Lumenswap (LSP) advances its capital efficiency with Smart Order Routing

According to the official statement shared by Lumenswap (LSP) on its social media channels and its main blog, it has implemented a novel value logistics protocol dubbed Smart Order Routing, or SOR.

#Lumenswap now supports the Smart Order Routing mechanism for AMM swaps. 🧠

From now on, you can get a better rate for your trade by having your orders split between different pools; the same steps but with a better rate. 🌈

By default, every protocol in the Stellar (XLM) ecosystem leverages Horizon API in order to find the best pricing and yield farming options for its clients. However, Horizon API’s rates are not necessarily the best ones.

To address this major bottleneck, Stellar (XLM) introduces Smart Order Routing (SOR). For end users, SOR activation results in better pricing for AMM-powered cryptocurrency exchange.

SOR thoroughly analyzes liquidity statistics across all of Lumenswap’s (LSP) pools to find the most profitable and “deep” liquidity instrument.

Cutting-edge DeFi ecosystem with native token LSP: What is Lumenswap?

Once the most profitable pools are found, the Smart Order Routing mechanism splits an order between various pools. For instance, in demonstration mode, a sell order for 200,000 LSP (intended to exchange them for USD Coins, or USDC) was successfully split between LSP/XLM/USDC, LSP/USDC, LSP/AQUA/USDC and LSP/LBTC/USDC pools.

The difference between new and old routing mechanisms and the list of pools available are displayed in the Swap Details section.

Lumenswap (LSP) users can swap their assets through SOR by clicking a rainbow-colored button, while the blue button is used to swap assets in “classic” mode.

As covered by U.Today previously, Lumenswap (LSP) is the first-ever AMM-powered DEX in the Stellar (XLM) ecosystem. It merges the benefits of classic interfaces with a fully decentralized order matching engine.

Lumenswap (LSP) issued its core native asset, LSP, to reward users for their activity as well as to enable participation in community-driven referendums within the Lumenswap DAO platform.
