For trade sizes less than 35 dsETH



  • Wallet - Argent (currently found in the Swap crypto section)

For trade sizes larger than 35 dsETH

For larger trades (of more than 35 dsETH), purchase is available via Flash Mint on the Index Coop app. Compared to typical DEX trades, Flash Mint can facilitate more cost-effective large trades by minting new units from the underlying product components. This is especially helpful where the cost of slippage would exceed the cost of gas for buying each token and minting a new product unit.

* Please note, the 35 dsETH Flash Mint recommendation is an estimated threshold, and the best purchase path will depend on a number of factors, including:

Gas: The cost of a mint is roughly 10x the cost of a swap, so when gas is higher, it increases the breakeven point for minting liquidity

Profile: If there is more/less liquidity, it will change the cost to enter/exit via a swap.

Current Premium/Discount: If there is a discount, it is advantageous to buy on a DEX. If there is a premium, it is not advantageous.
