The most efficient liquid staking derivative exchange in DeFi


ShadeSwap is a decentralized exchange built on the Secret Network blockchain. Unlike centralized exchanges, which are operated by a single entity, decentralized exchanges operate through a distributed network, allowing users to trade cryptocurrencies without the need for a middleman.

ShadeSwap uses private smart contracts, which is a novel advancement in blockchain technology & Web 3.0. These smart contracts offer users greater control, security, and privacy over their funds, as it allows them to trade directly from their own wallets.

Trading Tool Tips

  • Minimum Received: Refers to the minimum predicted output from the swap. This takes into account the potential slippage your swap may encounter.

  • Slippage: Is defined by how much the market price shifts from the time the user inputs their trade to the time the smart contract executes the transaction on the blockchain.

  • Slippage Tolerance: Refers to the maximum amount of slippage you will tolerate in a given swap transaction. If the swap has an actual slippage greater than the slippage tolerance, the transaction will fail.

  • Price Impact: Is the cost the trader is intentionally charged for changing the ratio of the pool directly caused from their trade. This is most noticeable when there is a large trade size compared to the size of the liquidity pool.

  • Trade Fee: Refers to the fee the user incurs that is paid to liquidity providers in the respective liquidity pool.

  • Route: Is the sequence of assets the inputted token will convert to in order to get to the desired outputted token. ShadeSwap always optimizes the route for the more efficient swaps.
