We’re excited to announce the launch of Zilswap, a decentralized exchange built by Switcheo.
What exactly is Zilswap?
Zilswap is a fully on-chain, decentralized exchange running on Zilliqa, a high-performance, scalable public blockchain platform based in Singapore.
As the newest addition to the Zilliqa’s ecosystem, Zilswap will be at the core of Zilliqa's push into the decentralized finance (DeFi) space by allowing users to trade digital assets on the Zilliqa blockchain for the first time.
Built from the ground up by Switcheo developers, Zilswap uses a constant product automated market maker on top of a permissionless liquidity protocol, similar to Uniswap. Users can trade ZIL or ZRC tokens directly on the Zilliqa blockchain from their wallets, or add tokens they are holding to a liquidity pool to passively earn as market makers.
The platform will launch with ZIL-XSGD as the first token pool, allowing users to enter or exit ZIL through the Singapore-Dollar (SGD) backed stablecoin, XSGD, launched by Xfers today.
Users who hold ZIL and XSGD may contribute to liquidity pools on Zilswap to earn from the fees of each trade. Users without XSGD may convert SGD to XSGD at a 1:1 rate through the Xfers platform as a verified Xfers user here.
We’ll also be launching a ZRC-2 governance token for Zilswap soon. Moving forward, Zilswap will transition control of Zilswap to a DAO controlled by ownership of the governance token. Parameters such as protocol fees will be under the purview of this DAO. Governance tokens will be issued to liquidity providers and users of the Zilswap platform - we’ll be announcing full details regarding this soon!
Finally, Switcheo will also be integrating Switcheo TradeHub with Zilliqa next, leveraging liquidity pooled into Zilswap - stay tuned!
