With the latest release, Kwenta introduces a new feature: Next Price orders. In short, Next Price orders allow Kwenta to offer a low fee alternative for genuine traders while avoiding frontrunning opportunities. Let’s dive into it:

TL;DR on Next-Price Orders

  • There is a Keeper fee of 5 sUSD. It is refundable only if the trader cancels the order.
  • There is a Commitment fee which is equal to the Market Order fee. The difference with the lower Next Price Order fee is rebated to the trader once the order executes successfully.
  • If for any reason the next price order fails or is canceled, traders forfeit the commitment fee.
