  • DEX fees decline as competition increases.
  • Despite the growth of protocols, tokens face the heat.

According to data provided by Messari, the fees on DEXs have drastically reduced over time. This decline in fees would help DEXs such as Uniswap, Curve, and SushiSwap attract more users to their respective protocols.

The decline in fees is also an indicator of increasing competition amongst various DEXs.

Battle of the DEXs

However, despite growing competition amongst decentralized exchanges, the overall volume across all the DEX platforms has continued to increase.

Uniswap managed to benefit the most from the growth of the DEX space. Based on Dune Analytics’ data, it was seen that Uniswap’s market share grew from 52% to 72% over the last month.

The number of Uniswap users also grew during this period and increased by 0.11%. The overall number of unique users on the protocol increased by 453,441 at press time.

However, SushiSwap, outperformed Uniswap in this area. The number of unique users on the SushiSwap protocol grew by 0.5% and 666,382 new users used it over the last month.

Although these two DEXs managed to gain new users and capitalize on the growth, the same could not be said for the Curve Finance protocol.

It witnessed a drop in the number of unique users which fell by 0.31% in the last month.

However, Curve managed to improve its revenue by 0.3%. Well, Uniswap also witnessed a surge of 0.68% in terms of revenue.

However, SushiSwap wasn’t able to generate the same amount of growth in revenue. At press time, the revenue generated by it in the last month was $5.32 million- indicating a fall of 0.33%.

No impacts on the token

On the other hand, SUSHI, UNI, and CRV witnessed a decline in network growth. Suggesting that new addresses were losing interest in the tokens.

Moreover, whale interest in these tokens had started to decline at press time. Due to this, the percentage of large addresses holding SUSHI, UNI, and CRV had fallen.

Another area where these DEXs faced problems was the futures and derivatives market. According to Delphi Digitals data, CEXs still continued to dominate the majority of the Options market.

In conclusion, even though the DEXs have made considerable progress, they still have a lot of problems to overcome before they can compete with centralized exchanges.
