Time-Weighted Average Price

TWAP (Time-weighted Average Price) is a strategy used in centralized finance (CeFi) to divide a large order into smaller segments, executing at fixed intervals to mitigate market impact. This method is especially valuable for executing consistent investment strategies, like dollar-cost averaging (DCA), where assets are purchased at regular intervals (e.g., monthly).

Ideal for handling orders that could significantly affect the market due to low liquidity or in times of unpredictable volatility, TWAP helps maintain order execution without dictating the market direction.

Lynex introduces dTWAP, a decentralized adaptation of TWAP, via the Orbs protocol. This innovation enables algorithmic trade execution over time within the decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem. It is designed for traders seeking to automate their investment strategies, ensuring large orders are spread out to reduce price disruption, thereby facilitating a smoother investment process without directly repeating the strategy's benefits.

For a more in-depth exploration of these mechanics, we encourage you to visit the Orbs Network website and delve into their comprehensive documentation.
