Gabriel Abreu, Kassandra DAO

Vela Exchange is a trading exchange that mixes features from both decentralized and centralized exchanges. This article will explore how Vela works and what the VELA token does, all within Kassandra's ecosystem.


In Decentralized Finance (DeFi), you often pick between two options: a decentralized exchange (DEX) or a centralized exchange (CEX). DEXs are great for privacy and control over your assets, but they can be hard to navigate, especially if you're new to the game. On the other hand, CEXs are user-friendly and fast but sacrifice some of your privacy and control.

In this article, we'll explore Vela Exchange, a trading exchange that mixes features from both decentralized and centralized exchanges.

What is VELA Exchange? 

Vela Exchange is a trading platform that aims to give you the best of both worlds. How does it manage that? By integrating features from both types of exchanges, Vela offers a seamless and secure trading experience. You get the user-friendliness of a CEX with the privacy and control of a DEX. It's like having your cake and eating it too.

Vela has some unique features that make it stand out from the crowd.

  • One Click Trading (1CT): Ever found yourself missing a good trading opportunity because you had to go through multiple steps to execute a trade? Vela's One Click Trading lets you make several trades with a single click. Just fund your wallet, and you're good to go.
  • On-Chart Trading: No need to jump between screens to set your buy and sell orders. With Vela, you can do it directly on the trading chart. This makes your trading experience more intuitive and efficient.
  • Asset Variety: Vela isn’t limited to just cryptocurrencies. You can also trade foreign currencies (forex) and precious metals like gold and silver. This gives you more options and flexibility in your trading strategy.

These are just a few of the features that set Vela Exchange apart. The platform is designed to be convenient without compromising on security and control. It aims to make trading simpler and more accessible, regardless of your experience level.

How Does Vela Exchange Work?

So, how does Vela Exchange make trading easy and secure simultaneously? The secret lies in its features. With One Click Trading, you can execute multiple trades almost instantly. Just fund your 1CT wallet, select your trading pairs, and off you go—all with a single click.

But that's not all. Vela Exchange also lets you place buy and sell orders directly on the trading chart. No need to switch tabs or go through complex menus. Simply click on the chart where you want to set your order, and it's done. It's that straightforward.

Another noteworthy feature of Vela is its Multichain Deposit capability. You're not confined to a single blockchain when you trade on Vela. The platform supports multiple EVM-compatible chains like Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, Avalanche, etc.

This gives you the freedom to trade various tokens and optimizes your trading by giving you the best transaction fees and speeds across these networks. So, you're not just saving time with One Click Trading and on-chart orders; you're also saving on transaction costs by choosing the most efficient blockchain for your trades.
