Uniswap is a decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol that enables automated token exchanges on the Ethereum blockchain. It allows users to swap various ERC-20 tokens directly from their wallets without the need for intermediaries like centralized exchanges. Uniswap operates on the principle of automated liquidity provision, which means that users can trade tokens directly with a smart contract that pools liquidity reserves.

The core mechanism of Uniswap relies on liquidity pools, which consist of pairs of tokens. These pools are supplied by users who deposit an equivalent value of each token in the pair. The automated market maker (AMM) algorithm then determines the exchange rate based on the ratio of tokens in the pool. This model ensures that there's always liquidity available for trading.

Uniswap gained significant popularity within the DeFi space due to its decentralized nature, permissionless listing process, and relatively low fees compared to centralized exchanges. It has also become a cornerstone of the burgeoning DeFi ecosystem, enabling various financial services such as decentralized lending, borrowing, and yield farming.

Users can interact with Uniswap through its user-friendly interface or programmatically through its smart contracts. The platform's native token, UNI, is used for governance and incentivizing liquidity providers.

Uniswap has undergone several iterations, with Uniswap V3 being the latest version at the time of my last update. This version introduced concentrated liquidity, allowing liquidity providers to concentrate their liquidity within a price range, thus potentially improving capital efficiency
