This decline in NFT activity has impacted the DEX negatively. According to Messari,’s data, the number of unique users on Uniswap had fallen by 9.7% and the number of overall transactions being made on the DEX had declined by 28.87% in the last seven days.

Furthermore, in the image below, it can be seen that after the spike caused by the NFT launch, the daily active addresses for UNI declined. Along with that, UNI’s transaction count and velocity also took a hit.

Interestingly enough, these indicators did not deter whales from investing in UNI.

According to WhaleStats, an organization dedicated to tracking crypto whales, Uniswap had been amongst the top 10 most purchased tokens by the top 1000 Ethereum whales.

This spike in interest can be credited to the increase in active developers on the Uniswap system. 

The ongoing actions in the NFT space may result in interest being regenerated and it could reflect onto UNI’s positive price action.

That said, at the time of writing, UNI was trading at $5.96 and its price had increased by 0.91% over the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
