Glide Finance AMM (Automated Market Maker)

Token swaps on Glide (based on Uniswap V2) are a simple way to trade one token for another via automated liquidity pools. Deviations between the trading price of assets on Glide and external sources such as centralized exchanges create arbitrage opportunities for traders and allow the price of assets to track market-wide averages.

Trading Fee

When you swap (trade) on the exchange, you will pay a 0.25% trading fee, of which 0.05% is returned to liquidity pools as a reward for liquidity providers and 0.2% is converted into ELA and shared with GLIDE holders through the Dividend Pool. None of this fee will go to a treasury or developer fund.
