About Vela Exchange

Vela Exchange is a decentralized exchange with advanced perpetuals trading capabilities, community focused incentives, and scalable infrastructure.

What advantages does Vela Exchange offer?

The Vela Exchange trading platform provides significant upside over centralized exchanges with fair, equitable access to platform rewards, self-custody of assets, and zero requirement for a centralized clearing house.
While legacy decentralized applications and exchanges continue to deal with high execution costs, low performance, and other trade inefficiencies, Vela Exchange was built as a 'next gen' platform to overcome familiar DEX issues including front-running, slippage, asset limitations, and lack of risk management features.

What trading functionality is currently available on Vela Exchange?

Vela Exchange currently supports perpetual futures trading, with spot, OTC, and other marketplaces coming soon.
A full list of features and supporting documents can be found here.
Dexpools, a platform launched by the Vela Exchange team, is a separate application featuring secure, escrow-less peer-to-peer swapping functionality as well as tools including chat and advanced alerts for OTC traders. This application may be merged into the Vela Exchange platform at a later date.
