Why CivTrade?
CivTrade introduces limit orders to Decentralized Finance, which is exploding:

In spite of this explosive growth, the vast majority of trade volume still occurs on Centralized Exchanges (CEX).

Why is this the case?
If you look closely at Uniswap, which is where the majority of trades occur, there are a number of costs, both visible and invisible, associated with DeFi trading, namely price impact, slippage, and liquidity provider fees:

As if this was not enough, the “man in the red coat” icon will be familiar to many people in the DeFi space who use Dextools, signalling that a transaction has been front-run, essentially draining your funds:

Front-running is a complex and potentially costly issue, so is to be avoided.
CivTrade is the solution.
