To achieve a significantly higher level of liquidity efficiency than any competing platform, Gains Network uses synthetic leverage, which is not borrowed in any way, anywhere. With a unique synthetic leverage trading architecture, it uses the $GNS utility token to run its trading platform. To execute trades on all gTrade pairs, the ecosystem uses two pools of liquidity.

When these popular US stocks eventually become available to all consumers, that number will likely increase significantly.
