A DEX or decentralized exchange is a peer-to-peer exchange, on which users can trade cryptocurrency assets without the involvement of a centralized intermediate. This allows for faster transactions, as no KYC is required for trading. 

Here are the top 5 DEX by trading volumes according to Coingecko:

  • Uniswap

Founded in 2018 and is considered as tne of the most popular decentralized exchanges, Uniswap ranks number 1 on this list. 

The 24hr volume of Uniswap is $779,337,234 and the pair with the highest 24hr volume is USDC/ETH, at $147,656,695. Uniswap also offers the highest number of tokens, 1524 tokens and the highest number of token pairs, 2418 pairs. Uniswap holds 32.5% of the market share by volume.

Uniswap applies a fee of 0.30% per transaction and aims to reduce the fee to 0.25% in the future. We would highly recommend Uniswap if you are looking for a DEX with a high trading volume and a large variety of tokens and trading pairs


  • SushiSwap
