Listing on Smartdex
This document, prepared by the Autonio Foundation, contains everything you need to know about how our tools can help your project or exchange generate liquidity and increase trading volumes, including a practical example.

Existing Problems

One of the main issues faced by early-stage projects is a lack of sufficient budget to cover the cost of bootstrapping liquidity for their tokens. This can result in a number of self-reinforcing issues:

Lack of liquidity:

  1. 1.
    Difficulty completing transactions without significant slippage.
  2. 2.
    Lack of community and investor interest in the project coin.
  3. 3.
    Insufficient interest from traders, which further curbs volume.

Lack of sufficient and consistent trading volume:

  1. 1.
    A heightened risk of projects getting delisted.
  2. 2.
    Lack of community and investor interest in the coin or token.
  3. 3.
    Difficulty attracting more traders.

Solution

Autonio’s Smartdex, an orderbook plus swap exchange, can help.
Through our intelligent market maker NIOX Maker and our liquidity mining protocol NIOX Swarm, Smartdex provides intelligent crowdsourced liquidity, simply and affordably. It only takes minutes for a user to set up a Market Making Module on a given token pair through exchanges integrated with Smartdex.
And through NIOX Swarm, projects can sponsor campaigns that incentivize consistent liquidity provision across desired pairs.
With Smartdex's intuitive swap interface, users can create liquidity pools and execute fast and low-cost transactions. Users who might pay up to $80 for a swap on Uniswap can execute the same transaction on Smartdex for less than $0.01.

One Matic token (~$1.50) = 200 swaps on Smartdex.
