About Uniswap

UNI is a governance token for the Uniswap protocol (the “Uniswap Protocol”), a suite of smart contracts that together create an automated market maker on the Ethereum network. The Uniswap Protocol was created by Hayden Adams and was launched in 2018.  

As an automated market maker, the Uniswap Protocol is designed to allow the exchange of tokens on the Ethereum network. Automated market makers are a type of decentralized exchange. Decentralized exchanges can be contrasted with centralized exchanges (such as a stock exchange or a platform like Bitbuy), which generally use a central order book where buyers and sellers create orders organized by price level that are progressively filled as demand shifts. An automated market maker instead functions by replacing the buy and sell orders in an order book market with a “liquidity pool” of two assets, both valued relative to each other. As one asset is traded for the other, the relative prices of the two assets shift, and a new market rate for both is determined. As a result, a buyer or seller trades directly with the liquidity pool, rather than with specific orders placed by other participants on the exchange.

The liquidity pools comprising the Uniswap Protocol are smart contracts in which users of the Uniswap Protocol contribute ERC-20 Tokens. These users, commonly known as “liquidity providers,” lock two assets into each liquidity pool. For example, Uniswap’s AAVE/ETH liquidity pool consists of equal values of AAVE and ether deposits from liquidity providers. Users who trade against assets in the pool pay a fee that is then distributed to all liquidity providers proportionally based on their contribution to the pool.

 By September 2024, there will be 1 Billion UNI tokens in circulation. After the 1 Billion tokens are issued a perpetual inflation rate of 2% annually will take effect.

Uniswap collects fees on each swap or exchange. The fee collected goes into the Treasury. Governance of Uniswap, allows you votes on how to spend the treasury.   

Token distribution currently consists of the following: 60% to Uniswap community members, i.e. users, 21.51% to team members, 17.8% to investors and 0.69% to advisors. The latter three distributions will occur according to a four-year vesting schedule.

UNI is a governance token. Generally speaking, governance tokens are tokens that allow their holders to propose or vote on changes to a crypto asset network or protocol. UNI specifically allows its holders to help govern the Uniswap Protocol by voting on development proposals. Additionally, users who hold at least 1% of the total UNI in circulation are able to make development proposals themselves.
