Although 2020 was not a great year overall, there is one thing we all were happy about — The rise of the crypto bull market. Bitcoin crossed its 2017 ATH in November 2020 and has remained over $20,000. Crypto’s total market cap has now crossed one trillion for the first time ever. Also, most of the crypto market experts believe that this rally will continue for the rest of 2021.

These market conditions have amplified the scope of crypto exchanges as the number of people who want to get involved in the cryptocurrency market is increasing exponentially. …

Margin trading is commonly offered in one of two different flavors: isolated or cross margin. Marginswap launched with a cross margin system, which means that the health of a margin trader’s portfolio is calculated jointly, such that gains in one asset can balance out potential losses in another. This approach can save users time, sometimes gas, and headache around rebalancing their portfolio.

What Isolated margin means for Marginswap

Marginswap is a decentralized exchange much like Uniswap, so we believe that users should be able to choose between a more tightly integrated system for lower-risk assets and an open playing field for trading and lending a wider…

Hi, this is Gabe, your Marginswap tech lead! Checking in about the roll-out of our beta:
You may have noticed we are currently behind relative to our announced timeline. I’m sorry that we were off in our estimation, and we’re all working hard to make it right.

In the lead-up to our launch, I focused heavily on the smart contract side of things — building a full feature set and putting it through our two audits, with some (upcoming) extras thrown in the mix (isolated margin, overcollateralized loans…). …

The Marginswap token distribution is designed from the get-go to drive adoption of the marginswap protocol. That is why the remaining MFI tokens will be distributed to users and early adopters of Marginswap.

Distribution of protocol incentive tokens: 2,500,0000

Tokens will be distributed starting at 4000 MFI daily, with a 0.1% daily contraction. These tokens will be distributed for 981 days, starting from 04.03.2021( 4 March 2021) with the last distribution happening on 9.11.2023.

Over the past few years, many projects have come forth to offer decentralized margin trading exchanges. Yet all of these projects have faced the same issues: Liquidity, security, dangerously high slippage, and lack of token options, which are all extremely important factors to any trader who fears liquidations due to market volatility, security exploits, and slippage.

What if you could harness all the best parts of the biggest decentralized exchanges AND leverage trade on them? That is why we are building Marginswap. A decentralized margin and spot trading platform built on the back of DeFi Giants like Uniswap and Sushiswap.
