Aerodrome is the leading AMM Decentralised Exchange on the Base Layer 2 network that is also built by the same developers that brought you Velodrome, a superior DEX in the Optimism ecosystem. Have they created the perfect formula for a successful DEX?

The primary reason behind Aerodrome’s success is their dedication to their community. Aerodrome has designed the most rewarding DEX that gives back to its users through multiple incentives while maintaining an overall cheap, fast and secure trading experience.

How Does Aerodrome Work?

Let’s take a closer look at all the features:


For traders looking to swap their tokens on Base, whether it’s a memecoin, stablecoin or any kind of altcoin, they can experience trades with minimal slippage and competitively low fees!

Liquidity Pools (LPs)

Seamlessly provide liquidity by depositing tokens on Aerodrome and receive $AERO emissions as a reward. Different LPs will provide different APRs, for example, $USDC/$AERO currently has an incredible APR of 153.64%!


Users can lock up $AERO tokens and redeem $veAERO. $veAERO is then used to vote on which liquidity pools should earn $AERO emissions and the $veAERO holders will be rewarded with 100% of the fees and incentives of the LP they voted for!
