Uniswap is preparing to debut on the Polkadot chain following successful governance proposals to deploy the popular decentralized exchange on Gnosis and Moonbeam.
Uniswap Launches Governance Proposal to Debut on Polkadot
On May 12th, voting commenced within the Uniswap community regarding a governance proposal to deploy Uniswap version 3 on Gnosis and Moonbeam, a Polkadot parachain powering DeFi applications.
Uniswap to Launch on Gnosis and Moonbeam
With both proposals succeeding with more than 99.99% of the votes in favor, Uniswap Labs announced on Monday, May 23rd, that the decentralized exchange would be launching on both Moonbeam and Gnosis.
This means that Uniswap will gain support for two new chains in addition to its previous integrations of Ethereum, Polygon, Optimism, and Arbitrum. The move could result in further endorsement for Uniswap, which has $7 billion in total value locked (TVL) as of this writing, making it the third-largest DeFi platform.
