Features of LlamaSwap
As per the announcement, traders can choose the best price queried from multiple DEX aggregators. DefiLlama will charge no fees for this service, and users will get the same price as they would if they traded on a DEX aggregator’s website. Instead, DefiLlama will earn its revenue share from the aggregator platform the trades are routed through.
DefiLlama will also verify the gas prices and trade routes of various aggregators to make sure that the price quoted to traders is accurate. The platform also has an opt-in privacy mode which allows traders to prevent other aggregators from linking a wallet address to an IP.
