KyberSwap is a multichain decentralized exchange aggregator as well as its own novel liquidity source.
KyberSwap is a decentralized exchange that allows users to swap and earn crypto assets. The protocol is split into two components: Classic and Elastic. KyberSwap Classic's Dynamic Market Maker (DMM) is a modified version of the traditional AMM model widely used. Instead of a flat fee for each pool, the DMM dynamically adjusts LP fees based on prevailing market conditions. When the market is highly volatile, fees will increase to better reflect greater risks. When the market is stable, fees decrease as volatility drops. The DMM automatically recalculates fees by analyzing on-chain volume data for each liquidity pool. The second feature of the DMM is a programmable price curve called Amplification (AMP). The AMP allows a liquidity pool to mimic higher levels of liquidity without needing more tokens. LPs set their own AMP based on the token pair type. Pairs with greater correlation like stablecoins have higher AMP, while more volatile pairs will have lower AMP. The second feature, KyberSwap Elastic, is a tick-based AMM with concentrated liquidity, similar to Uniswap V3. Like Uniswap, users add liquidity to a specific price range and receive an NFT in return that represents their share of the pool. The difference with KyberSwap Elastic is that it auto-compounds the trading fees using a reinvestment curve. Lastly, there is also a KyberSwap Aggregator that serves to provide the best rates for traders across several third-party DEXs like Uniswap and Curve.
KyberSwap Classic uses its DMM and AMP features to ensure healthy liquidity. KyberWap Elastic leverages concentrated liquidity, can auto-compound fees, offers multiple fee tiers, and Just In Time (JIT) protection to help LPs maximize their yield.
KyberSwap Classic leverages a dynamic fee on each liquidity pool that self-adjusts based on market conditions. KyberSwap Elastic has five different fee tiers including 0.08%, 0.01%, 0.04%, 0.3%, and 1%. LPs can select the fee tier they want taking into account how correlated the token pair is. The protocol does not charge any fees for using the DEX aggreagtor.
