Trading - Token Swaps

Just like any other AMM platform, Elektrik token swapping works on the available liquidity in the pool. For example: DAI and MATIC.

  1. Price Impact: The change in asset price caused by a trade's size relative to the liquidity available in the AMM, impacting the slippage experienced by traders.

  2. Network Fees: The charges incurred for transactions on the blockchain, which vary depending on network congestion and transaction complexity.

  3. Minimum Output: The minimum amount of the desired output asset a trader will receive, protecting against excessive slippage and unfavorable trades.

  4. Expected Output: The anticipated amount of output asset a trader should receive based on the initial trade input, factoring in price impact and liquidity conditions.
