Valor, a Zurich-based issuer of publicly traded products (ETPs), announced the launch of a fully secured investment product to increase exposure to the native token of the decentralized exchange Uniswap, UNI.
The UNI token serves as the base value within the Valor Uniswap ETP offering, which is available as a fully secured passive investment product. The Uniswap ETP was launched on a European exchange called Boerse Frankfurt Certificates AG, co-owner of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
Valor CEO Diana Biggs highlighted the inaccessibility of blockchain-based investment products in traditional markets and exchanges.. Regarding Valor Uniswap ETP’s position in making DeFi investments available through key investment channels, he said:
“Uniswap ETP will offer investors the opportunity to get involved in areas of innovation, particularly in decentralized finance (DeFi).”
From October 25th Valor’s Assets Under Management (AUM) offerings rose more than 3.033% in 2021, exceeding $ 290 million traded on traditional exchanges. The Uniswap Protocol has exceeded a total trade volume of $ 500 billion since November 2018.
A Cointelegraph report dated October 19 attributes Uniswap’s increase in Layer 2 volume to high transaction fees on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain.
Hayden Adams, founder of Uniswap, estimates that Uniswap v3 has processed daily volumes valued at $ 115 million on the Arbitrum and Optimism smart contract networks.
