AVNU Overview

What is AVNU?

AVNU is a decentralized exchange protocol focusing on providing optimal trade execution for Starknet.

Addressing the limitations of Automated Market Makers (AMMs) in DeFi, such as capital inefficiency and poor price discovery, AVNU integrates a Request-for-Quote (RFQ) system with an advanced DEX aggregator. The RFQ system leverages off-chain pricing for better rates and MEV protection, while the DEX aggregator combines liquidity from various sources, ensuring competitive prices and efficient trades.

AVNU's mission is to enhance the trading experience in DeFi with superior execution and security.

Frequently asked questions

AVNU is a decentralized exchange protocol designed to offer the best execution in the decentralized finance (DeFi) space for Layer 2. It aims to provide better pricing, zero slippage, MEV-protection, and gasless trading, ensuring efficient and seamless operations. AVNU's mission is to build liquidity infrastructure that empowers traders and decentralized applications (dApps) with the best execution, competitive pricing, and access to a wide range of assets on Layer 2s. It aims to deliver an industry-leading user experience and reshape the swap market landscape. AVNU is operated by Alpha Road SA, an independent studio based in Switzerland, and it complies with Swiss laws and regulations. AVNU does not collect and store personal data.

AlphaRoad becomes AVNU in order to merge multiple liquidity sources and provide the best possible execution in the decentralized finance (DeFi) space. By introducing the first Request-for-Quote (RFQ) system and a DEX aggregator on Starknet, AVNU aims to address the limitations of relying solely on Automated Market Makers (AMMs). The RFQ system leverages professional market makers and off-chain pricing algorithms to ensure better pricing, tighter quotes, and minimize hidden costs. Additionally, cryptographic signatures are used to provide MEV protection and maintain a secure trading environment.

The RFQ system is a component of the AVNU decentralized exchange protocol. It leverages professional market makers and off-chain pricing algorithms to provide better pricing and tighter quotes for traders. The RFQ system optimizes the price discovery process and minimizes hidden costs. It also utilizes cryptographic signatures to ensure MEV protection, preventing front-running and maintaining a secure trading environment.

The DEX aggregator is a component of the AVNU decentralized exchange protocol. It scans and combines liquidity from multiple automated market makers (AMMs) to find the best trading route for users. By aggregating liquidity sources, the DEX aggregator minimizes slippage and optimizes trade execution, ensuring users have access to the most competitive prices available in the market. This component works in tandem with the Request-for-Quote (RFQ) system to offer traders a comprehensive trading experience. The RFQ system leverages professional market makers and off-chain pricing algorithms to provide better pricing and tighter quotes, optimizing the price discovery process and minimizing hidden costs. The use of cryptographic signatures in the RFQ system also ensures MEV protection, preventing front-running and maintaining a secure trading environment.

Gasless trading refers to a trading method in which users are not required to pay gas fees for their transactions on the blockchain. The benefits of gasless trading include:

  1. Cost savings: Gas fees can be a significant expense for frequent traders, especially during periods of high network congestion. Gasless trading eliminates these fees, allowing traders to save on transaction costs.

  2. Accessibility: Gasless trading makes it more accessible for users with limited funds to participate in trading activities. By removing the need for gas fees, users can trade with smaller amounts of capital.

  3. Improved user experience: Gasless trading simplifies the trading process by eliminating the need to manage and pay for gas fees. This improves the overall user experience and reduces friction in executing trades.

  4. Faster transactions: Gasless trading can potentially result in faster transaction confirmations since users do not have to wait for their transactions to be included in a block based on the gas fee they paid. This can be particularly beneficial during periods of high network congestion.

Overall, gasless trading offers cost savings, accessibility, improved user experience, and potentially faster transactions for traders in the web3 ecosystem.

AVNU aggregates liquidity by scanning and combining liquidity from various Automated Market Makers (AMMs) through its DEX aggregator. This allows AVNU to find the best trading route, minimizing slippage and optimizing trade execution. By aggregating multiple liquidity sources, AVNU ensures that users have access to the most competitive prices available in the market.
