The 1inch Network (1INCH) is a decentralised exchange aggregator with a mission to deliver the best prices and rates on its decentralised exchange (DEX). To achieve this, the protocol identifies the most economic and effective ‘trading routes’ available across multiple DEX platforms to ‘reroute’ its traders and swaps to ensure the best live market rate.
Since June 2021, the 1inch Network reports that their ecosystem offers over fifty liquidity sources for its users via Ethereum (ETH), the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), Polygon (MATIC) and Avalanche (AVAX). By enabling their users to trade digital assets across several blockchains, 1inch deliver enhanced trading options and for this reason implements more than the traditional automated market maker (AMM) systems.
The 1inch DEX is powered by its native 1inch (1INCH) ERC-20 utility and governance token, which was launched on Christmas Day in 2020. Holders of the $1inch token can contribute toward protocol developments regarding it’s DEX framework, including trading fees, governance rewards and price impact costs. In addition, $1inch holders can participate in liquidity pools and receive rewards via their staking infrastructure.
As part of the platform’s algorithm, optimum market rates and exchanges are identified to complete the swap, meaning 1 trade may be sourced from and filled among several providers. While further external third-party interoperability enables even more tokens to be supported, 1inch is currently configurable with coins supported via the ERC-20, ERC-721, ERC-1155, and BEP-20 token standards.
Further options are available on the 1inch Network regarding its transaction fees. Fuel or gas costs have experienced excessive volatility in recent months and can be a concern for users. All $1INCH transactions display the fee at the time and gives traders the choice to modify and reduce the fee based on how they deem appropriate. $1INCH utilises the Chi Gastoken (CHI) on its exchange to offer this minimisation, using the Ethereum smart contract ‘storage refund’ protocol to maximise efficiency.
Like many start-up crypto tech firms, the 1inch vision gained momentum at the ETHGlobal hackathon in New York in 2019. Russian cryptographers Sergej Kunz and Anton Bukov both developed and founded the organisation and put to practice their long-standing experience and backgrounds in smart contract security.
Kunz is the CEO at 1inch and one of its - Co-Founders. He has worked at Commerce Connector, a product price aggregator firm as its Lead Developer, as well as at Porsche in both DevOps and cybersecurity. Kunz is the Lead Software Engineer and Architect at 1INCH.
Bukov is the CTO at 1inch and its other Co-Founder. He has extensive experience in decentralised finance, working previously for Russian companies overseeing their smart-contract audits. Kunz also runs the Russian-language CryptoManiacs YouTube channel which Bukov was a frequent guest and spokesperson on, and ultimately started co-hosting. Bukov is the Lead Fullstack Software Engineer and Architect at 1INCH.
The 1INCH Network has established numerous collaborations with several reputable AMM platforms across Ethereum, Polygon and Binance Smartchain. In addition, the project has formed substantial investment relationships including Binance Labs, Galaxy Digital, ParaFi Capital, Loi Luu, Kyber Network’s Founder and Illia Polosukhin, one of the Co-Founders at NEAR Protocol.
