Uniswap eyes NFT financing, beginning talks with lending protocols for potential collaborations.
Brief introduction: Uniswap is a decentralised exchange protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain. More specifically, Uniswap is an automated liquidity protocol. Traders can exchange Ethereum tokens on Uniswap without trusting a single actor with their funds and can lend their crypto through liquidity pools. By lending their crypto to liquidity pools, token-holders can earn fees. Uniswap’s native token, UNI, provides governance rights to owners that can vote on changes to the protocol.

Uniswap’s Head of NFT Product, Scott Lewis, tweeted on Wednesday saying they are in talks with multiple non-fungible token (NFT) lending protocols
In 2019, Uniswap launched Unisocks, which was the first rendition of NFT liquidity pools
In June, the company introduced its acquisition of Genie, the first NFT marketplace aggregator, which lets anyone discover and trade NFTs across a large number of platforms
