What is SushiSwap?

What is SushiSwap?

SushiSwap is a decentralized exchange (DEX) based on the Ethereum network and powered by customized automated market maker (AMM) smart contracts.

The use of the AMM model enables SushiSwap to solve liquidity problems. In addition to token swap services, SushiSwap offers yield farming, an ability to stake the protocol’s token SUSHI, lending and new token offerings.


SushiSwap was launched in August 2020 by anonymous developers hidden behind pseudonyms "Chef Nomi," "OxMaki" and "SushiSwap." Little information on the project’s founders was available, apart from their Twitter accounts.

In September 2020, Chef Nomi unilaterally withdrew one-quarter of the project's developer funding pool, a sum worth more than $13 mln at that time, causing major controversy in the crypto community. Following the ensuing accusations of fraud, Chef Nomi returned the funds and made an apology.
