Frequently Asked Questions
What is Uniswap Protocol?
The Uniswap Protocol is an open-source protocol for providing liquidity and trading ERC20 tokens on Ethereum. It eliminates trusted intermediaries and unnecessary forms of rent extraction, allowing for safe, accessible, and efficient exchange activity. The protocol is non-upgradable and designed to be censorship resistant.
The Uniswap Protocol and the Uniswap Interface were developed by Uniswap Labs.
Check out the Introduction section of our docs for more info on the different roles played by Labs, the Interface, and the Protocol.
How do I use the Uniswap Protocol?
To create a new liquidity pool, provide liquidity, swap tokens, or vote on governance proposals, head over to the Uniswap Interface and connect a Web3 wallet. Remember, each transaction on Ethereum costs Ether (ETH). For a more detailed walkthrough, check out our Help Guides.
