Bill Gates said: “Microsoft is always at risk of being bankrupt in 18 months.”
Back in 2018, people talked over whether Bancor or 0x would dominate the DEX world. Two years later, Uniswap emerged as a new generation power and took the cornerstone role of Ethereum DeFi ecosystem.
Looking though the current data among all DEX protocols, you will observe that Uniswap dominates more than half of total trade volumes. While turning to the “daily active traders” measure, Uniswap shows even more advantages far away from all the other DEXes.
These advantages could be our strength to win the battles, and they also could be a Achilles’ heel of the Uniswap team and our community.
Luckily, I got 800 UNI from the airdrop, and since then, I have become a member of the Uniswap community. In the past 3 months, I tried my best to play as a qualified member of the community. It’s quite an experience in my crypto life. I made some friends in the past 3 months, and sometimes also a bit depressed by the divisiveness among the whole communities.
As we already have many contributors in the community playing the role of “good cops”, I’d like to play as a “bad cop”. I will put all my mind on finding out “the killer weapon that could defeat Uniswap in 6 months”.
I hope the failure of mine will be the victory of the whole community.
