With the new 1INCH token, 1inch Network will now be governed by a DAO.

The independent board of the 1inch Foundation has released 1INCH, a governance and utility token. The 1inch Foundation intends to support the adoption of the 1INCH token via the permissionless and decentralized 1inch Network.

The 1INCH token will be used to govern all 1inch Network protocols, taking governance in the DeFi space to a new level.

Pioneering governance solution

DeFi is a rapidly evolving space, but most governance models are not designed to adopt protocol changes quickly to respond to the rapidly evolving market. To remedy this, 1inch Network is launching with “instant governance”, a new feature that allows the community to vote for specific protocol settings under the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) model, in a transparent, user-friendly and efficient way. …

As the DeFi space is booming, more and more newcomers are taking a stab at crypto trading . 1inch is a perfect place to start off in the crypto industry for those who have little or no experience with cryptocurrency.

As the leading aggregator of decentralized exchanges (DEXs), 1inch offers users better rates for cryptocurrency swaps than any single crypto exchange could. Moreover, 1inch saves users time — as they no longer have to manually check each exchange for the best swap prices.

In this post, we’ll provide a step-by-step guide on how to trade on 1inch, which should come especially handy for newcomers. …

Introducing the first round of winning hacks on 1inch, we are looking back at 1inch’s inspirational journey, which started with an ETHGlobal hackathon.

Back during the dark depths of crypto winter, two smart white-hat hackers, Anton and Sergej, started attending the fun, productive ETHGlobal hackathons in order to dive further into Ethereum. They started with ETH Singapore in December 2018. Six months later, they came to ETH NYC where the idea of 1inch was born. The 1inch MVP did not win the hackathon — or even a sponsor prize. …
