5 min readMay 18


Greetings, Rubicans! Another week unfolds at Rubic as we continue our tireless efforts to elevate your crypto experience and offer you a platform with the smoothest trades. This week, we are thrilled to unveil another round of promotions in collaboration with zkSync Era. On the development front, our team has been working hard to enhance the Rubic ecosystem. Let’s dive in!


  1. SyncSwap Integration

Rubic has teamed up with SyncSwap to bring you a seamless integration as an On-Chain Provider for the zkSync Era network!

Also, our project has just been integrated as one of the zkSyncEra bridges on SyncSwap! This is a great milestone for us and we’re very happy to be a part of the zkSync ecosystem. Thank you, SyncSwap, for the opportunity!

Finally, we’re going even further by adding 1inch as a provider and XY Finance as a cross-chain provider on zkSync Era, along with Symbiosis & Multichain, further enhancing the capabilities of our ecosystem.

2. Staking 2023

Rubicans! The Rubic Staking Program is launching soon on the Arbitrum Network, offering rewards in native Arbitrum ETH tokens for staking RBC, including your SwapToEarn RBC tokens.

Staking periods range from 3 to 12 months, and the total staking pool is uncapped, offering a projected APR of up to 7–15% in native Arbitrum ETH, funded by the allocation of 50% of Rubic’s earned fees.

To participate in staking, you’ll need to bridge your RBC from Ethereum to Arbitrum using the official Arbitrum bridge. RBC earned in the SwapToEarn program can also be staked. To do so, you’ll need to claim them first — it’ll also be possible on Arbitrum!

3. Fiat On-Ramp Update

Our dedicated development team is in the final stages of updating Rubic’s fiat on-ramp, bringing you an enhanced and seamless experience. We’re thrilled to announce that, following successful testing, we’ll soon be releasing a brand new version of Rubic’s fiat on-ramp solution.

We understand the importance of having a convenient and efficient way to enter the world of cryptocurrencies. With this update, we’re taking our commitment for user-friendly onboarding to the next level. The new version of Rubic’s fiat on-ramp will simplify the process even further, making it easier than ever to jumpstart your crypto journey.

ETA: May 21st-22nd

4. New SDK Integration

The philosophy is all about capital efficiency and sustainable yields, and they believe that a project is only as strong as its ecosystem. They don’t believe in taking shortcuts by forking existing code like many other projects out there. BNB stands for “Build and Build” — and that’s exactly what stands for. They’re here to push the boundaries of what’s possible in DeFi and bring new concepts to the table that can truly change the game.
