2.2 Hipo.com UI update
Hipo DeFi’s official website ushered in a new UI upgrade in August. We updated the overall brand color and the UX design of the GateBridge page. The adjustment of more saturated colors and rounded corners is to express the characteristics of Hipo products of asset safety, ease of use, and efficiency.
There are still some pages that are still being upgraded and developed, and the fully upgraded Hipo will be more complete and better to use. We can’t wait to provide a better DeFi tool in GateChain!
Hipo Swap is a Swap protocol on HipoDefi. Currently, it has three functions: Profession swap, Quick swap, and Gateswap liquidity.
Profession swap and quick swap are exchange tools provided for transactions between different tokens. The difference is that professional swap can display a specific price trend chart, while quick swap omits this process and directly adopts the optimal exchange path. Hiposwap currently supports token exchange on seven Layer 1 networks of Ethereum, GateChain, BSC, Polygon, Heco, Arbitrum, and Avalanche.
Gateswap is an automated liquidity protocol where each Gateswap smart contract (or pair of contracts) manages a liquidity pool consisting of a reserve of two erc-20 tokens.
Anyone can become a Pool’s Liquidity Provider (LP) by adding the equivalent value of each base token in exchange for pool tokens. These tokens track a prorated LP share of the total reserve and can withdraw the underlying asset at any time.

3.1 The GateOracle: $GT GETS A SEAT AT THE LONG HODL TABLE
The GateOracle was implemented by the GT team through ChainLink and is now able to provide real world data in real time, combined with the blockchain data.
Each on-chain price feed belongs to an on-chain address. This is a function that allows the independent GateOracle nodes to exchange data with the feeds in a decentralized, accurate and real time manner.
3.2 Detailed explanation of Zk-rollup solution
As far as everyone knows, there exist many problems with Layer 1 blockchain networks (ETH for example) such as high gas fee, low Tps, network congestion etc. The discussions on solving these problems are constantly ongoing. Rollup and sharding technology have grown to become an important expansion method to improve the throughput and scalability of L1 networks.
The Zk-rollup solution developed by GateChain will also be launched. As a self-developed Layer 2 expansion solution, we refer to the advantages and disadvantages of the mainstream Zk-rollup projects on the market, and actively innovate to improve EVM compatibility without sacrificing security and efficiency.
3.3 What makes DeFi complete? Explore Wrapped Tokens in the GT Ecosystem.
Hipo DeFi was built in an open multi-chain ecology and its purpose is to allow users to enjoy cross-chain transactions on the most popular chains.
Wrapped tokens are considered cryptocurrencies that can be traded at the same price of the initial cryptocurrency but on a different blockchain. Wrapped tokens came into existence through a process called “minting”.
On the GT ecosystem, wrapped tokens “swim” in pools with enough liquidity and secure transaction protocols. On hipo.com alone, transactions have long surpassed the $737,660,000,000 milestone thanks to our active users that have been supporting DeFi since day1.
