Concentrated liquidity has emerged as a game-changer in the DeFi ecosystem, and Sushi is at the forefront of its adoption. The focus of v3 is predominantly on Concentrated Liquidity, along with a series of improvements. Let’s break it down:

What is Concentrated Liquidity?

Concentrated Liquidity allows liquidity providers (LPs) to concentrate their funds in a smaller price range around the current market price, instead of evenly distributing them on the curve. Concentrated liquidity pools offer several benefits:

Capital Efficiency:
Concentrated liquidity pools enable LPs to deploy their capital more efficiently compared to traditional liquidity pools. LPs can provide liquidity with fewer tokens, covering a narrower price range. This means that LPs can profit more from the specific price range where most trading activity occurs, in contrast to the broader price range required in traditional liquidity pools. The focus on the most traded price range allows LPs to optimize their capital utilization and maximize their potential returns.

Reduced Slippage:
By concentrating liquidity in a smaller price range, the spread between buy and sell orders is significantly reduced. This reduction in spread translates to lower slippage for traders, allowing them to execute trades with greater precision. As a result, traders can enjoy improved trading volume and liquidity, enhancing their profit potential.

Reduced Impermanent Loss:
Concentrated liquidity pools on Sushi significantly reduce impermanent loss for liquidity providers (LPs). By concentrating liquidity around the current market price, LPs can narrow down the price range, minimizing their exposure to volatile price swings and optimizing their capital utilization.

Smart LP Management Integrations

Smart Pools by Steer:

While the benefits of v3 Concentrated Liquidity (CL) pools are widely recognized, it's important to acknowledge that active management is crucial, particularly when dealing with highly volatile tokens. This is where the Smart Pools by Steer Protocol come into play, offering enhanced management capabilities and risk mitigation.

Steer Protocol's Smart Pools provide advanced features and LP strategies to simplify the management process for LPs within a few clicks. By leveraging advanced automation and intelligent algorithms, Steer simplifies LP management, reducing the time and effort required for active portfolio management. LPs can enjoy benefits such as optimized capital allocation, risk mitigation strategies, and seamless integration with Sushi's ecosystem. The feature is currently available on the Steer UI which will be soon available natively on Sushi.

Smart strategies by Gamma v2:

Addressing the same issue of v3, Sushi v3 Concentrated Liquidity is now live on Gamma v2 to offer automated LP management with smart strategies like "Narrow," "Wide," and "Stable," each suited for varying risk levels and market conditions, allowing LPs to maximize their earnings with less time and risk. Merkl by Angle Protocol, also integrated in Gamma, enables LPs to claim $SUSHI rewards without staking their LP positions. Currently, it's on Polygon and Arbitrum. Try it now!

Innovative Routing

The v3 release includes a brand new route processing contract for our in-house smart order routing system, Tines.
Together, Tines and the new route processor (RouteProcessor3) unify liquidity across all of Sushi by enabling pools of all types to interact with each other, effectively creating a large pool of liquidity to trade against. Tines will construct the most cost-efficient route for a swap to take based on the current conditions, then will execute the swap that has the lowest price impact. This design ensures users get the cheapest swaps possible with maximum capital-efficiency.

How to LP on Sushi V3?

Getting started with Sushi's concentrated liquidity pools is straightforward:

  1. Visit Sushi.com/pools: Head to the Sushi website and navigate to the "pools" section. Here, you'll find access to Sushi's concentrated liquidity pools.

  2. Create Position: Select the network of your choice from the available options. Sushi currently supports concentrated liquidity on multiple networks, including Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, BSC, and more.

  3. Set Fee Tier and Price Range: Choose the fee tier for your pool, ranging from 0.01% to 1.00%. Lower fee tiers suit more stable pairs, while higher tiers are better for volatile pairs. Then, define your desired price range for providing liquidity by specifying the minimum and maximum values. This range determines the degree of price fluctuations you expect over time.

  4. Preview and Confirm: After defining the price range, set the initial price within that range, and enter the desired amount of liquidity for each asset. Review the pool details in the preview, ensuring everything is correct. If satisfied, click "Add Liquidity" to create the concentrated liquidity pool.
