DefiLlama is the largest multi-chain DeFi dashboard that aggregates data from hundreds of different blockchains and thousands of different apps. Recently, DefiLlama also launched a meta DEX aggregator called LIamaSwap. So what is meta DEX aggregator? Let’s find out?
What is DefiLlama?
DefiLlama is the leading analysis platform that aggregates data from different blockchains such as Ethereum (ETH), Avalanche (AVAX), Near Protocol (NEAR), Solana (SOL), BNB chain (BNB), and more. The project calls itself a data dashboard – provides detailed information for investors for free by analyzing data across chains.
In fact, the decentralization of blockchains makes it difficult for users to keep track of what is happening on-chain or more specifically, trading activities on the DeFi market. DefiLlama aims to help users access DeFi more easily.
DefiLlama offers many outstanding features, providing intuitive, real-time, and reliable transaction data that give users the most accurate and transparent information about the DeFi market. DefiLlama allows users to track all blockchains and Dapps, from popular to lesser known ones.
Users can use DefiLlama to follow Dapps, blockchains, Oracles, Forks, Airdrops, and NFTs.

Defillama allows users to know if apps are compatible with chains other than Ethereum. So, developers can know the best DeFi exchanges for the largest chains without spending time doing individual research.
Meta DEX Aggregator
Meta DEX Aggregator is a new product of DefiLlama. It is a liquidity aggregator from various sources. Meta DEX Aggregator quotes the best price for a trade from multiple aggregators, making it more convenient for users to trade.
Traders can choose the best price queried from multiple DEX aggregators. DefiLlama will charge no fees for this service, and users will get the same price as they would if they traded on a DEX aggregator’s website. Instead, DefiLlama will earn its revenue share from the aggregator platform the trades are routed through.
DefiLlama will also verify the gas prices and trade routes of various aggregators to make sure that the price quoted to traders is accurate. The platform also has an opt-in privacy mode which allows traders to prevent other aggregators from linking a wallet address to an IP.
