What chains/networks is Rubicon on?

Rubicon is built on Optimism, a low-cost and lightning-fast Ethereum L2 chain.
Rollups (both optimistic & zero-knowledge) are Ethereum's future execution layers, and the Rubicon order book protocol will be deployed on the leading ones.

How do I move tokens to Optimism?

The Bridge in our App finds the best bridging route to Optimism and other chains. Keep in mind that to pay network fees (gas), you will need ETH on Optimism for Rubicon transactions.
You can purchase ETH (or another token) directly into a wallet on Optimism by using Buy Crypto on the App sidebar. This fiat on-ramp from Ramp supports credit/debit cards, ApplePay, and some bank transfers.

What are the fees?


How do the Liquidity Pools work?

The Rubicon order book protocol has liquidity pools. Liquidity providers (LPs) deposit tokens into a single asset pool and receive bathTokens, which represent their share of the pool. (Ex. LP deposits ETH, receives bathETH)
Liquidity pools are used by active market makers (strategists) to provide liquidity on the order books. Yield from market-making goes to LPs (bathToken holders) and strategists earn a performance fee.
View bathTokens holdings (Pools LP positions) under Portfolio on the app.

What tokens are available for trading?

The Rubicon protocol is permissionless: the order books support trading for any ERC-20 token!
Follow this guide to add a new token/trading pair locally on the App, keep in mind liquidity can be low on new trading pairs.
