2020 is a colorful year in the history of DeFi development because the explosive growth of Ethereum’s DeFi has created an endless stream of various DEX and mining projects, creating a number of wealth opportunities and introducing us to a number of excellent DEXs, such as Uniswap, SushiSwap , etc. However, as the price of Ethereum continues to increase, the problem of high gas fees on the Ethereum chain has also scared off a group of retail investors who are eager to try. The good thing is that there are always more solutions than difficulties, and the high gas fee and touching TPS of Ethereum have also brought ideas and inspiration to other platforms and public chains, such as Binance Smart Chain BSC, Huobi Ecological Chain HECO, and high-performance public chain SOLANA and others have begun to make efforts to highlight their advantages and seize the opportunity to win a place. The DeFi era also incorporates diversity and competitiveness, and a hundred flowers bloom, which is a good development trend.
Recently, the popular DeFi section is definitely NFT. NFT category tokens such as CHZ, MANA, SAND, ENJ, etc., which take games and sports as the entry point, have a fierce momentum, and everyone has to put their eyes on this track. Many new projects have also focused their attention on the NFT market, trying to make products more diversified. Binance Smart Chain's decentralized exchange AliumSwap is also doing this.
1. Some shortcomings of the current DEX
At present, various AMMs are emerging in endlessly, but overall there are still some shortcomings. In general, there are some:
1. The function is limited and single
Most AMM decentralized exchanges have limited and single functions and can only provide some functions. They cannot meet the diverse needs of users and cannot maximize user benefits. For example, some Swap is a simple trading and market makers, and there is no cross-chain , Multi-chain is not supported.
2. Difficulties in the circulation of cross-chain assets
Most of the current DEXs are based on a certain chain, which also limits the need for deposited assets to support a certain chain. It is inconvenient to cross-chain with each other and cannot be easily traded and circulated.
3. Transaction fees remain high
The transaction fee on the Ethereum chain knows who uses it, and who uses it distressed. Sometimes the amount is too small and the transfer amount is less than the handling fee, and as the number of users increases and the price of ETH increases, the transfer time becomes longer and the handling fee handling fee will also rise.
