The Ethereum creator made suggestions for the development of Uniswap in a forum post on the Uniswap Governance Forum.
- Buterin proposed that Uniswap should become an oracle token for fiat currency – oracles are used for transmitting and sharing price data and used to calculate liquidation prices and prevent 51% attacks
- He also outlined some of the current problems facing the decentralised exchange platform, including that UNI can currently be used as an oracle for ERC-20 coins, but cannot do so for outside currencies, such as the US dollar – this is a problem, he says, as it means UNI must heavily rely on stablecoins such as USDC to continue to operate
- Buterin ended his post by saying that Uniswap could be part of Layer 2 solutions for the Ethereum network and the DeFi space more broadly – something that could be seen as an endorsement by the Ethereum creator for the DEX project
- Uniswap is currently trading for $42.27, having seen a price increase of 41.3% in the last 30 days
