0x, a decentralized exchange built on Ethereum, just released 0x Instant, a suite of computer codes for creating crypto purchasing portals that can be integrated into websites and apps relatively easily.

By copying the code snippets provided on 0x’s website, website and app builders can integrate simple, user-friendly widgets that allow their users to purchase 27 different ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens, including BAT, REP and CVC, through 0x.

“With just a few lines of code, you can now add crypto purchasing seamlessly to any app or website,” according to a Medium post from 0x. “Instant is open-source, fully configurable, and allows hosts to earn affiliate fees on every transaction. … It automatically finds the best prices within the 0x networked liquidity pool and lets users pay for tokens with ETH via MetaMask, Ledger, Trezor, or any other Ethereum wallet.”

It also allows hosts of the code to charge “users a fee on all trades made through Instant with the affiliateFee option,” according to its documentation. “Simply specify an ethereum address and feePercentage (up to 5%), and a percentage of each transaction will be deposited into the specified address.”

Though there may not exactly be a scramble for many new users to purchase new altcoins during this bear market, this option arrives as likely the most easy-to-integrate and user-friendly tool for website and app developers to date.
