Is there any decentralized exchange with zero trading fees for ERC-20 tokens at the moment?

All fees except gas fees should be zero. I already tried Bancor and Kyber but, as far as I can tell, they both charge fees as far so I would like to find a zero fees exchange.

AirSwap is a decentralized, peer-to-peer trading network for Ethereum tokens with no trading fees. https://airswap.io

  • But there's slippage right? So that is almost worse and a fee of sorts.

StellarX and ECX are two decentralized exchanges with no fee.


If someone promote "no fees" for an ERC20 swap on a DEX, they are lying. It is not possible as it is running on the ETH network, which uses fees to run...

Using a DEX for a swap is interesting when it has enough liquidity to avoid big slippage. To attract this liquidity, DEX put some additional fees on swaps, fees they redistribute to the liquidity providers!

So you have ETH fees for running the swap smartcontract, + DEX fees.

Here is a little comparison of additional fees between the different DEX You can see uniswap has 0.3% additional fees, and defiplaza.net only 0.1% I like this defiplaza DEX as even its smartcontract is optimized for low fees swap. enter image description here

  • Thanks Alfred. Note that your answer is technically incorrect, as the question was asking "zero trading fees". Gas fees are separate from trading fees. It is possible to create pools on Uniswap v3 with zero fees, but there is no incentive for anyone to do so. Commented Jun 30, 2021 at 9:29

Radar Relay is a very popular DEX with no fees at this time.

    But it requires wrapping ETH right? That is not so hot. Any other option which is free but can handle actual ETH?

  • All decentralized exchanges, as they exist today, will need to use WETH. See my answer here for the reason why. Commented Nov 19, 2018 at 10:53

    The use of wrapped ether is certainly not a technical requirement for a decentralized exchange, but it's a popular choice that simplifies things.
