After launching Uniswap Wallet on iOS in April of this year, the team at Uniswap has now made their product available for Android users.
The Uniswap Wallet app is built to replicate the trading experience on the Uniswap decentralized exchange (DEX).
Similar to many Web3 wallet providers, the Uniswap Wallet is designed to be interoperable, enabling users to switch between different blockchains.
In the case of Uniswap, users will initially be able to swap tokens between Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism, Base and BNBChain, with more chains to be integrated at a later stage, Uniswap Labs, the team behind Uniswap said in a blog post.
On-chain swaps will be protected by “swap protection,” which means that by default, a transaction will be placed into a private transaction pool, protecting users from frontrunning and sandwiching attacks. On the Uniswap Wallet, this tooling is provided by MEV blocker.
Fees will also be transparent, meaning that gas prices will be shown upfront — and a user will have the chance to either agree to the price or not.
The Uniswap Wallet will not be immediately available to all Android users, and Uniswap Labs has noted that there is a waitlist for those who are interested in downloading the application.
“Over the next few weeks, we’ll be adding people off the waitlist and getting early feedback from the community,” Uniswap Labs wrote. “If you want to be an early adopter and get special access to upcoming features, head over to wallet.uniswap.org to sign up and refer your friends.”
The code of Uniswap Wallet will be open-sourced, and audits will also be made publicly available.
Uniswap Labs did not respond to Blockwork’s request for comment before press time.
