Introducing Metric — community-owned dex aggregator

Yesterday, the BUILD Finance has launched the first truly community-owned dex aggregator. The team hasn’t taken a single sat of VC funding. There are no admin keys & no pre-sale.

As a dex aggregator, Metric gives you the best possible rate for every swap by routing your order via multiple decentralized exchanges. This results in a much lower slippage and gives you a better result for your swap. For example, when you want to make a large swap of ETH to USDC, a part of your swap may be filled by Uniswap, another by Mooniswap, and another by Sushiswap. All in a single seamless transaction.

Give it a try now on metric.exchange

Lowest slippage for each order

Each order on Metric is automatically split between multiple exchanges for the optimal execution to get the lowest slippage possible.

Future roadmap

In the future, the plan is to add the following features:

  • Limit orders

  • Use GST2 or CHI token for the gas fee refund during swaps

  • Once widely supported by the ecosystem, integrate L2 (Optimistic Rollups)

  • Plus many smaller UI improvements such as slippage indicators, breakdown of used pools in a swap, etc.

METRIC token

Governance

  • Vote on which tokens should be added to the whitelist

  • Vote on which exchanges should be integrated

Trading fee discount

  • Anyone holding more than 100 METRIC will not be charged a trading fee

Revenue sharing

  • 100% of the trading fees will be distributed to the METRIC holders

Supply

The token has a permanently fixed supply of 1,000,000 METRIC, never to be increased, enforced by a smart contract.

  • 10% will be vested by the METRIC team for a year to incentivize continuous development.

  • 20% will be deposited into the BUILD Finance DAO treasury which is itself community-owned. Metric exchange is a product made by BUILD Finance.

  • 30% will be kept by the METRIC treasury. METRIC holders can decide and vote on how to allocate this later. Possible uses include incentivized use of the exchange, further farming, partner incentives, etc.

  • 40% will be distributed during the liquidity mining program.

A product by BUILD Finance

Metric is the first product released by BUILD Finance — a venture builder DAO working on various different projects. If you want to learn more, check out http://letsbuild.finance/.
