Our exchange platform is first to provide on-chain, trustless and instant trades with high liquidity. For more information, please refer to our whitepaper.


Bancor uses a fixed formula to determine the price of the token, while KyberNetwork lets the reserve managers determine the price. To become a reserve manager at KyberNetwork, user needs to register with and be approved by the operator.


0x utilizes offline channels to match makers and takers, but KyberNetwork matches and processes the order on-chain immediately. 0x's approach is to bring the order book off-chain and then execute the settlement on-chain. On the other hand, KyberNetwork's main proposition is to support on-chain and instant trades with guaranteed liquidity.
