Decentralized Exchanges (DEX) are, of course, an integral part of the crypto sector. With the collapse of Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX/Alameda empire and other high-profile incidences involving Centralized Exchanges, DEXes have gained even more attention in the past year.

Here is a quick overview of the five most active blockchains, in terms of 7-day DEX volume, and the biggest DEX on each of those chains, according to data from DefiLlama.

1. Ethereum ($10.91B)

  • Top DEX: Uniswap
  • 7-Day Volume: $7.63 billion
  • Share of Total DEX Volume on Chain: 70%

2. BNB Chain ($2.54B)

  • Top DEX: PancakeSwap
  • 7-Day Volume: $2.13 billion
  • Share of Total DEX Volume on Chain: 84%

3. Arbitrum ($1.55B)

  • Top DEX: Uniswap
  • 7-Day Volume: $881 million
  • Share of Total DEX Volume on Chain: 57%

4. Polygon ($1.17B)

  • Top DEX: Uniswap
  • 7-Day Volume: $631 million
  • Share of Total DEX Volume on Chain: 54%

5. Avalanche ($662M)

  • Top DEX: Trader Joe
  • 7-Day Volume: $302 million
  • Share of Total DEX Volume on Chain: 46%

While those figures might not be surprising to Decentralized Finance (DeFi) buffs, it gives an idea of the weight classes of the major contenders in the developing Battle of the DEXes on BNB Chain, as Uniswap, Trader Joe and a host of native challengers are seeking to topple PancakeSwap from its long-held position atop the blockchain.

The chefs at PancakeSwap are responding with plans of their own, most notably a v3 upgrade on BNB Chain as well as expansionary expeditions to other chains, including Ethereum and Aptos.
