What is Uniswap?
Uniswap is the largest decentralised exchange (DEX) in the crypto space.
It leverages multiple crypto assets, including its native UNI cryptocurrency, to provide a service similar to a traditional exchange. Uniswap has no one central operator or administrator, making it fully decentralised.
Unlike most exchanges, designed to take fees, Uniswap is designed to function as a public good, a tool for the community to trade tokens without middlemen. Also, Uniswap uses a simple math equation and pools of tokens and ETH to do the same job.
How does it work?
Uniswap’s network is designed to facilitate the buying and selling of crypto assets in a way that mirrors a traditional exchange.
It does this by using smart contracts, which allow users (called liquidity providers) to deposit crypto assets into pools. These smart contracts then allow other users (called traders) to buy and sell these assets.
