Experience

  • Poola Exchange
    https://github.com/pedromtcosta/poola-exchange

    Personal project of a decentralized pool-based exchange. I created this project for learning purposes, but I believe it could be actually used in real life if deployed to the Ethereum mainnet. The project consists of a Smart Contract and a React application that used web3 to interact with this contract. The Smart Contract allows users to create liquidity pools of any ERC20 tokens they want at any price in ETH, and based on how many people buy from their pools; they get allowances to withdraw ETH or buy tokens from other Pools.
