Greetings, Rubicans! Our team has been tirelessly working throughout the week to improve your Rubic experience. We are thrilled to share with you some exciting updates that we have in store for you.

Development

  1. Argent Wallet Integration

Rubic has recently integrated the Argent Wallet into our platform. Argent Wallet is a leading non-custodial Ethereum wallet that has been built on zkSync, providing unparalleled security and user-friendliness.

With this integration, Argent Wallet users can now enjoy a seamless and secure way to trade their digital assets on our platform.

Our dedication to providing crypto users with the best possible experience has led us to take this significant step towards achieving that goal.

2. Fiat On-Ramp Update

Our development team is currently working on the next update for our fiat on-ramp, which will make it even easier for you to purchase tokens using fiat currency on our platform.

Currently, purchasing tokens involves two steps: buying native cryptocurrency for fiat, and then transferring the native cryptocurrency to the desired tokens. However, with our upcoming update, users may be able to buy tokens directly with fiat currency in certain cases, eliminating the need for the second step.

This update will significantly enhance the convenience and accessibility of our platform, allowing users to seamlessly purchase tokens without additional steps.

3. Rubic’s Growth

We are thrilled to announce that Rubic’s growth has been skyrocketing since the beginning of April!

Over the last week, we have seen a six-fold increase in unique daily users compared to the April average. In addition, we are proud to have achieved a significant milestone with a new record for cross-chain swaps, experiencing an outstanding growth rate of 371%, and 360% for on-chain swaps over the last week. On average, we now have around 1,500 daily transactions on our platform.

Our growth has been reflected in our social media channels as well, with Rubic gaining over +14K new Twitter followers!

These remarkable achievements are a testament to the dedication and hard work of our team, and we couldn’t be prouder of what we have accomplished.

If you’re interested in seeing the numbers for yourself, please check out our Rubic General Dashboard on Dune Analytics at https://dune.com/rubic_exchange/rubic-general-dashboard.

We will continue to keep you updated on our progress and achievements, so stay tuned for more exciting news from Rubic!
