⚔️ Trade directly on xDai

The native xDai interface gives you more control and improved reliability

Why trade via xDai?

All trades on Perpetual Protocol happen on xDai. Trades made via Ethereum are passed to xDai using a transaction relay. This allows you to trade without paying for gas, but it has a few drawbacks:

  • No control over gas price and limit

  • Not compatible with hardware wallets

  • Occasionally has service outages or unexpected issues
