Decentralized exchanges, or DEXs, are exchanges that operate in a decentralized manner, or without any interference from a third party. This type of exchange allows users to make peer-to-peer transactions, or trade cryptocurrencies directly with others without handing over the management of their funds to any intermediary or custodian.

Also, DEXs allow users to retain control of their wallet’s private keys. Let’s take a look at the 10 biggest decentralized exchange cryptocurrencies.

Ten Biggest Decentralized Exchange Cryptocurrencies

We have used the market cap data as of Jan. 28, 2022 (from coinmarketcap.com) to rank the 10 biggest decentralized exchange cryptocurrencies, in reverse order.

10. SushiSwap (>$513 million)

Launched in September 2020, SushiSwap (SUSHI) aims to diversify the AMM (automated market maker), as well as add unique features not previously seen on Uniswap. Its native token is used to reward users’ portions of the fees that the network charges for the transactions occurring in its liquidity pools.

SUSHI is down almost 30% in the last seven days and is presently trading over $4. It has an all-time high of $23.38 (March 2021) and an all-time low of $0.4737 (November 2020).

9. Synthetix (>$534 million)
