SushiSwap to Introduce a Novel and Capital Efficient AMM Model, Trident

SushiSwap brings a massive update to their platform, including a new AMM, new pools, and much more!

The Trident Update

The ‘Trident’ title is appropriate and fitting. The new AMM has three major updates or ‘prongs’ for the platform, including BentoBox’s AMM, an expansion of pool options, and intuitive capability updates to the interface. The Trident update is expected to launch in a couple of weeks. 

The massive decentralized exchange (DEX)SushiSwap, recently announced their new next-generation automated market maker (AMM) they call Trident. SushiSwap, for some time, teased that there would be a massive announcement coming soon.

As promised by SushiSwap, on July 20th, they unveiled their new Trident update.


BentoBox’s AMM

The BentoBox AMM is a powerful tool that SushiSwap further plans to integrate into its protocol under the Trident update. The reason why is that BentoBox has architectural capabilities that offer developers the ability to build efficient capital programs. To clarify, Trident is built upon BentoBox.

Besides architectural capabilities, BentoBox offers huge use-cases and value to investors and users. The platform has two major features that have propelled the platform’s popularity. The first is single token approval across its decentralized applications (dApps), saving investors time and money. 

The second and perhaps more noteworthy capability is BentoBox’s powerful algorithmic ‘strategies.’ This feature allows users who hold their tokens in a BentoBox vault to earn a passive income while avoiding paying any fees.

Users can take their tokens, deposit them into a BentoBox token vault, and will begin earning passive yield income. SushiSwap cites that these as just a few of the powerful use-cases BentoBox brings and that their potential for building capital-efficient programs is while Trident has been built upon it. 

Expansion of Pool Options

The Trident update will also bring the SushiSwap platform a wide range of liquidity pool options. There will be a total of 4 new and revamped pools under the Trident update. The four types of pools include a constant product pool, a hybrid pool, a concentrated liquidity pool, and a weighted pool. 

More pools allow for greater asset diversification for investors. Sophisticated investors can now take advantage of more options that best suit their investment style, thanks to the expansion of the added pools.

Updates Interface

The third and final ‘prong’ of SushiSwap’s Trident update is the ‘Tines routing engine’ that looks to make the SushiSwap interface more intuitive and user-friendly. Trades can now be performed without the hassle of taking multiple steps to acquire the desired LP or token. This update should minimize not only slippage but also gas fees.

Users in the past were limited to specific routing styles depending on the trade they wished to make. With Tines, that problem will be alleviated, resulting in much lower price impacts. 

Franchised Pools

Another major update that is not part of Trident’s three prongs is their Franchised Pool offering. SushiSwap looks to bridge centralized exchange with decentralized exchange, allowing various organizations to come and whitelist liquidity providers and swappers. These pools will be separate from the main AMM pools on SushiSwap.
