“The Protocol’s greater market depth demonstrates that crypto-native [automatic market maker – AMM] market structure can surpass order-book exchanges and transform traditional financial market structure to be more liquid, stable, and secure,” the decentralized exchange wrote in a comment on Twitter.

The research was conducted by Dan Robinson, head of research at crypto investment firm Paradigm, as well as Gordon Liao who is a researcher at Uniswap.

In the report, the two researchers wrote that they have also found many stablecoin pairs – including USD coin (USDC) and tether (USDT) – to have deeper liquidity on Uniswap than on its centralized competitors. “For USDC/USDT, Uniswap v3 has about ~5.5x more liquidity than Binance,” the report said.
