What is Sushiswap?
Sushiswap is a cryptocurrency exchange where you can swap different tokens/cryptocurrencies. This is an AMM or automated market-making decentralized exchange. This is presently running on the Ethereum Blockchain. It is also a documentation site project that is run by a community and by their votes. The official core team of the company does not handle or manage this site.
It is kind of an extended version of Uniswap which has been launched in this year 2020. It is referred to as an evolution of the Uniswap protocol design. On the main design of the Uniswap, makers of Sushiswap added community-based features to provide further benefits to the traders and investors.
Sushiswap being so popular must have some great features, what do you think? Let’s take a look into the same –
- Incentives to the liquidity providers: The liquidity providers who provide liquidity to the pool earn incentives not just in the form of trading fees but also Sushi tokens. You can further earn protocol’s fee on these tokens which will let you earn without even providing any further liquidity to the Sushi pool.
- Distribution of tokens: The liquidity providers having Uniswap LP tokens can stake the same and earn Sushi Tokens as well. On this, they can get rewards as well and earn tokens. With every block, hundred Sushi tokens will be created. These tokens will be distributed amongst the stakers of the pool.
- Distribution of rewards: While in Uniswap, 0.3% of the trading fees goes to the liquidity providers, here 0.25% directly goes to them and the remaining 0.05% is converted to Sushi and then distributed amongst the token holders.
- Security Audit: The Sushiswap exchange’s security is quite good. It is safe for users. They also invite certain firms to audit their security to have better safety measures for the users.
- Smart Contracts: The smart contracts written by Sushiswap have quite a fair test coverage. They continue to test their smart contracts to find out if there is any issues and to resolve the same at the earliest.
- Liquidity Migration: Sushiswap has an added feature of migrating the tokens staked for liquidity in this platform. These tokens are migrated to the Sushiswap contracts. This is done to initiate a new liquidity pool for the token holders. Here both the stakers and the token holders are benefitted as stakers will continue to receive the rewards in the form of Sushi tokens.

Is Sushiswap Safe & Secure

Never put up more money than you can afford to lose. Furthermore, due to Ethereum’s extraordinarily high gas prices, smaller deposits may require a significant amount of farming before they can make a profit.

PayPal and Visa Lead $300M Funding for Blockchain Capital
Blockchain Capital remains a major tech backer in the DLT space with investments in numerous crypto and DLT projects.
Fund V with $300M Funding
According to a press release published on Monday (June 22, 2021), Blockchain Capital has closed funding for its Fund V LP. The capital raise reportedly drew participation from several high-profile backers including global payment giants Visa and PayPal.
Capped at $300 million, Blockchain Capital’s latest fund was oversubscribed likely pointing to the continued appetite for DLT-related funding despite the current crypto market downturn. Apart from Visa and PayPal, university endowments, hedge funds, family offices, and pension funds also participated in the capital raise.
Bart Stephens, co-founder and managing partner at Blockchain Capital commented on the closure of the fifth VC fund, stating:
“We are incredibly honored to welcome a world class group of investors into Fund V who appreciate the value of a firm dedicated to a single industry. As founders ourselves, we know how hard it is to build companies, protocols and, indeed, a whole new industry.”
Spokespersons for both Visa and PayPal stated that their support for Blockchain Capital was part of efforts to boost innovation in digital finance. According to Jose Fernandez da Ponte, vice president and general manager of blockchain, crypto and digital currencies at PayPal:
“Investing in Blockchain Capital’s new fund allows us to engage with the entrepreneurs driving the future of the decentralized economy and the new wave of financial services.”
Serial Blockchain Backer
Blockchain Capital is a serial investor in the crypto and DLT space. The company’s portfolio of projects cuts across several facets of the emerging industry including United States-based exchange giants like Coinbase and Kraken.
Blockchain Capital’s investment portfolio also extends to the decentralized finance market arena, backing projects like Aave, UMA, and Nexus Mutual.
Since securing about $2 million in funding from Blockchain Capital and other investors back in May 2018, OpenSea has been able to attract additional investments, including a $23 million injection as reported by CryptoPotato back in March.
Ethereum, MATIC, Solana Price Analysis: 22 June
With a depreciation of 8.1% in 24 hours, the global crypto-market cap fell to 1.31 trillion at press time. Following Bitcoin’s footsteps, most altcoins in the market have been struggling within the bearish zone throughout the weekend. Ethereum and Solana, for instance, fell below their respective support levels. MATIC, on the contrary, while it moved south too, stayed above its support.
Ethereum failed to stay afloat above the $2,250 support level, with the alt trading at $1902 at press time. In case the coin doesn’t fall further, it could see resistance near $2055. The second-largest coin by market capitalization noted a decline of 27.2% over the past week.
ETH’s charts pictured a bearish crossover on 15 June and despite the price recovering slightly on 20 June, the MACD’s histogram underlined bearish momentum. The Bollinger Bands diverged in the early hours of 21 June, meaning that there could be a hike in price volatility.
The Chaikin Money Flow neared the equilibrium mark – A finding that predicted an even amount of capital outflows and inflows. Alas, at press time, capital outflows slightly exceeded inflows.
MATIC showed promising recovery from 12 June to 15 June post the crypto market crash. However, it failed to hold on to the same momentum and prices dipped soon after. Worth noting though that the alt had not breached its crucial support level of $1.04, unlike other altcoins, at the time of writing when MATIC was priced at $1.06.
A slight dip in prices would mean that MATIC too would break past the $1.04 support level. The Bollinger Bands were observed to be diverging, a sign of steep price volatility in the near term.
Finally, the MACD’s histogram gave bearish signals for the whole week while the Awesome Oscillator suggested that bearish momentum was building up. That being said, it did read a few scattered bullish trading sessions in between.
SOL breached its $31 support level in the last 24 hours and then broke past its $24 support level too. It was priced at $23.66, at the time of writing. The alt somehow had managed to recover briefly in the last 48 hours, however, it did see a decline of 24.1% soon after.
The market has been seeing intense selling pressure over the last few days. At press time, the coin had fallen below the 30-mark on the Relative Strength Index, a development which meant that the alt had hit the oversold and undervalued zone.
The Awesome Oscillator suggested that bearish momentum was continuing to build up on the charts. Finally, the widening of the Bollinger Bands projected a hike in price volatility.
