The Waves DEX, a decentralized exchange within the Waves Lite Client, allows you to buy, sell or exchange every asset existing within the Waves Platform.

Remember that exchanging a token on the DEX costs you 0.003 WAVES in transaction fees, at the moment. If you need first 0.003 Wave, just send us your waves address. Please open this link and raise a private ticket with your Waves address.

By the way, there is a limit for the order amount. The amount can not be less than 1 Waves or less than 1 for any asset.

How to trade on the DEX

After you have logged into your account, go to the WAVES Decentralized Exchange Tab and you'll see the following window.

By default, the Exchange opens on the WAVES/BTC pairs.

Buy order: Shows you the existing buy order.
Sell order: Shows you the existing sell order.
Trade History: Shows you the lasts matching trades.
Buy Waves: Allows you to make a buy order.
Sell Waves: Allows you to make a sell order.
My Orders: Shows your lasts matching trades.

How to Change the tradable Pairs

To change the pairs, choose the one you want from the favorite panel on the right or replace the assets name in the text form above by the name of the pair you want. A scrolling menu will show up with the name of all the assets tradable on the DEX.

As you can see some have a green mark on the left, it's to acknowledge you that they have been verified and approved by the community.It gives them more legitimacy. That doesn't mean that the others aren't tradable or are scam or fun-coin, just that the community don't back it for the moment. At this time, the process of verification is done by the Waves team. In the future, it should be done by the WCT holders.

When the assets don't have a green mark, double check to be SURE that's the ones you want to trade.
