1inch Network Deploys on Avalanche
This integration will provide 1inch users access to Avalanche-based liquidity sources.
The 1inch Network, a DeFi aggregator, has expanded its aggregation and limit order protocols to Avalanche. The move will provide 1inch users access to several Avalanche-based liquidity sources, including the 1inch Limit Order Protocol, Aave, Baguette, Canary Exchange, Curve, Elk Finance, KyberSwap, Lydia Finance, Olive Cash, Pangolin Exchange, SushiSwap, Trader Joe, YetiSwap, and WAVAX. In terms of on-chain activity, Trader Joe is the most used dApp on Avalanche with an average daily trading volume of $223M.
As one of the most popular DeFi protocols, 1inch makes decentralized transactions more efficient by giving users multiple ways to exchange cryptocurrencies. According to Dune Analytics, 1inch has surpassed over 1M users and $120B in overall trading volume on the Ethereum network alone.
“1inch’s main goal is to offer users the best deals across the blockchain space,” said Sergej Kunz, co-founder of 1inch Network. “To achieve that, 1inch protocols constantly expand to new chains, and the expansion to Avalanche will offer 1inch users more options for cheap and fast transactions.”
The 1inch Network unites three separate decentralized protocols, aggregating liquidity from a variety of decentralized exchanges to facilitate cost-efficient transactions and enabling features like limit orders. Two of these protocols will be launching on Avalanche as part of its expansion:
- 1inch Aggregation Protocol: It sources liquidity from various liquidity sources and is capable of splitting a single trade transaction across multiple DEXes to ensure the best rates. The protocol is powered by a Pathfinder algorithm — an aggregation information service from the 1inch Network. Within less than a second, it finds the best trading paths across multiple markets, taking gas costs into account.
- 1inch Limit Order Protocol: A limit order is a financial instrument with which you can place an order to buy or sell an ERC-20 token at a target price. For example, you can put up for sale 2 WBTC tokens at a price of no lower than 82,415 DAI tokens. The 1inch Limit Order Protocol provides various functionalities for flexible trade management, including conditional orders, dynamic pricing, extra RFQ support, and many more!
