Is there a way to provide liquidity to Uniswap-like contracts without initial funds on one side of the trade?

For example, if I create my own token called Token, I believe this token should be worth one dollar each.

I have one thousand tokens, but I don't have one thousand dollars.

I would like to sell these tokens on Uniswap (or similar DeX) for at least one dollar. Is that possible?

Obviously, there would only be liquidity in one direction initially (from Token to dollar), but once people buy enough Token, it will gradually balance out the pool and thus there will be liquidity in the other direction.

No. Because by definition, this would not be liquidity.

You cannot do such a trade on open markets. Instead, you can do a crowdsale where you can lock the price as the only counterparty who can sell.

  • Ok thanks. Yeah I was going to do a crowdsale, but figured it would be a better user experience if I could do it through a DeX like Uniswap instead. Jul 12 at 11:10
