1inch protocol launches on Avalanche and Gnosis Chain

  • 1inch Network is moving to Avalanche and Gnosis Chain.
  • The DEX aggregator noted that this expansion will boost its DeFi capabilities.
  • The move comes shortly after 1inch Network completed a $175M funding round.

The 1inch network seeks to expand its cross-chain abilities by securing the “best deals across the blockchain space.” The network is now deploying its aggregation and limit-order protocols on Avalanche (AVAX/USD) and Gnosis Chain (GNO/USD).

1inch network is a decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregator, with the latest partnership being its latest move to boost its endeavours in the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector.

Expanding its DeFi capabilities

1inch network has stated that launching on Avalanche and Gnosis Chain will push the protocol’s plans to conquer the DeFi sector. The network has stated that this move will lower the transaction costs and offer high speeds in cross-chain transactions.

The press release from the protocol stated,

1inch Aggregation Protocol and the 1inch Limit Order Protocol have been deployed on Avalanche and Gnosis Chain, formerly known as the xDai chain.

The deployment will have major benefits for 1inch network, given that it will give it access to a new clientele base on both Avalanche and Gnosis Chain. On the Avalanche blockchain, users on the network will have access to protocols such as the 1inch Limit Order Protocol v2, Aave v2, SushiSwap, Trader Joe and YetiSwap.

On Gnosis Chain, users will access protocols such as 1inch Limit Order Protocol v2, Curve v1, Honeyswap, Levinswap, SushiSwap and wxDai.

The co-founder of 1inch Network, Sergei Kunz, also commented on this development, saying, “1inch’s main goal is to offer users the best deals across the blockchain space. To achieve that, 1inch protocols constantly expand to new chains, and the expansion to Avalanche and Gnosis Chain will offer 1inch users more options for cheap and fast transactions.”

1inch network closes a $175M funding round

1inch Network recently closed a $175M Series B funding round. The protocol noted that the funds would be used to expand its service offerings and launch initiatives that will attract traditional financial institutions into the DeFi sector. The firm noted that it wanted to be the bridge for institutions that wanted to venture into the DeFi sector. The $175M funding round was spearheaded by Amber Group, with the two firms having the vision to be a major hub for the DeFi sector.
