Liquidity Book vs Uniswap V3

Liquidity Book vs Uniswap V3

Both Liquidity Book and Uniswap V3 are concentrated liquidity AMMs with some subtle differences:

  • Price ranges are discretized into bins instead of ticks

  • Bin steps (or tick sizes) can be more than 1 basis point

  • Bins use constant sum invariant instead of constant product

  • Liquidity is aggregated vertically instead of horizontally

  • Liquidity positions are fungible

  • Liquidity positions are not restricted to uniform distribution across its price range; they can be distributed in any shape desired

  • Swap fees have fixed + variable pricing, which allows the AMM to charge more fees when market experiences high volatility.
