🪙Token Page

A description of the information CandySwap provides for each trading token.

Token Page

The interface may appear overwhelming to users that need to become more familiar with Order Books. This article will talk you through all the data provided to make your experience more enjoyable.

Figures 1 & 2 show an overview of the CandySwap interface for a given token. The primary information conveyed is:

  1. Price

  2. Order Book

  3. Depth Chart

  4. Swaps

Price

This data shows the token's price, deemed the last successful swap price. A plot of this over time is also provided to display the trading cycle.

Order Book

The Order Book lists 'Buy'(s) and 'Sell'(s). It displays the amount of a token available at a specific price. The buys are displayed in green, while the sells are shown in red.

Example:

Figure 3 shows (in red) 453 units of $LEAF selling at 0.022 $ALPH per unit. The closest buy is at 0.0197 $ALPH per unit with 30 $LEAF available at that price. So, in this scenario, the 'buy' can't satisfy the 'sell', and no trades happen.

Depth Chart

The depth chart is a visual representation of the order book; it dynamically changes as more offers are submitted. It is a standard analytical tool used in the stock markets; some methods of interpreting it are discussed in the learning section of this doc.

Swaps

A list displaying a token's successful swaps is shown in the Swaps section.
