We regularly review feedback from our users and partners to improve KyberSwapin our quest to be the best DEX aggregator and liquidity protocol in DeFi. Anyone can provide feedback on our community forum here.
Here are some of KyberSwap’s recent upgrades which lower gas costs for traders and provide more flexibility and benefits for Dapp integrations!
Important: With these new improvements, users need to approve the tokens they wish to interact with (swapping/adding liquidity) on KyberSwap again, even if they have done so before.
Optimised Trade Route & Reduced Gas Fees
- We’ve optimized our DEX aggregator such that the number of token transfers for a trade is minimal, i.e no extra token transfers needed when interacting with our Router contract.
- With the optimization in token transfers, users don’t have to pay to gas fees associated with trading Fee on Transfer (FoT) tokens.
Overall, these upgrades mean much lower gas costs when trading on KyberSwap!
In Fee on Transfer tokens, generally, a small portion of every transfer is either burnt or diverted to another wallet (i.e. tax). FoT tokens are common on the BSC chain.
KyberSwap DEX Aggregation enables trading with Fee-on-Transfer tokens in an optimal way.
- Some of the other DEX aggregators may perform at least 2 separate transfers for each trade, thus, users will need to pay the transfer fee twice for FoT tokens
- KyberSwap makes only 1 transfer (in total amount) for both buy & sell, thereby reducing the total fees users need to pay
- If you Swap BUSD → ZUKI (which is a FoT token):
- KyberSwap only makes 1 transfer for BUSD and 1 transfer for ZUKI token
Other DEX Aggregators may make 2 transfers for BUSD + 2 transfers for ZUKI (thus fee is charged twice).
For Dapp Integrations / Partners
Over 100 Dapps have integrated Kyber for seamless token swaps at the best rates for their users. Any Dapp can integrate Kyber using our open source documentation here. The following upgrades make it even more beneficial for our Dapp partners.
Customizable Commission Fees
Our 3rd-party partners / Dapp integrations now have the flexibility to charge a customizable commission fee for each trade that goes through our DEX aggregator, providing another source of earnings for external Dapps utilizing KyberSwap.
Customizable Price Protection
A swap through our DEX aggregator may consist of multiple trades across multiple pools. We now give integrations the flexibility to specify the minimum amount to be returned for each trade in the swap. Thus, we are able to add price protection for our users for each individual trade in the entire swap.
