What is Poloni DEX?
Poloni DEX is the name change of the Tron TRXMarket DEX after it was acquired by Poloniex on November 27, 2019.
“TRXMarket has been officially updated to #PoloniDEX , a significant move for the #TRON ecosystem. We believe that after joining @Poloniex , TRXMarket will have access to more premium resources and be in a position to better serve community members.” ,they announced on Poloniex’s twitter.

But if you are a user with little experience in the sector, don’t worry, we will teach you step by step how to use it.
Transfer of funds
As in any DEX or centralized exchange, the first thing we have to do to trade is to make a deposit of one of the accepted cryptocurrencies.
To do this click on [Balances] located on the top right of the menu, this window will show all the cryptocurrencies accepted by the platform and on the right side 3 buttons:
- Receive: From this link we will obtain the deposit address to deposit funds in our account.
- Send: From here we will send funds to an account outside the DEX.
- Trade: It will take us to the trading platform to trade with the chosen token.
Understanding what we see when we enter an exchange is essential for proper trading.
