About DeGate

DeGate is an Order Book DEX on Ethereum built with Zero-Knowledge technology. DeGate provides a possibility to trade the spot market with Limit Orders on a DEX. In addition, DeGate offers a decentralized grid trading function.

DeGate is focused on being user-friendly and is built on the principle of Trustlessness, or ‘Can’t do evil’, with no Admin Key. Users can expect super-low gas fees that are the result of DeGate’s special Efficient Gas Saving technology. This innovation ensures significant gas savings while maintaining a decentralized protocol.

DeGate also enables permissionless listing, meaning that any token can be listed in a permissionless manner through an open listing mechanism. Expect DeGate Mainnet on Ethereum later this year.
