QuickSwap is a fork of the originator of Automated Market Makers in the now rapidly expanding DeFi sector of the Cryptocurrency industry, Uniswap. Both, of course, are magical. Only, rather than settling for the magic of unicorns, they’ve opted for the magic of dragons. It’s a much faster kind of magic, currently only available in a land far far away, known by the locals as Layer 2.
QuickSwap, launched in October 2020, is a decentralized exchange built on Polygon, an L2 scaling solution that addresses the problem of the high gas fee on the Ethereum main-net. Regularly topping over 1 billion USD in volume, QuickSwap is one of the biggest DEXs operating in one of the fastest growing ecosystems.
