Virtual AMM (vAMM)

By CoinGecko | Updated on Aug 13, 2021
An automated market maker (AMM) is a system that uses automated trading to offer liquidity to the exchange in which it operates. As the “virtual” part of the name implies, the vAMM functions similarly like an AMM but does not contain an actual asset pool. The real asset is instead stored in a smart contract vault that keeps track of all of the vAMM's collateral.
