Why Build on Shell
Build with simpler and modular code
Building on Shell means you can create precise AMMs and compose complex atomic transactions without writing a single line of Solidity code. It means your financial primitives will require no accounting logic, making them simpler and easier to understand. It means your users will pay up to 4x less gas and gain access to more capital-efficient liquidity pools with fungible LP tokens.
There is no downside to being an early primitive on Shell. Even at its highest, gas costs for Shell primitives are no higher than those of existing DeFi protocols. But as the ecosystem grows, there will be more and more opportunities to compose primitives on the Ocean — enabling complex, low-gas transactions — and drawing in increasingly more users, builders, and assets.
