Comparing SimpleSwap to blockchain bridges is not entirely correct. SimpleSwap is a crypto exchange service, and blockchain bridges are a tool that allows you to transfer information and assets between different blockchains.

However, SimpleSwap makes it much easier to exchange coins between different blockchains.

SimpleSwap vs Cross-chain bridges

  • SimpleSwap is an intuitive service, which makes it accessible to users of all levels of blockchain experience. Blockchain bridges can be tricky to use as they require a deep understanding of how blockchain works as well as setting up a connection to the blockchain.
  • SimpleSwap allows you to exchange crypto quickly. Using blockchain bridges take longer due to the need to confirm transactions on two blockchains.
  • SimpleSwap offers low exchange fees, making it more affordable for users of all budgets. Cross-chain swaps may require additional fees because of two blockchains involved.
  • SimpleSwap offers a great variety of crypto pairs. Bridges are limited in the choice of assets that can be exchanged.
