We set up a 10% price slippage rate from the current best bid or best ask price, as a market order protection mechanism.

Based on the 10% price slippage, we have calculated a worst case scenario for your order: minimum total (Know more on Market Order and minimum total)

3. Complete your order (Wrap ETH if needed)

Once you click the buy button, DDEX will prompt you to confirm and sign the order before sending it to the order book.

-If you have enough WETH to complete the transaction, you just need to sign the transaction (through your digital wallet interface) to post it to the order book.

After you wrap the ETH to WETH, the buy process will resume.

Once you sign your order, you will see it appear in the order book. You can view and manage your ongoing orders in the “Orders” panel:
