Raydium is an automated market maker (AMM) platform built on Solana where users can swap, trade and provide liquidity to earn yield on digital assets. However, unlike other AMM platforms, Raydium's AMM provides on-chain liquidity to Serum's central limit order book, meaning that Raydium’s users and liquidity pools have access to the order flow and liquidity of the entire Serum ecosystem, and vice versa.

Why is Raydium different?

  1. Faster and cheaper: Raydium leverages the efficiency of the Solana blockchain to achieve transactions magnitudes faster than Ethereum and gas fees which are a fraction of the cost.
  2. A central order book for ecosystem-wide liquidity: Raydium provides on-chain liquidity to the central limit order book of the Serum DEX, meaning that Raydium allows access to the order flow and liquidity of the entire Serum ecosystem.
  3. Trading interface: For traders who want to be able to view TradingView charts, set limit orders and have more control over their trading

What are Raydium Fusion Pools

Fusion pools are liquidity pools that go beyond RAY-incentivized farming pools and allow liquidity providers to earn tokens from projects they support in addition to the trading fees contributed to the pool. Fusion pools enable projects to bootstrap liquidity for their token on Raydium and Serum. Some pools also offer Dual Yield, where users can earn RAY in addition to project tokens.

What is AcceleRaytor

AcceleRaytor is an initiative by Raydium to spearhead the growth of the Solana Ecosystem. It serves as a launchpad for the latest projects to raise capital and drive initial liquidity in a decentralized and interoperable manner while enabling both project and Raydium communities to participate in carefully curated and vetted token offerings.

RAY Token

  • 555 million RAY hard cap.
  • The total RAY mining reserve consists of 34% of all tokens, or 188.7m RAY
  • Emissions will last for approximately 36 months, with halvenings occurring every six months. A halvening means the budget for maximum tokens used for emissions during a 6 month period will halve relative to the previous period. The full amount of the budget will not necessarily be emitted during that period.
  • 0.03% of trading fees will be used to buy RAY and distribute to stakers
