Withdrawing Tokens From DeversiFi

You have two options to withdraw your tokens from DeversiFi back to Layer 1. You should always use fast withdrawals wherever possible as the fee works out the same, withdrawals are instant and you have more optionality.

Option 1 - Regular Withdrawals

DeversiFi settles zero-knowledge cryptographic proofs of DeversiFi trading activity once per day. The maximum time that you will need to wait for a Regular withdrawal is 24 hours.

Until your withdraw is ready for you to send back to your on-chain/Layer-1 wallet, the withdraw will display as 'Pending' - you can make the final TX to send back to your layer-1 wallet when the withdrawal displays as 'Ready to send.'

You pay the gas at the end of the withdrawal process (when you make the final TX to send back to your Layer-1 wallet)

Option 2 - Fast Withdrawals

DeversiFi supports a fast withdrawal system for certain tokens. Funds are made available on layer-1 within a few blocks and at any address you specify. This saves you money as you dont need to make any additional 'hops' once you withdrawal your tokens, as you can send them to an address that is different to the one you deposited from.

DeversiFi pays the gas on your behalf, instantly

DeversiFi uses a type of cryptography called STARKs to prove and verify trading activity on DeversiFi in a trustless manner. This means that trading on DeversiFi is self-custodial. DeversiFi cannot take possession of customer funds and in the unlikely scenario where DeversiFi were to go offline, traders can activate an ‘escape hatch’ via the Data Availability Committee to retrieve their funds.

Trades are signed and submitted off-chain, allowing traders’ off-chain balances to be updated instantaneously after each trade. When enough time has passed, a proof of the new DeversiFi state balance is submitted for settlement on the Ethereum blockchain and is verified by the Data Availability Committee as well as the StawkWare smart contract.

This batching process has some distinct advantages. As trading activity is not limited to the underlying Ethereum blockchain capacity, DeversiFi can trustlessly process over 9000 trades per second whilst at the same time passing gas savings onto traders in the form of lower trading fees. Trading fees range on DeversiFi between 0% - 0.2% and DeversiFi traders pay no gas for placing, executing or cancelling orders. This is in contrast to on-chain self-custodial exchanges, where fees are in the range of 0.3%-0.5% with traders also competing to pay gas costs in order to execute trades.
