Uniswap Explained: How to Instantly Trade Ethereum Tokens
Uniswap has quickly become the top decentralized exchange to use for trading Ethereum and Ethereum-based tokens (ERC20s). Using the swap feature of Uniswap, you can instantly trade tokens on Ethereum without having to leave the interface.
A common use for Uniswap is for trading DeFi tokens — especially up and comers that may not even be listed on major exchanges like Bittrex and Binance.
In this tutorial, I quickly run through the swapping feature and show you how to convert ETH/ERC20’s into ETH or any other ERC20. I use BAT and DAI in this tutorial because of BAT’s latest rally in price.
It made sense for me to withdraw some BAT from a MakerDAO CDP vault that I have and then convert it into DAI and then use the DAI to pay back a portion of the collateralized loan that I had taken out.
Despite the high fees on the Ethereum network, swapping can be a lucrative game. Trading these new coins can also be a risky game, so swap at your own risk!
