% change = since Ecosystem Update #13 [May / June 2021]

Trading volume across 0x Protocol over the past 2 months was ~$16B, with a consistent uptrend on Polygon and Binance Smart Chain. Polygon’s share of volume on 0x Protocol grew to 12% in August.

We’ve continued to see steady growth in active trader count across all 0x-supported chains over the past two months. Polygon’s growth slowed in August, while the number of traders on BSC jumped ~240%. User growth on BSC can be attributed mostly to Metamask, with ~10k active daily traders on BSC.

Over the same time period, the average trade size on Polygon increased from ~$700+ per trade to ~$1.1k, while the average trade size on BSC remained steady. The average trade size on Ethereum dipped slightly in July from June, but then trended up on a weekly basis throughout August, which is in line with the trend we’ve seen with Ethereum gas prices over the past month due to the red hot NFT market.

Across integrators, Matcha is leading the board with a total of $4.7B in volume over the last 2 months. New integrations include Cowswap and Coinbase Wallet, both of which became top volume channels soon after onboarding to 0x API. In terms of volume across chains, ~24% of volume on Zapper has come from Polygon, while over half of the volume on DODO has come from Binance Smart Chain. BSC accounts for ~22% of volume on Metamask as well.

🔦 Ecosystem Spotlights

Our 0x Ecosystem Spotlight series is where we highlight some of the exciting and novel projects built on 0x. Our second spotlight is DeFi Saver!

DeFi Saver is a one-stop dashboard for creating, managing, and tracking DeFi positions. We talked to community lead Nikola to dive deeper into what sets DeFi Saver apart from other management apps, why they chose to integrate 0x API, and what’s next for the project.

📰 Read our interview with DeFi Saver

Following on the heels of DeFi Saver, we also chatted with DODO, an on-chain decentralized exchange that leverages 0x API to provide traders with the best prices, about the importance of multi-chain development and what they are currently working on.
