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

To make matters worse, the Uniswap community had other bad news to deal with.

Uniswap’s new offering faces a hurdle

Uniswap announced the launch of a self-custodial mobile wallet which will allow users to swap tokens between Ethereum [ETH] mainnet and other layer-2 networks like Arbitrum [ARB], Optimism [OP] and Polygon [MATIC].

Uniswap added that the app will be available as a limited early release to 10,000 users via the TestFlight beta platform because Apple had rejected the final build of the product just before its planned December 2022 launch.

To add to its woes, Uniswap recorded one of the biggest weekly drops in the total value locked (TVL) among the top DeFi protocols, data from DeFiLlama revealed. The TVL failed to show a noticeable growth in February.

The whale accumulation, however, failed to improve the token’s long-term prospects. According to Coinglass, the number of short positions for UNI increased considerably since the start of March.
