How to buy Uniswap

UNI

One of the first automated market makers (AMM) to go live on the Ethereum network, Uniswap is a decentralized exchange (DEX) that uses liquidity pools to make markets without the need for order books or central facilitators. DEXs use smart contracts to facilitate trades and don't use custodial wallets. Its asset token is UNI. You can buy and sell UNI for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade UNI for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade UNI to CAD based on the UNI price. To learn how to buy Uniswap / UNI, scroll down to see how to buy Uniswap.

Since its inception in 2018, and inspired by Ethereum’s vision, Uniswap has long committed to the ideals of permissionless access, security, and immutability, creating a world where anyone can access financial services without fear of discrimination or counterparty risk. Its token UNI was created in September 2020 to make this vision a possibility. Owners of UNI can use it as a governance token and participate in decisions on how the platform is run. Since decentralized exchanges like Uniswap don’t have a middleman, traders can swap tokens directly with one another.

You may want to consider buying UNI if you would like to:

Diversify your portfolio by introducing a variety of cryptocurrency assets

Explore the Uniswap ecosystem – a growing network of DeFi apps

Contribute to shared liquidity pools and earn rewards

Exchange it for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin to buy and sell goods online
