mission & key concepts

The Uniswap Protocol is the largest decentralized trading and automated market making protocol (often called a DEX, “Decentralized Exchange”) on Ethereum.

current challenges

1/ A growing network of DeFi Apps, ecosystem development

2/ Provide the Superpowers for DeFi developers. Let them Build Defi apps and tools on the largest crypto project on Ethereum.

3/ Improve automated market making

4/ Explore scaling solutions

5/ Emphasis on governance: keep the protocol community governance effective and clear:

  • Uniswap's long term success is closely tied to its ability to attract the best available community talent and to engage in effective long-term, decentralized decision-making.
  • Expansion of governance requires both improved tooling (see Sybil) and focused initiatives like governance's Uniswap Grants Program.
  • As a result of the active participation in governance by thousands of delegates, the Uniswap core team members plan to participate more directly in governance in their personal capacity.
  • Additionally, the core team may delegate votes to others or themselves. Governance efforts will continue to be community-led.
