DeFi giant expands further into most hyped sector of crypto market
One of DeFi’s key players, Uniswap (UNI), continues to make its way into the NFT sector, integrating the decentralized NFT exchange sudoswap to provide efficient NFT swaps for users.

The final NFT trading solution on Uniswap is supposed to arrive by fall, but work on it is already underway as can be seen in the post above from Uniswap’s head of NFT projects.
This move is a logical follow-up to the June purchase of the NFT market aggregation platform Genie. While that deal gave Uniswap users access to NFTs from multiple trading venues in one place, the sudoswap integration will allow users to buy or sell NFTs in a decentralized way directly from Uniswap as well as create their own NFT liquidity pools. In addition, the platform is optimized for gas and only charges a 0.5% commission, which is five times lower than the main competitor, OpenSea.
Uniswap continues to expand in crypto space
The sudoswap integration greatly reflects Uniswap’s ambitions. First, the largest Ethereum-based DEX took half of the trading turnover from Coinbase, and now it seriously decided to take over the part of the market where such well-known NFT marketplaces as OpenSea and LooksRare rule.
The Uniswap team itself also speaks favorably of the most hyped and probably the most catchy segment of the crypto market, describing NFT tokens as a full-fledged form of value in a thriving digital economy.
