Following its launch, it took 42 months to reach the $1 trillion milestone in trading volume, achieved in May 2022. Since then, it has continued to expand its user base and trading activity, solidifying its position as the leading DEX in the market.

Uniswap’s dominance in the decentralized exchange space remains unrivaled, with a $21.6 billion in trading volume recorded over the past week alone, according to data from a Dune Analytics dashboard curated by one of the platform’s founders, Fredrik Haga.

In comparison, PancakeSwap, a fork of Uniswap, ranks second with $9.6 billion in trading volume, followed by Curve, Balancer, and Trader Joe, with trading volumes of $1.7billion, $1 billion and $800 million respectively.
