FAQ about DEX Trading
DEX trading fees
You can check DEX trading commissions and fees on the Fees & Limits page. Because trading is decentralised, please do not forget about the network fee, which can occur when you initiate transactions.
The best DEXs for trading
There are a lot of centralised exchanges and trading applications on the crypto market. They currently dominate the crypto market. But another type of crypto application is increasing: decentralised applications. They call themselves different things, such as decentralised apps (dApps), decentralised exchanges (DEXs) and decentralised finance (DeFi). But what they share in common is that they all allow you to directly interact with their applications with your non-custodial wallet. We, along with many crypto enthusiasts, believe that the future is decentralised applications. StormGain offers you both ways of trading:
- You can open an account. This is the most familiar way for most people.
- You can use your non-custodial wallet to trade and see how the future is coming with us.
Is it safe to make DEX trades?
Yes, decentralised trading is safe. It's an even safer way to store your money because of the main concept of non-custodial wallets, which means only you own the private keys to your wallets.
Nobody can start interacting with your wallet until you allow it. The same applies to charging money and trading: the StormGain app will ask you to confirm the connection of your wallet to our trading platform. Please make sure our application's URL is correct. It should be https://app.stormgain.com/
How to get a MetaMask wallet
You need to install the extension to your browser to use this wallet. When you need to use this wallet, you can turn on this extension. The wallet extension connects to the StormGain web app.
What are custodial and non-custodial wallets?
There are 2 types of crypto wallets:
- Custodial wallets: you get crypto wallets by registering on a trading platform or exchange broker. In this case, you don't have private keys to manage the wallets. Instead, you have an account with the company in question.
- Non-custodial wallets: these are crypto wallets where you have/own the private keys to your wallet. You sign each transaction with these keys manually. You have full control over your funds. We respect your privacy. That's why we've developed integration with this type of wallet. The first non-custodial wallet that we allow to connect is MetaMask.
Do I need to deposit funds on StormGain to start trading?
No, you don't need to deposit any funds on StormGain. In DEX trading, you'll use your funds directly from your blockchain wallet.
