Deep Insights 01:Brief Introduction to HurricaneSwap

2 min readAug 6, 2021

Since the beginning of 2021, all public chains have developed so rapidly in terms of market value, activity and ecosystem development. And the demand for cross-chain transactions is becoming stronger and stronger. To get rid of the complex and expensive cross-chain operations, some cross-chain DEXs have gradually appeared.

Meanwhile, there is still no good application for cross-chain trading on Avalanche. To fill the vacancy, HurricaneSwap proposed a more advanced LP cross-chain mechanism which is more efficient, safer and cheaper than those of other single-token cross-chain DEXs.

Most current cross-chain mechanisms just mint the tokens of other chains on their own chains, while LP cross-chain directly moves liquidity from other chains to Avalanche, providing a better trading depth. Since the liquidity has been bridged, users will almost feel the same as trading assets of Avalanche when trading cross-chain assets. With the high-performance support of Avalanche, the whole process of cross-chain transactions only takes a few seconds and has only 2 steps for users while HurricaneSwap will complete the rest.

To secure the cross-chain token, ensure the consistency of prices and optimize user experience, HurricaneSwap designed the Roke Protocol, HurricaneStation and HurricaneAlliance, which will be explained in detail later.

It is a great honor that HurricaneSwap, as the first cross-chain DEX on Avalanche, has received investment and various support from AVATAR (the Avalanche Foundation). We will be rooted in the Avalanche ecosystem and grow together with Avalanche.
