Celo Network crashes shortly after Uniswap v3 launch

Celo Network, the global blockchain payments infrastructure for mobile users, is currently stalled. The blockchain has not processed any new transactions in the past eight hours, according to the information available on the network explorer. This happened shortly after Uniswap v3 was deployed on the network.

Did Uniswap crash Celo?

Interestingly, the Celo network got stalled some hours after Uniswap v3 was deployed on the blockchain. 

Uniswap v3 is considered the most powerful version of the leading decentralized exchange yet. This version of Uniswap features “Concentrated Liquidity,” which offers unprecedented capital efficiency for liquidity providers, an advanced infrastructure, and better execution for traders.

The Celo Foundation, the Climate Collective, and two other projects on the Celo network assisted with seeding liquidity for several pairs into Uniswap v3 for Celo users. Many people speculate that the network downtime could be a coincidence or connected with the Uniswap launch. 

At the time of writing, CELO was trading at $0.8336. The incident didn’t cause any noticeable drop in the price of the crypto.
