A Comprehensive Case Study

About Zeroswap

ZeroSwap is a multi-chain compatible decentralized exchange aggregator focused on making zero-fee transactions possible. Their aim is to make on-chain trading simple and easy by providing access to multiple chains and DEXes under one roof, with zero gas fees.

Unmarshal Leverages Gamification Model to Draw more Users onto DEX

In order to encourage increased trading activity on their DEX, Zeroswap decided to introduce the element of gamification. A P2E Trading platform was implemented where users would be incentivized for trading higher volumes of selected token pairs.

To help bring this to fruition, Unmarshal had to consider two things:

  1. A leaderboard with details such as wallet address of top traders, volume they’ve traded, number of trades made, and rewards accumulated was needed.
  2. At the backend, Zeroswap required a dashboard where they could monitor the impact of P2E on the volume.

Unmarshal’s Solution Using Parser Tech

For the leaderboard which is displayed to traders and used to monitor key metrics, Unmarshal built custom GraphQL APIs to fetch the required data. Unmarshal works closely with all its partners and anytime highly specific smart contract data is requested, we deliver with minimum turnaround time! And since Zeroswap’s DEX contract is deployed on a number of chains such as Avalanche, Binance Smart Chain, and Polygon, it made sense to use Unmarshal’s multi-chain data infrastructure.

Here’s how it looks:

Unmarshal Parser is a powerful tool for auto-indexing smart contracts. You just need to enter Zeroswap’s DEX contracts across chains and the Parser will automatically sync the necessary events and function data. This data is accessed through Metabase, allowing us to build visual dashboards to represent it. The Parser tool drastically reduced Zeroswap’s development time and efforts that would have otherwise been spent on not only creating dashboards, but also developing an indexer.

Increase in Trading Volume on DEX and Spike in Number of Unique Users

The P2E platform was implemented in May 2022. Zeroswap recorded a total trading volume of $5.5 Million on their DEX and 713 unique users.

This was up from $1.7 Million and 209 users in just the previous month.

In addition, we estimate that the development time saved by choosing Unmarshal as a one-stop solution is as below:

  • Dashboard building time: 336 hours saved
  • API building time: 168 hours saved
  • Indexer development time: 336 hours saved
