As THORSwap continues to mature as a DeFi protocol, a key priority lies in building truly innovative solutions to tackle the challenges of cross-chain finance.

After numerous bridge hacks and collapse of centralized services —Web3 deserves a better cross-chain solution, and THORSwap is going to give it to them 🔥

SwapKit — THORSwap’s very own suite of cross-chain services provides native cross-chain trading, DEX aggregation, savers vaults (earn), analytics tools and more. With SwapKit, builders across Web3 are equipped with a full featured API/SDK tech-stack to create truly Multi-Chain dApps and products.

Today, THORSwap is pleased to spotlight a new SwapKit integration — Edge Wallet! 🎉

Founded in 2013, Edge is an industry leading self-custody app, with a primary focus on making self-custody intuitive and accessible for all users. While the saying “not your keys, not your crypto” is true, this saying has a major flaw — it doesn’t account for the needs of end users. With client-side encryption and automatic backup of encrypted data, Edge is eliminating the risk of end user error when writing down, backing up, and securing seed phrases.

Well-respected as one of the oldest and most popular crypto wallets with an emphasis on security and privacy, it was a natural fit for Edge to adopt THORChain as a cross-chain solution for its in-app swap services.

After connecting with the Edge Wallet team and understanding their needs, THORSwap provided the SwapKit API for integration of DEX aggregation services enabling seamless swaps of 5,000+ long-tail ERC-20 assets across Ethereum Mainnet and Avalanche C-Chain.

“THORSwap was integral in enabling Edge to provide THORChain DEX Aggregator functionality with minimal effort. Their team was quick and responsive during the development efforts and saved Edge, several man months worth of engineering work. We highly recommend THORSwap’s SwapKit for any others looking to provide DEX Aggregator functionality.”

— Paul Puey, CEO & Co-Founder at Edge

THORSwap’s industry-leading Ethereum + Avalance DEX Aggregator contracts connect liquidity from multiple DEXs, automatically finding the best prices and route for Edge users. This help reduce the custodial and counterparty risk of centralized exchanges, to allow Edge users to retain sole access to their assets.

How it looks in Edge:

That’s not all — the full SwapKit suite empowers devs and protocols across Web3 to finally build truly decentralized Multi-Chain products. Components forming the architecture of THORSwap SwapKit, excluding external dependencies from the THORChain ecosystem include:

  • SwapKit API
  • Token List Service
  • Transaction Tracker
