Uniswap, the leading decentralized exchange, has announced an “unofficial community call” set for today at 5:00 pm UTC, as the call is scheduled to discuss several core governance issues central to Uniswap, including the future of its liquidity mining program.

It has been reported that after a slew of rival DEX clones sought to siphon away Uniswap’s users through exorbitant native token rewards to liquidity providers during the DeFi boom.

However, Uniswap retroactively airdropped its native token UNI to users and launched its own liquidity mining program in mid-September.

As per the report, Uniswap’s current liquidity mining program is scheduled to end on November 17, with the call set to discuss whether to extend the existing program or revise the scheme. The initial program allocated 5 million UNI for an airdrop to liquidity providers in total, equal to 83,333 tokens daily.

Many believe that the UNI airdrop and liquidity rewards program helped the exchange secure its position as the leading DEX in the face of numerous “vampire attacks.”

The program may now have a negative impact on the price performance of Uniswap’s governance token, with the rewards program airdropping more than $260,000 worth of tokens daily at the current price of $3.13 each.

Likewise, UNI began trading for around $3, with news of the liquidity mining program helping drive a rally to a high of nearly $8 within three days of the token’s launch.

It has been analyzed that UNI steadily dropped from September 19 through early November to post an all-time low of $1.80 on November 5.

Some traders believe a halt to the liquidity mining program would be best for Uniswap’s token, with Twitter user “Tetranode” telling his 5000 followers that putting an end to liquidity rewards and the associated selling pressure would lead to a new phase of price discovery for UNI.
