Uniswap is a cost effective option for ERC20 token projects looking to list on a decentralized exchange that has real liquidity and consequently a large pool of organic traders. Unlike a centralized exchange Uniswap uses an automated market maker (AMM) which makes traditional market making and algorithmic trading strategies redundant on its platform as Uniswap does not have a “spread” and traditional order books.
However, some cutting edge algorithmic trading firms have developed automated trading bots which allow token projects to generate a profit by capitalizing off arbitrage opportunities between Uniswap and centralized exchanges as well as by automating other trading strategies that are outlined below.
By maintaining a tight spread on the large centralized exchanges where your token is listed you prevent arbitrage opportunities between Uniswap and those centralized exchanges (CEX’s). This can be achieved by working with an algorithmic trading firm (also called a crypto market maker) who has an existing connection with the CEX’s where your token is listed.
Conversely, when your token has achieved substantial organic volume and liquidity on the CEX’s where it’s listed (due to proper market making) this will attract new traders and increase liquidity which allows you to profit by capitalizing on arbitrage opportunities between Uniswap and the CEX’s where your token is listed.
Advanced automated trading systems can monitor your tokens Uniswap market at all times and automatically execute orders when a certain target price (or volume, liquidity) is reached to sell off or buy up tokens. Of course, platforms like 1inch provide this functionality as well, but a dedicated crypto market maker can automate any buyup or selloff strategy you can think of.
Uniswap Market Makers
