๐ŸŒ Network Insights

With increased volatility across the cryptocurrency market, trading volume across 0x Protocol in May rocketed to almost ~3X the volume seen in April, with a total of ~$17.8B in trading volume across Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain.

In April, 0x API launched on Polygon. Users can now trade with much lower transaction costs through different applications integrated with 0x API on Polygon, including DexGuru, Zapper and Matcha. By the end of June, the number of trades filled on Polygon caught up with the number of trades on Ethereum, with total trades topping 390k on each chain for the month.

Over the past two months, weโ€™ve seen steady growth in active trader count across all 0x-supported chains. With the expansion to Polygon, the total number of monthly active users on 0x Protocol surged from just over 72k in April to more than 194k in June.

User behavior, however, differs from chain to chain: the average trade size on Ethereum over the past six months has hovered around $15k, with a peak of $48.9k in May, while the average trade size per fill on Polygon and BSC has ranged from $1k to $4k.

Breaking it down by 0x API integrators, Matcha and DeFi Saver have been leading the pack for the past two months in terms of volume across chains. DeFi Saver is dedicated to managing usersโ€™ leverage and protecting positions from liquidations, which played a crucial role during the extreme market volatility traders experienced in May.
