What is Price Impact?
In blockchain technology, the Price Impact Mechanism works to prevent manipulation of cryptocurrency token prices by Whales. The whales buy or sell a large number of tokens or coins and this impacts the market price of the coin.
To prevent this, the Price Impact mechanism has been introduced. With this mechanism, the purchase or sale price of a crypto asset in a DeFi Exchange becomes inversely related to its trading quantity.
In a nutshell, if any whale tends to purchase or sale a large number of shares of a coin’s supply that is presently circulating in the market, then its purchasing price or selling price along with the charges becomes too uneconomical to buy. So, the whale has to cancel the transaction.
