Gas-free Swaps

Traders pay two types of fees when using a DEX: Gas fees for the network and exchange commission for the DEX. While the latter is reserved for the protocol treasury, gas fees are required for preventing malicious actors from spamming the chain, and incentivizing nodes to create blocks.
Mangata DEX allows traders to save money by only charging a single fee: Mangata is a DEX and a chain at the same time. Because it is an appchain, the rules of the chain can be changed and it’s possible to remove the gas fees altogether. Mangata utilizes the exchange commission as spam protection and eliminates the gas fee.
