Will Uniswap save DeFI with grants?


Hey Moni Maker 👄

Today, in 2008, the first version of Android OS was shown at its first presentation. Hm…what else happened back in 2008? Correct! The worldwide financial crisis. Many people thought the ass coming to our faces would never let us leave it. 

So what? Remember. The darkest times are the parents of the things which provide the light later. It’s worth paying attention to such things :)      

Let’s go!

The news, of course, isn't fresh… it came out as recently as September 21st. But...but listen, back off, bro. It's a bear market, and good news even a month old is still good news...long story short.

The Uniswap Foundation, aka UF, has awarded $1.8 million in grants to 14 projects. All for developing the protocol, the DeFi sector and crypto in general. There are three areas of projects out there. Let us give you some of these, prepare your DYOR machine:
