@everyone Last night, SafeTrade opened both USDT and DAI stable coin trading pairs for VRSC, making it even easier to go from USD to Verus and back. In fact, it is now possible to use Verus Mobile to wire from your bank account to your wallet, and with SafeTrade alone, go from there to Verus, no other exchange or even BTC is needed. Since these pairs were just opened last night and announced today with no artificial liquidity, there is a tiny bit of ask volume and no-bid volume to speak of yet. Hopefully, our community can help with that and also spread the word. If you're looking to purchase VRSC, please consider spreading your orders between BTC and stable coins to get better overall results and help provide market liquidity at the same time. Thank you!

Today we are using the Kyber Swap website to exchange some ETH to BAT using the built in crypto wallet of the Opera Touch browser on iPad. The Opera browser provides seamless integration between tokens and the browsing experience. Using crypto is easier than sending an email, and swapping between tokens using the Kyber Network liquidity is nearly instant.

The only recommendation we can make is to reduce the gas fee so it costs less to exchange.

Reduce gas fees options for Kyber Swap

For this guide, we left the gas fee as the default setting of fast.

 

What is Kyber Swap

Kyber Swap is part of the Kyber Network suite of integrations enabled by their unique approach to providing liquidity to traders. The short explanation of what Kyber provides is application developers have a choice of what kind of liquidity pool they can integrate with to give their users the best user experience for trading tokens.

Kyber Swap is an instant exchange using smart contracts to facilitate quick trades on the Ethereum network.

Now, let’s walk through BAT/ETH trade on our iPad using Opera Touch.

Select Tokens To Trade

After allowing the browser’s built in crypto wallet to be used on the exchange, its as simple as selecting the tokens to use for trade, pressing the swap now button & confirming to proceed with the order.

For beginners it is suggested that you should use Widgets under the tools menu on the left navigation bar of the screen the screen will pop up like this and it will allow you to select your currency conversion widget,

(The only crypto currency supported for now is Bitcoin as in free version but any FIAT currency can be used to convert to)

To add this API to your website enter the domain generate App ID and then copy either the JavaScript code or the IFRAME which is an html tag to display an in line or in page section from another source you can add as much as currencies you want to convert into and show the current market rates.

Today we will review 0x protocol. it is a protocol and tool for building DEX platforms on top of the Ethereum blockchain allowing peer-to-peer exchange. 0x allows the exchange of assets, crypto-currencies, and much more, 0x is not a decentralized exchange but a protocol followed by DEX.

It has got multiple DEX which is called relays under the 0x platform, these DEX allows trading from ETH to other crypto-currencies and assets, the token used by 0x is ZRX and it believes everything in the future is a token.

0x is a trading protocol powering several ETH DEX products

0x is really advanced trading protocol and its most relays are really hard to understand and trade on but there are few steps before trading on 0x, which includes setting up wallet, wrapping ETH, unlocking XRX etc, upon the trade page we can view the screen like this.

MetaMask is a browser based wallet used to store ETH and ERC20 tokens, read our review on what and how to set up, MetaMask

Install MetaMask from the chrome web store and make sure you have some tokens in your Metamask wallet. Once you have MetaMask installed refresh the page and a confirmation page might appear.

Connect MetaMask with 0x
After being connected the page might look like this. Click on the Menu bar to add more ERC20 tokens.

ERC20 tokens built on the ETH blockchain can be added as well, to trade on 0x. You might need to wrap your ETH into WETH which means wrapped ethereum, this token is used for trading on relayers, just simply click on the wrap ETH enter the amount and wrap ETH, it usually approves in seconds, and the same process can be followed to unwrap ETH.

Wrapped ETH is also an ERC20 token used only for trading that stays in the wallet back and forth when trading.

Unlock the ZXR and you are good to trade on 0x, now what relay should you choose to trade? the answer is you can use any relay they all are DEX and built on the same blockchain but these relays are really advanced and might not be suitable for you if you are new into trading, the first three relays might not be suitable as ERCDEX is under development, TOKENJAR and ETHFINEX, might not have a suitable UI for new comers.

ETHFINEX

Metamask will require connection to ETHFINEX when you open it, connect the wallet to start trading

TokenJar

StarBit DEX

StarBit DEX has a catchy and friendly UI

Building On 0x Relay Technology

0x also allows you to built your own relay/exchange following the protocol and get added in it’s relays, which are built on the 0x platform by different group of developers or companies, 0x is built on javascript & typescript, which are really popular programming language nowadays, allowing developers to build apps, micro services, web applications, amazon web services and even 0x and ETH have some involvement of JS in it, if you are a developer the documentation on 0x really helps you to build your own relay and how you can add unlimited seamless exchange of assets and coins, network liquidity, making and taking orders, this is indeed a good option for developers check it out.

There is not much security associated to talk about on 0x as different relays have different kind of security and privacy options but all of the relays associated with 0x are decentralized and have good liquidity for making exchanges.
