Android Users May Now Use Uniswap’s Mobile Ethereum Wallet

Uniswap’s wallet, which was released in beta, includes automated switching between the mainnet and layer-2 networks in addition to other capabilities.

On Thursday, Uniswap, a well-known decentralized exchange, unveiled a mobile cryptocurrency wallet for Android, months after accomplishing the same for Apple’s iOS operating system.

Before making the wallet more publicly available to customers, the business is now testing it with support from the DeFi community. Approximately 35,000 individuals have already joined the queue, according to Uniswap’s Twitter account.

As part of its Trail of Bits audit, the Uniswap Labs team will open-source the code concurrently with the beta launch. A cybersecurity business called Trail of Bits provides blockchain auditing services and creates Web3 tools to find and solve security flaws in smart contracts and other types of programming.

According to Bridgett Frey, a Uniswap Labs representative, the Android app is being released today in beta to “ensure we iron out” any problems as the company onboards more customers, with a more general release anticipated by the end of the year.

A blog post announcing the app’s beta launch promises split-second swaps, easy discovery of new tokens, and transparent pricing that seeks to highlight fees that aren’t immediately obvious to traders. According to the Uniswap team, the recently unveiled wallet comes with a set of features for what the firm thinks “makes a great swap.”

Another feature is automated transitioning between layer-2 scaling networks like Optimism or Arbitrum and blockchain mainnets like Ethereum.

According to Uniswap Labs, the Android wallet will automatically determine the intended target and perform the transfer for users who want to switch across layers. Access to Arbitrum, Polygon, Optimism, Base, and BNB Chain will be provided.

The sandwich and frontrunning attacks are two vulnerabilities that are often used in DeFi. In the former, an attacker sandwiched a swap between two transactions in order to benefit; in the latter, an attacker observes a pending transaction and submits their own swap knowing the price at which a token will be switched.

Uniswap has incorporated “swap protection” to the Android mobile wallet to safeguard consumers from these kinds of assaults. In essence, swaps now protect users from MEV attacks by defaulting to a private transaction pool.

The software was first made available for the Apple iPhone six months ago, and the Uniswap Labs team reported that it quickly rose to the top three downloads in the month it was made available. No download data were immediately available from a Uniswap Labs representative.

According to Frey, who spoke about today’s release, Uniswap Labs “always knew that we would want to quickly follow the iOS launch with an Android app, as Uniswap is a global product and much of the world does not use Apple.”

Regulatory criticism of the procedure has increased in recent months as a result of a class action lawsuit that was brought against it. Judge Katherine Polk Failla of New York finally dismissed the lawsuit against Uniswap, in what one legal expert called “a strange kind of anomaly.”
