DeFi protocol 1inch hit a key milestone, crossing a million Ethereum users. The DEX aggregator is known for the liquidity and utility of its token.
1inch released limit order protocol hits a breakthrough
A critical development in 1inch is the network’s users. The DEX aggregator recently made key limit order changes and launched the second version three days ago. The improvements increased the utility of the protocol’s token and contributed to a spike in on-chain activity.
The upgrade saw a significant increase in efficiency for Ethereum swaps amidst rising concerns of the spike in gas fees. The protocol’s ability to facilitate gasless order placing enables its users to swap tokens into Ethereum, lowering transaction costs.
1inch’s V2 protocol has been independently audited by auditors like Certik, Pessimistic, Chainsulting, ABDK and MixBytes.
A developer revealed that users could create limit orders to swap for Ethereum if the token permits.
Over the past 24 hours, over $65 million worth of 1inch tokens were traded. The DEX aggregator has crossed 1 million users on its exchange.
