You will need to set up a Web3 or Mobile wallet that is compatible with the RSK chain. You can also use Ledger or Trezor hardware wallets.
For Mobile wallets, suggested are Defiant, D’Cent, and Math. Just get the chosen one from the store of your smartphone, install it and set it up. Then you can connect your wallet using WalletConnect, which is an open protocol for connecting Dapps to mobile Wallets using end-to-end encryption by scanning a QR code.
NOTE: Always remember to set a password for wallet and keep a backup copy of your recovery phrase in a safe place. Never share it with anyone.
Margin trading has two main aspects: trading with leverage and shorting. In trading with leverage, a trader borrows assets to increase the amount of assets they are trading. By doing so, they magnify the gains or losses of their trade. The borrowed assets are known as a margin loan. To obtain the margin loan, the trader puts up assets that serve as collateral. The terms of the margin loan specify a collateral-to-loan ratio. If the trade falls below the specified ratio, the trade is liquidated and the lender is made whole using the trader’s collateral.
Margin trading also includes shorting. In shorting, a trader essentially sells assets they do not own. The short investor borrows an asset and sells it on the expectation that the assets will lose value. When the trader's expectation was correct and the asset did drop in value the short can be closed. At that moment the trader buys back the asset to repay the loan and the surplus is profit. However, if the price of the asset did increase, the trader will have to buy back the asset at a higher price which would create a loss.
There are different types of fees depending on your interactions with the Sovryn Dapp. You could be trading, swapping, borrowing or lending assets.Trading fees
The Sovryn protocol collects a fee on each trade that is performed. This fee is currently set at 0.15% on each position opening, but there is no fee on closing.Swap fees
Liquidity Providers can provide liquidity to the Sovryn Swap AMM. Unlike most other AMM’s, such as Uniswap, LP’s are not required to deposit both assets into a pool, they can add only one or both if they prefer. Sovryn Swap uses oracles to rebase the ratio between tokens, eliminating most of the possibility for impermanent loss. Sovryn Swap collects a fee on each side of the swap, which is distributed to the LP’s. Currently this fee is set at 0.1%.Borrowing, Lending and Liquidity Pool fees
The interest rate paid by borrowers to lenders is set dynamically based on supply and demand - the ratio of supply to loans. The Sovryn protocol collects an origination fee on every loan, currently set at 0.09%.
If you lend money to a liquidity pool, there is a small withdrawal fee of 0.1% on top of the gained interest, but not in the moment you lend, only in the moment you withdraw. Therefore, you don’t pay a fee for lending your money. You share a portion of what you’ve earned. Interest payments made by borrowers are distributed to lenders.
