About Honeyswap

What is Honeyswap?

Honeyswap is a replica of Uniswap (V2) deployed on the xDai blockchain. xDai is a sidechain of Ether with the same properties as Ether, but it uses a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism. UniSwap is the most popular decentralized exchange (DEX) on Ether. It pioneered the use of the Automated Market Maker (AMM) mechanism. The exchange is governed by the 1hive community using HNY tokens. Its role is to form an automated liquidity protocol through the "constant product" equation. At UniSwap, anyone who deposits tokens in the liquidity pool can become a liquidity provider and receive LP tokens in return. Traders can exchange tokens on the platform, while developers can use smart contracts as so-called "money Lego blocks" to build integrated systems. The community is divided into several different "subgroups" to build separate projects. The decentralized exchange (DEX) itself offers lightning loans, prophecy machines and token exchange services. To use the exchange, users must bridge their ERC-20 tokens from ethereum to xDai.

Who are the founders of Honeyswap?

Honeyswap is governed by a DAO in a decentralized and censorship-resistant manner. Honey tokens are used to vote on governance proposals. The decentralized exchange is based on the 1Hive protocol, which is based on software built with Aragon. Developed by the Swiss nonprofit Aragon Association, Aragon makes its open source architecture available to DAOs.

When will Honeyswap be available?

Where is Honeyswap located?
