Fees

Note: DexToro charges no additional fees (advanced orders included) outside of the required fees charged by our liquidity provider & Gelato's keeper system.

DexToro is built upon the Synthetix Protocol. In order to enable trading on DexToro, trading fees are charged by Synthetix, whose fees are sent to the fee pool for Synthetix (SNX) stakers. DexToro than receives a portion of the total fees generated as an integrator.

Maker & Taker Fees

Maker & Taker fees may vary depending on a selected market. The most current fees are prominently displayed within the DexToro trading platform.

When it comes to derivatives trading, makers are traders who place orders that contribute to the overall liquidity of the market. Meanwhile, takers are individuals who accept those orders, which reduces the liquidity available, typically through an order book system. Makers play a crucial role in maintaining a well-functioning market by ensuring there are enough orders on the books. Takers, on the other hand, help to execute those orders and keep the market active.

DexToro utilizes an automated market maker (AMM) and a peer-to-contract (P2C) trading model that leverages a liquidity pool to fill all orders at a skew-adjusted oracle price. Within the DexToro system, orders placed against the current market skew are considered “maker” orders, resulting in lower maker fees for traders. Conversely, orders placed with the skew are “taker” orders, which incur higher taker fees. If a trade results in a change from positive to negative overall market skew, the trader may experience partial order fills at each fee tier.
