How to Swap and add Liquidity on Cetus which on Aptos Mainnet
In this article, we will take a closer look on how to do swap and provide liquidity on Cetus on Aptos mainnet which launched on 12 October 2022 and bringing a fresh atmosphere in this boring bear market.
But lets first see what is meant by swapping tokens and what is liquidity pools in which we are putting our tokens.
SWAP: Lets say you have Token A in your wallet and you want to exchange them to Token B. So you need an exchange to do the needful. Cetus provides you with this option. We will see later on how to achieve this. Trading one asset to proportional amount of another asset on a dex (Decentralized Exchanage).
Swapper: User who place and execute swap orders on a dex.
Liquidity: Tokens that are stored in a pool contract and are able to be traded against by traders.
LIQUIDITY PROVIDER: A liquidity provider, also known as a market maker, is someone who provides their crypto assets to a platform to help with decentralization of trading. In return they are rewarded with fees generated by trades on that platform, which can be thought of as a form of passive income. For example, APT-ZUSDC is a liquidity pool that contains the liquidity provided for the token pair APT and ZUSDC.
