In November, the co-founder of Polygon, Mihailo Bjelic, submitted a proposal on the Uniswap governance portal to deploy Uniswap v3 on Polygon. On December 18, the proposal had received the support of more than 72 million Uniswap (UNI) token holders.
On December 23, Polygon deployed Uniswap V3 on its network giving users access to swap tokens using the Polygon blockchain via Uniswap’s official interface. In 2021, Uniswap facilitated over $600 billion in trading volumes on its v2 and v3 platforms.
