Autonio will take a major step toward becoming a truly multi-chain investment solution with the roll-out of our full suite of intelligent trading tools on the Cardano blockchain. 

In the third quarter, we will begin the phased migration of our entire suite of tools to the Cardano platform. That means all of them: Maker, the Smartdex, the AI network that powers the toolset, as well as our native NIOX token. 

One of the centrepieces of this transition will be the deployment of the new version of Autonio Smartdex, planned for Q4. 

Along with a sleek new design, Smartdex 2.0 will boast functionality unavailable on other decentralized exchanges. And as a result of alliances we’ve forged in recent months, it will also be a true multi-chain liquidity aggregation platform–one that will enable users to access, trade on, and stake assets across a range of crypto chains and protocols, including Ethereum, Polygon and Cardano. 

Thanks to the power of AI, Smartdex will have the power and flexibility to adjust user portfolios and risk levels to suit prevailing market conditions. This is made possible by AI agents trained through a solid back-end infrastructure and fed with thousands of data points gathered from order book-based exchanges, on-chain transactions, and social media sentiment.

One of Smartdex 2.0’s most game-changing additions is the all-new Smartpool, an intelligent risk-adjusted way to invest. Smartpools are automated investment pools powered by an active liquidity management solution that incorporates algorithmic/deterministic inventory management strategies and AI agents to generate sustainable yields.

Smart contract-controlled Smartpools offer the benefits of finalized pools, while still allowing complex logic to readjust balances, weights and fees. Such contracts allow for more sophisticated breeds of investment pool, including liquidity bootstrapping pools (to raise funds), multi-asset pools (index funds), single-asset vaults, and smart treasury management.

Smartdex won’t be alone. Once integration is complete, investors will have full access to the full Autonio toolset through the Cardano wallet and blockchain, including the all-new NIOX Suite dashboard, our feature-rich update of Maker and Swarm, Autonio’s intelligent liquidity mining protocol. 

What will happen next?

Preparations for the Cardano migration are already underway. We expect the first major milestones–the deployment of Autonio’s native NIOX token on Cardano and the creation of an Ethereum <> Cardano Bridge to the Smartdex–in the third quarter of this year. These steps will allow investors to use their NIOX tokens to join the staking campaigns we plan to run on Cardano before the year is out.

What lies ahead for the transition: 

AROUND THE CORNER:
  • Smartdex V2 launch on Polygon & Ethereum, followed by deployment and testing of Plutus contracts.
  • NIOX staking campaign on Cardano!
  • Collaboration with Cardano ecosystem partners on various campaigns/initiatives.
IN THE MEDIUM TERM:
  • Integrate Cardano wallet to enable users to interact with Smartdex contracts.
  • Liquidity aggregation for top Cardano DEXs
  • Smartpools on Cardano

This is only the start for this exciting transformation. We’ll provide ongoing updates on what to expect next and when to expect it.

Meanwhile, have fun trading with Autonio (soon on Cardano too!) 

About Cardano

Cardano offers a secure, transparent and scalable platform required to power the financial and social operating system of the future, changing how we work, interact, and create, as individuals, businesses, and societies.

It is the first blockchain platform to evolve out of a scientific philosophy and a research-first driven approach.
Cardano is an open platform that seeks to provide economic identity to the billions who lack it by providing decentralized applications to manage identity, value and governance
