BetDEX, a sports betting exchange built on a blockchain, will open on Solana mainnet on Nov. 17.

The sports betting exchange will go live at the beginning of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, said Varun Sudhakar, the firm's CEO. Users will be able to place bets on football matches, with no fees for bets placed on World Cup matches.
