How to Buy Uniswap


What is Uniswap (UNI)?

Created by Hayden Adams in November 2018, Uniswap is the shining light of the DeFi (Decentralized Finance) world. It is a decentralized exchange where users can directly swap tokens or create markets (called liquidity pools) by locking in their tokens and earning yield. The governance token of Uniswap is “UNI.”

Uniswap championed the automated market-making (AMM) mechanism. The AMM uses smart contracts to automate the price matching process and remove the need for an intermediary between a maker and a taker.

What can you do with Uniswap?

Hold Uniswap

Many people buy Uniswap for the profit expectations and benefit from the long-term gains. If you do have a "buy-and-hold" strategy, then we recommend transferring your coins to a cold hardware wallet like Ledger Nano. Having said that, CoinSmart has taken several security measures to ensure user fund protection. These include – mandatory 2FA, withdrawal confirmation emails, cold storage & BitGo user funds insurance.

Buy/Sell/Trade Uniswap

You can buy and sell UNI tokens on CoinSmart’s highly liquid trading platform. You can use CoinSmart’s SmartTrade feature to swap UNI for other coins. You can also send UNI to Uniswap to swap for more tokens.

Stake Uniswap

Stake your UNI tokens with other tokens in Uniswap’s AMM to provide liquidity to pools and earn yield. This is a great way of putting your tokens to work and earning passive income.

Send Uniswap

Uniswap is an Ethereum-based decentralized exchange. So, as long as you have an Ethereum-compatible wallet, you may send and receive UNI tokens.

Participate In Uniswap Governance

Use your UNI tokens to vote on a variety of proposals in the Uniswap platform if you do plan on actively participating in the network governance.
