Over the past few months, there has been ample discussion about the protocol fee switch within the Uniswap community. Many of these discussions were prompted by high engagement forum posts and Temperature and Consensus Checks on the fee switch posted over the summer.

Uniswap Protocol Fee Switch: Technical Breakdown

October 6th, 2022
This past summer, a proposal was kicked off in Uniswap governance to assess whether and how to turn on the protocol fee switch. Because Avantgarde is a Uniswap delegate, I followed the conversation and debate as it evolved. As I considered how we should vote, I realized that there was not much information available on what “turning on the fee switch” actually meant from a technical perspective. I didn’t feel comfortable evaluating the downstream effects of turning on the fee switch with incomplete information, so I went digging.
