Happening to clarify why we’d need to add ETH/ERC20 pairs, he reveals that Uniswap has been persistently beating Coinbase’s stablecoin DAI/ETH pair by over 7x on 2 completely different variations of the Uniswap protocol.

Out there knowledge exhibits that the 24-hour quantity for DAI/ETH pairs by way of Uniswap was $1.9 million.

It was $1.5 million on Uniswap’s first model, and solely $0.2 million on Coinbase Professional.

Responding to a advice to distance himself from the Uniswap challenge, because it’s (finally) imagined to “decentralized,” Hayden remarked:

“I feel [Uniswap] is already decentralized.”

Hayden, a talented Ethereum developer, added:

“I feel I will help construct a v3 that’s 100x higher than v2 so not able to cease contributing to the protocol. However agreed, Uniswap doesn’t want me and that ought to be made clear (just like Vitalik, Robert, and so forth.)”

Whereas addressing a query from Ryan Sean Adams, the founding father of Mythos Capital and distinguished crypto investor (who requested if Hayden actually believes CEXs like Coinbase can’t compete with Uniswap), the Uniswap creator stated:

“Crypto banks [or centralized exchanges] are gatekeepers. They’re the bridge to fiat. Their politics will both speed up bankless crypto or sluggish it down. I hope they select to be a bridge to cash protocols not a barrier.”
