Wootrade will provide liquidity support for both the ALGO token and assets on the Algorand mainnet.
Driven by the goal to create the deepest liquidity network, Wootrade is working to bridge ties to the Algorand ecosystem and community. As a first step, Wootrade will list ALGO on the Wootrade network, enhancing the liquidity for traders on WOO X and more than 15 other exchanges, institutions, and trading platforms.
Algorand is the only blockchain protocol other than Ethereum to have support for both USDT and USDC. In the upcoming weeks, WOO X will begin accepting both USDT and USDC deposits on the Algorand blockchain, providing faster confirmations and cheaper transaction fees for traders looking to transfer assets between accounts.
In the DeFi space, Wootrade has been actively providing on-chain liquidity to trading platforms looking to reduce fees and slippage. They accomplish this via a high-frequency price oracle linked to institutional market-making strategies, giving traders a more consistently accurate price. This allows the DeFi trading experience to more closely resemble centralized exchanges, opening the door for wider institutional and retail adoption. Both Wootrade and Algorand are looking to replicate these solutions on the Algorand mainnet, connecting Wootrade’s liquidity to one of the fastest-growing digital asset ecosystems.
