Arbitrum has achieved a significant milestone by surpassing $150 billion in swap volume on Uniswap, making it the first Layer-2 network to reach this threshold. 

This record-breaking volume reflects Arbitrum’s increasing dominance in the decentralized finance (DeFi) market.

Arbitrum Surpasses $150 Billion on Uniswap

Since its inception, Arbitrum has focused on improving transaction speeds and reducing costs, addressing two of the most significant challenges facing the Ethereum blockchain. Its success has been evident, with a current total value locked (TVL) of $2.64 billion.

Arbitrum is positioned as the leading Layer-2 protocol. It trails only behind major Layer-1 protocols like Ethereum, Solana, Binance Smart Chain, and TRON, according to data from DeFiLlama.

The surge in Arbitrum’s trading volume comes amid broader adoption of its platform. Uniswap recently confirmed that Arbitrum has become the most utilized Layer 2 solution on the decentralized exchange (DEX).

“It’s official. Arbitrum is the first L2 to pass $150 billion in swap volume,” Uniswap said.

Despite this operational success, the price of Arbitrum’s native token, ARB, has experienced volatility. After the announcement, ARB’s price briefly rose from $1.06 to $1.12 before returning to its original price. More importantly, ARB has seen a 28.33% decrease in value over the last month, with its market capitalization dropping from $4.19 billion to $2.81 billion.

The significant trading volume of $150.2 billion reported this month marks a substantial increase from previous months, with figures standing at $148.70 billion in April and $112.71 billion in January 2024. This growth trajectory has sparked discussions among investors and analysts about the potential long-term impacts on the Layer-2 market.
