Now you can choose between XY Finance, Symbiosis, or Orbiter for the most optimal swaps. Whether you’re looking for speed or cost-effectiveness, it’s all available on Rubic!

3. Rubic’s API Development

We’re thrilled to announce the pre-alpha release of the Rubic API! We’ve already had our first integrators testing the API and providing valuable feedback.

What’s Included into API pre-release:

  • Alpha Methods: Access core Rubic’s functionalities like fetching swap rates, swap data, supported DEXs and providers, and 80+ blockchains.
  • Limited Providers (For Now): Explore a curated selection of cross-chain and on-chain providers.

This is a pre-alpha version. It’s not intended for production use and hasn’t undergone extensive testing. Please exercise caution and avoid using it with any funds you’re not comfortable to lose.

Stay tuned for the official release announcement soon!

4. CoreDAO Upcoming Integration

This week, we are starting the integration of CoreDAO network. We’re also delving into the integration of Eddy.finance and SushiSwap as on-chain providers, and Orbiter as cross-chain.

Core DAO started as a community looking for better solutions, and that’s what it remains. With principles grounded in the premises of both Bitcoin and Ethereum, their power comes from embracing multiple ideas and communities.

We’re further committed to expanding our reach by integrating Stargate V2 in the future. Stargate V2 prioritizes cost reduction, broader chain compatibility, and capital efficiency.
