Uniswap has declined by 6% in the past week.
UNI has lost a key support.
The cryptocurrency is bearish, but there are bullish signs.
Uniswap (UNI/USD) has been under pressure lately. The cryptocurrency was among those that were least shaken by the FTX collapse. The strengths were supported by traders’ exodus to decentralised exchanges. Days after the collapse, Uniswap became the second largest exchange on Ethereum trading volumes after Binance.
However, the Uniswap token is now under pressure. A loss of 6% in the past week took the cryptocurrency to $4.9, losing an important $6.0 support zone. Clearly, the bears have the upper hand after the cryptocurrency broke below the key level. The cryptocurrency recovered slightly by 1.50% on Thursday.
But there are positive developments that could increase the utility of Uniswap’s token. A Messari report on November 21 indicated that Uniswap was exploring a new product line. The report indicated that Uniswap would spend $165 million in the endeavour. That will see the introduction of swaps through Sudoswap and Genie XYZ acquisitions. The addition of swaps is expected to enhance Uniswap’s liquidity and boost the utility of the native token.
