Strategic Liquidity Provision in Uniswap v3

  title={Strategic Liquidity Provision in Uniswap v3},
  author={Michael Neuder and Rithvik Rao and Daniel J. Moroz and David C. Parkes},
Uniswap is the largest decentralized exchange for digital currencies. The newest version, called Uniswap v3, allows liquidity providers to allocate liquidity to one or more closed intervals of the price of an asset, instead of over the total range of prices. While the price of the asset remains in that interval, the liquidity provider earns rewards proportionally to the amount of liquidity allocated. This induces the problem of strategic liquidity provision: smaller intervals result in higher… 
Differential Liquidity Provision in Uniswap v3 and Implications for Contract Design
Decentralized exchanges (DEXs) provide a means for users to trade pairs of assets on-chain without the need of a trusted third party to effectuate a trade. Amongst these, constant function market…
Risks and Returns of Uniswap V3 Liquidity Providers
Trade execution on Decentralized Exchanges (DEXes) is automatic and does not require individual buy and sell orders to be matched. Instead, liquidity aggregated in pools from individual liquidity…
Static Replication of Impermanent Loss for Concentrated Liquidity Provision in Decentralised Markets
This article analytically characterizes the impermanent loss of concentrated liquidity provision for automatic market makers in decentralised markets such as Uniswap. We propose two static…
Concentrated Liquidity in Automated Market Makers
It is examined how the introduction of concentrated liquidity has changed the liquidity provision market in automated market makers such as Uniswap and a number of fundamental concentrated liquidity strategies using historical trade data are quantified.
How Liveness Separates CFMMs and Order Books
A theoretical underpinning for when one should prefer a CFMM to an order book is provided and it is demonstrated that application-level liveness interacts with consensus liveness in a non-trivial manner.
Replicating Liquidity Provision Strategies in Uniswap
By estimated the liquidity space of the 0.03% USDC-ETH-Pool of Uniswap v3, we investigated the conditions under which a liquidity provider replicating the behavior of other providers is profitable,…


Dynamic Curves for Decentralized Autonomous Cryptocurrency Exchanges
One of the exciting recent developments in decentralized finance (DeFi) has been the development of decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges that can autonomously handle conversion between different…

Geometric mean market makers (G3Ms), such as Uniswap and Balancer, comprise a popular class of automated market makers (AMMs) defined by the following rule: the reserves of the AMM before and after…
When does the tail wag the dog? Curvature and market making.
Liquidity and trading activity on constant function market makers (CFMMs) such as Uniswap, Curve, and Balancer has grown significantly in the second half of 2020. Much of the growth of these…
Optimal Fees for Geometric Mean Market Makers
This work develops a framework for determining the value to LPs of supplying liquidity to a CFMM with fees when the underlying process follows a general diffusion, and illustrates the methodology by showing that an LP with mean-variance utility will prefer a G3M over all alternative trading strategies as fees approach zero.
Improved Price Oracles: Constant Function Market Makers
This paper focuses on the analysis of a very large class of automated market makers, called constant function market makers (or CFMMs), which includes existing popular market makers such as Uniswap, Balancer, and Curve, whose yearly transaction volume totals to billions of dollars.
Uniswap v2 Core
This technical whitepaper explains some of the design decisions behind the Uniswap v2 core contracts. It covers the contracts’ new featuresβ€”including arbitrary pairs between ERC20s, a hardened price…
Sequential Quadratic Programming
Since its popularization in the late 1970s, Sequential Quadratic Programming (SQP) has arguably become the most successful method for solving nonlinearly constrained optimization problems. As with…
