Decentralized exchange aggregator trading volumes surge to new highs

Trading volumes on popular decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregators have surged to new highs over the past few weeks.

Decentralized exchange aggregators provide a way for token traders and swappers to scan several DEX platforms to get the best swap rates at the time.

According to Dune analytics, popular DEX aggregators such as 1inch, 0x, and Paraswap have seen volumes surging over the past month. The combined volume for those three hit a cumulative weekly all-time high of $6 billion last week, increasing by around 50% since the beginning of November.

1inch has a minor lead in terms of the current market share at 53%, but 0x is rapidly catching up with 42% recorded for December so far. Last week, 1inch announced a Series B funding round led by Amber Group that raised $175 million.

On Dec. 5, 0x actually surpassed 1inch in terms of daily volume share with 49% compared to 43.7% according to Dune. According to 0xTracker, the DEX aggregator has processed $3 billion in volume over the past 7 days.

0x provides an application programming interface (API) that can be used by DeFi developers to integrate token swaps sourced from leading DEXes directly into smart contracts.

The 0x protocol also has a native DEX called Matcha which has processed $4.7 billion in trade volume over the past 30 days as reported by its dashboard.
