What is Balancer ?
Balancer is an automated market maker and decentralized exchange platform that was launched in March 2020 on the Ethereum blockchain network. This platform is designed as an open and accessible alternative to centralized exchanges and allows users to trade Ethereum (ETH) and assets based on the ERC-20 standard in a trustless and permissionless environment. An automated market maker is a decentralized exchange that uses a mathematical formula to price assets. In other words, unlike traditional exchanges that use an order book and bid/ask system, in automatic market makers, asset prices are determined based on a price algorithm.
Balancer allows users to exchange supported tokens, create a liquidity pool in order to add liquidity to the balancer protocol, and also invest in existing pools for yield farming of transactions. The Balancer cryptocurrency network has been developing since 2018 and its bronze version was launched in 2020. Since then, Balancer has become one of the top 15 decentralized exchange platforms on the Ethereum network in terms of transaction volume and one of the top 10 largest decentralized applications (DApps) running on the Ethereum network in terms of total asset value locked.
