DeFi Trading Platform Hashflow Introduces Bridgeless Cross-Chain Swaps

Decentralized finance (DeFi) trading platform Hashflow (HFT) is  introducing a new feature to enable bridgeless cross-chain swaps, the company announced Wednesday

Hashflow’s trading platform uses a request-for-quote (RFQ) model, where professional market makers set token prices.

Unlike Hashflow, most prominent DeFi trading platforms use automated market makers (AMMs) to facilitate trades, but larger AMM trades can lead to high slippage – which is when the price of a token changes while a swap is in progress.

With Hashflow, “you're basically requesting a quote from someone who has done price discovery off-chain, so as a result, you're able to essentially get better prices,” Hashflow founder Varun Kumar told CoinDesk.

Hashflow will enable native-to-native swaps, meaning users must not rely on problem-prone cross-chain bridges and won’t receive “wrapped” versions of tokens when they swap across chains.

Hashflow’s cross-chain trading feature is currently in Alpha mode and will support swaps between Ethereum, Avalanche, BNB Chain, Arbitrum, and Polygon at launch.
