What is Uniswap V3?

Uniswap V3 is a decentralized exchange (DEX) that operates on multiple blockchains, including Ethereum and other Ethereum-compatible networks. It allows users to trade various cryptocurrencies in a decentralized and trustless manner, eliminating the need for a centralized exchange.

Uniswap V3 utilizes an automated market maker (AMM) model, where the price of assets is determined by the ratio of tokens in a liquidity pool, rather than the traditional supply and demand dynamics of buyers and sellers. This ensures faster and more efficient trading, often with lower fees compared to centralized exchanges.

Uniswap V3 introduces exciting new features such as concentrated liquidity, where liquidity providers can specify price ranges for their contributions. This results in improved capital efficiency and potentially higher returns. Additionally, Uniswap V3 allows for the creation of custom fee structures and provides enhanced flexibility for liquidity providers.

Operating across multiple chains, Uniswap V3 expands its reach and usability, offering users the ability to trade on various blockchain networks. By creating and contributing to liquidity pools, users can earn trading fees in the form of UNI tokens, incentivizing liquidity provision and helping to create more liquid markets for trading.

What is Liquidity Mining?

Liquidity mining, also known as yield farming, is the act of providing liquidity via cryptocurrencies to decentralized exchanges (DEXs). Since the primary goal of an exchange is to be liquid, DEXs seek to reward users willing to bring capital to their platform.

Most DEXs are decentralized by replacing order books with an Automatic Market Maker (AMM). An AMM is a smart contract that regulates trading. Since smart contracts are decentralized, users do not have to trade the order book of an exchange. Instead, they effectively trade with other users.

The AMM collects these fees and grants them to each liquidity provider (LP) as a reward. Therefore, the DEX offers a symbiotic ecosystem where each group of users helps each other. While the token swapper pays a small fee to trade on a decentralized exchange, the liquidity provider earns money for providing the liquidity that the first user will need.

How to add liquidity?

Uniswap V3 liquidity pools allows users to trade SPACE with other assets on the Arbitrum network.

In this step-by-step guide, you will learn how to add Space Token to a liquidity pool on Uniswap.

First, you will need to have Space Token (SPACE) and Ethereum (ETH) in your Web3 Wallet on the Arbitrum Network.

1- Once you have these tokens, you need to go to the pool page and connect your Web3 wallet that contains your SPACE and ETH.

Arbitrum xSPACE-ETH Pool Page is https://app.uniswap.org/add/0x1D1498166DDCEeE616a6d99868e1E0677300056f/ETH/500?minPrice=0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000029395&maxPrice=340190000000000000000000000000000000000&chain=arbitrum

By selecting the “Full range” option, liquidity providers can ensure that their liquidity will be utilized even in volatile market conditions, reducing the risk of impermanent loss. This setting allows the liquidity provider to specify a wider price range for the pool, which can result in a safer and more stable position.

Low price must show ‘0’ and High Price ‘∞’

4- Enter the amount you want to add to the liquidity pool. You need to provide SPACE and ETH in a 50/50 ratio (for example, $20 in SPACE and $20 in ETH).

Uniswap will automatically ensure that the 50/50 ratio is respected.
