โš”๏ธ Trade directly on xDai
The native xDai interface gives you more control and improved reliability

Why trade via xDai?

Trading via Ethereum is no longer supported.
  • All trades must be made via xDai.
  • Any positions you opened via Ethereum can now be managed from xDai.
  • No additional action is needed from you.
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
