Where x and y are defined as reserves of certain assets in the pool and c is a constant that cannot be changed. This serves to set the price of the selected token, which means that if the supply of x tokens increases, then the supply of y tokens decreases to maintain a constant value of c. This type of AMM, will always be able to provide liquidity, no matter how large the order sizes or how small the liquidity pool.

As a liquidity provider, you will be rewarded in the form of trading fees to ensure there is always liquidity used by the exchange.
