The DeFi craze propelled Uniswap to $15.3 billion, surpassing Coinbase

Recent data shows that the DeFi drove Uniswap so far that it surpassed Coinbase Pro in daily volume for the first time on 30 August.

Data provided by Dune Analytics shows that the DeFi drove Uniswap. During September, the decentralised exchange, Uniswap, processed USD15.371 billion in volume. In the same period, reports indicate that Coinbase processed USD 13.6 billion.

The significant increase in Uniswap’s volume can be attributed to two main factors. First, the explosive growth of the DeFi ecosystem and the yield farming of governance tokens made decentralised exchanges flourish. Second, the launch of Uniswap’s governance token, UNI, caused a major stir on the platform.

June marked the beginning of the „madness“ over DeFi’s governance tokens, with the Compound COMP token kicking off the phenomenon. The process is relatively simple: DeFi users „cultivate“ new governance tokens by staking out various crypto currencies, such as Ether (ETH).
