Uniswap is one of the most popular DeFi platforms in the industry that has attracted a significant number of users and provided numerous services to people worldwide. Many believe that this platform and other DeFi services can be the next big thing in the market.
The DeFi boom showed the world there are still many opportunities in the cryptocurrency market. Lots of services and platforms launched with numerous capabilities to serve more people. Decentralized exchanges are among the most popular ones in this sector because of the opportunity they provide for people. There is more transparency, control over data, and reliability in many of the DEXs compared to traditional exchanges. Uniswap is one of the most attractive ones in this market, now reaching a whopping $500B total trading value. It’s a new all-time high for this platform.
According to the announcement tweet by Uniswap, a good amount of this new all-time high goes to Arbitrum and Optimistic networks.
