What Is 1inch and How to Buy It?

What Is 1inch and How to Buy It?

What is 1inch

1inch is the native token on an eponymous aggregator for decentralized marketplaces. 1inch exchange allows its users to track multiple exchanges from a single platform. The protocol collects liquidity from DEXs, using smart contract technology for this purpose, splitting one transaction between several exchanges, which gives users the opportunity to optimize their transactions and get the best possible rates

How it works

The 1inch ERC-20 token is a control and utility token on the platform. It is used to control all 1inch network protocols through various modules, as well as a voting mechanism. It possesses the Instant Governance structure where the token holders and key protocol stakeholders can directly vote on protocol and configuration parameters. One of the key features of instant control is that bidders can continuously and dynamically vote to change protocol settings without waiting for bids to be submitted or completed. Each 1inch token holder can stake their tokens, as well as participate in the management of liquidity pools. The weight of each user's vote is in direct correlation with the number of tokens supplied.

Advantages and disadvantages of 1inch

+ The 1inch token takes the management capabilities of the DeFi space to the next level. It enables the most efficient and transparent way to vote on certain protocol settings. With such a model, the voice of each user matters. Moreover, the token currently holds a position towards the end of the top-100 currencies. It has had valuable investors from its inception like Binance Labs, Galaxy Digital, Greenfield One, Libertus Capital, Dragonfly Capital, FTX, IOSG, LAUNCHub Ventures и Divergence Ventures. The project is also receiving much approval from Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, who believes these are the protocols that are fueling the rise of DeFi. These factors indicate that there has always been interest towards the platform and its native token in the crypto circles. The technology was also tested by independent audit companies.

- Despite the token’s success in 2020, the developers themselves have said it’s not an investment tool but rather a tool to use on the native platform or be implemented by third parties. This is further proven by the fact that, according to CoinMarketCap, no one stores 1inch for over a year, so the functions and value of the token are limited to the native ecosystem it belongs to. This poses a risk for the token since it’s in close correlation with the success of the eponymous platform. 98 percent of the token is also concentrated in the hands of large holders. 

Where to buy 1inch

During the inception of the token, users could acquire it if they adhered to certain criteria, as well as with the help of liquidity mining. Currently, 1inch is traded on most popular exchanges like Binance, KuCoin, FTX, Coinone, Huobi Global, OKEx, Uniswap, and CoinTiger. The trading usually happens in pairs with BTC, USDT, ETH, WETH, USDC, and such.How to exchange 1inch on SwapSpace?
