Uniswap to Launch on Gnosis and Moonbeam

With both proposals succeeding with more than 99.99% of the votes in favor, Uniswap Labs announced on Monday, May 23rd, that the decentralized exchange would be launching on both Moonbeam and Gnosis.

This means that Uniswap will gain support for two new chains in addition to its previous integrations of Ethereum, Polygon, Optimism, and Arbitrum. The move could result in further endorsement for Uniswap, which has $7 billion in total value locked (TVL) as of this writing, making it the third-largest DeFi platform.
