It looks like people spent more than $7 million on ETH gas for Uniswap since at the time of writing deduced from the data of EthGasStation the decentralized exchange Uniswap was pointed as the place in which the customers have spent their Ethereum (ETH) the most on gas payments throughout the previous 30 days. Following the latest Ethereum news, we read more about the analysis.

Uniswap was key in stimulating the Decentralized finance, known by his other name DeFi, boom of 2020 for now, providing speculators a location where they can take assets in association with the crypto market. Some of the assets of the DeFi have spiked aggressively as a consequence of the speculative season that reminds to those seen in 2017. Following zealously with this action are Ethereum gas prices.
However, the increase in gas cost can pose a systematic risk to the ecosystem and is holding back the usage of decentralized finance. Between ETH 2.0 and the second layer, the latter offers less negative trade-offs for the entire ecosystem. DeFi protocols, on the other hand, will lose a lot of potential users if the non-power users are not able to afford Ethereum. The ETH Gas fees hit 200 Gwei today, posing a huge threat to the mass adoption of Defi. Some previous moves to increase the gas limits didn’t do anything but enrich the miners of the networks. The push for layer two is seen as the most viable solution to reduce the costs of using ETH.
Also, an Ethereum whale pushed the price of the asset on Uniswap to $450 with a $18 million order as the buyer lost more than $2 million on the transactions because of slippage.
