What is Uniswap? 

Uniswap is a widely used decentralized trading protocol, renowned for its role in enabling automated trading of decentralized finance (DeFi) tokens.

Uniswap launched back in November 2018 but has earned substantial recognition this year as a result of the DeFi phenomenon and related surge in token trading. Uniswap intends to maintain automated token trading and keep it completely open to anyone who holds tokens, whilst enhancing the effectiveness of trading versus that on traditional exchanges.

Uniswap produces more efficiency by resolving liquidity issues with automated solutions, averting the troubles which afflicted the first decentralized exchanges.
In September 2020, Uniswap created and awarded its own governance token, UNI, to past users of the protocol. This added both the potential for profitability and the ability for users to shape its future — an attractive aspect of decentralized entities.


Uniswap was created initially as a plan to introduce AMMs on Ethereum to a wider audience. The creator of the platform is Hayden Adams, who also works as an Ethereum developer. 

Adams has worked on several projects while completing the final developments of Uniswap, his work being directly influenced by the creator of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin. Adams has also previously stated that the original idea for the Uniswap platform arose from one of Buterin’s blog posts.
