Introducing Tally Ho Swaps!

Tally Ho Swaps work just like MetaMask Swaps—except they're almost half the cost and all fees go straight to the community.


You can now swap tokens inside your Tally Ho Wallet! Tally Ho Swaps work just like MetaMask Swaps—except they're almost half the cost and all fees go straight to the community.

ICYMI, Tally Ho is a community-owned web3 wallet that has been redesigned from the ground up. The Tally Ho Swaps feature provides DeFi users with a new way to swap tokens. Tally Ho uses Blocknative for superior gas estimates and 0x to get you the best exchange rates. And all fees go back to the community, via the Community Multisig.

Community Multisig

For the time being, all fees will be safely stored in a community multisig until we launch the DAO. You can read more about the Community Multisig here.

Tally Ho Swaps vs. MetaMask Swaps

We’re not going to re-hash all the differences between Tally Ho and MetaMask here, but if you're learning about Tally Ho for the first time, check out this blog post:

Tally vs. MetaMask
Let’s take a quick look at how Tally and MetaMask stack up.

In October 2020, ConsenSys launched in-wallet swaps on MetaMask. However, they began charging exorbitant service fees (as much as 1% per swap!), with none of the fees going back to the community (or, seemingly, product improvements). Over the last year, MetaMask’s in-wallet DEX aggregation made a cumulative $237 million in revenue from service fees charged to its users.

Imagine what this revenue could do if it went to a community-owned DAO? That's the question we asked ourselves when beginning work on Tally Ho over a year ago.

It can go towards funding public goods, for example, like Tally Ho has pledged already through the Gitcoin Aqueduct.
