Welcoming Elastos’ New International Airport: Chainge Finance

Elastos partners with Chainge Finance

We are pleased to announce the recent integration between Elastos and Chainge Finance, enabling users to swap assets like ETH, USDC, and USDT from over 14 blockchain networks into ELA on the Elastos Smart Chain (ESC) or Ethereum (ETH) and back. This integration breaks down barriers and fosters a unified financial ecosystem in Web3. Use here now!

Elastos’ Friction Point

Elastos has long struggled with bridging issues, which affects ecosystem growth. Users on exchanges like Coinbase faced difficulties accessing Elastos as only ELA on Ethereum was available. Previous solutions, such as Glide Finance’s high-fee shadow token bridge and ELK Finance‘s complex swaps, frustrated the community. Just as airports facilitate international travel and business, cross-chain interoperability is vital for a cohesive DeFi ecosystem, reducing costs, enhancing tourism, and promoting overall business.

Unlike Centralised exchanges (CEXs) with third-party control, stringent identity checks (KYC), and entry/exit restrictions, decentralised cross-chain exchanges (DEXs) like Chainge offer a permissionless alternative. They enable secure, seamless asset transfers across blockchains, supporting decentralised identities and eliminating centralisation risks, thus improving utility, security and efficiency for all Web3 stakeholders.

Elastos Chainge Fusion DEX ELA


Stemming from CRC Proposal 151 and led by Sasha Mitchell, Elacity CEO and BeL2 Head of Operations, in collaboration with Chainge team CEO DJ Qian, Elastos and BeL2 Co-Founder Sunny Feng Han, and the BunnyPunk team, Chainge’s cross-chain DEX has been integrated with Elastos. This integration merges liquidity pools on Ethereum (Uniswap) and ESC (Glide Finance) and adds 18,513 ELA and 41,655 USDC liquidity on Chainge’s Fusion blockchain, allowing users to swap assets into ELA from over 14 chains. These chains include Fusion, Ethereum, BNB Chain, Base, Avalanche C, Polygon, Aurora, Syscoin Rollux, X Layer Mainnet, CoreDAO, Syscoin NEVM, Arbitrum, Optimistic, Linea, zkSync and B2 (recent BeL2 partner).


In this screenshot, we show how USDC on Arbitrum was successfully used to purchase ELA on ESC in a single transaction using a decentralised wallet. This simplifies access to the Elastos ecosystem and its various Dapps, effectively opening up Elastos to the entire Web3 community with a new international airport.


Cyber Republic Proposal #294: Banking, Liquidity and Slippage

Next, working with Chainge, the goal is to soon connect to a fiat on/off ramp service, allowing users to buy ELA directly with credit cards or bank accounts and exchange ELA for US dollars into their bank accounts, enhancing accessibility and ease of use.

Fiat On/off Ramp

However, there is still a necessary challenge to tackle surrounding liquidity and slippage. Liquidity is the ease of converting an asset to cash without affecting its price, while slippage is the difference between the expected and actual trade price. High liquidity and low slippage ensure quick, predictable trades, enhancing user experience and driving adoption. Deepening liquidity and reducing slippage are crucial for an efficient financial ecosystem. Below we can see how on the left, a 1,000 ELA order on Chainge has low fees, however, on the right, a 10,000 ELA order has drastic fees of above 15% due to lacking liquidity and high slippage.

Elastos slippage example

Sasha Mitchell proposes using the remaining 197,152 stablecoin assets from the G20 proposal to match with CRC ELA and add to Chainge’s liquidity pool, which currently holds 18,513 ELA and 41,655 USDC. This will drastically boost cross-chain and banking purchase liquidity, reducing slippage and transaction costs and setting Elastos up for the upcoming fiat on/off ramp service. This increased ELA liquidity will allow stakeholders to move assets between chains and banks more efficiently without high costs. Deep liquidity and low slippage help enable quick, stable, and predictable trades.
