Exchange Information

General

Dolomite is a decentralized exchange powered by the Loopring Protocol. The exchange page allows you to trade dozens of ERC20 token assets right from your wallet.

Exchange Basics

1. Balances

This section of the exchange lists your wallet's Ether balance and token balance for the current market pair. If your wallet also contains wrapped Ether (WETH), it will show that balance as well with the option to unwrap it.

2. Submit Trade

This section of the exchange allows you to place trades on the exchange. You can toggle between buying and selling with the respective buttons in the upper right. Buying and selling refer to the token trading pair, so a buy on the LRC-ETH market will spend ETH to buy LRC, and visa versa. See more details on trading in the section below titled "Trading Basics".

3. Order Book / Trade History

3.1. Order Book

This section shows orders currently placed on the exchange waiting to be filled as well as the current market value of the token. Each row in the top section represents a sell order waiting to be filled. The price in red is the price at which they are willing to sell the listed amount. Each row on the bottom section represents a buy order waiting to be filled. The price in green is the price at which they are willing to buy the listed amount. Clicking an order will fill the details of it into the Submit Trade section on the left side so that you can easily fill a waiting order. The number in between the top and bottom sections represents the current market value of the token, along with its value in the selected native currency. The bars on the right side represent the connection to the market, hover over it with your mouse for more details.

3.2. Trade History

The trade history tab can be switched to by clicking the button at the top of this section that says "Trade History". This section of the exchange lists each of the trades that has occurred on that market pair. Each row represents a trade that has occurred, showing the price at which the exchange occurred and the amount that was traded.

4. Open Orders / Past Orders

4.1. Open Orders

This section lists the trades currently waiting to be filled. These are trades that you've placed that have not been entirely filled yet, since orders can be filled in chunks. Each row represents one such trade. For each trade it lists the date and time of the trade, the trading pair that it took place with, the side of the trade (buy or sell), the amount being traded, the price in ETH at which the trade occurred, and the percentage of the order that's been filled. Clicking on an order will bring up a dialogue box with additional details about the trade.

4.2. Past Orders

This section lists the past trades that you've made. Each row represents one trade that you've made, along with the date and time at which it occurred, the trading pair, the side of the order (buy or sell), the amount that was traded, the price at which it was traded, and the status of the transaction (filled, cancelled, expired). Cliciing an order will bring up a dialogue box with additional details about the trade.

5. Market Graph

This section displays a graph of the historical market value of the current token. The graph is powered by TradingView.

6. Market Statistics

This section shows some general statistics about the market pair. Listed is 24 hour volume of the token, 24 hour percent change in the value of the token, last price the token was traded at, the highest price at which the token was traded in the last 24 hours, and the lowest price at which the token was traded in the last 24 hours.

Exchange Basics

Buying

To buy a token, you'll need to have a balance of Ether (ETH). When making a trade, the two things to consider are the amount you want to buy and the price at which you'd like to buy them. The "limit price" is the price you'd like to pay for each token. If the price you're willing to pay is below the current market value, it won't fill right away. You'll need to wait for someone to fill your trade at the price you're asking for. If you'd like your order to be filled immediately, you'll need to fill an existing sell order that has already been placed. The orders in the top half of the order book are sell orders that have been placed and are waiting to be filled. By selecting one of these the information will automatically fill into your buy order. Alternatively, you can click the "ask" button above the limit price field, which will set the price of your order to whatever is the lowest-priced sell order. After that you can just input the amount you'd like to trade at that price, and place your order.

Selling

To sell a token, you'll need to have a balance of the token and a balance of Ether (ETH). When making a trade, the two things to consider are the amount you want to sell and the price at which you'd like to sell them. The "limit price" is the lowest amount you'd be willing to take for each token. If the price you're willing to sell tokens at is above the current market value, it won't fill right away. You'll need to wait for someone to fill your trade at the price you're asking for. If you'd like your order to be filled immediately, you'll need to fill an existing buy order that has already been placed. The orders in the bottom half of the order book are buy orders that have been placed and are waiting to be filled. By selecting one of these the information will automatically fill into your buy order. Alternatively, you can click the "bid" button above the limit price field, which will set the price of your order to whatever is the highest-priced buy order. After that you can just input the amount you'd like to trade at that price, and place your order.
