Avoid high transaction fees and gas costs
CoinList helps you navigate Uniswap mining
Deployment and Rebalancing. CoinList helps you as a liquidity pool provider (a "Participant") manage the rebalancing and deployment of funds into Uniswap liquidity pools.
Mining Reward Earnings. Participants on CoinList receive their pro-rata share of accumulated exchange fees and UNI tokens at the end of the Uniswap Mining program.
Simple Funding. On CoinList, Participants will be able to fund their Uniswap Mining participation with USD, USDT, BTC, wBTC, ETH, USDC, and/or DAI.
Participants must deposit a minimum of $1,000 to be eligible.
CoinList will deploy Participant's assets equally to each eligible Uniswap pool (ETH/USDC, ETH/USDT, ETH/DAI, and ETH/wBTC).
Participants’ assets will be rebalanced into approximately 50% ETH, 12.5% USDC, 12.5% USDT, 12.5% DAI, and 12.5% wBTC immediately prior to the deployment to the protocol; this allocation allows liquidity providers to put up a balanced amount of crypto into each pool (50% ETH and 50% of the counter-asset in each of the four pools).
There will be at least two deployments to the Uniswap Liquidity Pools for CoinList users.
The first planned deployment will be Oct 2, 2020, and the second planned deployment will be Oct 9, 2020. The deadline for providing assets will be the morning of the deployment i.e. Oct 2, 2020, 9:00 am PDT and Oct 9, 2020, 9:00 am PDT.
All funds will be retrieved from the protocol on Nov 17, 2020, and CoinList will plan to distribute the initial assets as rebalanced into the pooled assets to Participants prior to Nov 24, 2020, along with all rewards earned.

What is Uniswap?*
Uniswap is a protocol for exchanging ERC-20 tokens on Ethereum. Uniswap is one of the most-used crypto trading platforms with more than $20B traded since inception. Uniswap’s protocol design eliminates centralized intermediaries, allowing for fast, efficient trading.
Pioneer in Decentralized Trading
When you are trading using Uniswap, there is no orderbook, no centralized party and no central facilitator of trade. Rather than relying on order books to facilitate trade, Uniswap is an automated liquidity protocol. Smart contracts define standard ways to make liquidity pools and corresponding markets that are compatible with each other. Each pool is defined by a smart contract that includes a few functions to enable swapping tokens, adding liquidity and more.
In Uniswap's design, users contribute liquidity to each pool at a ratio of 50% of each asset by value (e.g. 50% ETH & 50% WBTC). When the Uniswap pool is out of 50%/50% balance, other traders have an incentive to rebalance the pool, but in doing so, the traders pay a flat 0.3% fee per trade. This 0.3% fee is passed to the users who have supplied liquidity to the pool.
Putting this all together, the end result is an extremely simple, easy, and efficient protocol to trade Ethereum based assets without centralized counterparties. Anyone can trade on Uniswap, add new pairs, or contribute liquidity to the protocol to earn liquidity rewards.
Uniswap is one of the most used applications on Ethereum with:
$20B+ in lifetime volume
250K+ unique addresses that have interacted with the protocol
8400+ unique assets available on the platform
Daily volumes greater than $100M
Uniswap V2 launched in May 2020 and has already facilitated over 8.6 million trades, accounting for 1/3 of transactions across all decentralized exchanges.
Maintained by the Community
With the launch of UNI, Uniswap will be fully governed by the community of network participants. 60% of the UNI supply is being distributed to users and liquidity providers – the Uniswap community will maintain the future of the project.
Unlike many of the novel DeFi exchange protocols, Uniswap has a long track record of stability and performance. Uniswap V1 was originally conceived and launched in 2018, and since its inception hundreds of thousands of users have traded billions of dollars of assets on Uniswap. Then, prior to launching Uniswap V2 (the current version) to the Ethereum mainnet, the protocol underwent a four-month long security audit administered by six dapp.org engineers. Their findings included three bugs and seven suggested improvements. None of the bugs were critical and all issues discovered in the audit have been addressed in the git repository uniswap-v2-core at commit 8160750.
Liquidity mining is a term used in decentralized finance (DeFi) applications where users supply liquidity to decentralized financial applications and receive rewards for doing so. In the context of Uniswap, liquidity mining refers to users (Liquidity Providers, or LPs) supplying both assets to a given trading pair market so that the protocol can execute trades.
Whenever liquidity is deposited into a pool, special tokens known as liquidity tokens are minted to the Liquidity Provider’s address, in proportion to how much liquidity they contributed to the pool. These tokens are a representation of a Liquidity Provider’s contribution to a pool. Whenever a trade occurs, the 0.3% fee is levied and is distributed pro-rata to all Liquidity Providers in the pool at the moment of the trade. The user is able to claim the fees when they take their assets back from the protocol.
Beyond receiving trading fees for supplying liquidity, liquidity providers on Uniswap for eligible markets will also receive UNI tokens for providing their service.
Liquidity providers will earn UNI proportional to their contribution liquidity. The UNI and ETH earned through liquidity mining are not subject to any vesting or lock up.

The UNI Governance Token
UNI is the newly announced governance token for the Uniswap protocol. UNI provides users and network participants with the opportunity to have a voice in the future developments on one of the most used applications in all of crypto. UNI delivers on the promise of crypto applications being fully decentralized and governed by the users who maintain and use the product.
UNI holders will have governance rights including:
Votes regarding the use of the UNI community treasury
Changes to the protocol fee
Uniswap Default List (tokens.uniswap.eth)
UNI is not being distributed via a token sale. Rather, the token will be distributed to network participants who participate in the network and supply liquidity to eligible markets on Uniswap.
One billion UNI have been minted at genesis and will become accessible over the course of four years. The Uniswap team has described initial four-year allocation as follows:
60.00% to Uniswap community members (600,000,000 UNI)
21.51% to team members and future employees with 4-year vesting (215,101,000 UNI)
17.80% to investors with 4-year vesting (178,000,000 UNI)
0.069% to advisors with 4-year vesting (6,899,000 UNI)
A perpetual inflation rate of 2% per year will start after four years, incentivizing continued participation in and contribution to Uniswap at the expense of passive UNI holders.

Eligible participants can deposit one or more of the following assets to participate:
- USD - USDC - USDT - DAI - wBTC - ETH
Before we deploy funds to the Uniswap protocol, we will need to rebalance participant's tokens into the eligible Uniswap pools. Funds will be rebalanced into the following breakdown:
- 12.5% USDC - 12.5% USDT - 12.5% DAI - 12.5% wBTC - 50% ETH
Users will bear any trading costs for conversion. Final conversions and fees will depend on the distribution of assets deposited for use in Uniswap Mining. Not all assets will be converted.
Assets you’ll receive at the end of the liquidity mining program
Eligible participants will receive each of the following assets at the end of the liquidity mining program:
- USDC - USDT - DAI - wBTC - ETH - UNI
Assets will be distributed pro-rata to all users who participated based on their original contribution amount, denominated in USD, at the time of conversion.
CoinList will take a 2% fee on accumulated liquidity rewards fees and UNI tokens
Tokens will be distributed to CoinList wallets on 11/24
