Delegate statement

We aspire to enable the long-term adoption of Uniswap as the center of liquidity expansion across the multichain DeFi ecosystem.

What do you want to see happen in Uniswap governance over the next year?

  1. Multi-chain expansion: This benefits both Uniswap and the different chains by unlocking liquidity in their ecosystem. We’re firm believers in a multi-chain future and we believe that everyone will benefit from such expansions.
  2. Concrete and sustainable fee switch solution: A long-discussed topic with many potential mechanisms and trade-offs around each solution. We believe it should be one of the main priorities to solve over the coming year.
  3. UI/UX improvements: Adoption doesn’t happen without simplicity. We believe that being an LP is a complex operation in order to be profitable; there should be mechanisms in place so that less sophisticated users can visualise metrics such as Impermanent Loss and Fee Collection in Uniswap Dashboards. We’d like to challenge the DAO on considering such improvements.

Reasons for wanting to be a delegate:

We believe in a future where the market share between CEXs and DEXs is evenly split. To enable this adoption, a proactive and flourishing DAO with delegates from all around the world sharing different perspectives or expertise is a must. As a crypto-native market maker and a power-user of Uniswap among other DEXs, we believe we can provide valuable insights to scale liquidity across Uniswap.

Skills and areas of expertise:

Keyrock is a technology-driven digital asset market maker active on 85+ trading venues worldwide.

Our specialties in trading, DeFi innovation, liquidity management, and treasury management while being a delta-neutral entity can ensure that the Uniswap DAO will always have a power user providing fruitful feedback and ideas for protocol improvements.

What are your views on 3 past Uniswap governance proposals?

Uniswap v3 Gnosis: We’re in full support of the expansion into the Gnosis Chain once Security risks & Bridges are evaluated as seen in the proposal.

Uniswap Deployments Accountability Committee: The creation of this committee will enhance efficiencies and we see a lot of value in having valuable members make Governance procedures more streamlined.

Create v3deployments.uniswap.eth subdomain and populate its text fields: The establishment of subdomains for v3 deployments is crucial and we’re massive believers in the transparency that ENS domains can provide. Full support of this proposal to avoid malicious deployments.

Top Issues

Cross Chain deployments

Cross-chain deployments are a crucial step towards expansion of liquidity in DeFi while benefiting Uniswap stakeholders.

Fee switch

Fee switch is a complicated matter that we believe is very important to be solved and applied while benefiting all stakeholders in a compliant way. We look forward to finding a collective solution.

DAO working groups

We would like to discover the idea of creating “expertise Working groups” around multiple verticals and build upon the idea of the Accountability Commitee.

Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest:

Keyrock is currently active in Governance for protocols such as Aave.

We will be expanding our Governance participation over protocols that we’re power users of and believe we can provide valuable feedback.


22/05/23 - 28/05/23

{TEMP CHECK} - Uniswap V3 Deployment to Fantom

Reason: We were in support of this multi-chain expansion into Fantom that is supported by Axelar network. After we voted, the Multichain hack happened and so while we support the vote, we’d like to maintain cautiousness until the dust settles.

Voted YAE

{TEMP CHECK} Deploy Uniswap v3 on Base

Reason: We are in support of deploying Uniswap V3 on Base.

Voted YAE

29/05/23 - 04/06/23

{TEMP CHECK} Deploy Uniswap V3 on Linea

Reason: We support this deployment and see a lot of growth potential considering the Consensys ecosystem and potential awareness push.

Voted YAE

{TEMP CHECK} Deploy Uniswap v3 on Base

Reason: We are in support of deploying Uniswap V3 on Base. Base is a promising L2 that most of the DeFi protocols will want to deploy for adoption & growth.

Voted YAE

{TEMP CHECK} Making Protocol Fees Operational: Fee options for V3

Reason: We support a conservative approach of starting with 1/10 and testing up to 1/5 as we said on the discussion here. We believe that 1/5 could become aggressive but are open to test and observe the differences.

Voted 1/10

{TEMP CHECK} Making Protocol Fees Operational: Initial deployment chain

Reason: The risks of deploying this on Polygon are low considering it represents less than 3% the V3 TVL.

Voted Polygon

{TEMP CHECK} Making Protocol Fees Operational: Asset to be held in the treasury

Reason: We believe a healthy diversification of stablecoins and ETH will be a good approach. As we can only choose 1 asset with this vote, USDC is our vote.

Voted USDC

12/06/23 - 18/06/23

[Temperature Check] Deploy Uniswap v3 on Filecoin Virtual Machine (FVM)

Reason: We support the expansion of Uniswap on FVM.

Voted YAE

[Temperature Check] Deploy Uniswap V3 on Scroll

Reason: We’re supportive of a multi-chain future for Uniswap and thus Scroll is a great ecosystem to deploy.
Voted FOR

[Temperature Check] - Deploy Uniswap V2 on all chains with V3

Reason: Supportive of this deployment.
Voted FOR

[Temperature Check] Deploy Friendly Fork of Uniswap V3; ZERO Protocol on Polygon zkEVM

Reason: This is an interesting approach where the DAO could participate in meta-governance.
Voted FOR

[Temperature Check] Migrate the Celo Uniswap V3 Factory Contract owner from Optics to Wormhole

Reason: We’re supportive of this migration.
Voted FOR

Fund Combined Liquidity Incentivization Program

Reason: After long feedback during RFP process, it is great to see all the entities coming together with this joint proposal.
Voted FOR

[Temp Check]: Complete initial funding of the UF

Reason: We support the completion of funding UF.

Voted Yes

UADP Team Election

Reason: Abdullah Umar has been a great contributor to the Uniswap DAO and we feel that he will represent Uniswap accordingly within the Arbitrum DAO.

Voted Abdullah Umar - @Michigan Blockchain

UAGP Team Election

Reason: For the UAGP, we believe that Nneoma from Stablelab has the experience through multiple incubator participations and Ignacio has been actively reviewing grants for a long time on Enzyme.

Voted Nneoma_Stablelab , Ignacio Rodriguez

Temperature Check - [Issue a Visa Card with Uniswap Logo ]

Reason: This proposal is not something the DAO should be reviewing as we don’t think the trademarks and logo IPs are owned by the DAO.

Voted Against

[Temperature Check]: Invest in Ekubo Protocol

Reason: We are against investing in Ekubo at the current format of the proposal. First of all, the DAO is not a VC. There could be a committee reviewing those type of proposals in the future but it’s not our place now.
Second, the valuation is unreasonable to say the least in a relatively speaking small ecosystem. As far as we know, Ekubo is not even audited yet at all.
Lastly, Ekubo is asking on top of the investment - 2.5M UNI to be delegated to them.

Voted No Change

Create a UNI-ARB Grant Program (UAGP) and Protocol Delegate Program

Reason: We’re supportive of the UAGP and the Protocol delegate program as they can establish long-term benefits within the Arbritrum ecosystem for Uniswap.

Voted FOR

Reason: We support this friendly fork and are curious to see the effects it will have on Polygon zkEVM

Reason: We support the funding of UF.
