The new 1inch Limit Order Protocol offers users extensive flexibility while reducing the trade execution costs as well as execution time considerably.
Distributed decentralized network 1inch has unveiled its new innovative protocol dubbed 1inch Limit Order Protocol. It will be available on different blockchain networks like Polygon, Ethereum, and Binance Smart Chain.
Besides, it will also support other chains connected to the 1inch network. The 1inch Limit Order features allow users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies at a specific price. The new limit order protocol from 1inch gives users a higher level of flexibility and efficiency. The chances of users seeing their orders executed on time have significantly increased. At the same time, the execution time has substantially dropped.
This feature is also available in the 1inch DApp for some time, however, it was previously hosted on the 0x protocol. The distributed network says that the new protocol is much more efficient than 0x. Besides, unlike 0x and other legacy protocols, the 1inch Limit order charges no protocol fees. Also, the 1inch Limit Order Protocol is much more gas efficient.
Besides, the absence of fees is a welcome move for users placing small limit orders. Previously, the user with small limit order has to wait until the fee prices come down. Now the waiting period has come down significantly.
Some of the existing token standards supported by 1inch include ERC20/BEP20, ERC 721, and ERC1155. Besides, it also aims to support other token standards using its external extension.
1inch Limit Order Protocol: Dynamic Pricing and Conditional Execution
These are the two big features of the 1inch Limit Order Protocol which bring unmatched flexibility to its users. The dynamic price facilitates a customer price function on separate smart contracts. This is based on different properties which users find relevant such as oracles, supply and demand, etc.
On the other hand, conditional execution allows users to specify arbitrary conditions for order execution. This allows maximizing the earnings on different trading operations.
Besides, the protocol also enables the fulfillment of requests for quotations (RFQs). Thus, the buy and sell orders for the specific amount of cryptocurrencies are optimized for market makers.
Just like higher flexibility, its features translate into different use cases. This includes stop-loss and trailing stop orders. Explaining additional broader functionalities, 1inch notes:
Due to the dynamic pricing feature, the protocol can be used to power auctions. For instance, Maker DAO’s Liquidation 2.0 Module is based on the auction model, and users could take part in Maker DAO auctions, using the 1inch Limit Order Protocol.
Similarly, on top of the protocol, complex, customized market making tools could be built. For example, a tool of that kind would facilitate earning on a pair of assets pegged to the same currency, like USDC and DAI, which are both pegged to the US dollar”.
1inch says that security remains one of its most important concerns and thus the newly launched protocol has been thoroughly audited.
