  • Portfolio management and accounting
  • System integrations and backends


Features include e.g.

Web3-Ethereum-Defi supports

  • Uniswap (both v2 and v3)
  • Sushi
  • Aave
  • Enzyme Protocol
  • dHEDGE Protocol
  • More integrations to come
  • Built-in integration for over 600 smart contracts with precompiled Solidity ABI files

Read the full API documentation). For code examples please see below.

How to use the library in your Python project

Add web3-ethereum-defi as a development dependency:

Using Poetry:

# Data optional dependencies include pandas and gql, needed to fetch Uniswap v3 data
poetry add -D "web3-ethereum-defi[data]"
