Cross-chain interoperability will catalyze decentralized finance growth and opportunities. It is pertinent for existing and new protocols to gain traction across robust networks. Uniswap V3 will make its way to Boba Network and explore L2-based opportunities.
Uniswap V3 Expands to Boba
Most people know Uniswap V3 as the leading decentralized exchange. It has the highest volume of all DEXs, even if its liquidity has decreased somewhat in recent years. However, it's also a project that wants to expand to other compatible networks. Like other protocols, such decisions are often voted upon through governance tokens and a DAO structure. The decentralized governance approach aims to give everyone an equal say in these matters.
One expansion avenue for Uniswap is the exploration of Layer-2 blockchains. Numerous networks exist, including Arbitrum, Optimism, and Boba Network. That latter network will soon be home to Uniswap V3's trading solution, as the community voted to explore this option. Bringing the DEX to more networks will enhance overall liquidity and trading volumes.
Enya Labs' CEO and co-founder Alan Chiu adds:
“Boba Network’s Hybrid Compute will make it possible for ecosystem developers to build a new generation of hybrid on-chain/off-chain DeFi applications atop of Uniswap. While the Uniswap protocol will remain permissionless, developers will be able to build a compliant layer atop of it that leverages Hybrid Compute to tap existing, TradFi-friendly KYC/AML services. As a result, Uniswap will become more accessible to the larger institutional market.”
The Boba Foundation and FranklinDAO put forward the proposal to bring Uniswap to Boba. A total of 51.01 million votes registered in favor of this expansion. As a result, Uniswap V3 will roll out to the network over the coming few weeks. Moreover, the expansion ensures Uniswap will be active across six blockchains, including Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism, and Celo.
Why Boba Network Makes Sense
Bringing Uniswap V3 to another chain is about more than tapping into additional liquidity. It also expands the community to encompass members of Boba's multichain ecosystem. In addition, users benefit from faster transactions and lower fees, paving the way for new trading strategies. Furthermore, it gives Uniswap a broader appeal across Asian markets like South Korea and Japan.
A crucial objective is ensuring Uniswap gains sufficient traction on Boba Network. Therefore, the Boba Foundation has committed $1 million in BOBA tokens to prominent ecosystem projects fueling this adoption. Plus, the liquidity is a strong incentive to boost liquidity on Uniswap V3 through the Boba Network. Rewards will be distributed from a multisig wallet controlled by the Uniswap Grants Program and Boba Foundation.
For Uniswap, the rollout to a multichain layer-2 scaling solution is significant. Boba Network offers multichain support for Avalanche, BNB Chain, Moonbeam, and Fantom. As such, it isn't unthinkable to see Uniswap V3 expand to any of those networks in the future.
