Uniswap is the most popular cryptocurrency decentralized exchange (DEX).

Curve Finance

Curve Finance is a decentralized liquidity pool used for stablecoin trading. Instead of using an order book, Curve Finance uses an AMM (automated market maker) model to match liquidity. As a decentralized and permissionless blockchain protocol, anyone can provide liquidity to one or more of the liquidity pools. The constant product formula of the AMM ensures maximum efficiency while incurring a minimum of slippage for traders. Curve Finance is available multi-chain — on Ethereum, Arbitrum, Aurora, Harmony, Optimism, Polygon, Avalanche, Fantom, xDai, and Moonbeam. Users typically have to bridge funds from Ethereum to these chains to use the Curve protocol. Website:
