Starting today, Coinbase supports Uniswap (UNI) at Coinbase.com and in the Coinbase Android and iOS apps. Coinbase customers can now buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store UNI. UNI is available in all Coinbase-supported regions, with the exception of New York State.
Uniswap (UNI) is a token used for governance actions in the Uniswap protocol, a decentralized automated liquidity protocol built on Ethereum. Uniswap empowers developers, liquidity providers and traders to participate in a financial marketplace that is open and accessible to all.
One of the most common requests we hear from customers is to be able to buy and sell more cryptocurrencies on Coinbase. We announced a process for listing assets, designed in part to accelerate the addition of more cryptocurrencies. We are also investing in new tools to help people understand and explore cryptocurrencies. We launched informational asset pages (see UNI here), as well as a new section of the Coinbase website to answer common questions about crypto.
Customers can sign up for a Coinbase account here to buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store UNI today.
Coinbase holds UNI tokens and an equity interest in Universal Navigation Inc. (the company developing the Uniswap platform). Coinbase intends to maintain its investment in UNI for the foreseeable future and maintains internal policies that address the timing of permissible disposition of its digital assets, including UNI tokens.
