Trading on decentralized exchanges (DEX), users are usually faced with one ultimate issue: it is almost impossible to buy a large number of tokens without causing price spikes, resulting in unfavorable rates. The price slippage originates from the commonly used xyk liquidity model and is worst when the liquidity in the trading pool is small.

At WanLend, our mission is not only facilitating lending and borrowing. We aim to improve the DeFi user experience in general. The standing issue of large slippage does not skip our eyes. Hence, we are here to offer a solution.

Introduction to Stream Trade

Stream Trade is developed and operated by the WanLend team. The idea behind Stream Trade is that instead of buying or selling all tokens at once, we design a system that continuously buys or sells smaller amounts of tokens at given time intervals. For example, Bob wants to buy $100,000 WAN using wanUSDT. If he buys at once, he can only get $90,000 WAN due to the price slippage. Alternatively, he can use Stream Trade to buy $100 WAN each time for 1000 times, and over the course of 4 days. All of this will happen automatically without Bob’s intervention.
