Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
Digital currencies are very high risk. Do not invest money you can’t afford to lose. Please consider the suitability of crypto for your individual position before trading.
Uniswap (UNI) is an Ethereum-based (ERC-20) token that facilitates the governance of the Uniswap protocol, a network of decentralised liquidity pools enabling users to safely, efficiently exchange a multitude of ERC-20 based tokens.
The platform’s origin can be credited to Hayden Adams, a veteran programmer and close follower of the work of Ethereum co-founder, Vitalik Buterin.
Uniswap’s automated market maker (AMM) protocol, which is a type of decentralised finance (DeFi) protocol, was launched in November 2018. It seeks to provide investors with permission-less access to a range of DeFi services (borrowing, lending, yield farming). It bears emphasizing that funds that are active in the protocol are not controlled by any centralised intermediary i.e. a lone company’s back office; the program instead designates smart contracts to hold and allocate user funds, finding the ratio between two assets in each pool to determine their price, and thus creating a mechanism allowing funds to be immediately deposited into user’s Ethereum wallets post-trade.
Over the past two years, Uniswap has emerged as Ethereum’s most popular exchange, reliably supporting massive volume. Currently, Uniswap’s market share of total decentralised exchange (DEX) trading is roughly 42%.
