Hector DEX is our Cross-Chain DEX Aggregator embedded into the Hector ecosystem. This means that users can swap their tokens to and from HEC (and others) across multiple chains whilst getting the best possible rates. This is one of the steps we are taking to turn Hector into a centre within the Fantom Opera Chain. Let’s explore Hector DEX.
Remember that you will need to enable both networks you intend to use in your wallet. For example, if you want to swap from the Avalanche Chain to the Fantom Chain, you will need both of these chains enabled in your wallet. Click here for a guide on how to add chains to your wallet.
Go to our dashboard at https://app.hector.finance/#/dashboard
Navigate to “Exchange” on the left panel.
This will take you to Hector DEX. You will now see a swapping interface similar to those you’re already familiar with. The top panel shows the token you have chosen to swap. The panel below it shows the token you will receive. Notice the small icon next to the token icon - this shows the chain that the token is on.
Clicking the token icon in the top panel will open the token list. You can search for tokens using the search box. At the top of this panel you will see the name of the chain you’re browsing. Clicking this will open the chain list.
Click any of the chains to browse tokens on that chain.
Enter the amount of tokens you would like to swap in the top panel and wait for Hector DEX to find the best rates. When you’re ready, click swap. The Bridging and Swapping will all be handled by Hector DEX in the background.

Things to consider:

  • It is usually more cost-effective to convert your funds to a stablecoin before bridging them to another network.
  • Remember that you will need to enable both networks you intend to use in your wallet. For example, if you want to swap from the Avalanche Chain to the Fantom Chain, you will need both of these chains enabled in your wallet. Click here for a guide on how to add chains to your wallet.
