Add effortless token swaps to your Algorand dApp.

We’re excited to introduce the latest innovation in our Tinyman family: the Tinyman Swap Widget! Created to make integration a breeze and user experience top-notch, this feature sets a new standard for quick and easy access to DeFi functionalities. Just a single line of code is all it takes, making it incredibly easy for developers. Moreover, our leading position in swaps within the Algorand ecosystem ensures that users will always benefit from competitive swap rates. Recognized as the most preferred DEX by individuals and ASA owners, we’ll continue to strive for excellence. Now, let’s dive into the details below.

Simplifying DeFi for All

Our guiding principle has been to make DeFi accessible by providing intuitive yet powerful tools, including our Open Sourced SDKs which are already public and in use by many for seamless integration to Tinyman Swaps. You can access these SDKs through the following links: tinyman-py-sdk and tinyman-js-sdk. The release of the Swap Widget is a tangible reflection of our objective. It is a critical advancement in our ongoing efforts to make the DeFi ecosystem more accessible and efficient for everyone, all without compromising quality and security.

First Movers: A Special Thanks

We’re really grateful to the initial projects that have taken the step to incorporate our Swap Widget. By doing so, they’re enriching the functionality of their platforms and significantly enhancing the user experience. Their collaboration helps us refine and improve this tool for a broader audience.

  • Algocasino: Not just your premier destination for casino games on the Algorand blockchain, Algocasino has seamlessly incorporated the Swap Widget into their in-app gaming experience. This adds a layer of convenience for their users, making it easier than ever to swap tokens without leaving the game.
  • Gora: As a multi-chain oracle dedicated to providing reliable on-chain price data, Gora has integrated the Swap Widget to offer its users instant access to the best swap rates for their tokens directly within their platform.

These first partnerships show just how flexible our Swap Widget is. You can add it almost anywhere in your project, whether in a game, a financial tool, or something else. We’re excited to work with more teams to make this feature even more useful and widely available.

Core Advantages of the Tinyman Swap Widget

Swap Algorand Assets

For Projects & Developers:

  • Easy Integration: A single line of code is all it takes to embed the widget into your platform.
  • Revenue Generation: The widget supports an optional fee structure for swaps, creating an additional revenue stream for your project.

For Users:

  • Competitive Rates: Benefit from best-in-class swap rates due to Tinyman’s robust liquidity.
  • User-Centric Design: Execute swaps without leaving your current application, providing a cohesive user experience. The Swap Widget is “Powered by Tinyman,” ensuring the same trusted quality and security features found in our web application.

Implementation Guide

Incorporating the Tinyman Swap Widget is straightforward. We offer two methods for transaction signing:

  • Local Signer, is an option with a separate session within the Widget for those looking for simplified implementation.
  • Parent Signer, is a more advanced option and aims to use the existing Parent App’s session; it does not need a separate session for the users.

Comprehensive guidance is available on our configuration page.

For more in-depth information, please refer to our official documentation.

Additional Features and Customizations

The widget allows projects to set an optional “Platform Fee” on swaps, which can be tailored to your project’s financial model. Future updates will include the ability to specify an asset list for the widget, affording users greater flexibility in swap assets choices.

Instant Best Rates

Note: We’ve consciously decided not to incorporate a user-configurable “Slippage Tolerance” setting. This ensures that all users benefit from optimal rates via our Tinyman Swap Router, regardless of their familiarity with DeFi concepts.
