Sushi announces expansion to Aptos blockchain

Quick Take

  • Sushi will be operating its decentralized exchange on the Aptos blockchain.

Sushi is expanding to the Aptos blockchain, marking the first time the decentralized finance project has integrated with a blockchain that is not natively compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

As part of the expansion, Sushi's version 2 automated market maker (AMM) will be integrated onto the Aptos network.

“This integration marks the first non-EVM chain for Sushi,” the Sushi team said in a statement. “The first-ever non-EVM integration with Aptos is key to advancing Sushi’s goals for cross-chain and multi-chain prominence.”

Major EVM chains where Sushi already operates include Ethereum, Fantom, Polygon, Arbitrum, BNB Chain and others.

Backed by venture firm Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), Aptos is a Layer 1 blockchain. Created by former Meta employees, it provides developers with the ability to create decentralized apps using Move, a Rust-based programming language.
