Development

1. New Providers on Mantle

Additionally, we have integrated FusionX DEX for on-chain swaps on Mantle.

2. New Providers on Base

The Rubic team is excited to introduce XY Finance and ChangeNOW as new providers for cross-chain swaps to and from the Base network. This expansion provides users with the flexibility to select the most cost-efficient route among top options: XY Finance, Symbiosis, Stargate, ChangeNOW, and Squid.

3. ZetaChain Integration

We are continuously enhancing our testnet feature by integrating new networks. In our latest update, we’ve added support for the ZetaChain testnet.

ZetaChain is a public and decentralized blockchain network, built on the Cosmos SDK and Tendermint Consensus, that aims to connect different blockchain networks.

ZetaChain marks the fourth test network to be seamlessly integrated into the Rubic App. In just several weeks, 2,100+ unique users have successfully executed over 1,300 cross-chain swaps and more than 3,300 on-chain swaps across various testnets. 🟩

As always, your collective engagement and trust in our platform continue to drive our growth and innovation.

4. XY Finance DEX Aggregator

Rubic has successfully integrated XY Finance DEX into a wide range of networks, including Ethereum, BNB, Polygon, Fantom, Avalanche, Arbitrum, Optimism, Moonriver, zkSync, Polygon zkEVM, Linea, and Base.
