What is SushiSwap (SUSHI)? 

SushiSwap (SUSHI) is an automated market maker (AMM). AMMs are decentralised exchanges that use smart contracts to create markets for any given pair of tokens, a desired tool among cryptocurrency users. 

SushiSwap launched as a fork of Uniswap in September 2020. Uniswap is an Ethereum (ETH) based decentralized exchange which allows its users to both supply liquidity to earn passive income or exchange between various assets. The AMM that has become a part of decentralized finance (DeFi) movement and associated trading boom in DeFi tokens. SushiSwaps goal is to diversify the AMM market and add additional features not previously available on Uniswap, such as increased rewards for network participants via its native token, SUSHI. 

Sushi is a community-driven organization built to solve what might be called the “liquidity problem.” One could define this problem as the inability of disparate forms of liquidity to connect with markets in a decentralized way, and vice versa. The platform takes a 0.3% cut from transactions occurring in its liquidity pools, while its SUSHI token is used to reward users portions of those fees. SUSHI also entitles users to governance rights. 


Little is known about the founder of SushiSwap who identified himself as a pseudonymous entity – Chef Nomi. The project has two other pseudonymous co-founders, sushiswap and 0xMaki, also known as just Maki. Between them, they handle SushiSwap’s code, product development and business operations. 

More recently, de facto ownership of SushiSwap was passed to Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO of derivatives exchange FTX and quantitative trading start-up Alameda Research.
