What is Sushiswap ?
Sushiswap is a decentralized exchange (DeX) on the Ethereum blockchain. The network was launched in 2020 as a community-based platform. Like other exchanges, Sushiswap is a place for users to buy and sell digital assets. The main difference is its decentralization. Unlike centralized networks, in DeFi decentralized networks, the control of people’s assets is completely in their own hands. Users provide liquidity and gain rewards. They are actually the Sushiswap network marketers. Since there is no centralized community to connect people on this network, people interact with smart contracts, which makes it easier and more secure for people to trade with each other.
