0x blockchain project launches Instant

Recommended Posts

Instant is completely open source, and depending on the requirements of each dApp, it can be customized. Developers that wish to make use of this service in their applications, have the option of earning an affiliate fee of 5% on each transaction performed.

Due to the fact that 0x sees itself as an open trading protocol built on top of the Ethereum blockchain, it shouldn’t be surprising that Instant supports only the buying of ERC-721 and ERC-20 assets. Regardless, assets supported includes popular stablecoins as well as utility tokens like Basic Attention Token (BAT), OmiseGo, Augur, Dai Stablecoin, Funfair and 0x itself.


On the 0x website, a graphical configurator feature is present, which aids developers in customizing according to their requirements. The JavaScript code that results, can then be dropped into a website or App, abstracting away the backend complexities of the underlying library.

0x also supports the use of AssetBuyer (its other library), in a case where the default user interface of Instant becomes too limiting. They said:


If you need more flexibility and want full control over how the UI is designed, use AssetBuyer, the engine that powers Instant. AssetBuyer leverages the new forwarder contract to abstract away the complexities of sourcing orders and performing market buys in the 0x network.


Reducing the entry barrier

0x has revealed that the major use case for the library is to create seamless product experiences, which were impossible to incorporate within a single application. Users of any app, will not need to make use of third party crypto exchanges to obtain a platform-specific token. 0x said that a good number of crypto projects are already making use of Instant.

Two well-known crypto providers already having this service built in are Balance and Coinbase Wallet. With the aid of different ETH wallets, including Ledger, MetaMask and Trezor, users can buy tokens. Also, CoinGecko (a price aggregation service), has also added support for Instant.

The 0x team believes that Instant’s launch will play a major role in reducing the entry barrier for newbies to cryptos and dApps. Will Warren (0x founder), in a discussion with Forbes said:


Ultimately it’s another step towards our mission of allowing all tokenized forms of value to flow freely and removing obstacles for people to access a new global financial system.
