What is QuipuSwap?

What is the difference between FA1.2 and FA2 standards?

FA1.2 is a single-asset ledger meanwhile the FA2 standard represents a wide range of token types and implementations. They declare different interfaces but serve the same purposes.

Can I exchange tokens of different FA standards?

Yes, it is possible. Token-to-token swaps are performed via batch transactions, utilizing XTZ as a middle token i.e. through exchanges from one token to XTZ and from XTZ to the second token.

Can I transfer my shares?

Yes, shares are FA1.2 or FA2 tokens that implement all the functions stated by the declared interface: TZIP-7/TZIP-12.

Do I need to vote for the baker?

How can I get liquidity rewards?

When the user provides his tokens to the pool, he receives share tokens. They have underlying value in the XTZ and FA tokens. Trading operations alter this value as well as the proportion of the tokens it represents. Once the user disinvests his tokens and burns his shares, the user's underlying value is calculated based on the current rate and both XTZ and FA tokens are sent to him. Theoretically, if the exchange prices were close to the market price, the rate would grow and the user would withdraw more tokens than he had invested. Alternatively, if there was a significant difference between DEX and external prices, the arbitrageurs could drain the value and potentially cause an impermanent loss.

shares=sentXTZtotalShares/tokensInPoolsentTokens=sharestokensInpool/totalSharesshares = sentXTZ * totalShares / tokensInPool \\ sentTokens = shares * tokensInpool / totalShares
When shares are burned, the amount of received tokens is calculated as following:
receivedXTZ=sharesxtzInPool/totalSharesreceivedTokens=sharestokensInPool/totalSharesreceivedXTZ = shares * xtzInPool / totalShares \\ receivedTokens = shares * tokensInPool / totalShares
