Cross-chain transactions at your fingertips
Bridge. Swap. Invest.
rhino.fi is opening DeFi to the entire world. People shouldn’t have to go through centralised web 3 exchanges to reach financial freedom – we believe they should have a gateway that takes them straight there.
So we’re creating that gateway that allows you to enjoy the best of DeFi on any chain from a single wallet. We take niche blockchain technologies and make them universal, and we prioritise helping our users providing these new technologies to improve their lives over everything else.
We’re not just starting a movement towards DeFi. We’re starting a stampede.
rhino.fi, formerly DeversiFi, is a multi-chain, self-custodial DeFi aggregator hosted on layer 2, on top of the Ethereum blockchain.
rhino.fi provides all the best opportunities in DeFi: bridging, swaps, yield, staking and trading. We initially focused on ERC-20 token trading and cross-chain swaps, but expanded into the bridging market early in 2023. We’re now connecting 13 blockchains seamlessly, and will continue to extend this feature to further Layer 2s and non-EVM chains soon.
We launched the first first zero knowledge rollup powered DEX in 2020 and subsequently raised a $5 million round led by ParaFi and blockchain capital.
We’ve processed over $1.5B USD of trading volume. As a layer 2 platform, semi-independent from the main Ethereum blockchain, we settle transactions ourselves before posting the records back on layer 1.
This spares users from the congestion of the Ethereum mainnet and frees them from the punishing gas (transaction) fees it charges, while providing full on-chain security. Our specific technology is built on a validation engine known as a ‘roll up’ which bundles transactions and processes them in bulk, speeding up the process even further.
Each transaction is validated using zero-knowledge proofing, which maximises user privacy.
We have our own native token, DVF, which you can trade on our platform or stake for governance rights: once you’ve staked DVF, you can vote on changes to our protocol and even suggest your own. DVF was launched in July 2021 and the proceeds from the initial sale are held in our decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) – the rules-based, community-led entity that oversees rhino.fi.
Our parent company, rhino.fi Labs, is headquartered in the British Virgin Islands.
