Yes! DexGuru is currently completely free to use. All features on the DexGuru are available to everyone once they have connected their wallet.
Trading tokens on DexGuru is also completely free, but bear in mind you will still need to pay Network Transaction Fees (Gas Fees) as you would if you were normally swapping on a DEX/AMM.
All swaps on DexGuru are routed through the 0x Protocol API, Paraswap, or 1inch API. All orders are optimized through their exchange network.
No, you don't have to connect your wallet to use DexGuru if you choose not to, but some features will be limited. We encourage users to connect their wallet as it provides full access to the DexGuru platform, along with allowing you to save tokens to your favorites, buy and sell tokens, setting price alerts & more!
When you connect your wallet for the first time on a new device, you will be asked for a Signature request to verify you are the owner of the address. There are no blockchain transactions, gas fees or approvals associated with this at all, so feel rest assured that your funds are SAFU!
Additionally, you will be asked for token approvals before swapping a token on DexGuru to allow the smart contract to spend your tokens from your wallet in exchange for the one that you are buying. This type of Token approval is exactly the same as if you were swapping directly on a DEX/AMM and will cost a small Network Transaction fee (gas fee) as it is a transaction on the blockchain.
Degen Mode in the bottom portion of the DexGuru Market Selector
Tokens that are fall under the Full Degen Mode in the Market Selector are tokens that are not on at least one verified Token List. We recommend double checking and verifying contract addresses for Tokens under Degen Mode to ensure you're interacting with the correct Token.
Token lists are an industry standard created by Uniswap to help users navigate the vast number of tokens in the world of crypto. Since anyone can create tokens, it's become for bad actors to create scams, fakes or duplicate tokens to take advantage of market participants. Token lists are created and approved by reputable parties in the Crypto industry to help users interact with authentic tokens.
As the rate of token issuance accelerates, it has become increasingly difficult for users to filter out high quality, legitimate tokens from scams, fakes, and duplicates. Across the space, projects are managing and maintaining rapidly growing token lists. The end result is a lot of wasted time, slow listing processes and scammed users. In addition, builders should spend their time building, not deciding which tokens are legitimate and which are scams, fakes or duplicates.Today, we are excited to announce Token Lists, a new standard for creating lists of ERC20 tokens. This is a community-led initiative to improve discoverability and trust in ERC20 token lists in a manner that is inclusive, transparent, and decentralized.
We use Token Lists to help provide additional context when browsing Tokens. Keep in mind, verified status is NOT investment advice, a stamp of approval, or any kind of recommendation. It is only an indicator that a particular Token is reputable enough to be recognized by a trusted List creator.
Additionally, tokens that are not verified and that fall under Full Degen Mode does not necessarily mean they are fraudulent either - they have just not been vetted and verified by List creators yet.
As always, DYOR, double check all Token contract addresses that you're interacting with to ensure they are the right one, especially if they are not on Token Lists.
Recently Listed tab in Market Selector
For the vast majority of cases, Tokens shown in the Recently Listed tab will also fall under Degen Mode due to their recency of being created within the past 24 hours. During this time period, it is very unlikely that these tokens have been able to been verified into an existing established Token and as a result will fall under Degen Mode.
Currently Token logos are being pulled from 3 off-chain data sources, if one source does not contain a Token's Logo, then the next one will be used. They are listed and ranked below in terms of priority:
Alternatively, you may visit Trust Wallet's Asset Repo & CoinGecko to update your Token Assets through their channels.
