Key Differentiators

Source: https://defillama.com/chain/Solana
  • Displays the approximate value of the tokens you are trading before and after a swap.
  • Fair Price Indicator shows the difference between the quoted price by Orca vs price trackers such as Coingecko and others in the future. This helps users determine whether the prices fall within their expected range during their trades.
  • Price Impact Indicator which shows the slippage that will occur with the trade.
  • When all of these indicators are acceptable, Orca shows a big green check mark above to let you know that the trade is good to go. Otherwise, a Rate Warning or Slippage Warning is shown to users so that they can make their own judgement whether to proceed. When prices are better, it shows Great Price.
  • All other pertinent information is also displayed transparently here, users are able to see the fees % as well as the total amount of fees that are paid to liquidity providers. This is a stark contrast to some AMMs that do not display such information.
