Tesseract: Real-Time Cryptocurrency Exchange Using Trusted Hardware
Yan Ji

Tesseract is a secure real-time cryptocurrency exchange service. Existing centralised exchange designs are vulnerable to theft of funds, while decentralised exchanges cannot offer real-time cross-chain trades. All currently deployed exchanges are also vulnerable to frontrunning attacks. Tesseract overcomes these flaws and achieves a best-of-both-worlds design by using a Intel SGX as a trusted execution environment. Additionally, by running a consensus protocol among SGX- enabled servers, Tesseract mitigates denial-of-service attacks.
