What is SushiSwap?

On the Ethereum blockchain, SushiSwap is one of the most popular Decentralized Applications (dApp). SushiSwap’s decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol employs the automated market maker (AMM) concept. Simply put, SushiSwap does not have an order book. Instead, it uses smart contracts, making it easier to purchase and sell cryptocurrency as an algorithm sets the price.

SushiSwap is a decentralized Ethereum-based exchange that was cloned from Uniswap. SushiSwap lets you exchange a variety of tokens and use other financial services. There are no centralized authorities in this system. Instead, it completes trades using smart contracts or codes that automate processes and liquidity offered by other users.

How does SushiSwap work?

SushiSwap can only be used to exchange one cryptocurrency for another; it cannot be used to trade fiat currencies for crypto or vice versa. This is because it employs the Automated Market Maker model.

Users can add liquidity by sending SushiSwap equal-value amounts of two cryptocurrencies. They are given Liquidity Provider (LP) tokens and can start receiving rewards in exchange. Users can earn additional APY rewards by depositing their newly created LP tokens into yield farms. This provides an extra incentive for users to remain a part of the liquidity pool.

Key features of the SushiSwap project

SushiSwap has several features that distinguish it from other decentralized apps. Decentralized exchanges, such as SushiSwap, have become an essential part of the financial ecosystem because they provide equal trading opportunities. SushiSwap’s key features include:

Creation of liquidity pools: SushiSwap operates by using smart contracts to create liquidity pools. The traders have access to the users’ locked assets on the protocol. All donors to the liquidity pool receive two benefits: the form of fees paid by traders when accessing assets and the other in the form of tokens. The fees are dispersed among all contributors in proportion to their pool contribution.

Offering loans through BentoBox and Kashi: The SushiSwap’s BentoBox is a lending market. Users must keep each token for trading pairs in a single contract due to this. This is accomplished using Kashi, a loan and margin trading platform built on BentoBox. It’s a method of creating highly personalized and gas-efficient protocols for lending, borrowing, and collateralizing various synthetic assets, tokens, and crypto-assets.

Support of several dApps through Bentobox: BentoBox serves as a vault for many decentralized applications (dApps). Furthermore, users can profit from BentoBox’s power. The most significant benefit of using BentoBox to create dApps is that they are already approved and save customers money on network wallet fees. In addition, these dApps are extremely gas efficient, allowing users to interact with them at lower costs.

SUSHI Token

Sushi coin is an ERC20-based token that powers SushiSwap, an Ethereum-based decentralized cryptocurrency exchange, and automated market maker. Holders of the Sushi token (SUSHI) can participate in community governance and stake their tokens to obtain a share of SushiSwap token transaction fees.

Liquidity mining is used to distribute $Sushi token to SushiSwap liquidity providers. The maximum supply of Sushi coins (SUSHI) is 250 million, with a circulating supply of over 192 million sushi coins out of 241,602,267 SUSHI.

SushiSwap token currently has a price of $3.29 and a market cap of $635,324,328 as per data taken from Coingecko on the 16th of April 2022. The current trading volume is $96,316,791, with a market dominance estimated to be 0.02%.

SushiSwap Products

Swap: Swap allows users to trade one cryptocurrency for another, such as turning your Tether (USDT) into sushi coin (SUSHI).

Limit Order: The Limit order product enables the SushiSwap crypto trader to place a variety of limit orders for various tokens while maintaining the same underlying capital. The suppliers of decentralized limit orders, such as Sushi exchange, don’t have to take any risks because the filler bots generate profit from every order filled.

MISO: MISO is a set of open-source smart contracts designed to make launching a new project on the SushiSwapexchange as simple as possible. MISO is the Sushi crypto exchange community’s unique platform for launching projects.

BentoBox: The BentoBox is a token vault that pays interest on money invested in it. BentoBox’s standout feature is its ability to track users’ deposits using an artificial balance for accounting for their idle cash while funds are applied. As a result, the BentoBox generates income for these funds while preventing losses.

Kashi Lending: Built on the BentoBox, Kashi is a lending and margin trading platform that allows anybody to establish gas-efficient markets for lending, borrowing, and collateralizing a range of DeFi tokens, stable coins, and synthetic assets.

SushiSwap Roadmap

SushiSwap unveiled its new plan in a Medium blog post named “2021” on the 10th of January, 2021.

The DEX platform indicated that significant upcoming advances in the DeFi space would feature complicated and advanced functionalities, such as a cross-chain DEX enabled by Rune and Moonbeam, a Polkadot implementation, and a genuinely decentralized governance system.

According to the press release, the site would also showcase the introduction of BentoBox, a new loan product. In addition, updates on earlier announced projects were also presented, including a v2 launch dubbed ‘Mirin.’

Aside from that, the platform mentioned a potential integration with ArcherDAO. In addition, support for algorithmic stablecoins FRAX, DSD, and BAO will be added soon.

SushiSwap co-founder 0xMaki discussed the idea of the ever-expanding and well-incentivized SushiSwap. He indicated that he wants to encourage people to productize assets by making them join a DAO. He plans on introducing a broader audience to the DeFi ecosystem and feature emerging decentralized applications prominently on the Sushi platform.

The primary plan for 2021 was to move to a new domain representing SushiSwap as an OpenOrg part of the Yearn ecosystem and not an automated market.

Presently, SushiSwap has accomplished some projects in their Roadmap, like BentoBox, while the others are still to come soon.

An exchange rate is the rate at which one cryptocurrency can be exchanged for another through a certain crypto exchange provider. Cryptocurrency exchange rates on Swapzone reflect current prices of crypto assets and are updated every 30 seconds for you to keep track of any market changes and fluctuations to profit when buying the dip or going with the best exchange rate and the lowest exchange fees. All cryptocurrency exchange providers have their own rates, which depends on supply and demand, mining rewards, costs and so on. See what else might affect the rate in our article on prices.

There are two types of exchange rates aggregated by Swapzone – fixed rates and floating rates. To receive the exact amount of crypto that is displayed at the beginning of the exchange and shield yourself against the market's volatility, opt for fixed-rate offers. If you're ready to take a risk and receive less or more than the sum displayed, go with floating-rate offers but bear in mind that floating rates may drastically change any second.

Crypto transaction fees may vary depending on the network (Ethereum transaction fees tend to spike during the congestion on the network), your chosen cryptocurrency, an instant exchange provider as well as its transaction processing speed and internal policy. These fees may be relatively low but it’s crucial to know they may be imposed in the first place.

If you want to exchange cryptocurrency with the lowest fees, beware of the offers with a grey-colored “Transaction fees are not included” label displayed under the exchange rate. To avoid having to pay an unexpected amount of fees during the exchange, opt for those that do not have that label. Read our articles to learn more about how to exchange cryptocurrency with the lowest fees and find out which assets have the lowest transaction fees.

What is average transaction time?

arrow

Transactions usually take from 5 to 30 minutes to be processed, especially if you choose currencies with speedy networks. However, there are several factors that may affect and slow down the exchange process, i.e. transaction volume, blockchain capacity, network updates, cryptocurrency itself and the capacity or chosen exchange platforms.

The processing may take longer due to the large transaction volume, congestion of the network, blockchain overload and market overload, technical issues or system failures, lack of liquidity or network maintenance.

The transaction may be also stuck if you forget to add a required Extra ID, mistake networks or use the wrong wallet for a chosen crypto asset. If you worry that the exchange processing is taking too long, please, contact us at [email protected] or via our live chat on the landing page.
