Avalanche DEXs APIs

Avalanche DEXs APIs

A decentralized exchange (DEX) is a cryptocurrency exchange that operates without a central authority, allowing users to transact peer-to-peer from wallet-to-wallet whilst maintaining complete control of their assets. DEXs reduce the risk of price manipulation, as well as hacking and theft because crypto assets are never in the custody of the exchange itself.

Announced in August 2021, the Avalanche Rush is a $180 million liquidity mining incentive program, that seeks to onboard some of the best DeFi protocols to the AVAX network. It aimed to empower both new and existing DeFi traders with several easy-to-use, fast, and cost-effective applications. Since then, the total number of transactions on the network has gone up from over 4 million to 18.5 million.

The Avalanche Foundation also launched Blizzard, an over $200M fund in November 2021, dedicated to accelerating development, growth, and innovation across the ecosystem of builders and users of the Avalanche public blockchain. The fund is focused on four key areas of growth across the Avalanche ecosystem: DeFi, enterprise applications, NFTs and culture applications.

The Avalanche DeFi Ecosystem seems to be at the tipping point of an explosion. There are hundreds of projects building on Avalanche. From the success story of Polygon, we all know how much incentive programs encourage developers to build projects on top of the platform and attract more users.

Today we will talk about some interesting stats and how to get DEXs trading data deployed on Avalanche blockchain using our DEX APIs.

If you want to get Avalanch DEX APIs access, all you need to do is sign up on our Blockchain IDE and get your API keys!!

Trade volume on Avalanche

Let’s analyse the volume of trade taking place on the various DEXs.

Total trade Total volume Average trade Median trade Contracts
Trader Joe 19372716 $57 billion $2944.83 $243.43 8192
Pangolin 5761874 $13 billion $2263.72 $285 2193
LydiaFinance 654562 $280 million $429.23 $158.50 99
Elk 294075 $111 million $380.460 $89.73 110
HcSwapAvax 234756 6.24537e+25 2.66e+19 $.14E+09 78

As visible from the above table, Trader Joe has the highest total trades, total volume and number of contracts too. However, Pangolin has the highest median trade.

Here is a pictorial representation of the data provided in the table.


You can obtain the above data using this query as well.

DEX protocols on Avalanche

Taking a look at the protocols on the Avalanche blockchain, we find that the many DEXs on Avalanche are forks of popular protocols such as Uniswap v2 protocol.


Protocols Trades Currencies Contracts
Uniswap v2 6298670 2355 4287
Uniswap v3 137 4 6
Uniswap 9 3 2
Mooniswap 4 3 3

The Uniswap v2 protocol is the leading protocol on the network followed by the Uniswap v3 protocol by a great margin. The other protocols have almost negligible contributions as compared to the Uniswap v2 protocol.

OHLC Data for Avalanche

Using Bitquery’s APIs, you can easily get the OHLC data for the Avalanche network. You can use the following query for the same!

  ethereum(network: avalanche) {
      options: {limit: 100000, asc: "timeInterval.minute"}
      date: {since: "2022-01-23"}
      exchangeName: {is: "Trader Joe"}
      baseCurrency: {is: "0x1fe4869f2c5181b9cd780a7e16194fa2c4c4293d"}
      quoteCurrency: {is: "0x6e84a6216ea6dacc71ee8e6b0a5b7322eebc0fdd"}
    ) {
      timeInterval {
        minute(count: 5)
      baseCurrency {
      quoteCurrency {
      trades: count
      maximum_price: quotePrice(calculate: maximum)
      minimum_price: quotePrice(calculate: minimum)
      open_price: minimum(of: block, get: quote_price)
      close_price: maximum(of: block, get: quote_price)
