Uniswap V3 within the Pipeline
Constructing upon the success of Uniswap V1 and V2, which it claims has facilitated greater than $135 billion in buying and selling quantity since its Could 2020 rollout, the decentralized finance (DeFi) heavyweight is now seeking to launch Uniswap V3, an iteration the crew claims shall be loaded with all of the options that can make Uniswap probably the most versatile and environment friendly automated market maker (AMM) ever developed.
As acknowledged in its weblog post, Uniswap V3, which is predicted to go reside on the Layer1 Ethereum mainnet on Could 5, 2021, will help an enormous array of modern options, together with concentrated liquidity, a number of payment tiers, capital effectivity, vary orders and extra.

Enter Uniswap V3
The crew says not like in Uniswap V2, the place liquidity suppliers (LPs) earn income on solely a small portion of their capital and are subjected to excessive levels of slippage, Uniswap V3’s concentrated liquidity function fosters capital effectivity, because it makes it potential for LPs to pay attention their funds inside particular worth ranges, thereby offering extra liquidity and incomes extra rewards with fewer dangers.
“An LP within the ETH/DAI pool might resolve to allocate $100 to the value ranges $1,000 to $2,000 and a further $50 to the ranges $1,500 to $1,750,” the crew explains, including that the technique allows customers to commerce in opposition to the “mixed liquidity of all particular person curves with no fuel value enhance per liquidity supplier.”
And the overall buying and selling charges generated at a given worth vary are shared by LPs based on the quantity of liquidity they contributed to the vary.
Shedding extra gentle on the idea of concentrated liquidity and capital effectivity, the crew wrote:
“Alice and Bob each need to present liquidity in an ETH/DAI pool on Uniswap v3. They every have $1m. The present worth of ETH is 1,500 DAI. Alice decides to deploy her capital throughout the complete worth vary (similar to in V2). She deposits 500,000 DAI and 333.33 ETH (a complete of $1m),” Nonetheless, Bob, then again, who totally understands the idea of concentrated liquidity, “creates a concentrated place, depositing solely throughout the worth vary from 1,000 to 2,250.”
“He deposits 91,751 DAI and 61.17 ETH, price a complete of about $183,500 and retains the opposite $816,500 himself.”
Now, whereas Alice’s invested capital is 5.44x greater than Bob’s, they are going to each earn the identical quantity of charges, supplied the ETH/DAI worth stays inside Bob’s 1,000 to 2,250 vary and peradventure the value of ETH falls to zero, Bob will lose simply $159,000, versus Alice’s $1m.
What’s extra, Uniswap V3 additionally affords LPs versatile charges. Customers can select to earn 0.05 %, 0.30 % and 1.00 % per pair, making it simpler for them to tailor their margins based on the anticipated pair volatility.
