0x API announces support for Arbitrum
0x Labs provides decentralized exchange infrastructure that powers the leading DeFi applications. Swap API allows developers to easily and reliably tap into aggregated, multi-chain DEX liquidity and algorithmically routes orders to deliver the best execution. Today, we are bringing our industry-leading DEX infrastructure to the Arbitrum ecosystem.
Arbitrum, an optimistic rollup chain, aims to increase the throughput of the Ethereum network, increasing scalability and usability by offering low gas fees and uber-fast transactions without sacrificing security. By improving scalability, Arbitrum makes it cheaper and easier for users to transact on top of Ethereum. As of August 30, 2022, gas on Ethereum was more than 14x higher than on Abritrum.
Arbitrum has seen steady growth since it first launched, with a constant rise in the number of unique wallet addresses, total deposits, and total transaction volume. There are a significant number of exciting projects building on Arbitrum, including Multichain, GMX, and Curve. Arbitrum’s mainnet migration to Nitro also brings a significant technical upgrade to the network and we look forward to seeing even more developers building on Arbitrum.
Arbitrum Nitro offers:
- Advanced call data compression driving down costs of transactions
- Ethereum gas compatibility
- Geth tracing
- More L1 interoperability
0x Labs is committed to supporting the growth and adoption of Arbitrum, making it easier for developers to build dapps. Arbitrum’s solution in combination with 0x API will make DeFi apps more accessible and affordable to use.
"We’re thrilled to be working with the Offchain Labs team to support Arbitrum builders. Arbitrum is accelerating the growth of the Web3 ecosystem and we look forward to helping them scale."
- Fulvia Morales, Director of Product at 0x Labs
"We’re excited to see 0x, a leader in decentralized exchange, add support for Arbitrum One. 0x’s robust DEX network and exceptional performance will be a great benefit to Arbitrum users."
- A.J. Warner, Chief Strategy Officer at Offchain Labs

Start building with 0x API on Arbitrum
We are proud to be launching support for 0x API on Arbitrum alongside our initial partners Matcha, Brave, DeFi Saver, DexKit, DODO, Frontier, Nested, Tally, Zapper, and Zerion. We expect many more integrations to follow in the coming weeks.
If you are familiar with 0x API /swap on Ethereum, BSC, Polygon, Avalanche, Fantom, Celo or Optimism, you will notice the integration process is very similar. Here’s an example price request to buy DAI with WETH. Developers can check out our documentation on the 0x.org website.
