$BKN liquidity deployed on Uniswap V3

$BKN liquidity deployed on Uniswap V3

We are excited to announce Brickken’s transition from Uniswap V2 to Uniswap V3. This move will not only favor liquidity providers but also the Brickken Ecosystem as a whole.

With a 1% Fee structure awarded LPs, and features such as concentrated liquidity provision giving higher capital efficiency, $BKN Holders are incentivized to provide liquidity to the Uniswap Pool. 

What is Uniswap V3 & How is it Different from Uniswap V2

Uniswap V3 represents the latest iteration in the evolution of one of the most popular decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms for swapping cryptocurrencies. Building on the success of its predecessors, V3 introduces several key innovations aimed at improving liquidity provision and trading efficiency.

Concentrated Liquidity

One of the hallmark features of Uniswap V3 is concentrated liquidity. Unlike Uniswap V2, which spreads liquidity across an entire price range, V3 allows liquidity providers (LPs) to allocate their capital to specific price ranges. This targeted approach enables LPs to maximize their capital efficiency, potentially earning more fees with less capital deployed.

Multiple Fee Tiers

Uniswap V3 introduces multiple fee tiers, allowing LPs to be compensated according to the risk they undertake. Different pools can now have different fee levels (0.05%, 0.3%, and 1%), enabling traders to choose pools that best match their trading strategy and risk tolerance. This flexibility was not available in Uniswap V2, which had a fixed fee structure.

Improved Price Oracles

The introduction of more sophisticated price oracles in V3 enhances security and reduces the potential for manipulation. These oracles provide high-quality price data that is vital for a wide range of DeFi applications, making them more reliable and accurate than those in V2.

Advanced Range Orders

Uniswap V3 offers an innovative feature called range orders, which function like limit orders in traditional finance. This allows users to specify the price at which they want to buy or sell a token within a certain range. This feature adds a strategic layer to trading that wasn't available in V2, offering traders more control over their orders.
