In this short story, I will try to explain UNI minting process with etherscan’s datas.
In genesis , it is created 1.000.000.000 UNI in the uniswap space. The date is exactly 14/09/2020. Where does this information come from ?
“Uniswap Protocol: Deployer”, 14 transactions have been realized in this protocol.
400.000.000 UNI to “0x8fdb3816fe10e16aaa9b12b3c4688c873efe2eca”
and this account directly sent this UNI to the 84 person/institutions.
172.000.000 UNI to “Uniswap Protocol: TreasuryVester”,
This account sent 75.000.000 of UNI to the “Uniswap V2: UNI Timelock”.
TreasuryVester has 95.000.000 UNI now.
150.000.000 UNI to “Uniswap: Token Distributor”,
This account sent 132.000.000 UNI to users as a airdrop.
Token Distributor has 18.000.000 UNI now
129.000.000 UNI to “this account”, and 129.000.000 UNI is here now
86.000.000 UNI to “this account”, and 86.000.000 UNI is here now.
43.000.000 UNI to “this account”, and 43.000.000 UNI is here now.
20.000.000 UNI to “this account”.
This account sent this UNI to four different pool ( ETH/DAI, ETH/WBTC, ETH/USDC, ETH/USDT) in uniswap.
ETH/DAI UNI Pool — minted -4.990.000 UNI
ETH/WBTC Pool- minted- 4.997.000 UNI
ETH/USDC Pool — minted- 4.980.000 UNI
ETH/USDT Pool -minted -4.975.000 UNI
My algoritm says that there is nearly 550 million (1 billion — 449 million)UNI circulating in uniswap space.Nevertheless, etherscan says that 519 million UNI. :)
Thank you for listening to me. Special thanks to Hayden Adams because he didnt reply my questions.
