Curve: the asset-specific automated market maker

Quick Take

  • Curve is an automated market maker that has been optimized for trading between assets that are relatively price stable with one other (e.g. stablecoin-to-stablecoin swaps).
  • In June, Curve facilitated $340.4 million in trade volume, up from $37.8 million in May. 
  • The increase in trading volume was kicked off by demand to liquidity mine Compound’s COMP tokens. Soon, Curve is expected to launch its own CRV token.
