About Merkle Trade

Merkle Trade is a decentralized trading platform that offers crypto, forex and commodities trading with leverage up to 1,000x, along with access to advanced and user-centric trading features.
Our aim is to offer a highly engaging and enjoyable trading experience for everyone. Unlike most of the perp DEXs out there, we set out to build trading experience for everyone, not just for highly skilled traders or whales.
Ultimately, our end goal is to building Merkle Trade into the biggest decentralized hub for leveraged trading.
Merkle Trade is powered by Aptos blockchain for its best-in-class performance and scalability.

Why Merkle Trade

📈 Best-in-class Decentralized Leveraged Trading

  • Trade crypto, forex, commodities with leverage up to 1,000x Merkle Trade aims to provide a wide range of pairs - crypto, forex and commodities right from the start, with some of the highest leverages on the market; up to 150x on crypto and up to 1000x on forex. In the future more pairs and assets are to be added for trading.
  • Fair price order execution with sub-second delay, minimal slippage Building on Aptos, the lowest-latency production blockchain to date, allows us to provide the fastest on-chain trading experience. For traders, this means more responsive trading experience and less price slippage due to execution delays.
  • Decentralized, non-custodial trading without counter-party risk Traders trade against the liquidity pool (“Merkle LP”) which acts as a counterparty to every trade on the protocol. All trades and settlements are performed by the smart contract, there's no custody of user funds at any point in time.
  • Minimal fees Merkle Trade can boast some of the lowest fees on the market to date. At launch, the trading fees are as low as 0.05% for crypto pairs, and as low as 0.0075% for forex pairs (learn more).

How It Works

  • Passive MM: Unlike most exchanges, there is no order book on Merkle Trade. Instead, the Merkle LP acts as the counter-party to every trade, as it receives the collateral when traders take loss and pays out the profit on the closed trades with positive PnL.
  • Synthetic Trading: Trades are always denominated and settled using a stablecoin regardless of the asset being traded, allowing any asset with a reliable price feed to be listed and traded on the protocol.
