  • What is Cyclos (CYS)? What are Cyclos’s features?
  • Cyclos (CYS) Tokenomic and how to buy, store CYS token
  • Is Cyclos (CYS) a good investment?

Let's find out together!

What is Cyclos?

Cyclos is an automated market maker (AMM) that brings Uniswap V3-style concentrated liquidity to Solana. Cyclos, however, is NOT a fork version of Uniswap V3.

What are Cyclos’s features?

Concentrated liquidity: Similar to Uniswap V3, Cyclos allows LPs to provide liquidity in depth within specified price ranges instead of all price ranges while putting far less capital at risk. This is a key advantage of Cyclos (CYS) especially since there has been no other projects having the same model on Solana. This model also marked a substantial improvement between Uniswap V2 and Uniswap V3.

Solid liquidity: Besides having its own pools, Cyclos is also accessible to Serum’s liquidity. As a central liquidity pool, Serum provides liquidity for the whole Solana ecosystem and its own. Cyclos therefore has connections to deeper liquidity and faster order flows.

Fast-lighting transactions and nearly zero gas fees: Built on Sonana, Cyclos is also powered with instant transaction and bargain gas fees.

Comparing Uniswap V3 with Cyclos

In this article, we would like to compare Uniswap V3 with Cyclos. Uniswap V3 was launched for the first time on May 5th. Two weeks since its launch, UniSwap V3 has become the largest DEX on Ethereum and gained more dominance in the DeFi sector.

Multiple fork versions of Uniswap have been created, however, to truly compete with Uniswap V3, new projects should have or add major improvements. Below are some comparisons between Cyclos and Uniswap V3:

Is Cyclos (CYS) a good investment?

Below are some insights/ highlights which hopefully will help market participants make investment decisions.

  • During the 1st Cyclos Community AMA, Cyclos team said that their number one priority in the next six months is to build the most competitive market maker platform on Solana. They aim to create a sustainable community of liquidity providers, traders and partner projects.
  • Flash loans should not be happening to Cyclos. Swaps will not happen directly against Cyclos’s liquidity pools, but are proxied to Serum’s orderbooks.
  • They will also introduce major improvements which allows users, including small holders to earn as much interest as on Solana, especially in a down or uncertain market - the one we are currently in.
