MATIC Soars to New All-Time High as Uniswap Launches on Polygon

Polygon season continues as the project finds even more use cases. In a new development, Uniswap – the largest decentralized exchange on the market – has been deployed on the Polygon network.

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.

Polygon (MATIC) Soars to New All-Time High

Following the announcement, MATIC, the native token of the Polygon network, began to rally, reaching a new all-time high in the process. On December 23, MATIC set a new ATH at $2.70 on the back of a 27% gain over the last seven days.
