NFT platforms in China grow 5X in four months despite government warnings

NFTs are still a gray area in China where unlike cryptocurrencies, there’s no official ban on its use, but the authorities have warned investors against the risks from time to time.

Why are protocols like Sushiswap using multiplier 1e10 instead of 1e18?

I’ve been reviewing a protocol that utilizes MULTIPLIER for their calculations which increases the precision because there are no decimal numbers in solidity. That is fine, but I’ve seen a lot of protocols using MULTIPLIER 1e10, so 10^10. This makes no sense to me. Everything in solidity is in wei 10^18. So if we want::Listen

This makes no sense to me. Everything in solidity is in wei 10^18. So if we want to calculate, let’s say 2 ether times 3 ether, we want the result to be 6 ether. So logically, the multiplier should be 10^18 like this:

(2 ether * 3 ether) / 1e18 = 6 * 10^18 or 6 ether

If we use only 1e10 the result isn’t correct in this case:

(2 ether * 3 ether) / 1e10 = 6 * 10^26 or 600000000 ether

This works both with multiplying and dividing numbers:

(10 ether * 1e18) / 2 ether = 5 ether or 5 * 10^18

But if we used 1e10, it wouldn’t work:

(10 ether * 1e10) / 2 ether = 5 * 10^10 or 50000000000

So either I’m missing something big, or it doesn’t make sense.

Thanks for the answers!
