Uniswap stated that its aggregator would offer users access to a wider range of NFTs as the platform has 35% more listings than the leading NFTs marketplace.
In addition, powered by Uniswap’s new open-sourced Universal Router contract, the aggregator would allow users to save about 15% on gas costs compared to other NFT aggregators in the market.
Also, the first 22,000 unique wallets that make NFTs purchases on the aggregator from the launch date till 14 December would enjoy gas rebates on their transactions.
