Frequently Asked Questions


  • If you enter a limit order it can be a maker or a taker. A maker orders pay the fee once as it enters the order book and waits until a taker order hits it. Taker orders (orders that match with other orders on the order book) pay the gas fees by scaling with how many orders they fill.

    This is the main reason Dexalot has a min trade amount for anyone wondering….to ensure the taker order gas fees are reasonably under control and to give a good trading experience for all.

    Network fees are paid by AVAX, so you need enough AVAX in your metamask wallet to execute orders.

  • The orders are fully on-chain so you'll be charged network fee for every transaction, but bear in mind that avalanche has dynamic fees that change. In short, it may be lower or higher due to usage of network at that time and also avalanche has one of the lowest fees on the market right now.

    Every deposit has a network fee (estimated gas fee) and exchange fee. The network fee is deducted from your metamask wallet and the exchange fee is deducted from the amount you deposit. both amounts show on the deposit screen before you click the deposit button. (Same logic applies to withdrawals as well.) Currently there are no exchange fees. There are zero commissions through the end of January 2022.

  • The variable nature of the gas fees comes about for a variety of reasons and factors. Please read our Litepaper to learn more details.

    For instance, the gas fees depend on the number of operations your order will have to execute. It is possible that your order will be matched by multiple small orders at 117.6 compared to possibly being matched to a single order at 118. Hence 117.6 has higher gas. Alternatively, if you are entering an order that won’t be matched, the gas is lower if the price you picked already exists in the order book. New price points require additional storage in the blockchain, and that costs extra gas.
