens – GST/USDC or GMT/USDC pairs.

According to data from Dune Analytics, STEPN’s DEX DOOAR recorded a daily active user index of 66052 users on 30 June, putting it atop the list of DEXes with the highest daily active users on the Solana Chain.
