Over the past few months, our team has been diligently working on an exciting update, and we are thrilled to finally unveil it to you. Discover the key enhancements that have been implemented in our wallet.

Cross-Chain Swaps Revolutionized

We are thrilled to announce a significant advancement in our wallet’s functionalities: the integration of cross-chain swaps with our partner, Li.Fi, to enhance interoperability and flexibility for our users. This update opens up a new realm of possibilities, allowing you to effortlessly buy and sell over 2,500+ tokens across 15 of the most widely-used EVM-compatible blockchains, including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Optimism, Arbitrum, Avax, Polygon, Linea, Base, and more. We’re open to your suggestions for any additional blockchains to support, so feel free to reach out.

Conduct cross-chain swaps easily

Traditionally, exchanging tokens across different blockchains could be daunting, involving multiple steps such as acquiring the gas tokens for transaction fees, identifying a suitable DEX, and transferring liquidity. With our newly integrated DEX router, these challenges are a thing of the past. We’ve streamlined the process to make cross-chain swaps smooth and hassle-free. Our system automatically finds the best routes and manages the complexities, allowing you to receive your desired tokens with minimal wait time.

Multiple routes to conduct a transaction

Navigating the world of swaps is now simpler and more flexible. You have the power to choose the most efficient routes for your transactions, balancing cost against speed. Whether you prioritize lower fees or quicker execution, our platform provides you with all the necessary information upfront — gas fees, any additional commissions, and the number of decentralized exchanges (DEXes) your transaction will pass through.

This upgrade is designed to make your crypto experience more seamless and efficient, removing barriers and simplifying the process of managing your digital assets across multiple blockchains.

Significant Enhancements to User Experience

In our commitment to continually improve, we’ve taken your feedback from our beta testing phase to heart, incorporating many of your suggestions into this latest update. Here are the key user experience enhancements we’re excited for you to explore:

  • Unified Wallet Balance: Now, you can view the cumulative balance of all your tokens across various blockchains in one place, making it easier to get a complete picture of your digital assets.
  • Blockchain Sorting by Value: To streamline your experience, blockchains within the wallet are now organized based on the value of your holdings, ensuring that the most relevant blockchains to you are always at the forefront.
  • Redesigned Activity Tab: For better accessibility, the activity tab has been shifted from the bottom of the wallet to the side menu. This change enhances usability, making it simpler for you to track your transactions and wallet activity.
  • Overhauled In-Browser Popup: We’ve given our in-browser popup a total makeover. This redesign includes new features for managing token information, an activity tab for monitoring recent transactions, and updated network details, all aimed at providing you with a more intuitive and informative experience.
  • Comprehensive Minor Updates: Beyond these major changes, we’ve implemented hundreds of smaller tweaks, including color scheme refinements, new tooltips for better clarity, enhanced error handling, updated icons, and improved ways of presenting information.

These updates are a testament to our dedication to making your experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible. We invite you to dive in, explore the new features, and share your feedback with us. Your insights are invaluable as we continue to evolve and adapt. Stay tuned for more exciting updates coming your way soon!
