Uniswap v3 has last but not least been introduced on the Ethereum mainnet.
The official announcement was produced yesterday when edition 3 of the DEX was deployed.
V3 is a a lot more strong model of the Uniswap protocol, and also features Concentrated Liquidity which provides better funds efficiency for liquidity vendors, as very well as far better execution for traders and exceptional infrastructure.
This new version was only unveiled at the conclusion of March, and is now up and operating.
The v1 was introduced in November 2018 as a proof of principle of AMM (automated marketplace makers ), even though the v2 was introduced last calendar year, which was exactly in May well 2020.
2020 was the 12 months of excellent results for Uniswap, as well as for other DEXs, so a lot so that a new, additional improved edition was necessary.
The goal was to start V3 on Ethereum’s mainnet on 5 May possibly 2021, and that was accomplished, with distribution on the Optimism next layer to abide by soon.
The model v3 of Uniswap
To make Uniswap v3 a versatile and economical AMM, Concentrated Liquidity has been extra, which presents personal LPs granular regulate in excess of which selling price bands their cash is allotted, and a number of pricing tiers, which always allow for LPs to be sufficiently compensated for taking on varying degrees of threat.
In addition, the gasoline price tag of v3 swaps on the Ethereum mainnet is a little cheaper than with the prior v2, while those people that will be built on the Optimism distribution will be considerably less costly.
A migration portal to v3 for Uniswap v2 and Sushiswap LP has also been released.
On the other hand, even though soon after 6 months of testing the Uniswap v3 bug bounty did not reveal any significant troubles, v3 is a sophisticated new protocol and it is not feasible to promise that all bugs have been discovered and preset.
The Uniswap v2 protocol will stay purposeful and out there for use as extended as the Ethereum community carries on to exist, but in excess of time the benefits of Uniswap v3 really should acquire most of the liquidity and trading quantity absent from v2.
So there is no obligation to migrate to v3, but it will most likely be much more useful, so substantially so that the Uniswap team believes that most of the buying and selling volume will manifest on v3.
