Bid
The Bid is the price at which a buyer is willing to purchase a commodity or Cryptocurrency. The buyer usually wants to buy a commodity for the lowest price possible, hence the bid price is always lower than the ask price. The bid is the current demand for a given commodity.

This is the price at which the holder or owner of a commodity or Cryptocurrency wishes to sell it. The seller's pricing level is almost usually higher than the bid price. The supply of a certain product at any given time is known as the ask.

If Crypto X has a bid price of \$5 and an ask price of \$5.20

Given data :

Bid price of Crypto X = \$5
Ask price of Crypto X = \$5.20

By using formula

Putting values in given data .

\$5.20 - \$5 = \$0.20

Given data :

Bid price of Crypto X = \$5
Ask price of Crypto X = \$5.20

By using formula :

Putting values in given data:

0.20 ÷ 5.20 × 100 = 3.846%

If Crypto Y has a bid price of \$8.40 and an ask price of \$8.80

Given data :

Bid price of Crypto Y= \$8.40
Ask price of Crypto Y = \$8.80

By using formula.

Putting values in given data .

\$8.40 - \$8.80 = \$0.40

Given data :

Bid price of Crypto Y= \$8.40
Ask price of Crypto Y = \$8.80

By using formula .

Putting values in given data.

(0.40 ÷ 8.80) × 100 = 4.545%

In one statement, which of the assets above has the higher liquidity and why?

We know that Crypto X has a narrow bid-ask spread, we may deduce that it has a higher liquidity than Crypto Y based on our estimates.
So as it , Crypto X has a narrower spread, it has more liquidity. This signals more trading volumes, which means orders will be filled more quickly.

Explain Slippage

Slippage is a term used in cryptocurrency trading to describe when an order is executed at a different price than the one requested. This is more likely to happen in fast-moving, highly volatile markets. Such markets are prone to abrupt changes in trend, which frequently result in market orders not being filled at the desired prices. The asset's slippage could be zero, negative or positive. It depends on a number of factors, including the asset's price movement, whether the order is for closing or opening a position, and if it is a sell or buy order. It usually happens when there isn't enough traffic, particularly with large market orders, to keep the bid-ask spread at the requested price.

Explain Positive Slippage and Negative slippage with price illustrations for each

Positive Slippage

A positive slippage is a price difference that favours or maintains the buyer or seller ahead at advantage.

Consider the case of a trader who wished to acquire STEEM token for \$0.845 via a market order. When a slippage causes the highest bid price of STEEM to drop to \$0.834, it is considered a positive slippage since it lowers the price at which the trader would have purchased the coin, allowing him to buy more of it for the same amount of money.

On the ask side, if a trader desires to sell his STEEM coin at \$0.845 via a market order, and a slippage causes the price to rise to \$0.86, it is a positive slippage for the trader since he would make more money from the same quantity of coins sold.

Negative Slippage:

Negative slippage occurs when the market price diverges in a way that does not benefit the trader or puts the trader at a disadvantage.

Assume the current TRX market price is \$0.14. If a trader wishes to purchase TRX using a market order and his order is filled at \$0.143, this price difference is referred to as negative slippage because the buyer has just lost money.

If the market price of TRX is set at \$0.14 and the market price is sold at \$0.12, this can be deemed a negative slippage on the part of the seller because the seller has suffered a loss or is disadvantaged by the abrupt price change.
