October 26, 2020 Uniswap and Curve trading volumes surpass $2B.

Trading volume on both the Uniswap and Curve decentralized exchanges surpassed $2B this week, increasing 1200% to reach $2.04B on the former. Both Uniswap and Curve utilize an automated market maker model rather than an order book model. The surge is presumably the related to today’s attack on Harvest Finance, with many concluding that the attacker utilized these decentralized exchanges to extract and convert funds from Harvest.
