At Bitpanda, we just love fierce-looking unicorns that point traders which direction to head in - much like the unicorn 1inch uses. However, it’s not just fans of DeFi who will be happy that Bitpanda has just listed 1INCH, the token behind decentralised finance aggregator 1inch, and to boot, we are topping it off for you with our 1INCH trading competition where you can win great prizes.

Update (the 29th of June 2021): Thank you for participating and congratulations to the lucky winners. All prizes have been paid out.

The fierce unicorn

Where did it come from? For a hackathon in the lead up to the important ETHGlobalNY2019, a logo was needed for each team. So Sergej Kunz and Anton Bukov, co-founders of the 1inch network, decided to get a logo of a crazy unicorn for their ‘CryptoManiacs’ team just to joke around a bit with the Uniswap logo. Later, this crazy and fierce unicorn became both the 1inch logo and the team’s mascot.

What is the 1inch network?

Initially, the 1inch network was launched as a DEX aggregator solution for finding great deals across multiple platforms. This means that 1inch, like a search engine, will compare trading pairs across exchanges to find the most favourable position for you to avoid unnecessary slippage. Slippage is the difference between the price you expect to trade at and the actual price at which a trade is executed.

There are five distinct yet interconnected components to the 1inch Network: the 1inch Aggregation Protocol, the 1inch Liquidity Protocol, the 1inch DAO, 1inch Labs and the 1inch Foundation.

The native token of the 1inch network is 1INCH and can be used for governance procedures such as voting on projects. Users can also provide liquidity to the pools and earn rewards in the process. In addition, the network adds utility tokens from other projects to incentivise users. You can find out more about the different features of the 1inch network here.

The 1inch network runs on both the Ethereum chain and the Binance Smart Chain and just recently passed USD 30b in trading volume.
