Uniswap Labs, the company behind the popular DEX, Uniswap, has revealed that their mobile wallet is currently accessible for download on the iOS App Store in various regions. The news was shared on the company’s official Twitter account with the message “THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”
According to the blog post, the Uniswap mobile wallet is a self-custody, open-sourced app that allows users to seamlessly swap tokens on Mainnet, Polygon, Arbitrum, and Optimism. Users can also discover top tokens by market cap, price charts, volume, favorite tokens, and wallet addresses and connect to any app on Mainnet or L2s with WalletConnect.
In addition, the Uniswap mobile wallet allows users to see NFT details like floor price, owner, and collection description, choose their security method with manual or encrypted iCloud backups, and get notified of any on-chain activity with push notifications. Users can also buy crypto using fiat with fees as low as 2.55%, compared to 5% on other popular wallets.
Self-Custody Made Easy With Uniswap
The company emphasizes the importance of self-custody in DeFi, stating that a self-custodial wallet is necessary to do just about anything on-chain, including swap tokens, buying NFTs, purchasing crypto, or using apps. This mobile wallet aims to make self-custody simple, safe, and easy to use.
Security is a top priority for the company, so they engaged Trail of Bits to conduct a comprehensive security audit. Additionally, the code for their mobile wallet is open source, allowing users to examine it independently.
According to the company, a Uniswap mobile wallet is a simple process akin to setting up an email account. The wallet has gained regulatory approval in numerous nations around the globe, and the firm intends to expand its reach to additional countries once it receives clearance from Apple.
Users who have been granted early access to TestFlight can proceed to the iOS App Store and obtain the application. The data and wallets that were added to the TestFlight edition will seamlessly transfer over.
However, Uniswap Labs encourages anyone interested in the mobile wallet to download it today and start trading tokens on the go.
