Multiswap Breaks Records: Swaps 340 Tokens in a Single Blockchain Transaction

In the world of blockchain, transactions have always been a central focus. The success or failure of transactions, their speed, and the number of transactions per second are often discussed metrics. However, Eric Forgy’s Multiswap project is pushing the boundaries of what is possible by introducing new and more complex transaction capabilities, demonstrating the ability to swap hundreds of tokens in a single transaction.

Multiswap achieved a remarkable milestone on its testnet, executing a record-breaking 340-token swap in a single transaction. Eric Forgy, the mastermind behind Multiswap, believes that this number will continue to grow, setting the stage for revolutionary advancements in the way people transact.

Eric’s background includes a physics Ph.D. and work on ballistic missile defense at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory before transitioning to Wall Street, where he conducted quantitative and risk research for renowned firms. Now, as a founder, he aspires to rebuild global capital markets on-chain through his current project, CavalRe.

Eric’s ambitious vision is to address the long-standing issues in traditional capital markets, and he believes that Avalanche is the ideal blockchain network to realize this goal. Multiswap serves as the first step toward achieving this vision by laying the foundation for CavalRe’s future projects and powering the digital markets Eric envisions.

One of the significant advantages of Multiswap is its incredible speed, with the 340-token swap being finalized in just two seconds. This remarkable speed, combined with the ability to handle multiple transactions simultaneously, opens up a world of possibilities. Eric highlights one example where large traditional asset managers can rebalance their entire portfolios in a single transaction, showcasing the efficiency and convenience brought by Multiswap.

Eric’s dreams extend far beyond portfolio rebalancing. He firmly believes that, built upon groundbreaking innovations like Multiswap, traditional finance can experience a monumental improvement. He even goes as far as stating that traditional stock exchanges, like the New York Stock Exchange, will eventually migrate to blockchain in the next 5 to 10 years.

Multiswap introduces several innovative features that enhance the automated market maker (AMM) model. One of these features is the value-based pools, allowing for an unlimited number of tokens in a pool. This enables liquidity providers (LPs) to use their liquidity provision as an exchange-traded fund (ETF), tracking the pool’s tokens, without facing single-sided impermanent loss.

Additionally, Multiswap prevents fragmentation of liquidity across pools, ensuring that the entire liquidity of any token is available for any other swap. This increased liquidity leads to greater capital efficiency for traders, allowing them to execute trades more effectively.

The core ingredient of Multiswap’s success lies in the concept of self-financing trades, an idea Eric Forgy brought from his traditional finance background. This means that no value is created or destroyed during a transaction, ensuring a natural assumption that is absent in the current decentralized finance (DeFi) landscape.

To gain a more comprehensive understanding of Eric’s philosophy and the design decisions behind Multiswap, interested individuals can refer to the project’s documentation or experience the exchange firsthand when it launches on Avalanche later this year.

Looking to the future, Eric plans to build a custom virtual machine (VM) and subnet, leveraging the technical prowess of the Avalanche blockchain to support his grand vision. As an engineer and physicist, Eric firmly believes that Avalanche offers the best technology available.

Since starting Multiswap, Eric has enjoyed collaborating with the Ava Labs team, receiving their support as he builds the future on Avalanche. With a focus on accommodating trillions in total value locked (TVL), Eric’s team aims to revolutionize capital markets, rebuild financial services, and create the foundation for the evolution of the entire industry.
