KyberWidget now on CoinGecko for Decentralized, Instant Token Swap

in coingecko •  last year  (edited)

CoinGecko is pleased to announce that we have integrated with KyberWidget to allow users to swap selected ERC-20 tokens seamlessly and easily within our website. We at CoinGecko firmly believe in a decentralized future in which financial markets are open and decentralized exchanges play a more prominent role.

Therefore, we are happy to work with Kyber Network to integrate KyberWidget into our website. Kyber is one of the pioneer decentralized exchanges on the market providing on-chain liquidity. Kyber aims to make instant token swaps accessible, connecting the fragmented tokenized world by enabling instant and seamless transactions among platforms, ecosystems and other use cases.

Integrating KyberWidget was a very simple and easy process. It can be integrated in less than an hour and is flexible enough to allow customization on our end.

With KyberWidget, it is now easy to conduct decentralized token swaps. You can easily exchange your favourite ERC-20 tokens on CoinGecko without having to create an account on an exchange.

How Does It Work?

As a simple illustration, a user can buy selected tokens on CoinGecko from our homepage or from a selected ERC-20 tokens page. It takes only 3 simple steps, as shown below:

⦁ Decide on the amount to purchase

⦁ Confirm the transaction

⦁ Broadcast the transaction

Making transactions seamless and secure without compromising the user experience is a key proposition of this integration. As soon as the token pair and the amount to exchange are indicated, a user simply unlocks his or her wallet using Metamask to approve the transaction. With the widget, users can confidently exchange as transactions are executed, or will be reverted should the indicated rate become invalid due to changes in market conditions.

The selected ERC-20 tokens on CoinGecko that are now available for KyberWidget swaps are KNC, DAI, OMG, SNT, ELF, POWR, MANA, REQ, RDN, APPC, ENG, SALT, ETHOS, ADX, AST, RCN, ZIL, PAL, LEND, TOMO, and ZRX.
