The recent sell-off led to UNI holding the #12 rank on the list of the cryptocurrencies that the top 100 Ethereum whales were holding in the last 24 hours. Nonetheless, UNI’s total amount of holders did go up over the last seven days, which was an optimistic development.

Apart from price, the token’s daily trading volume also went up by more than 57%, reflecting investors’ willingness to trade the token. It was interesting to note that 90% of Uniswap’s trading volume comes from Mainnet and Arbitrum.
