Buying & Selling MLP

Investors can provide liquidity and receive a share of the Leverage Trading and Zero Slippage Swap fees by depositing ETH and/or USDM in return for MLP tokens. MLP tokens can purchased through the MLP Liquidity page.

The price of MLP is determined by the aggregate value of all tokens in the liquidity pool after allowing for all current profits and losses from open trades.

To purchase or sell MLP follow these steps.

  1. First go to the MLP Liquidity page.

  2. Select whether you wish to buy or sell MLP. In order to buy you will need to provide an amount of one of the whitelisted tokens. If selling you can elect to receive your funds in any of the same whitelisted tokens, initially USDM or ETH.

    • To incentivise the optimal token ratios within the MLP pool. If the transaction improves the composition ratios then the fees will be lower and conversely if the transaction drives a deterioration in the composition ratio then the fee will be higher. More information on MLP Rebalancing can be found here.
