At the time of writing, MATIC is trading near $2.64, the asset has increased by 24% over the past week. The token’s market cap has exceeded $18 billion, according to CoinGecko.
After the integration, the price of the native Uniswap token (UNI) has also increased significantly in value. UNI has advanced by 10% at the time of writing and is trading near $16.80.
The rise in Ethereum network fees has effectively ousted the majority of users. With this initiative, Uniswap as the flagship decentralized exchange on Ethereum is returning to its original vision and once again offering low fees and open access for everyone.
Uniswap is the largest decentralized exchange in terms of the trading volume. According to DeFi Llama, its smart contracts have already been deployed across two tiers Arbitrum and Optimism. In the first, the volume of locked funds (TVL) reached $62 million, in the second TVL crossed $37 million. TVL Uniswap at Polygon has already reached $6.10 million. Over the past 24 hours, the trading volume in this network has exceeded $2.22 million.
Opera announced integration with Polygon. Opera users will have access to decentralized applications deployed on the Polygon network.

Opera, the world’s top web3 browser, today announces its upcoming browser integration with Polygon. The integration is due in the first quarter of 2022 and will allow millions of Opera users in the browser to access more than 3,000 decentralized applications (dapps) on the Polygon network. Opera’s built-in crypto wallet will also allow them to transact with MATIC. Opera currently has 380 million monthly active users.
Polygon is also bringing an upgrade to its network with a testnet release known as the Mumbai test network, similar to the EIP-1559 update on the Ethereum network that will introduce the burning of Matic and better fee visibility.
