You may not know it but there are a lot of technical factors that go into the design of Automated Market Makers (AMM). This is the reason why many have come and gone while others have solidified themselves as the industry standard. Maverick Protocol has a new approach for efficient market-making that’s designed around mitigating slippage and providing a better experience for traders. In that sense, Maverick Protocol is actually bringing something new to the table. This is a rare situation given that most new AMMs simply copy-paste the Uniswap code and sell it off as something new. This might work in the short term. But ultimately it changes nothing for the industry. I’m happy to say that’s not the case with Maverick Protocol.
Many people believe that their interactions with a decentralized exchange (DEX) are a simple and straightforward process. On our end, we simply choose the asset we want to buy and swap it for one that we’re willing to part with. That’s because AMMs are designed to keep things as easy as possible. Too many clicks for the intended result or other technical hindrances and you lose people to an easier product. But, there’s a fine line between what’s good for traders and what’s beneficial to liquidity providers. With both parties playing equally important roles in an AMM. Without traders, there’s no activity, and without liquidity providers, there are no assets. This means the key to a good AMM lies in finding that sweet spot between these two parties. Well, It just so happens that creating a platform beneficial to everyone is the sole focus of Maverick Protocol and the reason it's time to review the project in more detail.
