The Uniswap group has voted in favor of launching the main decentralized change’s v3 iteration on layer-two scaling resolution, Arbitrum.
Uniswap’s creator, Hayden Adams, introduced the vote on Could 27, revealing the proposal’s governance vote obtained 41.35 million votes in favor and nil opposing votes from UNI token holders.
He famous that work is already underway to plan the deployment and design its interface.
Assuming the snapshot passes we intend to assist the group by deploying the v3 sensible contracts to Arbitrum!
We now have already begun work on interface assist and planning the deployment.

Arbitrum raised $3.7 million in 2019 to discover sensible contract scalability, and launched the first Rollup system for Ethereum in early 2020. Arbitrum claims to have achieved a discount in fuel prices of 55 instances for its testnet port of Uniswap v2 in November 2020, supporting 390 swaps per second in comparison with jusseven on the Ethereum mainnet.
Adams mentioned that the Uniswap group stays “extremely excited” for the launch of rival layer-two scaling resolution, Optimism. Adams famous Uniswap continues to be focusing on a deployment on Optimism for “the close to future.”
Optimism, which raised $25 million in a February funding round led by A16z, introduced in March its launch can be delayed, providing July as a “tough estimate” for mainnet launch.
Optimism’s delay has supplied alternatives for different second-layer scaling options to safe market share, with Polygon taking an early lead after Aave quickly attracted a 10-figure TVL on the community.
Arbitrum has additionally emerged as a significant layer-two contender, with the venture at present targeting Could 28 for its mainnet launch. Builders will initially have unique entry to Arbitrum after launch, permitting time for the community’s preliminary cohort of tasks to ascertain infrastructure and conduct testing.
In early Could, OKEx turned the primary main centralized change to allow deposit and withdrawal performance with the protocol. Arbitrum has additionally secured notable partnerships with The Graph, Bancor, and Biconomy.
In March, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin praised Arbitrum for its progress on Ethereum Digital Machine-compatible rollups.
Since launching earlier this month, Uniswap v3 has lived as much as its promise of delivering superior capital effectivity than its earlier incarnations, with v3 surpassing v2 by daily volume regardless of at present representing 26% of v2’s whole worth locked.
