Building the Binance of DeFi
DeFi trading, for everyone
CivTrade v2 offers more trade types, smarter routing, and cheaper gas than Uniswap or any other DeFi protocol. Choose market or limit trades, always at the lowest cost.

Introducing CivTrade

Civilization ($CIV) aims to make the world of DeFi (Decentralized Finance) accessible to anyone and everyone.
Whether because of visible or invisible costs, a lack of order books or trade history, or other many familiar functions usually found in traditional finance in general, this world, like anything that is new, may be confusing at first.
That was the first generation of DeFi.
Enter CivTrade, the start of a new era of the DeFi world.

Why

DeFi’s first fully automated order book (AOB), CivTrade brings to its users the ability to earn fees, all with zero slippage and zero price impact (more on that later!). Even better, CivTrade supports over 5,000 tokens on the Ethereum and Polygon networks, as well as boasts lower gas fees than Uniswap. We also brought limit orders, a standard of the traditional financial world, to DeFi, and with it, automated execution and auto smart routing. Limit orders allow you to set orders in advance, freeing you from the need to wait for the precise moment the token you want to trade for is at the price you want.

What

Limit and Market Orders:
Limit orders, or “target” trades, are the optimal order for all Polygon trades and Ethereum mainnet trades worth 0.3 ETH or more. Check the "Gas Details" page for exact gas savings.
For smaller Ethereum mainnet trades or when execution speed is crucial, market trades, also called “instant” trades, are best.

How exactly do orders execute?

Market orders execute, for all intents and purposes, instantly, similar to, for those of you who have used it, Uniswap, at the market price the moment the order is placed. Limit orders are not executed instantly, but are rather carried out in 4 steps:
  1. 1.
    You enter the details of your order on our dapp.
  2. 2.
    Our CIV smart contract confirms that the trade is feasible and opens a custom single-sided liquidity pool on your behalf.
  3. 3.
    Uniswap v3, an advanced liquidity pool that creates a market and enables anyone to trade for your tokens, executes your trade within the pool when the market price of the asset moves to the price you ordered.
  4. 4.
    CivTrade's automated on-chain monitoring completes the trade and immediately disburses funds directly to your wallet accordingly. The market trade offers instant execution, exactly like Uniswap.
