🎉 Incentives for Cardano Liquidity Providers are live!

We unlock opportunities for DeFi enthusiasts through solid products and accessible knowledge.


The beginning of the journey

Founders of Spectrum Finance Ilya Oskin and Yasha Black were originally developers in VK.

Later they worked together on the Ergo blockchain and subsequently decided to create a DEX based on it. As time has shown the idea turned out to be extremely successful.

First funding and team presentation

The Spectrum Finance project was funded with Catalyst Fund 5 and started to assemble a team.

Now 16 people work on the project and every day they strive to develop Spectrum Finance in various directions. Each team member has a name, a face and a history. We are fully open for you and for everything new.

The first AMM DEX based on extended UTxO

The first product was ErgoDEX, a decentralized exchange built on the Ergo blockchain.

Spectrum Finance is now bringing together the inherent potential of the Ergo and Cardano blockchains, building a bridge between them to exchange assets. Fast and simple.

Project scaling and rebranding

The existing DEX has become cramped for the ideas and ambitions that have appeared over the course of the project's development.

We took all the best from the previous project and transformed it into something bigger in all directions. Our team faces broader goals and objectives. Spectrum Finance is moving beyond the DEX to scale up the entire DeFi ecosystem.

Values that guide us

Non-commercial drive

Our ambitions are not limited by gaining instant wealth by any means. We create better products driven by enthusiasm, devotion and joy of solving unconventional tasks.

Co-creation before competition

Open-source code, development driven by community feedback, collaboration with other projects. Prosperity of DeFi niche means more to us than winning over other projects.

Decentralization first

We don’t want to mirror systems existing in traditional finance. We want to build a new one, adhering to first principles of crypto: personality protection, absence of centralised custody, no data or assets restrictions, grassroots economy.

Building for long-term success

We believe in gradual and sustainable development over time. Sometimes we may be slower or less intense with new features. But working on products that foster evolutionary changes is our top priority.

Listen to hear

Grassroots economy means a lot to us. Guided by this idea, we do our best to understand our communities needs and use that information to move forward.

Striving for accessibility

We are constantly introducing steps towards reducing complexity. In our product — with a straightforward intuitive UI. In user experience — by providing useful articles, documentation site and instant answers to questions.
