- American crypto exchange Coinbase is making moves to bring decentralized finance applications Aave and Uniswap to Base.
- By adding these two DeFi apps to its base blockchain source, Coinbase will be able to provide its users with access to some of the most popular and innovative DeFi platforms in the market.
Coinbase, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges, announced on Monday that it will be adding two DeFi (decentralized finance) applications, Uniswap and Aave, to its base blockchain source. This move is part of Coinbase’s ongoing efforts to expand its services and offerings in the rapidly growing DeFi space.
Uniswap is a decentralized exchange (DEX) that allows users to trade a variety of ERC-20 tokens without the need for an intermediary. The platform is built on the Ethereum blockchain and uses a unique automated market maker (AMM) system to determine the prices of tokens being traded.
Aave, on the other hand, is a decentralized lending platform that allows users to borrow and lend various cryptocurrencies.
The addition of Uniswap and Aave to Coinbase’s base blockchain source will allow users to trade and lend cryptocurrencies directly from their Coinbase wallets, without having to go through a third-party service. This is a significant advantage, as it provides users with greater control over their funds and eliminates the need for them to transfer their assets to different wallets or exchanges.

Furthermore, by integrating these DeFi apps into its platform, Coinbase is also helping to promote the growth and adoption of DeFi in the broader cryptocurrency ecosystem. DeFi has been one of the fastest-growing areas of the cryptocurrency market, with total value locked (TVL) in DeFi protocols recently surpassing $100 billion.
