Hitdex - Trade Crypto Across Chains

Project Name: Hitdex

Description / Main Use Case

Hitdex is a decentralized destination for fungible token swapping, digital collectible (NFT) trading, and participating in DeFi on the Polygon PoS and zkEVM blockchains.

Problem Statements

Token Swaps, Bridges & ETH Purchase Availability
There are minimal options for exchanges that offer ETH token swaps and cross-chain swaps (bridge) as an avenue to obtain ETH in the current Polygon and Immutable ecosystems. Simplified access to the ETH is essential for a thriving DeFi and NFT ecosystem and improving user experience.

NFT Marketplace
Finding NFT collectibles, whether old or new, is challenging as the categorization, collection search and filters on available marketplaces aren’t robust enough. Currently, collections & collectibles are segmented without proper categorization by collection type or child categories (Ex: NFT > Sports > Basketball > NBA Top Shot > {Sidebar filters}).

DAO Governance
Most companies operating on Polygon are entirely centralized, and their communities need more say in the direction of the platforms they use.

Evidence For The Need

  • Lack of artists launching collections on the Polygon PoS and zkEVM due to poor discoverability on the currently available marketplaces.
  • Lack of DAO and governance token opportunities for organizations with platforms supporting zkEVMs. There are minimal DAO governance opportunities in the zkEVM ecosystems because DeFi and governance tokens on the zkEVM chains are just beginning to sprout.

Proposed Solutions

  • Token Exchange & Ethereum Fiat On-ramp/Off-ramp: Hitdex will utilize an automated market maker for the token exchange. Our users will trade with a pool of tokens rather than directly with other users. This will create a seamless experience where our users can purchase and sell Ethereum and other altcoins on our platform with little resistance by removing complex order book orders from the equation. Ideally, this implementation will have a fiat debit card payment option via a Coinbase Commerce integration to purchase ETH. We plan to build two swap modules, a Ethereum token swap feature that can execute ETH token swaps and a cross-chain swap module (bridge) that will enable our customers to swap crypto from mainnet and other chains to obtain ETH on one of our supported zkEVMs.

  • NFT Marketplace: Hitdex’s marketplace offers improved discoverability for collectibles on Polygon PoS and zkEVM via a simplified approach to search via a category breakout and project grouping. Users on the Polygon PoS and zkEVM NFT marketplace can search for collectibles via categories such as PFPs, Art, Collectibles, Sports, Gaming, Music, Land, Domains, Trading Cards, Comics & Photography and then search/filter by artist, collection, or collectible attribute. On the Immutable zkEVM our categories will have more of a focus on the gaming ecosystem Immutable supports, so our category breakout there will be Virtual Items, Avatars, Sports, Trading Cards, Virtual Land, MMORPG, FPS, Fighting, Strategy, Adventure & Action.

  • DAO Governance: After the initial platform launch, we will release a token and move toward a governance DAO to be one of the first companies to give our users the ability to collectively steer the platform and protocol in their chosen direction on the Polygon PoS and zkEVM.

Happy weekend everyone!

Just an update on development progress. For the initial release we are focusing on our cross-chain DEX (Token Exchange) launch. Over the past few weeks we’ve been diving into the backend build-out, while also buttoning up the design and mobile responsiveness. After we get through the launch milestone in the next few months, we’ll continue to build and tackle the milestones previously mentioned, including a NFT marketplace and additional DEX features/products.

For the DEX rollout we’ll be launching with cross-chain swaps, transfers and buying/selling crypto on Ethereum (mainnet), Polygon PoS, and Base. For the cross-chain swaps, limit orders (roadmap feature) and transfers, we are integrating a combination of 1inch and DeBridge’s DLN API to pull in quotes and execute all transactions through their aggregation protocols. For crypto purchases and crypto selling, we’ll be utilizing an integration with Transak. For wallet connections we’ve implemented Dynamic wallet and are using their Magic Link integration to create a wallet in the background for users who sign up via email or socials.

Anyways, happy building. :saluting_face:
