Development

  1. New Design Update

This week, our dedicated development team has integrated the latest updates into the new UI, ensuring a seamless user experience and incorporating enhancements from the old UI. Among other updates, we have successfully integrated cross-chain swaps for the Manta Pacific network into the new UI.

Our upcoming plans include the release of cross-chain swaps for non-EVM networks through ChangeNOW later this week.

To enhance transparency, we are making transaction cost details for both on-chain and cross-chain swaps clearly seen directly in the new UI.

It’s essential to note that starting next week, the new UI will become the default option, offering an improved interface and enhanced functionalities. Users will be able to conveniently access it at https://app.rubic.exchange/.

Thank you for your continued support as we strive to elevate your experience while using Rubic.

2. Symbiosis — New Cross Chain Provider For TRON

Currently, we are in the process of integrating Symbiosis as a provider for cross-chain swaps from the TRON network. This integration aims to broaden users’ choices for swaps and enhance the overall cross-chain transaction experience.

3. Manta Pacific is Available For Cross-Chain

We’ve completed 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.

In addition, we’ve added Rubic’s contract to the Manta network, further enhancing our cross-chain capabilities and providing even more options for our users. Stay tuned for these exciting updates!

With $23M+ in TVL, 1.77M+ txns, & 147K+ active wallet addresses, Manta is pioneering the enhancement of ZK-rollups.

4. PulseChain Update

This week, we are taking up the integration of the native Bridge to the PulseChain network. This integration will improve the cross-chain solution for Pulsechain on our App.

5. Swap To Earn Rules Update

Based on the changes to our token price, we’ve recently updated our SwapToEarn rules!

We’ve also expanded the list of eligible networks to Scroll, Mantle, Base, zkSync, Linea, Polygon zkEVM, Aurora, & Pulsechain.
