I know what some of you are thinking: "RentMoney, LeoDex has been around for awhile now". To that I say "Correct" but regardless of that there are many that have not utilized LeoDex yet. For those of you who are new to the Hive Blockchain or for those of you who might not had the time to dig into finding out about LeoDex let me give a brief breakdown. LeoDex is a DEX (exchange) on the Hive network. It is very similar to Hive-Engine and has the same secondary Hive tokens listed on it (tribe tokens) and other tokens such as Swap.Hive. Now that you are armed with that information you might be asking yourself: "Self, why use LeoDex when I already use Hive-Engine?". Well the main answer to that is fees. Hive-Engine charges a one percent fee (reasonable) for deposits and withdraws. On the other hand LeoDex charges a 0.25 percent fee. Now hold up, before you make the switch you will have to keep in mind, Liquidity.
The Hive Networks main token is HIVE. Swap.Hive represents HIVE held on Hive Native DEXs such as Hive-Engine or LeoDex. When considering Hive/Hive.Swap liquidity Hive-Engine seems to never run out. On the other hand LeoDex sometimes might not have enough to cover transfer needs. Outlined below is how to check the Hive Liquidity of LeoDex.
- Go to https://leodex.io/
- Scroll to top of page
- Click Deposit/Withdraw Icon
- A new pop up will appear
- Click "Check Liquidity"
- A new window will open
- Displayed will be the LeoDex wallet
- Click the Icon that says HIVE
- LeoDex Hive balance will now be displayed
As displayed above in the screenshot, there is currently (01/11/2022) 1902 Hive in the LeoDex wallet. This means currently a user or multiple users will be able to trade up to 1902 Swap.Hive for Hive while using LeoDex. There would be no liquidity left to complete any trades exceeding the 1902 amount. If no liquidity is available one will have to wait until more becomes available before trading Swap.Hive for HIVE on LeoDex. Alternatively one would need to find another way to trade Swap.Hive for Hive (Hello Hive-Engine). LeoDex is brought to you by the LeoFinance team.
