Uniswap adds NFT management to the platform

The platform will airdrop $5 million USDC to users that used Genie

Uniswap also offers gas rebates to the first 22,000 customers


The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.

Uniswap launches NFTs on its platform, replacing the NFT marketplace aggregator Genie. Starting today, users can manage their NFTs in addition to ERC-20 tokens. 

Notably, the platform already supports several well-known NFT marketplaces. Among these are OpenSea, Foundation, X2Y2, LooksRare, Larva Labs, X2Y2, Sudoswap, NFT20, and NFTX.

To celebrate the launch, the company will airdrop over 5 million USDC to users that have previously used Genie, acquired by the company earlier this year. 

There are two tiers of airdrop recipients. Customers that completed more than one transaction before the snapshot, which was taken on April 15, will receive $300. Users that held the Genie: Genesis NFT before the snapshot time will receive $1,000. 

In addition, Uniswap will also offer gas rebates to the first 22,000 customers that will trade NFTs using the platform. It’s worth noting that the platform is powered by the Universal Router contract, which helps users save numerous gas units. Generally speaking, Uniswap enables users to save up to 15% on gas fees when purchasing NFTs across marketplaces. The offer is available through December 14 and is claimable starting from January 16. 

“Launching NFTs on Uniswap is our first step in building more interoperable experiences between the two,”

states the company’s announcement
