Introducing 0x Instant

via medium

We are excited to announce the release of 0x Instant! With just a few lines of code, you can now add crypto purchasing seamlessly to any app or website. Instant is open-source, fully configurable, and allows hosts to earn affiliate fees on every transaction. Under the hood, Instant aggregates liquidity from 0x relayers for any ERC-20 or ERC-721 asset. It automatically finds the best prices within the 0x networked liquidity pool and lets users pay for tokens with ETH via MetaMask, Ledger, Trezor, or any other Ethereum wallet.

If you need to embed a simple one-click buy interface to sell your in-game NFT or dApp token, getting started is easy with our off-the-shelf UI and the Instant Configurator. Just identify the tokens you support, choose a liquidity source, and select an affiliate fee up to 5% (if any). 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. That means no more wrapping ETH!

Developers and creators can utilize Instant to build product experiences that couldn’t have existed before. 0x Instant is already being hosted by a diverse set of projects including non-fungible token marketplaces, non-custodial crypto wallets, dApps, and even crypto price feeds.

Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs)
Emoon is a decentralized marketplace for ERC-721 assets and a portfolio tracker. They recently migrated to build on 0x and implemented Instant via AssetBuyer to give users access to a wide variety of NFTs ranging from Gods Unchained tournament passes to CryptoStrikers player cards. We look forward to seeing how indie game developers and digital artists creatively use Instant to sell their digital assets.

Crypto Wallets
Coinbase Wallet and Balance have integrated 0x Instant directly into their respective products. Coinbase Wallet is a mobile app and Balance is a web wallet where users can safely access Ethereum-based tokens. Instant provides users with the ability to purchase tokens seamlessly in both applications.

Decentralized applications often need to onboard users by directing them to purchase their usage tokens on 3rd party exchanges. This requires users to deposit ETH, trade for the usage token, and withdraw the proceeds back into their wallet. With 0x Instant, dApp developers can now create a more secure, streamlined experience. Augur has integrated Instant to offer REP, so users can quickly join their network to participate in prediction markets.

Crypto News and Price Feeds
Crypto businesses looking to generate a stream of revenue outside of ads can utilize 0x Instant to earn fees on each transaction within their sites. CoinGecko, the second largest crypto price feed on the web, has added Instant to several coin-specific pages including ZRX, REP, OMG, DAI, MKR, BAT, REQ, and AST. We designed Instant so that any crypto-related startup can build a business by monetizing their viewership.

Launching 0x Instant is an important step towards our mission. It is already redefining how people securely buy and sell crypto assets by enabling a long-tail of applications to easily plug into 0x’s infrastructure. Instant gives more end users access to purchase tokens and increases liquidity in the 0x network, which lowers the barrier for new relayers to join our rapidly growing ecosystem.
