Uniswap launches NFT Aggregator

Uniswap is also airdropping $5 million to some early Genie adopters

 Decentralized exchange Uniswap has launched an NFT Marketplace Aggregator, where users can now trade NFTs, on its native protocol.

The function will initially feature NFT collections for sale on platforms including OpenSea, X2Y2, LooksRare, Sudoswap, Larva Labs, X2Y2, Foundation, NFT20 and NFTX:

In a statement Uniswap said:

“To bring users the first-rate experience they’ve come to expect with Uniswap, we built the aggregator to deliver better prices, faster indexing, more unassailable smart contracts, and efficient execution.”

Uniswap developers claim that users can save up to 15% on gas costs compared to other NFT aggregators when using Uniswap NFT, which unifies ERC-20 and NFT swapping into a single swap router. Integrated with Permit2, users can swap multiple tokens and NFTs in one swap while saving on gas fees.

The NFT aggregator is powered by the Universal Router smart contract and optimized by UX smart contract Permit2, both Uniswap inventions.

According to the DEX, it “unifies ERC-20 and NFT swapping into a single swap router. Integrated with Permit2, users can swap multiple tokens and NFTs in one swap while saving on gas fees:”

To celebrate NFTs on Uniswap, the company are airdropping approximately 5 million USDC to certain historical Genie users and offering gas rebates to the first 22,000 NFT users. The company says it will also continue to be open-source, trustless, and self-custodial, staying true to their values of decentralization.

Genie Airdrop

Uniswap are distributing approximately 5 million USDC to certain historical Genie users to show their gratitude to longtime Genie users and welcome them into the Uniswap community.

Based on a snapshot taken on April 15, 2022 at 00:00 UTC, two tiers have been created for recipients:

  1. The $300 tier is available to wallets that completed more than one transaction before the snapshot.
  2. The $1,000 tier is available to wallets that held the Genie:Genesis NFT as of the snapshot.
    • Users are eligible per unique address, meaning multiple Genie:Genesis NFTs in the same wallet are only eligible once.
    • This tier is also available to wallets that purchased a Genie:Genesis NFT or a Genie:Gem NFT between 5:59 pm and 9:15 pm UTC on June 21st.

Users are eligible for both tiers and can claim their airdrop in USDC on app.uniswap.org for the next 12 months.

Connect your wallet and click the wallet dropdown in the top right. If you’re eligible for the airdrop, there will be an option to claim it!

Gas Rebate Promotion

To welcome new users, Uniswap will be starting a gas rebates promotion that begins today, ends on December 14, 2022, and is claimable on January 16, 2023 through the Uniswap app for 12 months.

The first 22,000 distinct wallets that purchase an NFT during this promotional period will qualify for a rebate on their first transaction. Partial transactions in which users successfully purchase some, but not all, NFTs are eligible for rebates. Failed transactions are not eligible. The gas rebate is capped at 0.01 ETH

  • If a user spends 0.01 ETH or less on gas, their transaction is fully covered.
  • If a user spends more than 0.01 ETH on gas, they’ll receive a 0.01 ETH rebate for that transaction.
