Bringing you the cheapest trades across all of DeFi

Unlike exchanges that utilize a limited number of liquidity sources, Zerion aggregates prices across all major DEX aggregators and liquidity sources, thereby giving you the best rates.

Zerion also includes Multichain support for 10+ networks including Solana, Polygon, Avalanche, Arbitrum, Binance Smart Chain, Optimism, Gnosis Chain and others.

How it works

Zerion lets you buy and sell DeFi tokens (& liquidity pools) in a single transaction. On the backend, our execution engine will find the cheapest and fastest route for your trade. This process is powered by DeFi SDK, a library of smart contracts that acts as a universal adapter for every DeFi protocol.

Example #1: When investing in vaults through Zerion, we'll automatically route you between buying yTokens on Uniswap or minting them — whichever works out cheaper.

Example #2: You no longer need to hold all of the underlying tokens in a liquidity pool to become a liquidity provider. Zerion lets you buy LP tokens for Uniswap, Curve, Balancer and Sushi in a single-asset trade.

Liquidity sources

Zerion sources liquidity from every major decentralized exchange (DEX), DEX aggregator, and automated market maker (AMM), including:

  • Uniswap

  • Balancer

  • Curve

  • 1inch

  • 0x

  • DODO

  • Sushi

  • and so much more

We do charge a 0.5% fee on trades. These fees go straight to "treasury-like" multisigs, where they will stay safe and secure until we come up with a way to involve the community in managing Zerion’s future.

Wallets that hold a Zerion Genesis NFT are exempt from paying these fees for extended periods of time.
