Asset Swaps

Swapping assets like ADA for C3 tokens on the Cardano blockchain is a great way for DAOs to diversify their treasury, manage risks, or seize new opportunities. Here’s a simple guide on how your DAO can use Clarity’s features to make these swaps smoothly and effectively.

What is an Asset Swap?

An asset swap lets your DAO exchange one type of cryptocurrency for another. For example, turning some of your DAO's ADA into Charlie3 (C3) or SundaeSwap (SUNDAE) tokens. It’s like trading one currency for another in a foreign exchange market but within the Cardano ecosystem.

Step-by-Step Guide to Asset Swaps

1. Propose the Swap: Start by creating a swap proposal. Clarity offers easy-to-use templates that you just need to fill out. You'll enter how much ADA you want to swap and how many C3 tokens you aim to receive.

2. Community Voting: After you submit your proposal, it’s time for the DAO members to vote. If the majority agrees with the swap proposal, you’re all set to go ahead.

3. Executing the Swap: Once approved, Clarity handles the heavy lifting. The swap takes place using the most suitable liquidity pool on SundaeSwap to ensure you get a good deal.

Customizing Your Swap

Even though we set up default options to make things easy, your DAO might want a bit more control. Here’s what you can adjust:

  • Choose a Different Liquidity Pool: If you have a preferred liquidity pool that you trust more or that offers better rates, you can easily switch to that.

  • Adjust Slippage Tolerance: Worried about the price changing during your swap? Adjust the slippage tolerance settings to make sure you don’t lose out if the market shifts.

  • Simplicity: Straightforward tools and automatic handling of the technical stuff.
