Introduction of OpenOcean

What is OpenOcean?

OpenOcean is the world's first full aggregation protocol for crypto trading that source liquidity from DeFi and CeFi, and enable cross-chain swaps. Our intelligent routing algorithm find the best prices from DEXes and CEXes, and split the routes to provide traders the best prices with low slippage and fast settlement. The function is free to use, OpenOcean users only need to pay the normal blockchain gas fees and exchange fees for the trades, which are charged by the exchanges and not OpenOcean.

OpenOcean aggregates major exchanges (DEXes and CEXes) and across Ethereum, Ethereum Layer 2 such as Loopring and Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Solana, HECO, Ontology, TRON, and is the first full aggregator on Binance Smart Chain, TRON, Ethereum Layer 2, and Binance exchange. We continue to aggregate public chains and exchanges based on the voice of the community.

Besides aggregation of swaps, OpenOcean will continue to aggregate derivative, yield, lending and insurance products, and launch it's own combined margin products and intelligent wealth management service. OpenOcean provides API and arbitrage tools for users to operate automated arbitrage strategies.

The vision is to build a full aggregator for crypto trading that increase capital efficiency and serves as a bridge connecting the isolated islands in the current fragmented DeFi and CeFi markets. Regardless of being small individual investor or large institution, everyone should have the opportunity to trade at the best prices and apply own investment strategies on various crypto asset classes.

OpenOcean has its own token, OOE, that serves utility and governance.

What is full aggregator?

Full aggregation means one-stop services that search DeFi and CeFi to find and optimize the best trading options for all types of crypto assets, across DEXes and CEXes, on verious public blockchains.

Cross-chain support

OpenOcean supports cross-chain swaps between the aggregated public chains via cross-chain protocols, and will support direct cross-chain transactions once the infrastructure is mature.

Connecting DeFi and CeFi through CeFi trading aggregation

We are continously aggregating value adding exchanges and users with large orders will automatically optimize the best route between markets in order to execute transactions at the best price both via DEXes and CEXes.

Derivatives, lending, and insurance products aggregation

Based on user needs the protocol will expand product scope into derivatives, both from DeFi and CeFi. For the aggregation of derivatives, we will achieve deep aggregation through portfolio margin. OpenOcean users can trade both long and short on multiple exchanges simultaneously with combined cross margins from both DEXes and CEXes.

In addition, OpenOcean will also aggregate lending and insurance products, as well as provide intelligent investment services to help users participate in the DeFi & CeFi ecosystem and automate their asset management process.

Full user coverage

OpenOcean will support not only DeFi users, but also CeFi users. Support is not only for novice traders but also for professional traders. The existing interface is user-friendly and completely free for users. For funds and professional traders, OpenOcean provides an API interface and customized trading interface services to assist investment institutions in developing trading strategies such as quantitative arbitrage.
