Uniswap (UNI) price has continued its impressive bullish form today as it closes on the key target of $10.00.
Fundamental analysis: Liquidity surges to $3.18 billion
Uniswap’s liquidity soared to $3.18 billion without any recent liquidity stimulus programs. The decentralized crypto exchange has previously awarded UNI tokens to Liquidity Providers (LPs). More specifically, these providers who offered liquidity to different pools were rewarded with 0.3% fees generated from these pools and UNI tokens.

The exchange ended its liquidity incentives back in November 2020, after which its liquidity plummeted from $3.36 billion to $1.52 billion. However, following that decline, Uniswap’s liquidity has been on a progressive rise and now stands at $3.18 billion.
MonetSupply and Coopahtroopa, both Uniswap community members, have recently put forward a fresh incentive program which intended to slash the monthly incentive allocation from 10 million UNI to 5 million UNI across four different pools.
However, the program got delayed for unknown reasons after gaining approvals in the first two stages. The proposal was never suggested as a formal governance proposal.
It remains to be seen whether the incentive will be reintroduced as a formal governance proposal. On the other hand, the exchange has seen a healthy surge in liquidity and is expecting the version 3 update.
Uniswap Grants Program became the first governance proposal in the exchange’s ecosystem to get a pass. This proposal aims to help Uniswap grow by offering grants to people and events, who have contributed to Uniswap’s expansion.
