Trading

Overview

Vela Exchange uses isolated margin to limit collateral liability, meaning that only the user's position collateral is risked in a given trade. This is the industry standard for trading accounts and is the most widely used method in DeFi, and we believe it to be the most responsible means of serving our customers. Limiting account risk is imperative to the DeFi trading experience for users of all experience backgrounds. Given the volatile nature of cryptocurrencies, isolated margin mitigates overall account balance risk while maintaining the necessity for a non-custodial trading experience. Traders also have access to Vela's deep liquidity to empower their trades with up to 100x leverage. Users can refer to individual position health in real time as an added layer of protection and information.
