MetaMask Swap :New feature Token Swap pitched for best trading experience in DeFi

metamask swap

MetaMask Swap has now officially launched. Metamask is a broswer extension and the most popular and used wallet and gateway for Ethereum. Metamask rose to great prominence this year with the ascension of Uniswap.

Now ConsenSys has recently made a big announcement – a new feature it has added in its kitty which is stated to resolve ancient issues of crypto wallets. The MetaMask Swap feature introduced by the giant aims to compare as well as swap tokens directly within MetaMask.

MetaMask has grown from strength to strength and has emerged as a wallet trusted by millions. It now has more than one million active users of its wallet services and is trusted by them to securely store their digital assets. It also is touted to offer a diverse variety of tokens at the best princess across DeFi.

Known to provide bespoke software solutions for the Decentralized Finance markets, ConsenSys, has established its foothold as the leading Ethereum Software company.

Let’s explore it in detail.

MetaMask Swap: Best Features

  • The new token swaps feature will fetch quotes across several decentralized liquidity sources so that the users can get what they want at the best possible price.
  • Earlier MetaMask navigation was complex and tricky. The user had to go through many decentralized exchanges or aggregators which offer a different set of tokens at different prices. In addition, every token had to be approved for trading adding to the woes. But the new token swap feature offers a platform that has an intuitively integrated user experience and streamlines all available liquidity.
  • The novel platform also aims to bring in greater transparency and efficiency resulting in a  better network experience. 
  • The feature will be initially available to users of the MetaMask extension on the Firefox browser. The concern plans to come up with versions for other browsers as well as MetaMask Mobile.

Benefits of using MetaMask Swap

Token Swap has several benefits in the offering because it has taken into account everything that worked against MetaMask in the past. Some of the most discernible benefits are:

MetaMask Swap Offers more liquidity mining

Every aggregator will interact with different liquidity sources that hold a certain amount of liquidity. By getting orders from many aggregators like Uniswap, Airswap, 1inch.exchange, Kyber, and the likes it will have access to the maximum liquidity across the DeFi ecosystem.

Best prices and tokens

Decentralized Exchange aggregators in the sector employ different trading strategies. This explains why the assets are priced differently. 

But the users of the MetaMask wallet under the new feature can request prices from all the available aggregators and individual market makers. MetaMask will then ensure that every user gets what they want – the best prices across DeFi. Getting orders from different aggregators also ensures that MetaMask user is able to access all the top available tokens in DeFi. 

MetaMask Swap has a great User Experience

To ensure the user doesn’t drive away user-experience is the key. Earlier the entire wallet system was a conundrum of confusion and excessive complexity. But, MetaMask has understood that this could be a problem for them as it could drive away users. Hence it has streamlined its approval process so much so that the users will now be able to access liquidity directly from the MetaMask User Interface. Previously they were required to navigate each DEX separately but this is a more combined and integrated approach that will simplify the entire process. 

MetaMask Swap has Lower Gas Fees

Every single DeFi aggregator pushes to its etched out path to get the best trade. Every route it chooses has a different gas fee to ensure the transaction takes place. MetaMask through its token swap feature will get the best prices for the user. It also will get them the best aggregator which is most gas-efficient for a trade-in question.

MetaMask Swap has Fewer approvals

Earlier the users had to get the due approval for every token on multiple aggregators. This means that several user interfaces for every approval process but with MetaMask’s token swap users need to take approval only once. This directly converts into reduced gas costs and a much lighter approval process. 

MetaMask has registered impressive growth figures. Just a few days ago, the noted platform surpassed the figure of a million active users of the wallet services. 

With the token swap, MetaMask has excelled itself by removing several issues that barred the user from a good experience. By provisioning an optimized trade path, it has reduced complexities leading to better DeFi adoption.

Deriswap: What you Need to Know

Deriswap launched defi legend Andre Cronje – the founder of Yearn Finance

The founder of the revolutionary DeFi protocol Yearn. Finance, Andre Cronje has been an avid crypto promoter. In his attempt to bring products that will redefine the industry, Andre Cronje has introduced a new project.

Dubbed Deriswap, the new protocol will meld the different segments of DeFi including swaps, options, and loans all in one platform. His latest project ‘Deriswap’ is a move towards bringing capital efficiency, something which has not been envisioned in the industry. 

In a post published Cronje said:

“Deriswap allows for a consolidated, capital-efficient market for trading, Options, Futures, and Loans, allowing LPs [liquidity providers] to keep their exposure and enjoy additional fees and rewards,” 

Deriswap information has been restricted to a point because it is still under audit. He has explained that this new protocol would immensely benefit liquidity providers(LPs) in addition to maintaining exposure and extending additional rewards. There are many popular protocols that enable swaps and loans, however, Deriswap varies in its ability to offer multiple functions within one contract. 

Cronje has been around for some time and has already participated in a lot of projects. His other recent projects include Eminence and Keep3r. Eminence garnered the ire of critics as the gaming platform was hacked for $7 million in users’ funds.

But Andre Cronje’s popularity and his intellect with respect to the industry have been always high which is why despite all the earlier troubles people have been funding the contract even before the project has been audited and announced.

Basis Cash launches a new-age stablecoin in DeFi space

Basis Cash : What is it?

Basis Cash, originally known as Basecoin, has launched its stable coin into the new DeFi era. Basis Cash is was based (pun-intedned) on a stablecoin basis which had $133 million in funding after which the US regulators intervened.

The smart contracts opened early Monday, but what also has to be remembered is that this is not the first time when any base-inspired stablecoin is released. At the end of August Empty set was released and now has $100million in market cap.

One of two anonymous leaders off the project who goes by ‘Rick Sanchez’ said: 

“In the long term, we look forward to seeing Basis Cash be used widely as a base layer primitive such that there is organic demand for the asset in many DeFi and commercial settings.”

As is the case of most stablecoins. Basis Cash (BAC) stands pegged to the US dollar implying that one BAC should be equal to the crypto equivalent of one USD. The price of one BAC should be equal to the crypto equivalent of one USD.

Two crypto assets Basis Bonds and Basis shares will be managing the Basis Cash’s price.  Beginning at the end of November 50,000 BAC will be given in a 5-year period implying that 10,000 per day to people who would put any of the 5 stablecoins  DAI, YCRV, USDT, SUSD, and USDC in their smart contract.

In this case the depositors would not lose more than 20,000 stablecoins from any single account. In addition to this, an incentive on a daily basis will be paid on a pro-rata basis. The users also will get their coins back at any point in time. 

Basis Cash will have nothing locked away to guarantee its worth. The only thing that backs it will be an algorithmic method which will help in finding the real market demand for BAC.If the BAC drops below a dollar, the system will automatically issue Basis Bonds. The bonds issued can be bought for one BAC and can be redeemed for one new BAC when the price is much more than $1.

Nader Ali-Naji who originally launched Basis said: 

“A lot of people have reached out to me about Basis Cash. It seems to be gaining traction among the people who backed me with Basis given how many people have asked me about it, but I don’t know anyone who’s definitively decided to back the project.”
