There is a problem getting the chart data

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.

Uniswap (UNI) is an Ethereum-based (ERC-20) token that facilitates the governance of the Uniswap protocol, a network of decentralized 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 decentralized 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 centralized 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 decentralized exchange (DEX) trading is roughly 42%.
