FAQs about DODO Exchange

How do I switch from Ethereum to Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and vice versa on DODO Exchange?

Currently, DODO Exchange supports 4 chains, including Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Heco, and Polygon. To switch between chains, you will have to configure your wallet accordingly.

Step 1: Click on the Coin98 Wallet browser extension icon.

Step 2: Click on the Web3 Priority on top of the home screen.

Step 3: Choose the chain you want to trade.

Why does ETH balance show up as 0 on DODO Exchange?

Your ETH balance will show up as 0 in 2 cases.

The first case is you do not choose the respective chain with your ETH balance in the wallet. To switch chains, read the answer to the question: “How do I switch from Ethereum to Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and vice versa on DODO Exchange?”.

The second one is you do not have enough ETH in your wallet. In this case, the DODO trading portal will look like this picture.

Besides, DODO has evolved a 0.2 ETH buffer/minimum feature on its frontend interface, which means if there is less than 0.2 ETH in your wallet, you cannot initiate swaps/trades on DODO. Its purpose is to protect users from accidentally using up all their ETH to pay for the gas fees.

How about DODO’s impermanent loss? Are my assets at risk?

The DODO development team confirms that there is a reduced impermanent loss risk on DODO Exchange compared to other decentralized exchanges. DODO’s backtests on BTC price data indicate that DODO’s liquidity providers are able to make 80% in net gains. Although their token balances go down in the short term, such losses are less than other AMM platforms, Uniswap for example.

The biggest difference between market risk and AMM “impermanent loss” is the fixed losses amount of money. In which, market risk is not a risk at all as LPs could gain profits if the asset prices go up. In contrast, AMM “impermanent loss” is a fixed loss when LPs add liquidity to the trading pools.

Why is my trade failing or stuck pending confirmation?

There are generally 2 main reasons why this is happening:

  • Price Movement & Slippage Setting: During peak load time and high demand for certain tokens, the price may change rapidly and be out of your offered price by the time your transaction is confirmed on the blockchain. To ensure your transaction goes through during these times you will need to increase your slippage tolerance.
  • Network gas price is too low during peak load times on ETH network: To get transactions done in a timely manner, users need to increase their gas fee. Miners will always take the highest fee transactions first, so if your gas setting is too low your transaction may take a while to process.

To increase your gas, you can do this by manually editing the gwei amount and gas limit before submitting the transaction.
