As depicted by the analytics from Token Terminal, a surge in daily active users was recorded on 30th September. This ascension in user engagement was echoed by a remarkable accomplishment – the Uniswap protocol executing over 300 million swaps. Each swap epitomizes a transaction conducted on the platform, with the rising tally underscoring a blossoming interest in decentralized exchanges.
Strategic Forays: A Stepping Stone to Evolved Ecosystem
However, while this momentum is laudable, a discernible downtrend in overall fee revenue raises questions about the long-term sustainability and growth trajectory of Uniswap. Nonetheless, the governance community of Uniswap is not seated on its laurels. There’s a proactive endeavor to bolster the protocol’s capabilities, evident from recent developments.
A prominent move is the engagement between Uniswap DAO and Zero Protocol. The crux of this engagement centers around a “friendly fork” collaboration, envisioned to germinate a new variant of Uniswap on the Polygon’s zkEVM (Zero Knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine), whilst maintaining a congenial rapport with the original protocol. The alliance encompasses integrating Zero Protocol as a friendly fork on the Polygon zkEVM chain, leveraging Uniswap’s robust backend infrastructure, and securing support for ecosystem-funded tools. This synergy culminates in the DAO receiving a 10% token allocation, as affirmed by a sweeping 99.99% approval in the recent voting.
Amidst these developments, the UNI token witnessed a notable upswing in price, trading at $4.54 at the time of reporting. Moreover, an uptick in network growth signifies an enlarging pool of interest from new addresses towards UNI and its burgeoning ecosystem.
