When Mirror protocol was created, TFL created Terraswap to facilitate transactions with mirrored assets on the Terra blockchain. It was designed as a bare bones AMM, that would just exist to get the job done.
And it’s been wildly successful.
But now Terra is maturing, and we have a full fledged, modern AMM dex in Astroport, to which significant liquidity has migrated. Right now, Terra’s liquidity is split between both Terraswap and Astroport, which isn’t an ideal situation. Additionally, as liquidity migrates to Astro, the Terrastation wallet’s swap feature runs the risk of heavier-than-necessary slippage for new users that don’t know to check Astroport as well.
So I propose that Terra Station replace Terraswap with Astroport as its swap provider, with an eye to eventually “decommissioning” Terraswap.
