Uniswap’s Layer-2 (L2) ecosystem had a record transaction volume of over $200 billion in February 2024, a notable milestone in the decentralized finance (DeFi) industry.

The significant increase in volume, which resulted in a 280% rise from February 2023, demonstrates the increasing acceptance and utilization of decentralized exchanges by cryptocurrency traders and investors.

The rise in transaction volume has impacted the price movement of Uniswap’s native token, UNI, resulting in a 15% value appreciation.

Yet, the price has decreased, and UNI is now trading at $12.22, showing a slight 5% rise in the past 24 hours. The general sentiment remains optimistic despite the adjustment, boosting UNI’s value and promoting growth and stability in the DeFi industry.

Uniswap V4, an advanced version of the exchange’s non-custodial, non-upgradeable, and permissionless automated market maker protocol, is scheduled to launch in the third quarter of this year.

The UNI Foundation proposes a protocol governance upgrade to distribute protocol fees to UNI token holders. Voting for this proposal will be available until March 7.

This action is considered a crucial step in Uniswap’s efforts to strengthen its user community and establish itself as a prominent decentralized exchange platform in the decentralized financial sector.
