How to swap


Platypus StableSwap seeks to reduce slippage for swaps without compromising flexibility and stability.

Before initiating the trade, there are a few things to note:

  • AVAX, the native token of the Avalanche blockchain, is required as gas fees for each transaction.

  • Transaction fee (a.k.a. haircut) is collected for liquidity providing.

  • The deposit or withdrawal fees will be vary depending on the pool’s Coverage Ratio.

  • Trading tokens not listed on Platypus by importing their contract addresses is currently not supported.

  • While the exchange rate for tokens in StableSwap is pegged, some of them may become unpegged due to unforeseeable reasons. Platypus tracks real-time data feeds via reliable price oracles like Chainlink and will halt the trade if a significant deviation is detected.

Exchanging the Tokens

With an ergonomically designed UX, swaps are seamlessly performed in five steps:

  1. In “Swap” page, choose the token pair you want to trade from the dropdown menu. Enter the input or output amount and click “Swap” to initiate the trade.
