Popular decentralized finance (DeFi) trading venue Uniswap said Tuesday it had processed $1 trillion in lifetime trading volume.

According to data from CoinGecko, Uniswap ranked first among decentralized exchanges by volume (DEX) with $1 billion in trading over the past 24 hours; top centralized exchange Binance saw nearly $15 billion in the same time frame. It's one sign that traders continue to prefer centralized exchanges over DEXes.

But Uniswap, originally an Ethereum project, continues to expand its reach across the DeFi ecosystem. It plans to deploy "Uniswap v3" on Gnosis Chain and Moonbeam Network next.

The DEX has seen a $500 billion increase in trading volume since Q4 of 2021, according to Uniswap data.

Beyond facilitating crypto trades, Uniswap also recently launched a web 3 ventures wing and tapped a new head of policy as it tries to navigate crypto regulation.

Uniswap did not respond by press time.
