Trisolaris is a decentralized exchange on the NEAR blockchain which runs on the Aurora Engine. It delivers high speed trading to users for less than a fraction of the cost of Ethereum, or any Ethereum Layer 2.

What is Trisolaris

Trisolaris is a one-stop trading platform for the NEAR blockchain. It is the first DEX on Aurora and enables seamless trading experience similar to Ethereum’s for a fraction of the cost.

It takes advantage of the great underlying architecture provided by the Aurora engine, and claims to only focus on DeFi.

DeFi is still a small and young space, yet to be fully capitalized by institutions and retail investors. Trisolaris aims to solve problems such as capital efficiency, proper liquidity incentives and derivatives.

Trisolaris’ core benefits

  2. Fees are paid in ETH
  3. Vast rewards by the NEAR community

That’s not even the best part — Trisolaris has dual-reward pools on top of the usual liquidity pools to earn rewards for your favourite coins. This includes $NEAR, $ETH, $LUNA, stablecoin $UST and more.

Trisolaris enabled LUNA double rewards for atUST<>LUNA and atUST<>WNEAR farms on Trisolaris DEX.

The pools will receive double rewards for the next three months and 2770 LUNA (approximately $230,000 at today’s prices) will be distributed evenly across both pools.
