Fee-free trading for market makers

Last week we changed Veil’s trade fee structure. Any trade on Veil includes both a maker and a taker. The maker’s order is left on the order book, and the taker pulls the order from the order book by filling it. To encourage more liquidity, we’re removing the trading fee for market makers. Market makers now pay 0% fees!
