Introduction ( what is Sushiswap ? )

Sushiswap is a Decentralized blockchain application also known as DAPP. It is a digital exchange where we can deal with blockchain-based assets or tokens ( Cryptocurrencies ).

Decentralized = Non-influenced or controlled by any individual or group

A decentralized exchange offers famous services like Trading, Swapping, and Liquidity pools. Decentralization works upon distributed and peer-to-peer network connections and Sushiswap does in the same way. It provides a way to transact between peers and minimizes the transaction fee and leverages the reward to its users in terms of Sushi tokens.

Key features

  • Sushiswap offers to buy and sell different crypto assets between peers with heavy rewards to uniswap LPs

  • It gives the reward to the liquidity miners by its token named SUSHI.

  • Holding SUSHI, peers, and Liquidity providers are allowed to participate in the protocol improvement (consensus), set the fee structure, vote for a new liquidity pool, or collectively fund grants for the sushi-related project.

  • It is a permissionless platform.


Step 1 − Click on the link

Step 2 − Connect your wallet by clicking on this link and following the instructions below (right-up corner).

Step 3 − Once you have done the above step you’ll get another window pop-up with multiple Crypto wallets. Select the wallet you are using. Here we are going to use Metamask.

Step 4 − When you click on the Metamask icon button you will see another window of Metamask Permission authentication to access your wallet for the further process.

Step 5 − Metamask wallet allows us to create multiple accounts for transactions. After Shushi receives permission, it will prompt you to choose an account in which you would like to operate.

  • To give access to sushi, Metamask will ask for your current credentials.

Step 6 − Your account will be linked to Metamask as soon as you provide your credentials.

Step 7 − Select the token you want to swap, given in the list. In this article, we are using Ether test Tokens (for learning purposes) to wap with Uniswap token.

Step 8 − Enter the amount of ether token to swap with the Uniswap token on the dashboard fields.

Step 9 − As soon as we enter the value of our token it will detect the amount / Value of the other corresponding swapped token.

Step 10 − Swap the tokens by clicking the swap button given and confirm the transaction.

Step 11 − Once the transaction is fulfilled it will be reflected in your account summary.


Till now we have covered a lot of things in sushi and got to know its various terminologies. Now let’s conclude that how much sushi is reliable?

We know so far that sushi is just a copy of UNISWAP with some add-on features which makes it vulnerable but how?

Let’s get into its technical aspect.

We know that sushi uses bootstrapping liquidity, which makes it more vulnerable and less reliable. Because bootstrapping Liquidity pool is a smart pool also known as configurable right pools. And this smart pool is a contract that controls the balancer pool which contains the tokens and is used on the exchange.

These smart pool controllers can change the parameters of the pool−but only in controlled ways. It is, therefore, less trustless than a shared pool.
