- Founded 2020
- Decentralized Exchange Protocol
SushiSwap is a decentralized exchange protocol that emerged as a fork of UniSwap. The main difference being the SUSHI token which acts as a governance token and entitles holders to a percentage of the trading fees charged on the network. Both UniSwap and SushiSwap, use an automated market making (AMM) model, where liquidity providers add funds to liquidity pools. Unlike centralized, order book exchanges, token pairs are priced according to an equation in which multiplying the prices of the 2 tokens will always equal a constant.
