Uniswap's UNI Jumps 60% on Proposal to Reward Token Holders in Major Governance Overhaul

Koen’s proposal is a significant development for the largest decentralized exchange by trading volume, marking a departure from last year’s initiative to reward token holders with accrued fees. Last June, the Uniswap community turned down a proposal that would have switched on fees for many of the exchange’s liquidity pools and distributed a part of the revenue among token holders. In an October move, the exchange started to charge a 0.15% fee on crypto swaps involving ETH, USDC and other tokens initiated on the protocol’s interface.
