RadioShack, a cryptocurrency swap platform, aims to be a go-to protocol for crypto projects of mainstream brands. Its objective is to promote DeFi usage by individuals and large companies.  

According to RadioShack, it will first fix the issues surrounding "liquidity addition" on AMMs, which is to increase the liquidity per pair using the Starfish Topology. This single large node combines all swappable pairs.

The Starfish Topology will allow the RADIO token node to be the central large degree node, thereby boosting the token’s utility. 

The demand for RADIO tokens increases when more tokens are added to Starfish Topology. The token swapping becomes more efficient in the ecosystem when tokens are locked in more pools.
