What is the difference between Swapping from Wallet and my Trading Wallet?

Swap allows you to Swap using your Wallets and your Trading Wallets. For example, assuming you had BTC in your Wallet and Trading Wallet, the following options would be available for a BTC-ETH Swap:


 BTC Wallet -> ETH Wallet

 BTC Wallet -> ETH Trading Wallet

 BTC Trading Wallet -> ETH Trading Wallet 

The key difference between these two wallets is how they send the assets for the Swap. Wallets send the Swap asset on-chain, using the asset’s blockchain, whereas the Trading Wallet does not. Trading Wallet Swaps are executed and settled custodially.

The benefits of Swapping using the Trading Wallet include: Reduced Network Fees, improved reliability and faster Swaps. If that is what appeals to you when Swapping, we recommend using the Trading Wallets for your Swaps.

On the other hand, if non-custodial, on-chain Swapping  is important to you, you can continue Swapping with your Wallets.
