What is a DEX?
A decentralized exchange is a peer to peer exchange that utilizes a set of smart contracts to establish the prices of various cryptocurrencies & digital assets against each other algorithmically.
What is an Automated Market Maker (AMM)?
An automated market maker (AMM) is a popular decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol that utilizes a pricing algorithm to determine the price of an asset instead of using an order book like traditional exchanges. The algorithm used by each AMM varies from protocol to protocol and is largely dependent on the specific use cases targeted by each protocol.
Although each mathematical formula used by each protocol may differ, they all share the same underlying function, which is to determine an asset's price algorithmically. AMMs decentralize the traditional market-making process and make it so that anyone can create a market on a blockchain and/or provide liquidity.
How do AMMs work?
AMMs work similarly to traditional order books in that there are trading pairs for traders or liquidity providers to choose from. The main difference is that with AMMs, a counterparty (opposing trader) is not necessary to complete a trade. Instead, the system utilizes smart contracts to “make” markets.
If typical exchanges are considered peer-to-peer (P2P) exchanges, AMMs can be thought of as peer-to-contract (P2C) exchanges. Because there are no order books, AMMs have historically only offered market orders. Recently, thanks to DEX technology, traders can place other types of orders, such as limit orders, for certain token pairs.
Why are AMMs important?
Automated market makers have evolved to become the backbone of the DeFi ecosystem as they allow decentralized markets to function absent centralized order books and market makers.
In addition to decentralizing the market-making process, AMMs allow anyone with an internet connection, to access crypto markets without needing KYC checks or self-identification.
