Christanto believes that the Yearn merger gave Sushi a renewed credibility, enabling the project to step through the backlash of the project initiated in August as a Uniswap clone and early on securing TVL with a so-called “vampire” liquidity assault.

By adding yield farming incentives for combinations that had formerly been stimulated by the top DEX in November, Sushi drew more liquidity away from Uniswap.
Christanto says that Sushiswap “has put their past behind,” including the site now relentlessly pushing liquidity and weekly volume between $2 billion and $2.5 billion.
“SushiSwap is evolving from being an exchange to include lending, franchised liquidity pools, cross-chain integrations, and a launchpad. Under #Yearn’s ecosystem, it’ll benefit from new network effects.” The analyst stated that Sushi has little funding for venture capital, is community-driven and “innovate quickly,”
Given the supposed achievement of SushiSwap in luring liquidity suppliers from its key competitor, Uniswap appears very prominent and more than 60% of all distinctive handles that have ever communicated with DeFi are responsible for by DEX.
Although Sushi’s $2.07 billion TVL is almost two-thirds of Uniswap’s $3.18 billion, the overall aggregate consumer base of Sushi is fairly 8% of Uniswap’s. Uniswap’s first version, nevertheless, released in November 2018, implying that before Sushi’s launch, the app had accumulated a total user base of 225,000.
