The Balancer-Gnosis(CoW)-Protocol:
A new era of cooperation to bring DEX trading to the next level

The Balancer Labs & CoW Protocol integration is now live, bringing better prices, MEV protection and some other UX perks to users of both protocols.

  • MEV protection
  • Best available on chain prices by tapping into ALL on chain liquidity pools, routing via aggregators and finding coincidence of wants
  • Gasless trading
  • Subsidized fees
  • The famous Quasimodo Solver (our friend that constantly looks for Coincidence of Wants in our order book) is tapping natively into Balancer’s liquidity pools to facilitate settling partial CoWs.
  • In the future fast-path settlements will be facilitated, where individual trades can be directly settled on the Balancer vault without routing through the Cow Protocol’s settlement contract, saving the users some additional $$ in transaction fees.
