Some handy facts

  • Anybody can enlist anything, nobody is able to restrict this as this is a pure DEX based on ownerless smart contracts.
    • Also means we cannot be responsible for what people do there.
  • There is no order book, there are no buy or sell orders. There are liquidity pools for pairs.
  • You pay 0.3% as swap fees which is the standard for DEXes.
  • Anybody can market make, thus provide liquidity for token-pairs for traders. It is done by others, not by Carbonswap.
  • You can swap any token to any token. The DEX tries to find you the most optimal way of doing so, routing through multiple token pairs. There needs to be a route with enough liquidity to support your trade.
  • The market price is determined by the ratio of the tokens in the pool.
    • E.g. You want to swap token A for token B. The market price is determined by the ratio of the reserves A/B. You will put token A in the reserves and take some token B out.
    • Each trade changes the market price
  • If your trade size is relatively big to the liquidity pool size, it might cause slippage, a larger impact on the market price. Large slippage also means your trade is less efficient. The larger the liquidity pool, the larger trades you can make.
    • If you are okay with larger slippage, change your tolerance in the settings.
  • If your transaction is pending for a long time, check if the gas settings were correct, or if the nonce of your transaction is correct. The contracts are solid, and there are 5 second block times.
