Welcome to the Onboard Protocol docs!

Here you’ll find conceptual and technical documentation of the protocol, as well as everything you need to integrate and use Onboard in your applications.

The Onboard Ecosystem

Before we get started, we should make clear the distinctions between the different areas of “Onboard”, some of which may confuse new users.

  • Onboard Protocol: A suite of open-source smart contracts that enable the peer-to-peer exchange of assets on EVM-compatible blockchains.
  • Onboard Exchange: The first dApp powered by the Onboard Protocol. It is a marketplace for crypto-fiat swaps across different currencies. With the Onboard Protocol, anyone can build dApps like Onboard Exchange.
  • Onboard Connect: The SDK & API integration layer for Onboard Exchange, targeted at Web2 and Web3 developers who want access to the ready-made marketplace & liquidity Onboard Exchange offers.
  • Onboard Core Contributors and Community: The development of the Onboard Protocol and ecosystem is driven by Onboard’s Core Contributors and the broader community.
