Unique trading features

Infinite liquidity

All trading is peer-to-contract, using the Synthetix protocol’s pooled liquidity model. This means no counterparty matching, and essentially infinite liquidity for traders.

Zero slippage

Infinite liquidity means that traders never have to worry about moving the orderbook and being affected by slippage.

Synthetic futures

Coming Soon

Once futures is built on the Synthetix protocol, it will soon be supported on Kwenta, offering perpetual future contracts on a non-custodial, permissionless platform.

Without the limits of a centralised exchange

Peer-to-contract (P2C) trading

All trades are executed against the Synthetix smart contracts, so traders don’t have to worry about the limitations of the peer-to-peer trading model, such as liquidity, slippage, or orderbooks.

No trading pair restrictions

Any Synth can be traded instantly into any other Synth so you’re not restricted to whichever trading pairs the exchange offers, which is a necessary restriction of the centralised exchange model.

Permissionless and non-custodial

Kwenta is a dApp that leverages the Synthetix protocol, which means no creating an account, no deposits or withdrawals, and no surrendering custody of your funds.

Start trading in just 3 steps

Step One

You’ll need a web3 wallet with ETH for gas

Kwenta is on the Etherem blockchain, so like all other dApps on Ethereum you’ll need a web3 wallet with ETH in it as gas to pay for transactions to be processed. Popular cryptocurrency wallet categories include hardware wallets, browser extension wallets, and mobile wallets.

Step Two

Acquire sUSD (or any other Synth)

To start trading, you’ll need a synthetic asset derivative supported by Kwenta, known as Synths. The most accessible Synth is sUSD, which can be purchased on dApps such as Uniswap, Curve, or 1inch.

Step Three

Use Kwenta to trade the full range of Synths

Once you’ve got sUSD or any other Synth, you can trade between the entire range of Synths to craft a diverse portfolio of assets, all on-chain and without surrendering custody to an exchange!
