I think you noticed that many things could not succeed. I didn't think about many things or naively thought that it gonna be fine. Of course I thought also about possible investments - and in fact I had few conversations with VCs but mostly because of no users & being alone they were not willing to talk more.

According to your question - in fact I could probably make kind of deal with other platforms (like crypto exchanges) for providing liquidity. Of course it's matter of platform security - imagine I do a deal with exchange where they borrow me their cryptos for trading. If I would be super safe maybe they could do it for some %. In theory it would work but practically I thought rather about initial investment for early liquidity. It was one of the costs in my business plan.

DEXes are also quite different. Uniswap is huge but except it it's still the topic for crypto freaks imao.
