In our previous article, we broke down the history and basics of bonding curves. This article will further the discussion by looking at a few different types of curves and how they function. With the coming Q1 Public Beta release of the new Zap Protocol interface, there will be drag and drop functionality when designing and deploying bonding curves.

The many pricing models that service and product providers can create with Zap Protocol allows the market to decide which works best for them and their situation. …


The crypto-space recently experienced a new wave of attention around oracles, decentralized finance (DeFi), and other web3 products. One of the greatest technological tools available in this fast-growing space is called a bonding curve. This article will explain the roots of the technology, why it is so important for tokenization, and how Zap Protocol continues to be the leader in developing cross-industry solutions with the technology.

Origins of the Bonding Curve

ConsenSys engineer Simon de la Rouviere popularized the initial concept of bonding curves (though Zap coined the term) when he considered how to retain our “social liquidity” in an increasingly automated world. Rouviere began


The Zap utility token, providing access to the decentralized Zap protocol, can now be acquired by exchanging Tether (USDT) through a ZAP/USDT pair on the Bitrue marketplace. This is the third Zap pairing made available on the Bitrue digital asset exchange, joining ZAP/BTC and ZAP/XRP markets.

Tether (USDT) is a cryptocurrency anchored to the price of the US Dollar and is the world’s largest stablecoin by market cap. With increasing attention on oracle and decentralized financial (DeFi) products, this new market will help meet the growing demand for truly decentralized products and services.

First CoinGecko Oracle Test Phase Finalized, Initial Oracle Offering Date & Time to Come

Zap announced its partnership with CoinGecko, the leading cryptocurrency and digital asset market data website, back in March 2020 just before the Covid19 pandemic caused governments across the world to issue stay at home orders and close travel and economies.

The Zap Protocol was recently featured in an article by CardRates.com which detailed to their readers how our decentralized tools enable businesses to modernize various aspects of their operations using blockchain technology, smart contracts, and bonding curves.

“Automated market makers provide liquidity in electronic financial markets through sophisticated algorithms governed by game theory. For example, Zap uses modern economic principles coupled with an algorithmic market maker to replace the antiquated bid/ask spread based in traditional exchanges. Participants in trades involving our bonding curves are guaranteed liquidity as they are always able to buy and sell.

‘The bid and the ask happen within the smart contract,’ Spanos said. ‘It’s completely decentralized finance.’”
