The good thing about Vega is that fees are due once trades are executed. Additionally, limit orders can be submitted, amended, or cancelled for free. The token comes with liquidity incentives (built-in), and market creation (pseudonymous) that provide ready high-quality, uncensored, unrestricted and robust markets to everyone in the world.
The following are some of the reasons why Vega has already attracted the attention of the crypto community on CoinList.
To begin with, market creation is permissionless. By way of governance voting, the power to create active markets is vested in the token holders. Regardless of the global positioning, anyone can submit proposals for the creation, alteration, cancellation of markets, as long as one is a registered Vega member. Additionally, the mandate to approve or disapprove proposals can only be exercised by members only.
In order to provide a safe and secure market, thorough market analysis and a good relationship with the liquidity providers is of utmost importance. Besides the good market environment, Vega gives token holders the power to prioritize and create the markets they’re interested in.
Proof of stake and Validator nodes provide a faster way to arrive at a consensus. Simply put the nodes are what run the network and ultimately operate the markets. Staking provides maximum security to the network. Basically, preferred validators are chosen by allocating tokens to them. Network trading fee generated is shared by all stakeholders including the token holders, liquidity providers, and Validators.
Governance voting is also crucial when it comes to regulating and controlling market activity. Additionally, governance voting controls issues such as the number of blocks applicable prior to the crediting of deposits and the minimum threshold required for voting.
