The Uniswap (UNI) crypto has recently been on the investors' radar, as evidenced by the significant spike in its price. Even though its price was down nearly 2% on Wednesday morning, its price has increased in recent weeks. The volume for the trailing 24 hours of UNI token was up more than 1% on July 20.

Now, before we discuss the recent developments of the UNI crypto, let's explore what Uniswap (UNI) is.

What is Uniswap (UNI) crypto?

Uniswap is a decentralized trading protocol mainly popular for enabling automated trading of decentralized finance tokens. Uniswap was launched in November 2018 as an automated market maker (AMM) but has gained a lot of traction since 2020 due to the increasing popularity of decentralized finance and crypto trading.

It focuses on keeping token trading automated and completely transparent to any user who holds tokens. In addition, it intends to improve the trading experience compared to other traditional exchanges.

Uniswap aims to provide more efficiency by solving the liquidity problems related to automated solutions and avoiding issues that hampered the decentralized exchanges.

Uniswap took a step forward in September 2020 by creating its governance token, UNI, for the users. This has helped improve profitability and enabled users to decide the future of Uniswap, which is an attractive feature of the decentralized entities.

The UNI token has gained traction in the market since it announced its acquisition of Genie, which claims to be the first non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace aggregator. Uniswap announced the acquisition news on June 20 and said it would expand its products to include ERC-20 tokens and NFTs.

In addition, the listing announcement of the UNI token on the Robinhood Trading app could have also helped in its recent gains. On July 14, Robinhood announced to list the UNI token on its platform.
