Automated Market Maker
An Automated Market Maker (AMM) is a type of decentralized trading platform that uses smart contracts and algorithms to determine asset prices. Unlike traditional exchanges, AMMs operate without central control or an order book. Instead, they allow anyone to provide or remove liquidity for any cryptocurrency pair at any time.
AMMs often incentivize liquidity providers with rewards in the form of governance tokens.
