Uniswap v3: Upcoming May 5th New Features

In a blog announcement, Uniswap disclosed a number of explosive new improvements, as well as a rollout date of May 5 for Ethereum and May 12 for its throughput-boosting layer-2 solution Optimism.

The DeFi exchange is stating that the new update will make Uniswap the most flexible and efficient automated market maker.

Uniswap v3 introduces more features:

  • Concentrated liquidity, individual’s positions are aggregated together into a single pool, forming one combined curve for users to trade against
  • Multiple fee tiers, allowing LPs to be appropriately compensated for taking on varying degrees of risk.

These features make Uniswap v3 the most flexible and efficient AMM ever designed:

  • LPs can provide liquidity with up to 4000x capital efficiency relative to Uniswap v2, earning higher returns on their capital.
  • Capital efficiency paves the way for low-slippage trade execution that can surpass both centralized exchanges and stablecoin-focused AMMs
  • LPs can significantly increase their exposure to preferred assets and reduce their downside risk.
  • LPs can sell one asset for another by adding liquidity to a price range entirely above or below the market price, approximating a fee-earning limit order that executes along a smooth curve.

These groundbreaking design improvements will make the gas cost on Uniswap v3 on Ethereum mainnet a slight cheaper than them where on v2. Transactions made on the Optimism deployment will likely be significantly cheaper.
