Octane Finance Testnet

What is Octane Finance?

Octane is a fully decentralized rewarding limit order platform driven by network of executors. The goal is to provide users seamless experience of limit orders by removing the friction associated with the current platforms.

How to access the dApp?

  1. Head on to beta.octane.finance
  2. Connect using Metamask (ensure that you’re connected to Rinkeby Test Network)
  3. Get your testnet tokens (WETH - steps below)
  4. Try your first limit order

Explore Octane as a Trader

Step1: Create a limit order by selecting the pair you want to trade (WETH-DAI), side (buy/sell), amount, and limit price. Once you create the order base token will be sent to compound protocol to generate interest. You can cancel your order anytime (You will still receive interest generated till that time.)

Ensure that you’ve sufficient number of tokens before placing the order.
In the beta we only have one token pair WETH-DAI, So in case if you’re placing buy order you need DAI and WETH for sell order

Place order in Octane

Step2: Till the order gets executed, you can head on to the Active orders tab, where you can keep track of gains received, status, and transaction hashes by expanding the order.

All the gains will be denominated in DAI in the test phase.

After order execution, your tokens are sent back to compound protocol to generate interest on the executed funds.

Step3: You can withdraw executed funds anytime. On withdrawal, your executed funds along with any interest generated will be sent back to your wallet.

Explore Octane as an executor

An executor network monitors and competes for pending limit orders to get rewarded by the transaction fees.

Anyone can participate in the network to become an executor. To keep it super simple, we have an executors tab with a very intuitive user interface where anyone can just go and execute the orders as per their convenience (Ensure that you’ve enough Rinkeby WETH to execute the transaction)

Order execution will be failed in the following conditions:

If buy order
Current price greater than limit price

If sell order
Current price less than limit price

Executor engine bots will be implemented in the upcoming version of the product which will make the current execution process of limit orders more reliable.

If faucet button transaction fails or more WETH is required for testing you can visit https://faucet.rinkeby.io/ . You can claim up to 18.75 ETH/3 days which you can later convert to WETH
