The result from the cumulative transaction volume is a clear indication of how well the decentralized exchange’s ecosystem has been performing thus far this year. There is currently an anticipation for Uniswap V4, the exchange’s non-custodial, non-upgradeable, and permissionless automated market maker protocol. Uniswap says that the protocol will go live by Q3 of this year.

Noteworthy, the news about Uniswap V4 is another propeller of UNI’s price. On February 23, UNI made an outstanding gain of 70%, fueled by the decentralized exchange changing the fee mechanism to benefit those staking the UNI tokens.
