Why not deploy GMX on ETH mainnet?

Just curious about this. Have there been any disscutions about mainnet deployment?

high fees that are not acceptable for trading. Imagine in the bull you would pay 200$ to open a position

You cannot trade perpetual futures with high gas fees and long time-to-finality. An on-chain exchange needs high throughput and fast execution.

Deploying the GMX contracts to ETH mainnet would be a very expensive to trade on and provide liquidity. In comparision the more interesting idea might be to see if there are ways to make it easier for ETH mainnet and other users on other chains to utilize our deployments on Arbitrum & Avalanche.
