Understanding the Undisputable Advantage of SmarDex
In DeFi, Impermanent Loss is a major issue for liquidity providers who expect to earn a return through fees when they provide liquidity on a DEX. Unfortunately, the fees often represent a low annual return percentage and may not be sufficient to offset the Impermanent Loss, resulting in a net loss for liquidity providers. This is a significant problem because liquidity providers are essential to the operation of DEXs. If there are not enough incentives to encourage their participation, the DeFi ecosystem is at risk of failure.
Farming protocols have emerged as a way to incentivize liquidity providers better by allowing them to earn additional tokens by staking LP-tokens. However, these protocols often mint new tokens infinitely, making them unsustainable in the long term. The resulting excessive dilution and constant sell pressure can negatively affect the price of the tokens, making them insufficient as a solution to the IL problem.
Despite the challenges, liquidity providers remain critical to the success of DEXs, and it is essential to find better ways to incentivize their participation to ensure the continued growth of the DeFi ecosystem. Without sufficient incentives, liquidity will gradually disappear, making it disadvantageous for liquidity providers to invest in DEXs that operate in this manner, and the future of these DEXs is uncertain.
As demonstrated in our White Paper, SmarDex has introduced a technology that effectively addresses Impermanent Loss and can even generate Impermanent Gain in many cases. The various scenarios presented suggest that the technology is efficient and that older DEXs like UniSwap will soon become outdated.
