Trading LP Tokens


Strategies published on Tradegen have a maximum supply of 1,000,000 fungible tokens and a max pool size specified by the strategy’s developer. The fair market value for tokens is (max pool size / 1,000,000) cUSD. Token prices may deviate from fair market value based on user demand and expected strategy performance. When a strategy reaches its max pool size, users wanting to invest in the strategy would have to buy tokens from existing holders on the marketplace. Token holders may bid up the token price based on how they expect the strategy to perform.

The Tradegen marketplace lists users’ fungible strategy tokens for sale. Each position has an ‘advertised price’ set by the owner, separate from the ‘new token price’. The ‘new token price’ is always (strategy’s max pool size / 1,000,000) cUSD.
