Decentralized exchange SushiSwap has initiated the launch of new liquidity pools across 13 networks, a move that could potentially alter the landscape of trading and liquidity provision across networks. The version 3 (v3) concentrated liquidity pools are scheduled to become available on popular chains such as Ethereum, Arbitrum, Polygon, BSC, and Avalanche. The launch not only intends to expose liquidity providers to increased trading volumes and liquidity but also aims to mitigate their exposure to financial risks.
The v3 liquidity pools are also designed to offer greater flexibility to traders. According to SushiSwap Business Development Lead Alex Shefrin, the pools allow traders to better manage their slippage tolerance and provide an overall improved perspective on certain assets. Alongside these benefits, the protocol is also expected to become “more efficient” in terms of rewards with the introduction of the v3 liquidity pools.
Over the next few months, the v3 liquidity pools are planned to be made available on more than 30 chains. Support for cross-chain activity is a significant aspect of the SushiSwap team’s vision for the decentralized exchange’s future. Shefrin explains that they are essentially building an “engine block” that enables users to move from one asset on one chain to another asset on a different chain. Their aim is to cultivate a “bring your own blockchain” relationship for users.
In addition to the v3 liquidity pools, SushiSwap is introducing a smart-order system called Tines. This system is designed to provide users with the cheapest swaps and maximum capital efficiency, in conjunction with the protocol’s new route processor. The SushiSwap team believes that this combination will significantly enhance user experiences within their platform.
However, the widespread adoption of these new liquidity pools and smart-order systems can also present potential drawbacks. The complex nature of these advanced systems may lead to an increase in technical difficulties and a heightened learning curve for newcomers. Moreover, their efficiency and risk mitigation claims have yet to be fully tested in practical scenarios.
In conclusion, the introduction of v3 liquidity pools by SushiSwap brings advancements that can potentially revolutionize trading and liquidity provision across networks. While the benefits seem promising, with greater flexibility and risk mitigation, the potential drawbacks cannot be overlooked. Time will tell whether these innovative solutions prove advantageous or bring unexpected challenges to the world of decentralized exchanges.
