Everything a Chain Needs in 1 DEX
KyberSwap is the leading multi-chain DEX and is the place to trade and earn the best rates in all of DeFi. Pioneer of concepts such as wrapped BTC (WBTC) and Dynamic Market Making (DMM), KyberSwap is announcing its 11th chain integration with BitTorrent Chain. Existing chain integrations are Ethereum, Avalanche, Polygon, BNB, Cronos, Fantom, Arbitrum, Velas, Aurora, and Oasis Emerald. As of March 2022, KyberSwap was the #7 DEX in terms of TVL growth and facilitated over US$8B of trading volume.
As one of the first DEXs to be integrated onto BTTC, KyberSwap provides everything an interoperability chain needs in a DEX along with a comprehensive set of Liquidity Pools, eliminating the need for any other DEXs or aggregators.
Will KyberSwap become the de-facto DEX with the most liquidity and swaps on BTTC and cross-chain bridging with Ethereum, BNB chain and Tron network? The partnership certainly hopes so.
What is BitTorrent Chain (BTTC)?
Already a household name around the world, BitTorrent is an EVM cross-chain protocol designed, which adopts PoS (Proof-of-Stake) mechanism and leverages sidechains for the scaling of smart contracts on Ethereum, TRON and BNB Chains. For next 4 months, users of KyberSwap and BTTC can participate in more than US$1.5M of liquidity mining incentives, with monthly trading competitions, community giveaways, and an exclusive airdrop for all users who participate on-chain with KyberSwap.
To use BTTC features, users need to download/add extension wallets and connect the account address to BTTC. BTTC now supports two wallet extensions, TronLink and MetaMask. However, do take note that KyberSwap currently only supports Metamask. To learn how to connect your MetaMask Wallet to BitTorrent Chain, read this guide.
Why Add Liquidity on KyberSwap?
KyberSwap gives liquidity providers (LPs) the opportunity to maximize returns with the best trading rates and attractive incentives and yields.
- Amplified Liquidity Pools with extremely high capital efficiency; less tokens required to achieve better liquidity and rates compared to AMMs.
- Dynamic Fees that react to market conditions and optimize returns for LPs.
- Better Reliability & Security: Audited by ChainSecurity and insured up to $20M by Unslashed Finance.
- Fully Permissionless: Anyone can easily add liquidity for any token pair to KyberSwap pools, while any taker (e.g. Dapp, aggregator, or end user) can access this liquidity.
- No Centralized Oracle: No third-party or centralized price feed oracle risks. Oracles refer to a middle software that share of info between non-blockchain sources and blockchain sources (middle software that connects blockchain to the outside world)
With KyberSwap, BTTC users can trade and earn with best rates and access the full spectrum of multi-chain DeFi capabilities.
And that’s not all! Even more integrations, features, and rewards will be coming up soon!
