SushiSwap vs Uniswap v3

SushiSwap Overview

SushiSwap is a Decentralized Exchange using an AMM protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain. In the beginning, Sushi was a forked version of Uniswap. However, it has maintained the worth-keeping features of Uniswap and added financial services to compete against other DEXs.

As time goes on, besides being a DEX, Sushi also provides users with other financial products claimed to be Michelin star-worthy that diversify its ecosystem, such as Kashi Lending/Leverage, BentoBox dApps, Miso - launching platform, Farm, etc.

Currently, SushiSwap is gradually growing to become one of the leading platforms with the highest TVL and incredible trading volume.

Create an Ethereum Wallet on Coin98 Wallet

Users can create an ERC-20 wallet or import an existing wallet from another platform into the Coin98 Wallet.

Since SushiSwap is built on the Ethereum blockchain, users need to create or import Ethereum Wallet to use Sushi’s services.

If users are currently using the Coin98 Wallet, they can re-import their multichain wallet to automatically update their own Ethereum (ERC-20) wallet as well as other new wallets available in the latest version!

Remember to transfer all assets to the ERC-20 wallet before trading.

In case users accidentally transfer money to the TRC20, BEP20, or SPL wallets, Coin98 Wallet’s Cross-chain Bridge function will support converting tokens to ERC20 directly in the app instead of transferring them back to Binance and then withdrawing ERC20 tokens to their wallet. This is one of Coin98 Wallet's technological improvements to make it easier to trade on SushiSwap.

Preparing ETH for the gas fee

Ethereum blockchain uses ETH tokens for gas fee. Therefore, in order to trade ERC-20 tokens on SushiSwap, users must have a sufficient amount of ETH in their wallets.

Currently, the transaction fee on SushiSwap is approximately 0.30% of the trading amount. Within this, Liquidity Providers receive 0.25% and the rest of 0.05% to SUSHI token holders who staked in the SushiBar (farm xSUSHI).
