What is UNI?

Uniswap is a popular, fully decentralized cryptocurrency exchange that runs on the Ethereum Network. Unlike centralized exchanges, a decentralized exchange never holds your crypto. Instead, it utilizes smart contract algorithms to perform an automated exchange. Uniswap has undergone several generations of change and is currently operating on its third version.

Uniswap became popular for pioneering a trading concept called liquidity pools. Previous decentralized exchanges used the order book method, which meant that for a buy or sell order to go through, a waiting seller or buyer that could help complete the order is needed. Additionally, both the price and the quantity must match.

After operating for about a year, Uniswap created a governance token called UNI. A large amount of UNI tokens were distributed in an airdrop to anyone who had used the Uniswap platform before the snapshot date in September of 2020. As UNI tokens are governance tokens, they allow holders to vote on governance changes and funding proposals on the platform.

The importance of decentralized exchanges is projected to grow as the crypto space matures. More trading and transactions will likely become automated, and decentralized smart contract-powered platforms like Uniswap will be positioned perfectly to absorb this new potential source of trading revenue.

What can I do after I buy UNI?

As UNI tokens have seen significant price volatility since their launch, investors looking to follow an active trading strategy might find them a suitable choice for capturing value during price swings.

For those looking to take a longer-term investment strategy with Uniswap, they will need to be aware of the platform's perpetual inflation rate of 2% per year, which starts after four years. This rewards active investors who stake their assets and participate in liquidity pools. On the other hand, passive investors will not benefit from the scheme and might even experience a loss in the value of their assets.

However, if Uniswap tokens are held in an exchange that provides interest like OKX Earn Program or a DeFi protocol, the 2% inflation rate could easily be reduced, counteracted or even surpassed.

OKX is the premier choice for buying, trading and selling Uniswap. The service was built to support the latest generation of digital assets, including classic blue-chip assets like Uniswap.

  • What is a governance token?
    Decentralized applications that want to operate in a headless way (no central office or leadership) still need guidance on how their platform will evolve and change over time. Governance tokens allow these platforms to do this. Holders of the token are given voting rights on proposals and, in many cases, can earn a return based on the profits generated by the platform. In some ways, a governance token is very similar to a traditional stock share.
  • What is Uniswap's 2% inflation plan?
    Uniswap will introduce a 2% inflation scheme, creating and releasing new Uniswap tokens onto the market. The move is to fund the platform's operation and encourage Uniswap holders to stake their Uniswap to capture some of this inflation as yield. However, the inflation plan will not benefit passive Uniswap holders as their token value will be diluted by 2% annually.
  • Will Ethereum network fees always be a problem for Uniswap?
    Most likely not. The Ethereum Foundation guiding the development of the platform has leaders who have openly stated that they are working to lower transaction fees while still maintaining security. However, there is no clear timeline for exactly when this will happen.
  • What are the most popular cryptocurrencies to invest in today?

    Top crypto, based on market capitalization or total circulation value, include Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), USD Coin (USDC), and XRP (XRP).

    However, like all other crypto, the above are also featured with volatility and risks. You should do your own research (DYOR) and evaluate your risk appetite before investing in any crypto.
