Uniswap enables automated transactions between cryptocurrency tokens on the Ethereum blockchain using smart contracts. Uniswap is considered a decentralized exchange utilizing liquidity pools as opposed to Binance, a centralized exchange serving as a market maker. Cunningham’s existing experience with the trading floor, trading traditional stocks, the Nasdaq, and NYSE all appear to be relative to Uniswap’s mission.

Back in May, Uniswap revealed it had surpassed $1T in trade volume across roughly 4 million addresses. This placed the exchange ahead of other players in the crypto sector such as Crypto.com and Kraken. On Wednesday, the DEX saw the price of Ethereum flash crash to $950 after a whale dumped 93,000 ETH over the course of six hours.
