Multi-chain DeFi

From fully on-chain order book DEXs, to bridgeless multi-chain swaps, the Internet Computer provides an unmatched tech stack for DEXs to thrive on and DeFi to flourish.

Everything on chain

The risks of trading and holding tokens on centralized exchanges is high. Even decentralized exchanges with frontends hosted on centralized cloud providers are not safe from hacks or rug pulls. Thanks to the web-serving capability of canister smart contracts on the Internet Computer, and their ability to host large amounts of data, DeFi platforms can exist 100% on the blockchain with no dependency on centralized components.

Multi-chain swaps

Via Chain-Key Signatures, the Internet Computer has the ability to sign native transactions on other blockchains without using risky bridges. Today, users can seamlessly swap between BTC/ETH in seconds for a few cents with 0 gas fees by using ckBTC, ckETH, and soon ckERC-20 tokens.

Build multi-chain DeFi

The Internet Computer offers an array of innovative features to build next-gen DeFi.

Bringing ERC-20 tokens to ICP

Building on Chain-Key Signatures and HTTPS outcalls, Oisy, a browser-based Ethereum wallet secured by the Internet Computer, can already natively support a plethora of ERC-20 tokens. Plugging into services such as Infura and the like, ICP smart contracts sign transactions for any ERC-20 token without relying on insecure bridges.

Access Web2 without Oracles

Blockchains today have to rely on oracles if they want to access price data from Web2 APIs. Using HTTPS outcalls, the Internet Computer can query up-to-date prices from any traditional Web2 API without oracles, which reduces costs and increases speed. Making calls to the Exchange Rate Canister, you can already query price data.
