Uniswap DAO, a key entity in the DeFi sector, has signaled strong support for a $12 million investment in Ekubo, a decentralized exchange on Ethereum's Starknet.

A preliminary vote showed that 63% of participating tokens favored the proposal. Ekubo currently has $2.6 million in total value locked and has been growing steadily. If approved, the investment will fund Ekubo's operations and benefit the Uniswap protocol. Despite the support, some in the Uniswap community have raised concerns about governance and valuation.
