Uniswap's rising user activity has this effect on UNI

Share this article

  • Uniswap experienced rising user activity and achieved 300 million swaps on its protocol.
  • The DAO explored a collaboration with Zero Protocol to enhance its ecosystem.

Uniswap [UNI], a dominant player in the cryptocurrency exchange sector, witnessed a resurgence in activity of late. Despite facing challenges and a plateau in growth during tough market conditions, Uniswap was now showing signs of renewed vitality.

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

Activity spikes

According to data from Token Terminal, the daily active users on Uniswap rose on 30 September. Moreover, the Uniswap Protocol achieved a significant milestone by completing over 300 million swaps.

These swaps represent transactions on the platform. Notably, the increasing number of swaps indicated a growing interest in decentralized exchanges (DEXes), which also contributed positively to the ecosystem.

However, despite the surge in activity, there’s a worrying trend of falling overall fees. This decline in fee revenue can pose challenges for the sustainability and development of Uniswap.

Governance continues to make progress

Despite these challenges, Uniswap’s governance community remained proactive. Recently, the Uniswap DAO made significant decisions to enhance the protocol’s capabilities.

One notable development was the decision to deploy on the Polygon [MATIC] zkEVM (Zero Knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine). Additionally, a proposal outlined a partnership between the Uniswap DAO and Zero Protocol, focusing on a “friendly fork” collaboration.

This collaboration aimed to create a new version of Uniswap on the Polygon zkEVM while maintaining a cooperative relationship with the original protocol.

It involves integrating Zero Protocol as a friendly fork on the Polygon zkEVM chain, utilizing Uniswap’s established backend infrastructure and receiving support for ecosystem-funded tools.

As part of the alignment of interests, the DAO will receive a 10% token allocation. At press time, the proposal passed by 99.99% of votes.
