"1inch is a decentralized exchange aggregator. This means that when you go to swap one token for another on the platform, 1inch looks at a host of DEX’s (decentralized exchanges) and sends your order to the one that provides the best price. Check out Colin Platt’s review on Decrypt."


"Launched by software engineers from Porsche and NEAR Protocol. The platform was launched at the ETHGlobal hackathon last year as a liquidity aggregator connecting multiple decentralized exchanges (DEXs)."

Audits & Exploits

  • There is evidence of a 1inch bug bounty program, but no details regarding the potential rewards offered to participating users (22-9-2021).
  • Scored 85% on DeFi Safety (22-9-2021):

"There have been multiple audits performed on the 1inch contracts before and after their various deployments (v1-v3). The full list of audits can be found here."

With the comment: "1inch has been updated to an 85%! this is an impressive improvement from our last review on @1inch. Impressive team transparency, documentation, testing and access controls."

  • Previously, 1inch scored a 31% (28-1-2021); "There have been 8 audits preformed on 1inch exchange. However, there are no published contract addresses, and therefore verification of the validity of any of these audits becomes impossible. This therefore makes the score 0%" with the comment: "No smart contract addresses. This means their 8 audits count for nothing.  It is not difficult. Virtually no testing either, but good docs."



"The community will determine protocol fees and the distribution of rewards. There will be two types of governance: pool governance and factory governance.

Pool governance will include the configuration of parameters that are specific to each pool, such as the swap fee, the price impact fee and the decay period.

Factory governance is responsible for parameters shared by all pools, such as the default swap fee, the default price impact fee, the default decay period, the referral reward and the governance reward."

"In addition to voting on general governance proposals, 1INCH holders can exercise Instant Governance by voting directly and continuously on key protocol parameters. For example, 1INCH holders can vote on the distribution of Spread Surplus (i.e. positive slippage) collected by the 1inch Aggregator and Liquidity Protocol. The voting periods are permanently open, meaning a user can stake their token and vote on a parameter to x value one day, and change their vote to y value if their changes based on new information."

Admin Keys

"1inch admin access control information can easily be found at the bottom of the governance section of their website. The contracts are immutable. No Pause Guardian or similar function was found in the 1inch documentation. However the contracts have pause capability."


  • From their blog (13-4-2021):

"During the first phase, the 1inch Foundation distributes the 1INCH tokens to community members through incentivization activities in accordance with a lockup release schedule. The goal of this phase is to build a core community that will implement DAO-based governance in an efficient way.

At this stage, instant governance is available, which is a feature that enables 1INCH token stakers to conveniently participate in, benefit from, and vote for various protocol settings, avoiding lengthy voting periods.

At the second phase, scheduled to start in early 2022, the 1inch Foundation will introduce a full-fledged DAO functionality, providing 1INCH stakers with access to extended governance mechanisms in a bid to completely decentralize the 1inch network that will eventually be owned by the community.

“We are deliberately waiting for about a year before introducing the second phase of DAO governance,” says Sergej Kunz, 1inch Network co-founder. “If we had done it earlier, the DAO would be controlled by a narrow group of individuals. But our aim is true decentralization and we want governance to be totally inclusive.”"




"1inch is facing backlash from the community regarding its 1INCH token distribution.

Liquidity providers to 1inch’s new automated market maker DEX Mooniswap will earn one-year locked tokens for adding liquidity to any of these pairs before the token launch. The token’s launch date hasn’t been set yet."

Token allocation

  • From their blog (21-8-2020):

"A max vesting time of 1INCH distribution is four years. Over the course of this time, the distribution mechanism will be the following:

  1. 30% for security of the network and maintenance of its functionality with 4 year vesting;
  2. 22.5% for the 1inch core team and future employees with 4 year vesting;
  3. 21% for ecosystem growth (yield farming, community building, research, etc.) with 4 year vesting;
  4. 19.5% to investors and shareholders with 2,5 year vesting;
  5. 5% to advisors with 4 year vesting;
  6. 2% to early Mooniswap liquidity providers with 1 year vesting."
  • From The Defiant (24-8-2020):

"Detailed in the announcement post, 1INCH will distribute 2% of tokens to early Mooniswap liquidity providers and 21% to ecosystem growth. This is just 0.5% more than the core team (22.5%) and 3% more than investors (19.5%)."


  • From their blog (21-8-2020):

"The 1INCH token is a utility token that serves several network needs:

  1. to ensure a permissionless fashion of interaction with the protocols;
  2. to secure funds for further ecosystem development;
  3. to incentivize participation in potential governance of specific network functionalities;
  4. to stake for the network security."
  • From The Defiant (24-8-2020):

"Touting itself as “the system (which) will mark the most efficient and benevolent structure to ever hit the market”  the 1inch team is scrambling to emphasize 1INCH is much more than just a worthless governance token, hence the conservative distribution. Still, they haven’t clarified exactly what the token’s utility will be other than saying “it is gonna be huge.”"

"The key feature of the 1inch Liquidity Protocol version 2 is the price impact fee. This is a fee that grows with price slippage to ensure that liquidity providers and 1INCH token stakers earn significantly more on volatility.

Users who stake their 1INCH tokens, as well as liquidity providers in the 1inch Liquidity Protocol can vote directly on major protocol parameters: the price impact fee, the swap fee, the governance reward, the referral reward, and the decay period."

Token Details



"The ICHI Community has launched one1INCH, a stablecoin for the 1inch community. one1INCH will provide a stablecoin for the community that can be used to create USD exposure during 1inch operations, help diversify the 1INCH at 1inch Foundation treasury that is the part of 1inch Network DAO, more easily pay operating costs, provide liquidity, and earn rewards."

How it works

"1inch is similar to the 0x API in its overall aim of bridging multiple DEX venues but uses a combination of centralised off-chain order book swaps and on-chain swaps that is facilitated by OneSplit."



"1inch has introduced its v2, which contains a new discovery and routing algorithm to execute swaps faster and at better rates. The team also improved the user interface design."

"1inch v3 Introduced. V3 includes a bunch of improvements such as lower transaction fees, more liquidity and other features."


Liquidity Mining



Other Details

  • The aggregator uses GasToken to potentially lower transaction fees for users when network congestion is high.

Oracle Method

Privacy Method


  • 1inch blocks out US trades in preparation for separate American platform (30-9-2021).

Their Other Projects

1inch Aggregation Protocol

"The protocol facilitates cost-efficient and secure atomic transactions by utilizing a wide range of protocols and performing argument validation and execution verification."

1inch DAO

"1inch DAO is a decentralized autonomous organization that enables $1INCH stakers to vote for key protocol parameters and take part in the network's governance."

1inch Foundation

"The 1inch Foundation is a non-profit organization that issued the $1INCH token and is dedicated to fostering the 1inch Network and initiatives that benefit the network's community."

1inch Labs

"A key contributor to the 1inch Network and a decentralized group of software builders that develop a range of open-source protocols governed by users through the 1inch DAO."

1inch Liquidity Protocol

  • 1inch launched its own automated market maker (AMM) called Mooniswap (11-8-2020).

"1inch.exchange, is integrating with Tron's JustSwap. The new partnership will also see 1inch.exchange’s Mooniswap merge with Tron's blockchain."

"It is unique in its design through its addition of a decay period and price impact fee. These features aim to increase profits for liquidity providers (LPs) and lower profits for arbitrageurs while maintaining the ease of use traders expect from an AMM."
