LITE network supports decentralized exchange(DEX) using Bancor protocol. DEX is composed of many exchange pairs. You can find the api below in HTTP API.
What is an Exchange Pair¶
The term of 'Exchange Pair' describes a trade between one token with another, like A/B, A/TRX.
Exchange Pair Creation¶
Any account can create an exchange pair, it burns 1024 TRX.
Please refer to 'wallet/exchangecreate'.
Exchange Pair Transaction¶
Any account can trade in the DEX. The trade follows Bancor protocol.
Please refer to 'wallet/exchangetransaction'.
Exchange Pair Injection¶
The exchange pair creator can inject more tokens into the exchange pair. Injection can decrease the range of ratio fluctuation. If one token is injected, the other one will be injected automatically to keep the current ratio of the two tokens unchanged.
Please refer to 'wallet/exchangeinject'.
Exchange Pair Withdrawal¶
The exchange pair creator can withdraw tokens from the exchange pair. Withdrawal can increase the range of ratio fluctuation. If one token is withdrawn, the other one will be withdrawn automatically to keep the current ratio of the two tokens unchanged.
Please refer to 'wallet/exchangewithdraw'.
ListExchanges: Query the list of all the exchange pairs.
GetPaginatedExchangeList: Query the list of all the exchange pairs by pagination.
GetExchangeById: Query an exchange pair by exchange pair id.
The token price is determined by the ratio of the balance of the two tokens.
Calculate the Amount of Token You Can Get¶
sellTokenQuant is the amount of the
first_token you want to sell.
buyTokenQuant is the amount of
second_token you can get.
supply = 1_000_000_000_000_000_000L supplyQuant = -supply * (1.0 - Math.pow(1.0 + (double) sellTokenQuant/(firstTokenBalance + sellTokenQuant, 0.0005)) buyTokenQuant = (long)balance * (Math.pow(1.0 + (double) supplyQuant / supply, 2000.0) - 1.0)
