🎨 Our new UI isn’t just about style; it’s packed with exciting features! Let’s dive in. First, we’ve revamped the color palette and the swap window, giving you a sleek and dynamic trading experience.

Say goodbye to confusion — it’s now easier than ever to browse through the provider list. You can see all your choices right next to the swap form. No more guessing — it’s all at your fingertips!

The side window shows crucial info: your swap time and gas fees. Making the best routing choice has never been simpler. Trade smarter with Rubic!

But that’s not all!

We’ve supercharged the transaction history feature. You can now access an extended list of previous transactions for a comprehensive overview.

What’s more, our on-chain transaction list is now readily available! Stay in the know with Rubic. 🔍

Our user flow is designed for your convenience. Preview swaps & delve into detailed transaction conditions. We’ve put the power in your hands, making cross-chain trading a breeze.

4. Manta To Be Available Via Cross-Chain

We have some exciting developments in the pipeline! In the near future, we’ll finalize the integration of Symbiosis as a provider for the Manta Pacific network. Additionally, we’re expanding our offerings by including OpenOcean as a DEX for on-chain swaps.
