Uniswap leads in volume on Polygon

In a Uniswap post dated 11 September, the platform proudly announced its status as the leading Decentralized Exchange (DEX) on the Polygon network, boasting an impressive weekly trade volume of over $213 million. According to the DEX, this volume represented a substantial 42% share of the total trading activity on the Polygon network.

Furthermore, when examining the Total Value Locked (TVL) ranking of Uniswap’s DEX on Polygon, it was evident that the platform played a significant role. As of this writing, the V3 held a TVL of approximately $73 million on the Polygon network.

The TVL made it the third-highest contributor in terms of TVL among all participants on the Polygon network.

Analyzing the overall Uniswap volume and TVL

According to DefiLlama data, there was a noticeable uptick in Uniswap’s trading volume on 11 September. It reached a significant milestone by surpassing $1.1 billion in daily volume.

This marked a noteworthy achievement as it was the first time during the month that its daily trading volume had exceeded the $1 billion threshold. Until then, the highest recorded volume was approximately $902 million.

However, it’s worth noting that the Total Value Locked (TVL) on Uniswap displayed some signs of a downtrend. As of this writing, the TVL has reached over $3.1 billion.

However, there has been a recent positive development. As of this writing, UNI was trading at approximately $4.1, reflecting a modest increase in value of more than 1%.

 Realistic or not, here’s UNI’s market cap in BTC terms

The consecutive downtrends that Uniswap encountered initially pushed it deep into a bearish trend, a condition highlighted by its Relative Strength Index (RSI). The RSI indicated that UNI had entered the oversold zone.

Nevertheless, as of this writing, the RSI had risen slightly above this oversold threshold, largely attributed to the recent uptick.
