A look at the different systems, controls, and tools that Wootrade uses to defend assets on the network

Security in the digital asset space is too big to ignore. Many people list security as one of the reasons they are hesitant to fully enter the space, a concern that isn’t lost on Wootrade. The goal is to let users feel empowered by the Wootrade line of products and use them in a worry-free manner.

An updated explanation of Wootrade’s zero-fee model and how it can align the goals of traders, platforms, and regular users on WOO X.

WOO X has been making a lot of headlines with its zero-fee model. Unlike other platforms, Wootrade is able to optimize revenue streams on the back end, allowing the platform to earn revenue but still offer users a feeless trading experience. Not surprisingly, we get tons of questions from the community about this, so we thought we’d break it down here.

How do zero-fee platforms work?

In the traditional finance world, people use online brokers to trade stocks. Two of the most user-friendly brokers are WeBull and Robinhood, both of which also offer zero commissions on trading. One way to monetize this model is by…

Benefits to be distributed partially among WOO token holders, sharing the value throughout the ecosystem

DeFi was made to be composable — many different protocols and assets can work together to make a more functional and lucrative financial system. There are countless new startups popping up in the space, and some of them will provide a lot of value if given the resources to expand.

What is WOO Ventures?

WOO Ventures was set up to identify early-stage projects that, as they mature, can provide value to Wootrade, the WOO token, and the blockchain space in general. In 2020, the first WOO Ventures investment was made in DODO, a decentralized exchange and aggregator that is now one of the leading…

Let’s start with the basics. What’s WOO X?

Wootrade commits to joining SushiSwap’s Mirin protocol for on-chain SubPools, and the WOO token will join the Onsen menu giving LPs even more rewards

Wootrade and SushiSwap will be working to improve the state of on-chain liquidity and trade execution through the use of SushiSwap’s upcoming Mirin proposal and SubPools. SubPools are a new innovation that allows third-parties, such as exchanges, to provide yield-bearing pools to their users with unique fee structures, reward schedules, and governance parameters. The Mirin proposal was introduced in early January, and after passing, will be implemented later in 2021. Wootrade will be among the first adopters, giving Wootrade users more ways to put their assets to work, while benefiting the greater DeFi ecosystem and SushiSwap in general.

Why are we doing this? A few reasons:

  • SushiSwap is…

The Challenge: Widening the Gateway

In 2019, Wootrade was founded and incubated by Kronos Research, one of the powerhouses in the CeFi trading scene. The vision was to connect exchanges, institutional traders, and OTC desks with a zero-fee liquidity network, based on the idea that aggregation and expertise would make everything more efficient. This quickly gained traction, and in 2020, Wootrade completed a successful seed round, led by some of the top VCs in the blockchain space. Later that year, the WOO token launched, giving retail investors a chance to collect a portion of the value being transacted through the network.

However, it was around…
