SushiSwap Captures Bigger DEX Market Share; Lays Down 2021 Roadmap
While Uniswap lost 40% of its market share since August, Sushiswap gained 1,120% in just over 2 months. Meanwhile, the Sushi token price is fast approaching its ATH as the team shares what’s to come this year.
Decentralized exchange SushiSwap’s native token Sushi has been enjoying an uptrend of 790% since November.
The token, which is still 62% away from its all-time high of $12.5 made on Sept. 1st, started climbing upwards today ahead of the roadmap release as announced by the project lead 0xMaki on Friday.
Sushiswap actually accounts for 24.4% of all DEX volume, up from a mere 2% in late Oct., as per Dune Analytics. Meanwhile, Uniswap’s share has decreased from 70.65% in late Aug. to now 42.6%.
The second-largest DEX recorded a $3.2 billion volume in the last 7 days.
In terms of count of unique addresses that traded, trailing the last 7 days, Sushiswap comes in 3rd with 8,414 number of traders followed by 1inch’s 13,236 and Uniswap’s 98,426.
Much like other metrics, the TVL (total value locked) of the project has also reached $1.7 billion, from merely $239 million in early November.
The team is planning to move to a new domain this year as “we aren’t an AMM anymore moving forward but an OpenOrg part of the Yearn ecosystem,” revealed the roadmap. It will also support IPFS.
The governance transition could either be like the Aragon v2 model or like Synthetix to opt for Council of community members is expected to finish by Q4 of 2021.
DSD, FRAX, and BAO projects are already secured for integration in Q1 2021 besides cross-chain AMM enabled by Rune/Moonbeam and live testing version of Sushiswap on Kusama, MEV integration via ArcherDAO, shared the team.
The plan is to incentivize teams, wallets, dApps & protocols to build with Sushiswap via an emission enabled pool of 0.1x and provide technical support for projects natively integrating Sushiswap.
As per the roadmap, the team ticked off — no lockup so that it can integrate inside Aave-Maker, Keep3r auto-serving of reward, and Wrapped-SLP to be used in various money markets that are being worked on.
The team also introduced Mirin in addition to the Deriswap that comes with franchised pools, double yield, K3PR dynamic yield rebalancing, and integrated 1-Click Za among others.
As for BentoBox, Yearn.Finance creator Andre Cronje introduced with the Sushi-Yearn merger is ready for its soft launch in mid-January. The project has already been audited by Quantstamp & PeckShield but would see another round from Trail of Bits.
When it comes to Minimal Initial Sushi Offering (MISO), a token launchpad, the team is about done with the smart contracts. The v1 of the launchpad will have multiple features; freeze of SLP with vesting for teams, liquidity mining, ICBO, farms, auctions, and crowdsales.
For the layer 2 solution, Sushi will move in sync with the greater Yearn ecosystem. Meanwhile, the Onsen program will be announcing support for mid-tier and lower cap tokens to become accredited to participate in its liquidity mining program.
