episode 386: Sergej Kunz: 1inch – The DEX Aggregator

1inch Exchange is a DEX aggregator routing cryptocurrency purchases through different DEXs to reduce slippage and get a better conversion rate for the user compared with just using a single DEX. The platform launched its governance token, 1INCH, in December 2020.

We were joined by Co-founder of 1inch Sergej Kunz to chat about how 1inch works, how the 1INCH token provides liquidity to their liquidity platform, its integration with platforms such as Uniswap, and the roadmap from here.

  • Sergej's background and how he got into blockchain
  • How slippage is used in the 1inch protocol
  • The liquidity protocol used
