Crypto exchange OKX has enhanced its decentralised exchange (DEX) offerings by integrating Uniswap Labs' application programming interface (API), rolling out a feature named “Snap” designed for gas-free trading.

This strategic move aims to streamline trading processes on the DEX by linking with Uniswap's liquidity and the UniswapX protocol, enhancing the overall trading experience.

OKX’s Chief Innovation Officer, Jason Lau, shared insights with Cointelegraph on how "Snap" is set to simplify decentralised token swapping, making it more accessible and cost-effective for users.

According to Lau, one of the standout benefits of this new feature is its ability to tackle several prevalent issues in decentralised finance (DeFi), such as slippage, Miner Extractable Value (MEV) attacks, and failed transactions, which often deter users from engaging in DeFi activities.

This innovative approach by OKX aims to significantly enhance user experience in DeFi by making transactions more reliable and cost-effective.
