Following the launch of Uniswap V3 and the market situation, some analysts have aired their views on the exchange as well as the token.
What the Analysts Think of Uniswap
One of the project managers at eToro, Johaness Jensen noted that the new structure put in place on the exchange for Constant Function Market Makers (CFMM) has contributed to the success and adoption of this new platform. On V3, liquidity providers have more options to offer bounded liquidity unlike in V2.
Elias Simon who is a seasoned protocol specialist added that the Uniswap upgrade will speedily attract more capital from liquidity providers and will lead to a more capital-efficient DeFi ecosystem.
One of the co-founders of Biconomy, Aniket Jindal revealed that despite the outrageous gas fees on the platform, new users keep on tripping to the exchange for transactions. This is a positive sign and in the near future, as the developers and founders look to find innovative ways of reducing fees, the exchange will further experience an increased adoption.
The decentralized exchange was founded in 2018 and has since then experienced two upgrades. The version 2 of the exchange was launched last year and 2021 has welcomed the version 3 of the exchange. With the constant improvements and innovations, Uniswap will keep getting better and more users will adopt the DeFi project.
