Trader Joe says the new strategy will reduce “Impermanent Loss” (IP), roughly translated as “Temporary Loss”, a problem that many suppliers liquidity level (LP) on other top DEXs suffered during the current downturn in the overall market


account @TheDeFinvestor explains by comparing IP is becoming one of the big hurdles best of Uniswap V3, because it exceeds the swap fee. On the other hand, a study conducted by Bancor (DeFi's original AMM exchange), the team revealed that up to 50% of Uniswap V3 LPs were defunct by IP.

One of the most critical issues of Uniswap V3 is that impermanent loss often exceeds swap fees.


A study effectuated by the @Bancor team showed that 50% of Uniswap V3 LPs lose money.

Liquidity Book solves this problem by introducing variable swap fees.

Other notable values ​​Trader Joe brings in this update are

  • Trading Routers
    : swaps will be rolled over to other AMM pairs when a better price is found (although this shouldn't happen often).
    Protocol fee
  • : a part of the swap fee will be kept for the protocol showing that the AMM liquidity book will solve 2 main problems: IP (unless there is a big change in price, swap fee will exceed IP index and slippage (due to liquidity arrangement in price bins).
    /9 The whitepaper shows that the Liquidity Book AMM will solve 2 main problems:
    - Impermanent loss (unless there's a massive change in price, the swap fees will exceed impermanent loss)



-slippage (due to the arrangement of liquidity in price bins)
