What started as an ambitious plan in 2018 to decentralize CEX liquidity became a mission to create the first decentralized portal to the crypto market: Orion Terminal. As of March 31st at 5pm UTC, Orion Terminal will be available for anyone to use.
Instead of competing with exchanges, we aggregate their order book depth, trading pairs, and liquidity into one decentralized platform. Connect your wallet and trade across major exchanges like Binance, KuCoin, AscendEX, and more, without the need for any accounts or KYC.
In time, Orion Terminal will aggregate every CEX, DEX, and swap pool in market.
Orion Terminal is chain-agnostic.
As a decentralized gateway to the digital asset market, Orion Protocol has, and always will be, chain-agnostic. While many multi-chain aggregators require end-users to select the separate chains and trade on the tokens available on that chain, the multiple chains integrated into Orion Terminal remain in the back-end for a seamless user experience. Upon launch, Orion Terminal will be on Ethereum and Binance, with more chains to be announced imminently.
Orion Terminal launched phase one of Main Net on the Ethereum blockchain. Since then, Orion has integrated and is in the process of integrating other chains compatible with the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) for scalability, accessibility, and interoperability across multiple chains.
Orion’s expansion to BSC promises to halve wait times for off-chain order execution and on-chain order settlement. Transactions on BSC can cost 135x less than they currently cost on Ethereum, making commissions for deposits, withdrawals, order execution, etc. on the terminal negligible.
Orion’s integration of Avalanche will significantly increase performance, reliability, and security across its Terminal to provide the best possible user experience for traders. The integration will also enable Orion Terminal users to tap into the growing roster of dApps and new financial primitives on Avalanche.
The Elrond blockchain can process more than 100,000 transactions per second, with a 5 second latency, with almost 100x less transaction cost than the Ethereum network. Elrond’s high throughput characteristics combined with Orion’s high-performance matching engine is the perfect combination of technologies.
The implementation of HECO chain into Orion Terminal will bring high performance, low gas fees, and enhanced cross-chain user experience to Orion Terminal. For Orion Terminal users, this will result in low transaction costs, low transaction delay, high transaction concurrency, and cross-chain asset transfers.
Orion’s Protocol integration with Polkadot via Moonbeam gives them immediate access to the many integrations already integrated, including projects in the DeFi and NFT space, while opening the doors for Orion to access other assets on Polkadot’s fast-paced, growing ecosystem.
Orion's partnership with IOHK means Orion becomes the first liquidity aggregator to the Cardano blockchain. Integrating Cardano blockchain’s infrastructure will play a significant role in enabling far greater interoperability, scalability, and performance of the protocol and each solution - from flagship product Orion Terminal to Orion NFT Aggregator.
Fantom is a fast, high-throughput open-source smart contract platform for digital assets and dApps, while Fantom’s aBFT consensus protocol delivers unparalleled speed, security, and reliability. Integrating Fantom into the protocol enables almost instant transfers and extremely low fees:
Not your keys, not your coins.
Trade securely across the crypto market without ever giving up your private keys. MetaMask, Fortmatic, and Coinbase wallets are currently integrated into the terminal, with other popular wallets soon to be integrated.
Simply connect your wallet, deposit funds into the smart contract, and trade securely without risking your assets - even across exchanges you don't have accounts with.
The only terminal you'll ever need.
We're constantly building. Through partnerships and internal development, Orion Terminal will become your portal to the crypto landscape.
Stake on Orion Protocol.
Offering stakers high rewards is of utmost importance to us. Staking rewards are generated through volume from Orion Terminal, combined with the volume from all other DeFi products. As such, the team are prioritizing the development of several key B2B solutions ahead of schedule to ensure significant volume on staking launch, including Orion Liquidity Boost Plugin, Orion Launchpad Liquidity, and Orion DEX Kit. Each new partner for these solutions brings additional volume to the protocol, increasing Daily Protocol Volume and therefore staking rewards. We have amassed over 40 partners so far, and we will continue to add to our ever-growing ecosystem. All of this is to ensure maximum rewards for our stakers.
Orion's Main Net Staking is currently in final testing and will be live in Q2. In the meantime, explore your potential staking rewards below.
