1INCH price rallies 30% as its monthly DEX volume nears $6 miliardi

This week the total value locked in DeFi platforms reached a new high at $26.2 billion and this record high was achieved even as Bitcoin price appeared to be slipping into a downtrend.

This asymmetrical performance from DeFi-tokens suggests the sector has staying power and the ecosystem built up around DeFi platforms is likely to have a far reaching impact that may even alter the way traditional finance operates.

As DeFi protocols gain traction, decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregators have also emerged among the thriving trading and staking market. 1inch protocol sources liquidity from different DEXs and executes the token swaps at the best rate in one single transaction. This saves users from having to pay high gas fees on each asset swap that might occur as the transaction from, take for example, Bitcoin to wrapped Bitcoin then the desired asset takes place.

Negli ultimi 2 settimane, 1INCH, the exchanges utility and governance token has rallied more than 135% and the current trading volume and TVL suggest that there is room for further price appreciation.

Launched on Dec. 25, the 1INCH token behind the 1inch DEX aggregator and it currently holds the ninth position in DeFi Total Value Locked (TVL) ranking. It is worth mentioning that the Mooniswap decentralized exchange (DEX) also belongs to 1inch.

Mooniswap is 1inch’s version of Uniswap and as an automated market maker (AMM) its smart contracts are responsible for the ERC-20 tokens-based liquidity pools.

Although currently set to 0%, stakers of 1INCH will benefit from the eventual spread surplus. Whenever a trade gets executed with prices better than the initial quote, this generates a potential gain for 1INCH stakers. Other parameters such as swap fees and a price impact fee might be changed later but this depends on the platform’s governance voting protocols.

It is worth noting that only 6.5% of the 1INCH tokens have been distributed, while another 30% will be allocated over the next four years.
