Experience Zero Slippage with Mettalex

Have you ever felt frustrated while trading an asset in the DeFI Platform? If yes, keep reading. In this blog series of Future of DeFi Trading, we will address a common pain point of many traders in the DeFi World - Slippage.

Have you tried swapping one asset to another in a DeFi Platform and received only less than what is displayed? Then, you have experienced slippage.

What Exactly is Slippage? 

Slippage occurs when there is a difference between the expected price of a trade and the executed price.

This usually happens during periods of high volatility or when large orders are placed. In our previous article, we explored how liquidity pools function. Essentially, these pools act as a collective basket containing two assets, facilitating asset swaps in a decentralized setting. When one asset in the pool experiences a surge in demand, and there isn't enough liquidity to maintain the price at which you intend to execute the trade.

Let's take Alice as an example. Imagine Alice wants to swap 1000 USDT for 1000 USDC, expecting a 1:1 trade. However, due to slippage, she ends up receiving less than 1000 USDC. This difference can be frustrating and costly, especially for frequent traders.
