The economics of providing liquidity

The interaction that liquidity providers have with DefiPlaza is providing liquidity to the exchange, which is then used to allow customers to swap tokens against. At any point in the future, the liquidity provider may decide to withdraw their liquidity back into their own wallets. The question at hand is how much will they get back when they do. To understand what drives profit or loss in a multi-token AMM, let’s look at all components that factor into the value difference when depositing versus when withdrawing.

Fee income in a multi-token AMM

Trading fees are generated by trades taking place against the liquidity held by the AMM. The fee is currently set to 0.1% of the value for every trade on the exchange. If there are more trading volume, there is more fee income. Arguably the most important performance metric for any AMM is the amount of fees generated per amount of liquidity in the AMM. As DefiPlaza saw in the previous article, more liquidity generates less slippage per trade, but at the same time more liquidity means less income per trade for the liquidity providers.

How much liquidity does an AMM actually need to be optimally competitive? Let’s consider the largest UniSwap v2 pool with a USD component (USDC/ETH) as an example. As of July 2021 (when I did this analysis) that had around 320 M$ in liquidity. With the same total liquidity, DefiPlaza would have about 20 M$ per token spread evenly over the 16 tokens. UniSwap uses a 0.3% trading fee. DefiPlaza uses a 0.1% trading fee, so break even in trading fee cost to the consumer happens when DefiPlaza has 0.2% more slippage than UniSwap on any given trade.

Calculating impermanent loss

At the cost side DefiPlaza have impermanent loss (IL) to consider. IL is something many people are aware exists but don’t quite fully understand. Put simply, as the market value of the liquidity reserves held by the DEX changes, arbitrage swaps occur along the x*y=k bonding curve to keep the spot prices on the exchange in balance with prices on the external market. As this happens the tokens held in reserve by the exchange slightly loose value as compared to the same portfolio held outside of the exchange.

The loss is called impermanent because if the relative price between the tokens listed at the AMM returns to the same ratio as it was initially, these losses vanish completely. After one supplies liquidity to an AMM, the impermanent loss for that liquidity position moves up and down over time as the relative token prices change. When the liquidity is withdrawn the impermanent loss is realized into an actual loss. What DefiPlaza need to understand is how IL is likely to develop over time for your liquidity providers.

Liquidity mining

To be a compelling value proposition, the sum of fee revenue minus impermanent loss needs to be competitive as compared to other DEXes where people could provide liquidity. In the early stages after launch it is likely that trading volume will be relatively low. Thus, the revenue side of the equation is uncertain. To incentivise people to provide liquidity in this ramp-up period, DefiPlaza has a liquidity mining program.

Over the period of 1 year, 50M governance tokens are released on quadratic curve (with more tokens releasing in the early stages). In the first 3 weeks this program has been very successful, with liquidity growing steadily and rewards fluctuating from 300% to 1400% over this period. It is expected that the income of the liquidity providers will initially be largely made up of liquidity rewards, ramping down gradually over the year such that at the end of the year the income will consist purely of trading fees.
