Gas fee – Phí Gas

When a user performs any transaction on the blockchain (buying, selling, approving, …) and needs to put the transaction into the block, it needs to pay a fee, called the Gas Fee.

Gas fee is calculated based on Gwei, the bigger Gwei, the more gas fee will cost, but in return the transaction will be done faster.

Gas Fee will be different on each different Blockchain.

Gas war

Launchpad is where current projects use to issue tokens and raise IDO capital, including a few names such as Polkastarter, DAO Maker, Solstarter, BSCPad, etc.

Leverage

Leverage is a lever, only users borrow money from the exchange to go long/short.

This will help players with less capital to make more money if the price moves in a favorable direction (Long, the price goes up, or short, the price goes down), but also makes the player lose money when the price moves in the opposite direction (Long. and the price goes down, or short and the price goes up).

Liquidity

Liquidity is the liquidity on the DEX or CEX exchange. If there is a lot of liquidity, it means that the transaction will not be deviated too much, due to the high demand for trading in the market.

An example of a highly liquid asset is BTC and ETH, if traded in an amount of about $10,000, it will not make the market fluctuate much, but if you use $10,000 to buy newly launched tokens, it will push the price up very high because it does not. anyone sell.

Liquidity Provider

These are the people who provide liquidity for the DEX (Uniswap, Sushiswap, …), in return they will receive a part/full transaction fee, possibly with some other benefits such as project tokens.

However, this, if not carefully calculated, will lead to Impermanent lost.

Long – Leveraged buy

Long is the act of borrowing money from the exchange under a certain leverage to buy an asset, then wait for the high price to sell and return the capital (with borrowing fee) to the exchange.

Example: Player has $100, using x10 leverage, means borrowing $900 floor to generate $1,000 capital.

Then when the asset price goes up, close the long order, sell it and return to the floor $900 + fee, profit and capital will belong to the player.

However, if the asset price drops sharply, will be liquidated and lose $100 of capital. This is a high-risk, high-return trading method.

Mainnet

Mainnet is the official network – the official Blockchain version after the developers (developer) tested on the testnet successfully.

When the mainnet is released, it means that the coin has an independent Blockchain network, has its own wallet platform… However, the mainnet can be changed when new updates from the project team appear.

Margin – Leveraged trading

Margin (or Margin Trading) is a way of trading to borrow assets of the floor to raise capital, after taking profits or being liquidated, the assets will be returned to the floor. Margin includes long/short (buy, sell short).

Non-custodial

Non-custodial usually refers to DEXs and wallets that do not store user funds. That is, the manufacturer only has to create the product, the user will keep his property.

Unlike DEX, which is CEX, users have to create an account and deposit money on the exchange, which means that the exchange will keep this amount.

Another thing that distinguishes Non-custodial and Custodial is whether the user holds the passphrase, the private key of the wallet or not. If yes, then it is Non-custodial.

Stablecoins are coins that are pegged to a fixed asset to stabilize the cryptocurrency market.

Stablecoins must be backed by the assets it “anchored” such as gold (Digix Gold Tokens – DGX), some fiat currency (Tether – USDT), or other cryptocurrencies (MarketDAO – DAI).

Short – Leveraged Sell

In contrast to Long, Short only acts to borrow assets of the exchange according to a certain leverage and sell immediately, then wait for a low price to buy back to the floor (with borrowing fee).

Example: Player with $100, using x10 leverage, means borrowing an asset equivalent to $900 from the floor, then selling off $1,000.

When the asset price decreases, close the short order, buy it back and return to the floor the above asset + fee, profit and capital will belong to the player. However, if the asset price rises sharply, it will be liquidated and lose $100 of its capital. This is a high-risk, high-return trading method.

Testnet – Test Network

Testnet is a test network – a version of Blockchain for developers (developers) to test new features without affecting the current protocol.

Usually, any coin has its testnet for testing new features.
