The partnership comes just a month after we…


It gives us great pleasure to announce that our decentralized, cross-chain liquidity protocol will be launching on Polygon (formerly Matic), the ‘Internet of blockchains.’

Though Polkaswitch was built on Polkadot’s interoperable blockchain, we have long intended to bring our aggregator to a wider user base. Polygon’s scaling solution is the perfect fit, particularly given how many traders have this year fled Ethereum and started using the network to trade and farm in a user-friendly, low-fee environment.

By expanding to the leading scaling and infrastructure platform, Polkaswitch will be able to aggregate liquidity from the various decentralized exchanges (DEXs) that are…


Why Polkaswitch Is Building on Polkadot

Multi-chain liquidity aggregation is the next phase in decentralized exchange, providing the multi-asset accessibility required to disrupt the dominant centralized players. To deliver on that vision with Polkaswitch, we need a decentralized infrastructure that can provide scalable, interoperable, and upgradeable architecture to combat the bottlenecks, high fees, isolated ecosystems, and complex governance structures hampering the usability of existing networks.

As we’ll explore, Polkadot delivers on all three and is exactly why we are building on its blockchain of blockchains.

Scalability

Most decentralized exchanges and DEX aggregators are isolated, predominantly based within the Ethereum ecosystem. Given speeds of just 15 transactions per…

Pre-Launch Details

Polkaswitch is inviting you to take part in our next exciting phase, as we move forward to complete the public launch of our project and raise awareness in the overall crypto community.

We want to reward all of our die-hard, loyal supporters that have been with us from the very start. The process is very simple. We are giving early fans first access to our launch plus exclusive marketing updates.

How will the Polkaswitch launch happen?

This is currently a closely guarded secret, but we are excited about what we have to come. We have been watching many project launches in recent months and we believe…


First-generation decentralized exchanges (DEXes) provided an alternative to centralized exchanges (CEXes), facilitating token swaps with minimal fees. Order books were still required, however, and liquidity problems persisted. The automated market maker (AMM) model then fixed this problem by using liquidity pools rather than order books. AMMs offer liquidity providers an incentive to supply token pools and collect fees generated by traders who execute swaps.

The marketplace remains fragmented, however, with liquidity still lacking on individual DEXes compared to their CEX counterparts. …


We’re pleased to announce that Polkaswitch has partnered with Manta Network, the interoperable, privacy-preserving defi stack. Built on Substrate, Manta Network leverages zk-SNARKs, a non-interactive form of zero knowledge proofs, to deliver scalable, private transacting and trading. Manta Network comprises a decentralized privacy payment protocol and a decentralized privacy token exchange protocol.

Together, we will work on addressing defi’s shortcomings, increasing liquidity, and realizing the dream of privacy-centric, permissionless cross-chain trading.

“Manta Network’s approach to on-chain privacy preservation is refreshing and deliverable at scale, and we are greatly looking forward to sharing ideas and resources as we usher in a…


A new decentralized liquidity protocol is aiming to address DeFi’s shortcomings by offering seamless cross-chain trading. Backed by several leading blockchain-centric VCs, Polkaswitch enables traders to bypass financial intermediaries and institutional investors while interacting with a wide range of assets on Ethereum and Polkadot. A permission-less protocol governed by a community of users and liquidity providers (LPs), Polkaswitch promises a sleek, intuitive trading experience for those who have grown weary of high network fees, low liquidity, and a lack of blockchain interoperability.

But why is decentralized trading needed in the first place? Well, for a start, because centralized trading platforms…
