This high fee structure, even though it could be because of the high trading volume occurring on the DEX, could lead users to shy away from using the platform and turn to other cheaper alternatives.

According to Dune Analytics, Order flow toxicity on Uniswap also increased. Order flow toxicity refers to the negative impact on liquidity caused by market participants placing large, aggressive orders that push prices away from fair value.

This can lead to a negative experience for other traders and can ultimately lead to a decline in trading volume on the platform.

In addition, Dune Analytics’ data showed that the number of organic transactions on the protocol declined. For the uninitiated, organic transactions refer to normal trades made by regular users.

On the other hand, the growth of arb and sandwich transactions increased. Arb transactions refer to trades that take advantage of price discrepancies between different markets, while sandwich transactions refer to a specific type of trading strategy that aim to profit from the spread between two different markets.

These factors could be the reason why whales became disinterested in the Uniswap token. As they exited their positions, the price of UNI fell. This also affected the MVRV ratio, which declined along with the price.

The declining MVRV ratio suggested that the UNI holders sold their positions for a profit. The negative long/short ratio implied that the sell-off was primarily done by short-term holders.

Whether Uniswap’s high fees will ultimately lead to its detriment remains to be seen. The platform’s popularity and trading volume will probably play a significant role in determining its future success.

At the time of writing, the price of UNI was $6.29. It increased by 7.12% in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
