Introducing: Cheap & quick trading on Layer 2

Trade on Ethereum for low fees

You can now get low cost, high speed trading in your Argent zkSync account. We've integrated with ZigZag Exchange to make it possible.

Trading on Ethereum mainnet can regularly cost tens of dollars in network fees, making it too expensive for most people. Our new trading feature solves that.

There's a flat fee of just $1 per trade, including network fees. The fee goes to ZigZag, not Argent.

There's still a limited range of assets available (see below for the list) but in the coming weeks you'll get access to many more.

Low fee, easy and secure trading with Argent on Layer 2

  2. Tap ‘Trade
  3. Select the asset you want to trade in exchange for another
  4. Tap ‘Proceed’

Shortly after, your transaction will be completed. Quick and easy with low fees, the way DeFi should be. 

What can you buy?

Currently, you can only trade a limited amount of pairs with ZigZag, they are:
