Google searches for 'Uniswap' are booming

Google keyword search volume for the “Uniswap” — a useful indicator of interest in DeFi more broadly — has reached its highest point since September of 2020.

Google doesn’t release raw numbers for search volume. Instead, it publishes scores between zero and 100, where zero is no interest in the term and 100 is maximum interest. The current score for “Uniswap” is 87. Last September, it got as high as 100.
