Decentralized Exchange Trading Volumes Remain Lackluster in the New Year, Uniswap Leads the Way with Daily Swaps
According to statistics, decentralized exchange (dex) monthly trading volumes have dropped significantly since Jan. 2022. After a brief spike in volume in Nov. 2022, dex trade volumes have been lackluster for the past 44 days. As of Jan. 14, 2023, Uniswap version three (V3) has the highest trade volume during the past 24 hours at $1.9 billion and the second-highest total value locked (TVL) at $3.57 billion. Metrics show that Curve holds the second-largest trade volume on Saturday with $399 million in 24 hours and the highest TVL in terms of assets locked in dex platforms, with $4.19 billion locked.
Uniswap V3 Dominates Dex Trading as Decentralized Exchange Volumes Remain Flat
After the first two weeks of Jan. 2023, and as of Jan. 13, 2023, metrics indicate that there has been $15.33 billion in global swaps settled among decentralized exchange (dex) platforms. Last month, dex protocols recorded roughly $43.65 billion in swaps, meaning that during the first two weeks of the new year, 35.12% of last month’s volume has been reached.
With the recent spike in global cryptocurrency market prices, jumping 6.24% in the last 24 hours, dex trade volume has been fueled over the last few days. Uniswap V3 has captured the most volume during the last 24 hours with $1.9 billion in swaps.
24-hour decentralized exchange volume on Jan. 14, 2023, according to coingecko.com.
Uniswap is followed by Curve ($399 million), Balancer ($190 million), Pancakeswap ($176 million), Uniswap Polygon ($164 million), Uniswap Arbitrum ($142 million), Sun.io ($132 million), Uniswap V2 ($91 million), and Uniswap Optimism ($77 million).
It’s worth noting that the top five smart contract platform tokens have captured double-digit gains during the last week. Ethereum jumped 20.6%, Binance Coin (BNB) rose 16.6%, Cardano increased by 25.4%, Polygon has risen by 23.2%, and Solana jumped 68.5% higher against the U.S. dollar over the last seven days.
Total value locked (TVL) ranks by dex platforms according to defillama.com.
The entire smart contract platform coin economy has gained 8.5% against the U.S. dollar in 24 hours. Data also shows that the dex Curve is the top decentralized finance exchange with the most total value locked on Saturday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
At the time of writing, Curve commands a $4.19 billion total value locked (TVL) and Uniswap is just below the protocol with $3.57 billion. Both Curve and Uniswap are followed by Pancakeswap ($2.46 billion), Balancer ($1.61 billion), Sun.io ($578.83 million), Sushi ($448.9 million), and Biswap ($232.3 million).
Out of the 671 dex platforms or protocols that allow a user to swap or trade cryptocurrency, there is $17.4 billion total value locked among the decentralized finance (defi) protocols. Non-custodial exchanges have become a mainstay in the world of crypto assets by allowing users to trade tokens without the need for an intermediary.
While dex platforms have seen trade volumes decline, centralized spot market exchanges have also seen volumes slide during the last few months. The crypto winter has taken no prisoners as far as centralized and decentralized exchange trading volumes are concerned, and Dec. 2022 was especially disappointing.
