What is Etherdelta?

Etherdelta is a new kind of exchange, a decentralized exchange. Decentralized exchanges offer a new way of trading where all deposits are kept in public smart contracts instead of private custodial wallet controled by exchange operator. This architecture reduces risk for traders as they can audit exchange at all times, making sure their deposits are always accessible to them.

Smart contracts that Etherdelta is running are deployed on Ethereum blockchain, which enables adding any ERC20 token to the exchange. This tutorial will guide you through the process of listing new ERC20 token, and putting it in the order book so that anyone can buy it.
