Understanding Liquidity Provision

What is Liquidity Provision?

Liquidity provision is the act of contributing assets to a liquidity pool, essential for the functioning of an AMM. By adding your tokens to these pools, you enable others to trade these tokens, thereby contributing to the overall health and efficiency of the exchange.

Benefits for Liquidity Providers on eckoDEX

As a liquidity provider on eckoDEX, you play a crucial role in maintaining the ecosystem's vibrancy. In return, you are rewarded with a portion of the transaction fees generated from trades in the pool you contribute to. On eckoDEX, this fee is 0.25% of each swap, distributed proportionally among liquidity providers based on their share in the pool.

Providing Double-Sided Liquidity
