Chapter 1 was the launch for our token, Bridge$. Chapter 2 was the launch of Bridges Exchange as a DEX. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that Chapter 3 has finally arrived: The new Bridges Exchange Aggregator is live.
You can (and should) check it out at https://bridges.exchange/swap, but you should also read the rest of this blog post first.
When we set out in 2021 to launch the Bridges brand, we did so with the full understanding that we operate in a crowded market — one with many projects, many exchanges, and even a growing number of blockchains.
To be successful, we knew we needed to bring innovation and, in fact, innovation remains one of our core pillars, and every Bridges Certified project on the Exchange brings some form of innovation to the ecosystem. Copycats go home!
There are a number of aspects to Bridges that reflect this commitment to innovation.
- First, we’re mission-driven and have a goal of making the future of finance accessible to everyone. Not just experienced insiders, but women, the underbanked, and other groups that haven’t previously had access to tools and knowledge about DeFi.
- Second, we’re committed to making DeFi a safer place. Although we can’t eliminate every risk, we can do our part to thoroughly vet projects and project developers–and to work to keep unscrupulous actors out of our ecosystem. You can read more about our project listing criteria here.
- And finally, the new Aggregator. It turns out that getting the best swap possible wasn’t all that easy beforehand. Of course, there were always slow transactions and high gas fees to deal with. But there was also just a lot of looking around: “Should I swap here or should I swap there? What about the other dozens of Exchanges that I didn’t check and maybe don’t even know about?”
The new Bridges Aggregator does all of that work for you, but it goes two steps further than anyone else. In addition to finding the best swap price possible, Bridges Exchange’s aggregator tells you how much you’re saving (or losing) with various options, and can actually execute the swap on your behalf. It’s smart, it’s simple, and it’s fast.
And… we’re still not done. Chapter 4 will bring further enhancements to nearly every part of the Bridges ecosystem, so start swapping — but don’t stop following us as we’re continuously rolling out new functionality to make DeFi better, safer, and faster for everyone.
OK… now go visit the new aggregator.
