Telos USD Swaps user interface

Telos Swaps offers token swaps similar to Bancor or Uniswaps. This approach works well when token values are expected to be independent. It, however, does not work well when the assets in the swap pool are expected to be of similar value (as in the case with USD stable coins). This problem is solved using low price slippage converters such as those found in The USD Swaps pool on makes use of a low slippage converter to support USD token swaps.

Tokens supported by USD Swaps

  • USDT (token contract “tethertether” on EOS)
  • EOSDT (token contract “eosdtsttoken” on EOS)

Both tokens are wrapped by the Telosd cross chain bridge (Telos contract “”, EOS contract “”). The bridge is decentralised, using five reporters to witness transfers on one chain and communicate to the other. It requires 3/5 consensus to complete cross chain transfers.
