Jupiter DCA Is Now Officially Launched!

ยท 6 min read

In an important step towards building the most powerful and usable set of spot trading features in DeFi, we are thrilled to announce that Jupiter DCA is now officially launched! After many rounds of rigorous testing and user feedback, we have incorporated a ton of improvements based on valuable suggestions and ideas from partners and users to increase platform stability and add more features.


Jupiter DCA Recapโ€‹

2 months ago, we launched the beta version of Jupiter DCA - a non-custodial, on-chain dollar cost-averaging solution to automate the purchase or sale of any token.

When you set up a DCA order, your chosen tokens get moved from your wallet to a special account owned by the DCA program. Imagine it like putting your tokens in a vault. The first order happens right after you create your DCA, and then more orders come in at the times you pick. So, if you're DCA-ing 1,000 $USDC into $SOL every day for 10 days, the first 100 $USDC -> $SOL order goes through when you start, and you'll have 9 more daily orders to go.

Key use cases for DCA include:

  1. Bear market accumulation
  2. Bull market profit taking
  3. Splitting up large orders
  4. Exiting low liquidity tokens

To ensure the best price execution, DCA keepers use Jupiter and also perform price checks against an external price data provider i.e. Birdeye. In addition, to prevent people from querying and hijacking the order right before the order is about to be executed, orders have a + 2 ~ 30 seconds variability.

Upgrades From Betaโ€‹

  • Advanced Pricing Strategy: Introducing Min/Max parameters for users to define a precise, user-defined executable price range. This gives users more control over their investments and helps them avoid buying or selling at unfavorable prices.

  • Expanded Tradable Tokens: Now offering access to over 600 tokens listed on the Jupiter Strict Token List, giving users a significant increase in token selection from the initial Top 20 tokens.

  • Any-to-Any Token Trading Pairs: Enabling trading between any-to-any token pairs for more diverse trading options.

  • Metis Algorithm Implementation: Leveraging the Metis algorithm for enhanced routing and improved pricing.

  • Increased Global Upper Limit: We have increased the global upper limit for a single DCA order from $5,000 USD to $20,000 USD. This change offers users more flexibility for a wider range of use cases.

  • Enhanced Default Slippage Rate for Improved Order Fulfillment: The default slippage rate has been adjusted to 10 basis points (bps) for an improved and better transaction fulfillment rate without disrupting the DCA flow.

  • Enhanced Safety Mechanism with additional checks and warnings: Verifying scheduled date/time, token validation against the Jupiter Strict List, and issuing warnings for high price impact. Users can now see estimated price impacts for each cycle, and lower-cap tokens have more precise decimal market rates, with more warnings and banners to bolster the trading experience.


Advanced Pricing Strategyโ€‹

DCAcomment1 DCAcomment2 DCAcomment3

One of the most eagerly requested additions from our users and partners is the introduction of a Min/Max parameter or Advanced Pricing Strategy, addressing the need for precise control. This feature is implemented at the contract level, empowering users to define a minimum price for selling and a maximum price for buying within their DCA orders, adding an extra layer of control for more precise order execution. This strategy ensures order execution within a user-defined price range. If the price falls outside the range during the execution, Jupiter will reattempt to fill your order at a later time till successful, while also enforcing our randomiser at a later time so your trade remains unpredictable.

DCA2 The example above sets both the minimum and maximum prices for the DCA order to be executed.

  • Minimum price - $19
  • Maximum price - $20

So in this scenario, if the SOL price is within $19-$20, the DCA will execute the order, and if it falls below or pump above the range, Jupiter will retry at a later time to try to check with the price, and if it is within the user-defined range, Jupiter will attempt to execute the order while enforcing our randomiser so your trade remains unpredictable.


Expanded Tradable Token Selectionโ€‹

Additionally, we've significantly broadened our range of supported tokens, expanding from the top 20 traded tokens on Jupiter's list to encompass over 600 tokens. This expansion is backed by the community-verified Jupiter Strict Token List.


Any-to-any token trading pairs & Metis Algorithm Implementationโ€‹

In line with our extensive Metis-powered enhancements, DCA now effortlessly enables trading between any-to-any pairs with improved routing and pricing efficiency.

Metis, our powerful routing engine, dynamically operates on a vast scale. It optimizes routes by splitting and merging input and output tokens, ensuring the best prices for even more complex trades. This enhanced efficiency opens doors to a broader range of intermediary tokens while keeping costs minimal, just a fraction of a cent.

Minimum Frequency and Maximum Cycle Settingsโ€‹

Introducing settings that allow for a maximum duration of one year to meet specific trading needs.

We have a suggestive text that explains each min and max frequency for each iteration, this will make the frequency input feel more natural and it will always show the frequency error message if input falls out of bounds or when the wallet is not connected or no input value.

  • Minute โ†’ 2 - 1440 minutes (~ 1 day)
  • Hour โ†’ 2 - 168 hours (~1 week)
  • Day โ†’ 2 - 30 days (~1 month)
  • Week โ†’ 2 - 52 weeks (~1 year)
  • Month โ†’ 2 - 12 months (~1 year)
